Whether you need a gift for your dad, grandfather, husband, uncle, or friend, Father’s Day is right around the corner, so the gift shopping should have happened, well — I hate to say it, but — a few weeks ago. Don’t worry, I am behind, too! How is it June already?!
While I love shopping — especially for other people — shopping for the men in my life can sometimes be a struggle, which means it ultimately gets put off until the very last minute. Mom, sister, friend? Easy! But, what can I get my dad that I know he will like and actually use?
Plus, with Amazon Prime making it so that almost anything can be at your doorstep in a day or so, I sometimes forget this is not the norm. Hence, the emphasis on the *last minute* part of this article. So, whether it’s too late to order a specific something or you’re just clueless about what to give, check out these last-minute Father’s Day gift ideas that the dads in your life are guaranteed to love.
- Try a subscription box.
When in doubt, a subscription is a great gift! Not only can it be purchased instantly, but it is something thoughtful and personal that most people would not buy for themselves. It can also be a great way to find an activity to do together, like cooking, and bond with your dad. If cooking is not his thing, try a wine subscription, coffee subscription, ice cream subscription, or even a shaving subscription.
- Pick up some coffee table books.
Have a golf fanatic on your hands? This coffee table book, 150 Golf Courses You Need To Visit Before You Die, is a great way to feed into their golf addiction. It is fun to look through, looks great as decor, and gives them something to look forward to doing in the future.
- Find something useful on Amazon Prime.
If you need something that will show up on your doorstep ASAP, try looking for products on Amazon Prime. I saw this gift idea in a TikTok from Sophia Lee a while ago, and thought it was genius! I had to save it for the perfect occasion. If you’re shopping for a business man or frequent traveler, this is the perfect duffle bag, as it unrolls into a garment bag so they can easily pack their sports coats or whatever garments they may need. Plus, it’s less than $50 on Amazon Prime. It is so innovative and something someone would never buy for themselves, so this will be a much appreciated gift.
- Get supplies for backyard activities.
- Go catch a game.
If you have a sports fanatic on your hands, try purchasing tickets to a game. Whether you want to go see the hometown heroes or travel to his alma matter, this is a great way to spend quality time together in a way that he will love. Also, if you are a little more last minute to the gift-finding process, you could tell him to pick a weekend that works best for him and purchase the tickets after the fact.
- If all else fails, beef jerkey bouquet.
I saw this during my research, and I just had to include it. If your dad is constantly buying bouquets for the women in his life, turn the tables and give him a bouquet in return, especially if he is a meat lover. Not only is this idea so original, but it’s also guaranteed to get some laughs and be a great snack for the day.
