I get it. Sometimes these holidays sneak up on us. And thanks to the pandemic, it’s easier than ever to get foggy-brained and busy, making it more likely that things will slip through the cracks. So, if you haven’t picked up a gift for the dad in your family yet, don’t stress yourself out. There are several last-minute Father’s Day gifts that you can quickly grab and he will be totally oblivious to your lack of preparedness. (I say that with zero judgment).
In the early 1900s, community leaders started what would be a decades-long battle to solidify the importance of Father’s Day and have it recognized nationally. A proclamation signed by Richard Nixon in 1972 finally made it a federal holiday and since then, the third Sunday of June has been dedicated to celebrating and appreciating the dads in our lives.
Some people do that by gathering and treating dad to a big feast at his favorite restaurant, and some dads just like to spend the day resting or
enjoying activities at home. But one constant is finding the gift that hits his sweet spot. And one of these will definitely fall somewhere on his radar.
To fit your particular dilemma, most of them have fast shipping.
