Last minute Father's Day gift ideas
Father's Day is almost here. If you have yet to get your dad (or your hubby) a Father's Day gift, don't worry. Procrastinators still have time to find some great last-minute Father's Day gifts.
Dinner with the family
Father's Day gifts don't have to be tangible items. Dad probably has acquired enough "things." Instead of giving him a cheesy last-minute gift that he won't use, plan a special dinner with the family. Serve all of Dad's favorite foods at home, or take him to his favorite spot to eat. It doesn't matter if it's a casual affair as long as Dad and the whole family are having fun.
A day at the ballpark
For the sports fan dad, there's not a better gift than tickets to watch his favorite team play. Hop on TicketMaster.com or StubHub.com to order tickets online, or plan to spend the day at the ballpark to see a team in your area play. Whether it's major league, minor league or college sports, it doesn't matter if your dad enjoys the game.
If your dad still loves reading in print, you can give him a gift that he'll enjoy all year long by purchasing subscriptions to a couple of his favorite magazines. You can order magazine subscriptions online with ease. In addition to magazines, gift of the month club subscriptions (wine, beer, fruit or treats) can also be a good idea, depending on his interests and tastes.
A tee time
If Dad is an avid golfer, book him a tee time at a golf course at which he's been wanting to play. You can also head to the nearest pro shop or sporting goods store and find a small gift to supplement his tee time — like a new golf glove, bag or balls. You don't have to spring for a new set of clubs, but certainly they would make him very happy.
Excitations, Cloud 9 Living and other websites offer unique experience gifts that your dad will love. From extreme sports to unusual classes, you can select from a number of extraordinary experiences. If you are not sure exactly which experiential gift your dad would love the most, you can order a gift certificate and allow him to pick his own experience.
Gift cards and certificates aren't consider a tacky gift if you choose the right one. Select a gift card from a specialty shop suited to your dad's hobbies or from a restaurant that you know he enjoys. You can order gift cards online and have them delivered via email, or you can print the certificate out and hand-deliver it to your dad inside a greeting card.
