Let's not say you procrastinated. Rather, you simply forgot that Father's Day is coming up on June 20 because you've been so caught up in what to get the OG guy in your life, and, well, we're still very much in the middle of a pandemic. Save yourself the time and stress with these last-minute Father's Day gift ideas, below, that are totally worth the express two-day shipping fee or rushed in-store pickup. Whether he's into sports, art, fitness, tech, or cooking, there's a Father's Day gift idea for everyone on this list.
We've even taken the time to break all of the best Father's Day gifts down by their price point. Most of the items on this list are priced at under $100, but there are a few pricier items on this list, too, from brands like Apple (because he needs the brand-new AirPod over-the-ear headphones!), Loro Piana (because he loves to watch Succession and has been trying to emulate the Roy family's larger-than-life style lately), and Mejuri (because a classic gold chain necklaces are never not a great gift for your very stylish dad.) I've even bought some of the gifts on this list for my own father, so consider them officially dad-approved.
Keep scrolling to shop all of my favorite last-minute Father's Day gifts, and prepare to become his new favorite child for the rest of 2023.
