Last Minute Dad’s Day Gift Ideas (From the Experts!)


dad cookies[The following post was written by the smart, savvy and totally rad ladies over at]

As we all know, buying a gift for Dad is nearly impossible as he either seems to have everything or you just have no idea what he would want.  This causes most of us to procrastinate on buying him a gift, and then having to scramble at the 11th hour and settle for a gift that is less then mediocre. (Read: a tie.)

So if you that fit the description above, don’t worry; you still have some time this year (not much, but at least a day or two).  I have compiled my list of amazing gifts to give Dad that can all be shipped this week and make it just in time for the special day.

I got your back, ladies.

The Top 6 Last Minute Father’s Day Gifts:

Eleni’s I LOVE DAD Cookies: Eleni’s makes the cutest and most delicious sugar cookies.  They come wrapped in an elegant gift box and can be preserved for up to 1 week if the box is opened.  The box contains 18 cookies spelling out “I LOVE DAD” surrounded by cookie hearts.  The cookies cost $37 and must be ordered by 12pm PST on Thursday, 6/18.

BBQ Apron & Tool Set: If your dad loves to “man the grill” (or “dad the grill”…wait, that doesn’t make sense) then this is a perfect gift to give him. This durable apron serves as both an apron and carrying case that holds all the tools that Dad will need to grill.  Plus the apron has compartments that Dad can place the tools in while grilling.  This set costs $45 and must be ordered by 12pm PST on Thursday, 6/18.

Twelve Ways You Made A Difference: While you may not think that your dad would appreciate a sentimental gift, you are wrong!   Any dad would love a book that expresses your love for him and tells him how much of an inspiration he has been to you.  Each page prompts you to fill in a new message for Dad.  This is a keepsake that he will have forever.  This book is $28 and must be ordered by 5pm EST on Friday, 6/19.

iChime “Play Anything” Doorbell
:   If your dad likes music and has a good sense of humor, then this is a great gift for him.  He can customize the doorbell by recording his own voice or from a CD or MP3 player.  This gift is really fun and hilarious for both Dad and all of his visitors.   This device is $89 and must be ordered by 12pm PST on Thursday, 6/18.

Bacon of the Month Club: This bacon is known as being the best around.  Loved by Rick Bayless and Jim Gaffigan, the bacon is nitrate free and comes in a variety of flavors and assortments.  Prices vary based on the amount of bacon you wish to send, starting at $40.  You can order this gift up until Sunday as all you do is have to print a gift receipt online.

Wines of the World Monthly Club: For the dad that has an extensive wine collection or that simply enjoys a nice bottle of wine from time to time, giving him a membership to a monthly wine club is a great idea.  Each month Dad will get two bottles of wine delivered to his door from boutique vineyards around the world (and all the wine is rated about a 90+).  This gift costs $149 for a 3 month membership and must be ordered by 12pm PST on Thursday, 6/18.
