Father’s Day always seems to sneak up on people. Maybe because it pops-up when it seems like Mother’s Day just happened.
Needless to say, it’s not unusual to be scrambling for a last minute gift for dad. Of course, you still want it to be great and show your appreciation for all that he does.
Here are nine last-minute gifts that fit the bill.
For some reason, dads tend to use the same wallet for way longer than they should. If that’s the case with your father, then this is the perfect gift opportunity to replace his ratty old wallet with a crisp new one.
The Alpine Swiss leather wallet has plenty of clever card and bill storage while maintaining a slick look and slim profile. It also comes conveniently packaged in an Alpine Swiss gift box, so you don’t have to worry about the presentation.
If your dad loves games and the outdoors, then there’s no better summer game than bocce ball. The classic game has become a beach and backyard staple. It’ll be perfect for your dad’s next barbecue.
Amazon has its own set that’s both high quality and convenient. The set comes with everything you need to play, including four green balls, four red balls, one white pallino, and even a measuring device (for those competitive dads out there). Everything fits compactly into a convenient carrying case.
Does your dad fit the typical summer grillmaster mold? If your father loves to barbecue, then chances are he loves all things grill-related, including the tools that help him perfect his burger flipping craft.
This heavy-duty grill tool set is just what the father ordered. After all, a grill maestro is only as good as his or her tools. The set includes three stainless steel grill tools — a spatula, fork, and tongs — with beautiful rosewood handles. It also comes with a handy tote with pockets for each tool for when you take the barbecue outside of the home and when the sad day comes when it’s the end of the season and dad has to store them for winter.
Shaving is probably the most frequent and important skincare exercise for men. And yet, so many guys simply buy any old razor and shaving cream without a second thought. If that sounds like your dad, do him a favor and upgrade him with this luxurious shaving kit.
The set comes complete with a brush, brush stand, an apothecary mug, and hypoallergenic shaving soap. It will immediately upgrade your dad’s shaving game, much to him and his skin’s delight.
Maybe your dad is one of those cool dads who is always in style, or maybe he needs a little help in that area. Either way, these super cool sunnies are a perfect dad’s day gift, especially given that summer is just beginning.
These sunglasses feature polarized UV400 protective lenses housed in a stylish matte finish frame. They also come with a hard case, soft pouch, and lens cleaners. You can’t beat the value for this price.
Don’t freak out if you really waited until the last minute to get your Father’s Day gift. You don’t have to head to your local pharmacy and get a half-cooked present just yet. Check on Groupon or Living Social for experiences or vouchers that your dad may love.
You can look for a voucher for your dad’s favorite restaurant. If you want something more unique, both platforms are often filled with cool experiences and activities that make great gifts cause they’re fun but people rarely buy them for themselves. This is a great option because even though you know it’s last minute, it comes across as very thoughtful and personalized.
Chances are that your dad had a record collection at some point in his life. Unlike other outdated technologies, records are making a comeback due to their unique and better sound quality compared to digital music.
Your dad will relish dusting off his old collection and playing them on this great little player, which also has convenient Bluetooth compatibility in case he does just want to pop on a playlist from his phone.
Nobody knows how to relax better than dad. Treat your dad to one of the best ways to relax in the summertime: a hammock. This is an especially great gift for dads who are avid readers.
This particular hammock is a great value. It’s made with high-quality cotton and comes in a variety of colors. You can hand it with tree straps in between two trees or it is also compatible with hammock stands.
Open your dad’s tastebuds up to the beauty of freshly ground coffee. If your dad is a daily coffee drinker, he’ll appreciate the freshness of grinding his own coffee beans in the morning before brewing a pot of coffee.
Ground coffee is the freshest right after its ground, so he’ll notice a big improvement in the taste of his morning coffee. Even better, he’ll think of you every time he makes it! Krups makes a compact, effective, and reliable coffee grinder that’s easy to use and clean.
