The Procrastinator’s Guide to Father’s Day

Perfect Last-Minute Gifts for All Types of Dads

BY Catherine Casey // 06.16.16

Still searching for the perfect gift for Father’s Day? No problem, we’ve selected the perfect gift for every type of dad out there.

For the Athlete Dad

The newest trend in the world of exercise is the fitness tracker. The Fitbit Blaze Smart Fitness Watch provides stats on calories burned, steps taken, heart rate and more. You can also get your sporty dad a new golf jacket or swimsuit to keep him looking smart at all his athletic endeavors.

For the Outdoorsman Dad

An expert griller needs a top-notch cooler to throw the perfect BBQ; Yeti coolers are the perfect addition to any summer soirée. Or give dad a Go-Pro so he can document all his outdoor adventures.

For the World Traveler Dad

If dad is a frequent flyer, try a new luggage piece or traveling toiletry set. In addition, Monocle Travel Guides are excellent travel books that offer recommendations for local experiences.

For the Entertainer Dad

The ultimate gift for this father is a retro record player and entertainment center. He can charm his guests with vinyls, or transfer them to a computer to pass on to future generations. Or indulge him with Corkcicle Whiskey Wedge glasses so he can serve — and enjoy — drinks without having to drink watered-down cocktails.

For the Sharp Dressing Dad

Keep your pop looking his best on (and off) the job. A new bow tie or elegant cuff links are great for any formal affair. If he likes to keep it casual, a pair of Cole Haan drivers or a new summer shirt will keep him snappy.
