This Sunday, June 15 is Father’s Day 2014, meaning you have less than a week to locate a gift, pack it up or wrap it up, and sent it to your dad. While Father’s Day isn’t nearly as stressful when it comes to finding a great present as the winter holidays, birthdays or even Mother’s Day, if you have a fellow in your life whom you feel like showing your appreciation for, Sunday’s the day to do it. Forget to get a present? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered with these 10 unique, fun gifts for your dad.
1. Longitude & Latitude Cufflinks, $25
How stunning are these cool cufflinks? If you are faraway from your parents, or have some special place in your heart that you and your dad both love (a vacation spot, perhaps), gift these amazing custom Etsy crafts to your dad.
2. The Art Of Shaving Starter Kit, $25
I’ve seen this set up close, given it as a gift, and it is fantastic. In fact, it comes from the same brand I recommended for women to try out in my “Men’s Grooming Products Women Should Use” guide last week. You could revamp his whole grooming regimen with one simple gift!
3. A local play or comedy show
While you may not be able to buy your dad a vacation or Broadway tickets just yet, you could go for something simpler and get tickets to a community theater production or standup comedy show. The most important element of this gift is that go see it with him if possible–that way you can spend time together and treat him to a night out.
4. Blind Surprise, $25
This isn’t your average subscription box. It’s a great service where you can surprise another person (or yourself!) with a present based on his or her likes and demographic, so he’ll get an interesting fun gift from the company and it will be a total surprise–even for you!
5. Backyard Farmer DIY Pickling Kit, $24
Like I said in the Mother’s Day gift guide, this is the absolute perfect gift for a parent who wants to get into doing crafts and having more hobbies, but isn’t sure where to start. If your dad is remotely into pickles or, in general, food, he’ll likely love this–especially if he’s recently retired and looking for something to do with his time.
