It’s not that you don’t adore your dad – far from it – but Father’s Day seemed to come out of nowhere this year. We can relate. Fast approaching, Dad’s big day is this Sunday, June 17th.
Not to pile on the pressure, but that equals only five shopping days left.
The good news? It’s not too late to let your fingers do the walking and order something quick, easy, and thoughtful from the comfort of your own laptop. The better news? Your procrastination may be rewarded in form of free shipping or a sweet discount.
Read on for our top point-and-click Father’s Day gifts. Add a bow and you’re set to go!
1. For the BBQ Super Hero
Whether he’s a Captain America or more of a wise-cracking Iron Man, he’ll love a Marvel apron from Williams-Sonoma. Gently-priced at under $30, they also come in kids’ sizes. Wouldn’t a mini-Hulk look adorable grilling steaks with Dad?
2. For the King of Cool
A copy of Dads Are The Original Hipsters by Brad Getty will set you back only $13.95 at Fred Flare. From the blog of the same name, this book proves once and for all that Pops invented anything and everything even remotely awesome. Deliver with a pack of Post-It flags, for easy future reference.
3. For the Sharp Dresser
Marked down to just $44.75 (from $89.90), Ralph Lauren’s Madras Twill Sport Shirt from Dillard’s is the ideal way to intro Dad to the modern men’s print-mixing trend. Will he pair it with his famous striped golf pants? Perhaps a polka dot tie? Watch in wonder – and be ready with your camera phone – as the fashion fun ensues.
4. For the Metro Man
Dallas-made, environmentally-friendly, and downright addictive, Kale Naturals are just for men. Gift Dad a Skin Repair Cream, Bamboo Face Scrub, Smooth Shave Gel, or any number of other products (priced from $15), along with a promise not to “borrow” them back for yourself. He’ll appreciate the sentiment, even if you eventually can’t resist.
5. For the True Original
Dating back to 1935, the Sperry Canvas Boat Shoe is an American Original – just like your Dad. At $70, they ring in at the high end on our list, but they’re all but guaranteed to become his go-to weekend pair. Choose from plaid, solid navy or olive, or the cool, color-blocked look shown here.
