This is one of the perfect last minute Father’s Day gifts you can get for the man who has everything! Gift cards are easy to get and use, plus you have a ton of options when it comes to choosing the right gift card for the special man in your life. Does he like tools? Home Depot and Lowe’s have gift cards. If he prefers gaming or reading, try a Game Stop or Barnes & Noble gift card. The possibilities are endless!

Now, many people may think that a gift card isn’t personal enough as a gift for a loved one, but I beg to differ. It’s hard to shop for a man sometimes, but a gift card can show him that you thought of him and appreciate him. Plus, he can use it whenever he wants, and can buy that new tool or gadget that catches his eye. If you are looking for something with a tad more thought into it, you can always choose the next item on this list.

2) Coupon Book

Almost every mom or dad has gotten a coupon book, and for good reason. Not only is this a fun last minute Father’s day gift to make, but you can customize it any way you want! Even if you have younger kids, they can join in on the ideas and creativity too! You can offer options such as a massage, a day without the kids, a dinner date, game night with the guys, or any number of things.

If you want to go the super easy route, you can always just write the coupons on a piece of paper. If you want to make it a little fancier, try creating an actual booklet, and package it up nicely.

3) A Day Off

Don’t have the cash to offer too much but still want to surprise the dad in your life with a gift? Give him a day off! Who doesn’t love having a day where they don’t have to do anything at all? Take the kids out, and just let dad relax for the day. To make it extra special, you could always treat him to pizza and a nice cold drink.

Even if you don’t give dad the full day off, at least give him a few hours. Since Father’s Day falls on a Sunday, most likely he will have to go back to work on Monday. Give him some time to recoup and prepare for the week ahead. I’m sure he would appreciate it.

4) Breakfast in Bed or Dinner

Who doesn’t love eating without having to cook? If you have an early riser, try waking up a little before him so you can make him breakfast in bed. The kids can join in on this too! One can cut fruit, or pour the orange juice. If your kids are older they could also prep items like pancakes or eggs.

If breakfast isn’t his thing, try dinner. Make him his favorite dish, and don’t forget the beer (or whatever his favorite drink is). Not only is this one of the easiest last minute Father’s day gifts to prepare for, but you can say you planned for it the entire time, even if you didn’t!

5) Best Dad Item

This is more of a gag gift, but it can still be fun to give! If you can find a best dad award, coffee mug, or other item, you have the perfect last minute father’s day gift. Who knows, dad may be proud enough to show it off. These are fun to give if you have a dad who is hard to shop for and has no clue how much he means to the family. Just keep in mind that you may make him tear up.

Don’t let a lack of time, money, or energy keep you from getting a Father’s day present for that man in your life. These are great options for last minute Father’s day gifts, and you can customize all of them to fit the man of honor.

What will you be getting your Dad for Father’s Day?



My name is Derek, and I have my Bachelors Degree in Finance from Grand Valley State University. After graduation, I was not able to find a job that fully utilized my degree, but I still had a passion for Finance! So, I decided to focus my passion in the stock market. I studied Cash Flows, Balance Sheets, and Income Statements, put some money into the market and saw a good return on my investment. As satisfying as this was, I still felt that something was missing. I have a passion for Finance, but I also have a passion for people. If you have a willingness to learn, I will continue to teach.


  1. I’m partial to #3 and #4 myself 🙂 Mr. Adventure Rich typically enjoys either a relaxing day off or an adventure day, which are fun for the whole family (and my dad is actually the same way!). I haven’t made breakfast in bed for him in ages… maybe I’ll give that a try on Sunday!

    • Yup, I’m with him! Either alone time or an adventure!

  2. The wife is going to make one of my favorite desserts. Raspberry truffle pie!
