Father's Day is fast approaching, and if you're anything like me, that means you're on a frantic search for gifts. Hey, sometimes these holidays just sneak up. With that in mind, these last minute Father's Day gifts will help you save face with dear old dad. They still look like you put a whole lot of time and effort into the whole gifting process.
Now, depending on when you read this list and what items you decide to buy, it might be necessary to pay for a little extra shipping to get the goods to your dad in time. (As someone who routinely waits until the last minute to get gifts, I consider this paying the procrastination tax.) But for the most part, these gifts are still available and easy enough to get in time, especially if you're fortunate enough to have Amazon Prime on your side.
Whether your dad is geeky, outdoorsy, practical, or something else entirely, there's a quick gift on this list for him. Hey, everyone can use an extra umbrella or hat, right? Read on to find the perfect gift for your father that will still get here in time for Father's Day 2018 on June 17. It's less than a week away, but you can still make it.
If you're really pressed for time, then an emailed gift card may be the best option. This Dollar Shave Club card offers your dad a whole variety of grooming products at a discount price. But if your dad already has a solid grooming routine, then there are a ton of other cards for restaurants, retail stores, and even services such as Airbnb or Uber. It can still be a personalized and thoughtful gift.
A trendy plant can liven up your dad's desk, living room, or kitchen window. It's a fresh gift that will remind him of his beloved kid every time he sees it. Best of all, you can arrange to have the plant delivered directly to him.
If your dad is a grill master, then this is a thoughtful gift. The wraps will give whatever you're grilling an infusion of Pacific cedar and alder. It's an easy way to spice up some grilled veggies with almost no effort.
Give the gift of sun protection. This shirt helps block UVA and UVB rays while keeping your dad cool. It's perfect for hiking, running, or pretty much any outdoor activity — even just washing the car in the driveway.
Even if you're just jotting down a grocery list, there's just something satisfying about writing with a heavy-duty pen. These retro designs come in a variety of colors, but I'm partial to the houndstooth design.
