Holiday Help: Last Minute Ideas for Father’s Day

Father’s Day is quickly approaching on June 21. What do you have planned? If the answer is nothing, don’t worry! There’s still time to get dad, your uncle, grandpa or anyone else in your life a little something to show your gratitude.


For the Music Lover

It might be 2020, but taking a trip back to vinyl days will be a blast from the past for Dad. If you don’t have a classic record player, we can pretend! Check out this bluetooth system with a retro look.

For the Sports Lover

Sporting events might be on hold, but that doesn’t mean you can’t bring the game home. Put on your favorite team’s jersey, play a classic game on TV, grab the snacks, and enjoy! Even go as far as rolling up a t-shirt and throwing it into the “crowd” during the seventh inning stretch. End the day by playing ball in the yard. Need a gift? Check out these baseball bat mugs on Etsy.


For the Man Cave

Does Dad have a man cave? Is there something that’s been on the list of things to add? Perhaps a large TV, a rare autographed poster or a mini fridge? Stock up the cave with all the things that have been sitting on the wish list.

For the Outdoorsman

Looking for an activity to do instead? Plan a day out in Mother Nature. Head to the lake to fish, the park to go on a hike or the beach for some fun in the sun. Don’t forget the sunscreen!


Piece it Together

Can’t find a gift basket? Make one yourself. Find a central theme and build on it. Think about items for the gym – from weights to a water bottle, phone strap, or new sneakers. What about a wine basket, with cheese, crackers and of course, wine? Does Dad need some help grooming? There are a ton of options for those. Check out these baskets on Amazon.

Fire up the grill

No gift? No problem. Sometimes the best gifts aren’t material, but rather, memories. Grab some groceries and through steaks, chicken, and veggies on the flame. Play some tunes and have a nice afternoon in the backyard or park.


How are you spending Father’s Day? While I’ve never tried these linked options myself, let me know if you do! Whatever you decide, remember, it’s the thought that counts, especially during times like these.


Until next time…
