It's June, and school is finally letting out for the summer. With the kids at home all day, your schedule is probably all over the place. It's no wonder that you only just realized that Father's Day is right around the corner. If you're anything like me, you are just now beginning to frantically research last-minute Father's Day gifts for your husband.

You would think that husbands are easier to shop for than wives, especially when it comes to essentials like clothing. Men's clothes tend to run pretty true-to-size (unlike women's clothing where a size 8 in one brand is equivalent to a size 2 in another.) But because moms tend to run the household, they are often much more aware of the kinds of things that their husbands need rather than what it is that they really want. Dads may be in desperate need of new socks, underwear, and undershirts, but what they want are fun gifts or high-tech gadgets.

Before you enter the bulk undergarment department at Costco, take a little time to check out the kinds of gifts that your husband will truly love. Here are some Father's Day gifts that you still have time to get.
