Last Minute Father’s Day Gifts

By Leana Lares, CBS Radio

CHILDREN (and mommies) OF ALL AGES! Father’s Day is quickly approaching, and whether you were aware or not, you have to go get that special man in your life a gift. So… what to get him?

Here’s a list of awesome last minute gifts that he’ll love:

1. Grilling Tools

What do dad’s do best? They grill and barbecue and whip up the most insatiable foods that make your mouth drool! So how can you make this simple gift super awesome? Tag each tool with a cute little saying. For example, tag the grilling spatula with something like “DAD, I FLIPPIN’ LOVE YOU!” How cute is that?

2. Jar Up Some Candies

Go grab a cute little jar and fill it with his favorite pieces of candy. On the jar you can tag another cute little saying like “I LOVE YOU TO PIECES” or “YOU’RE THE SWEETEST.” No man, no matter how manly, can deny his sweet tooth. Plus, you can grab some candies for yourself when he’s not peaking… mmmm!

3. Picture Collage

Almost every family has a box or a room with a stash of old (or new) pictures. What better to do with them than to put them on display?! Go to the store and grab a cork board and some push pins and create a big collage of pictures that he can hang up somewhere. I know it may sound cheesy, but I’ve done it for both of my parents and they both cried when they saw it. You can even add some little mementos to the collage as well!

4. Cologne

Go get some awesome cologne and manly lotions so he can smell like a man. If you want to make it more humorous, I’d write a little tag and tell him he stinks. Anything to make this ‘last minute gift’ seem more thoughtful.

5. Socks

I don’t know about you, but I love getting socks as a gift… socks are awesome! For Father’s Day, get your dad some awesome and fun socks to spice up his day to day attire.
