TGI Tips: 5 Dad Gifts You Can Give Last Minute

While we don’t recommend waiting until the day-of to find a gift for Dad, for the years it inevitably happens, here are some thoughtful ideas you can send, print or give last minute. And we mean literally, five minutes before brunch.

Trunk Club Last Minute Gift

1.  A New Wardrobe in a Trunk –  Leave picking out clothes for Dad to the professionals. Give him a printable gift certificate to TrunkClub, a company that does his shopping for him and delivers in a trunk right to his door (he can conveniently send back anything he doesn’t like.)

2. iPhone/iPod Apps – Does Dad have all the gadgets but no clue what to do with them.  Help him out and download some apps from iTunes for him that fit his interests. iTunes.com

3. Box of Awesome – Give dad a subscription to Bespoke Post and they will send a “Box of Awesome” handpicked with cool and curated products to Dad each month. Give 1, 3 or 6 months. Their Junes box is s a collaboration with DETAILS Magazine and full of summer essentials like foldable sunglasses.

4. Personalized Magazine Cover – Pick Dad’s favorite hobby (Golf, Fishing, Hunting, etc) upload a photo a photo of him to YourCover.com and choose funny headlines to make him the star of his own magazine.  Print out on you computer and find an inexpensive frame at your local drugstore. $12.95 + frame.

 5. Of-the-Month Clubs – Whiskey of the Month Club, BBQ of the Month Club, Sock of the Month Club. These subscriptions keep on giving, look thoughtful but really can be ordered a couple hours before it’s time to head out the door.

We all know EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU have waited until the last minute to find a gift at some point … tell us what you have scrounged up before you needed to head your annual Father’s Day gathering?  Comment below or on our Facebook page.
