Last Minute Gift Ideas for Father's Day

If you're anything like me Father's Day popped up out of nowhere this year. Maybe it's COVID-19 and maybe it's just that summertime feelin', but it's here. Happy Father's Day to all the dads and dads-to-be out there. I know some states have started opening up retail stores and some have not, so I am recommending some things I think you can easily find online, subscriptions, etc. to make this last minute would be crisis a thing of the past.

Book of the Month subscription

If your dad loves to read this is the perfect gift. Allow dad to spend more time reading and less time figuring out what to read. He'll be able to choose 1 of 5 different selections each month with the additional option of adding on books.

Blue Bottle Coffee subscription

If your dad loves coffee this is the perfect gift. In fact this is what I got my own dad this year. Starting at $72 for a 3-month subscription that your dad can choose blends, single origins, and espressos—sourced by hand (by Charlie) from sustainable coffee farms. Then he'll receive a 6 oz. blend every other week for a total of 6 shipments.

Masterclass or Skillshare subscription

If your dad loves to learn this is the perfect gift. Masterclass offers thousands of lessons taught by the best in their field. Each class includes on-demand videos that can be watched at your own pace, a class workbook with optional assignments, and an online student community. Skillshare is an online learning community with thousands of classes for creative and curious people, on topics including illustration, design, photography, video, freelancing, and more.

YETI cooler

If your dad loves fishing or ice cold beer this is the perfect gift. YETI Coolers was founded with a simple mission: build the cooler you’d use every day if it existed. Extreme insulation power and durability are the bare minimum requirements for every cooler they make. They have hard coolers that don’t flinch in the face of snowstorms, the beating sun, or even bears, and our soft coolers are leakproof, waterproof, and quick to carry. They also have foldable lunch bags, that’s for ice-cold drinks and a fresh meal.

23andMe Ancestry & DNA kit

If your dad wants to learn more about his ancestry and DNA this is the perfect gift.

Right now 23andMe is offering this deal on their website:

Dad's Day Offer: Enter your email to unlock $50 OFF one Health + Ancestry kit or $150 OFF when you buy two. Offers end June 21.

23andMe is all about all about real science, real data and genetic insights that can help make it easier for you to take action on your health. My husband and I both did these tests and were fascinated with our results.
