Last Minute Gift Ideas for this Father's Day


You know he won't say it, but deep down, he does really appreciate you getting this gift for him.

Fathers have a very special bond with their kids. Well, most of them. They usually work behind the curtain, so to speak, to give us a better life. In ways that they believe to be the best.

We don't realize this until we are all grown up and then start appreciating the hustle he put himself through just so that we could have whatever we wanted. Well, most of the things we wanted.

So, this Father's Day, why don't we buy something for him? For the man who stepped on his dreams just so you could move up.

Gift Idea

While dads are not the biggest fans of gifts, it is no reason to not get them something they've always wanted! Sit and think hard. Is there something your father has been ranting about? Like a new phone, or a laptop, or maybe even his old shoes?

Dads will never directly tell you what they need but will mention how the absence of the said thing is annoying him. So pay attention to the cues, and who knows, you might just hear what he wants for a gift.

If you can't find any, you can just simply ask them. Most dads don't expect their children to straight-up buy something that they just mentioned. Ask if there's something he needs, or has been wanting for a while. This should yield a pretty good result.

Dad too stubborn to get a new phone? Get his old phone repaired. At least until you convince him to get a new phone.


The good 'ol gift card. You can never go wrong with a gift card.

Is it lazy?


But is it useful in a pinch when you've forgotten about Father's day?


A gift card also takes the responsibility off of your shoulder in case you were having a hard time deciding what to get. Some people have a hard time deciding, and a gift card is the best solution to that. It could be anything! From Amazon products to personal products, the sky is the limit! Give your dad a gift card and let him decide where he'd want to spend it.

What's that? You would like to make some effort and actually give him something thoughtful?

Well no worries, we have got you covered here as well! Talking of cover, you might want to cover your clothes for this one.


Yes, you read that right. You can actually arrange for a cookout specifically for your father. I mean you should definitely include the rest of the fam, but the guest of the hour would be your father.

Cooking is one of the best ways to exchange ideas and get to know each other. The bond that comes from sharing the same kitchen is something else. You could learn his super secret recipe, or maybe teach him something you learned back in college. The options are galore!

Let's say you don't have the necessary cooking skills. And would still like to sit down with the man and have some food. The next best thing you can do is take him out for dinner.

Get a reservation in a good restaurant. Doesn't have to be the costliest or the fanciest. Dads are the last person to care for where they go and spend time with their children. If your father is a working individual, this will also be a good change of things for him.

Just because it's Father's Day, doesn't mean you have to give him a gift the same day.

When was the last time your father took a break from everything just to take a breather? If you can't remember it, then I think you know what gift you can give him.

A vacation!

Now, not everyone is financially well off, so it is understandable if you can't send them somewhere far. But that is the thing! It doesn't have to be somewhere far, or a fancy place. He'd just be happy to stay at home and not do anything as he'd be if he was on a beach in Goa or Bali. Maybe a little more in the latter.

Gift Idea


At the end of the day, I think everyone's dad knows that their children love them. They might not be able to give them any sort of present, but that doesn't demean the love children have for their fathers.

Even a hug will work perfectly.

Gift Idea

Yes, a simple hug. Although one shouldn't need a special occasion to hug their father, or any of the parents for that matter. But everyone has to start somewhere. So go hug your dad and thank him for everything he has taught you and done for you over the years!

A very happy Father's Day to all the dads out there working tirelessly for their families!
