Last Minute Gifts For Father's Day
Father’s Day is quickly approaching, and with dad being one of the hardest people to find a gift for, time can seem like it’s running out. The good news is, it’s not. A last-minute Father’s Day gift can be as thoughtful and meaningful if you do it right. In fact, some of the most useful and appreciated gifts are ones that come together at the last second.
We’ve compiled a list of some quick, easy, and meaningful last-minute Father’s Day gifts.
Push Him To Start Something New
Every dad has something he’s always wanted to do but can never find the time for. Whether your pops wants to try his hand in the kitchen or learn a new language, there are countless classes that make the perfect last minute Father’s Day gift. Bonus points if you two can do them together.
Here are some ideas:
- Cooking classes
- Beer brewing class
- Workout classes/personal trainer
- Pottery workshops
- Woodworking classes
- Pilot classes
Groupon has tons of deals on hobby classes and they can be purchased at the last minute.
Help Him Out Around The House
You might have thought the days of doing chores for your parents were over, but if you’re looking for a last minute Father’s Day gift your dad is sure to appreciate, look no further than his to-do list. Taking a chore off his plate, whether it’s mowing the lawn, repairing something around the house, or freshening up a room with a new coat of paint, means that he has more time to relax on his special day. Plus, you can crack open a cold one with him afterward and spend some quality time together.
Get Everyone Together
Cooking a family style dinner for that dad in your life is a fun and easy last minute Father’s Day gift, and is also a good excuse to get the family together. Prepare a menu ahead of time, do all the grocery shopping, and invite the whole family over for a home-cooked meal. Not really the chef type? These easy dinner ideas look much harder than they actually are, and are sure to impress the entire group.
Let Him Know How You Feel
Sometimes, we don’t find the time to tell the ones around us how much they mean to us, so take some time to write a letter sharing how thankful you are to have him in your life. This last minute Father’s Day gift is sentimental, meaningful, and can be done right before the holiday. In your letter, you could include some of your fondest memories of him, his traits you most admire, and the most valuable life lessons he’s taught you. If you have a little bit of time, go the extra mile and buy a frame for your letter or present it in a more formal gift box. The man who has everything is sure to appreciate the thoughtfulness of the gift, and keep it close for years to come.
Get Him Writing
It may seem too good to be true, but a great last-minute Father’s Day gift can help dad live a happier life. While most Father’s Day gifts will make dad happy, that feeling usually fades as most gifts sit unused until they find their way to the donation pile. A gift that keeps on giving is the Five Minute Journal. This little book may seem simple, but it is proven to combat negativity, and help those who use it to be happier and improve their outlook on life. Perfect for the dad who loves self-improvement (...or maybe just needs a little attitude adjustment!)
Give Him A Classic
Last but not least - the wristwatch - one of the most traditional and sentimental gifts that will never go out of style. Watches have stood the test of time as a gift-giving staple. A watch is practical, stylish and sure to impress the dad in your life. We recommend one of our men’s watches, which are offered in a variety of colors and styles. The handcrafted, high-quality designs are actually affordable, thanks to our streamlined manufacturing.
Shipping doesn’t usually take long, and expedited shipping options are also available. If time is really tight, a gift card makes for a convenient and practical last minute Father’s Day gift. Not only is this delivered electronically within minutes, but it also allows the recipient to choose the style they like best - eliminating any guesswork on your end. Get together on Father’s Day and decide collaboratively on what style he should get (and maybe get one for yourself to match).
Like we said, a last minute Father’s Day gift doesn’t have to be a doozy. Sure, sometimes, we procrastinate and things sneak up on us, but we hope this list makes this Father’s Day a tad easier. Just remember, be thoughtful, make it meaningful, and make it personal, and you’ll be sure to get him something that he’ll love and appreciate. At the end of the day, Father’s Day is about showing your love and appreciation for the father or father-figure in your life.
