And, to help you speed things up even more, we’ve already done the legwork for you, rounding up the best last-minute Father's Day gifts on Amazon—all of which will be on his doorstep in two days or less.

When Is Father’s Day?

Father’s Day falls on the third Sunday of June each year, and this year, it happens to be Sunday, June 19. A little-known fact on the the celebration of fatherhood? While it was widely supported as an honorary holiday for many years, with a bill being introduced to Congress to make it national as far back as 1913, it was not until President Lyndon B. Johnson declared the third Sunday in June a day to honor fathers in 1966 that it would succeed, eventually being passed into law in 1972 by President Richard Nixon—the same year of the first official Father's Day.

What Are Good Father’s Day Gifts?

You can't really go wrong if you keep your dad’s interests in mind. Consider what he's into: Does he like relaxing at home? Get him some new slippers. If he's the rugged type, outdoorsy items that will satisfy his hobbies or home DIY urges will be a hit. Always snacking? How about a jerky bouquet? Frequent flier? There's a toiletry backpack for that. Most of all, give from the heart—a sweet gift will show him just how much you appreciate all that he’s done for you.

The 81 Best Gifts for Dad That He'll Actually Use (and Won't Abandon in the Garage)

1. Leatherology Leather Rfid Wallet

Best for the Practical Dad

  • Why We Love It for Dad: Slim, stylish, protects against theft

It’s time to give dad a major upgrade on his barely holding it together wallet. This pure leather one is slim enough to fit in a back pocket, but still manages to fit six credit card slots, a single bill compartment and two interior pockets inside for maximum storage. It's also available with or without RFID technology to keep scammers from getting his credit card information.

2. Meater Plus

Best for the Grill "Master"

  • Why We Love It for Dad: Monitors internal and external temps, sends an app notification when it's ready

Even if dad says he knows when the steak has hit medium rare just by eyeballing it, he could probably still use a little help. This wireless meat thermometer has two sensors that will monitor both the internal and external temperatures of whatever it is that he’s grilling, plus, it's got a phone app that will ping him when it's just right, so he won’t overcook the bird while he's gabbing with Uncle Larry.


3. Amazon Explore

Best for the Adventurous Dad

  • Why We Love It for Dad: Multiple options, engaging

If Dad is always wrangling the fam for a vacation excursion he booked at 6 a.m., then he'll surely appreciate Amazon Explore. This program lets you book him virtual experiences from around the world, from a cooking class in Argentina to a walk-through of Game of Thrones filming locations in Spain—all from the comfort of the couch. The options are endless! Best of all? There's no shipping deadline.

4. Perfect Practice Putting Mat

Best for the Dad Who Yells ‘Fore’

  • Why We Love It for Dad: Fun pastime, portable

Help him work on his short game during breaks at the office. With a standard hole and one that's slightly smaller, he and his colleagues can challenge themselves to see who can sink the most putts into this mat like the pros—after all, this is the official golf-putting green of PGA star Dustin Johnson. It will be great practice for the course—or your next family mini golf outing.


5. Bose Soundlink Portable Speaker

Best for the Top 40 Dad

  • Why We Love It for Dad: High-quality sound, waterproof, 12 hours of play time

Whether he tries to bop his head along to top 40 radio or constantly preaches to you about how good music used to be in the '80s, a dad likes to jam deserves to hear his playlist wherever he goes. This waterproof, Bluetooth speaker has incredible sound, according to the more than 4,5000 5-star reviewers who love it, and is built for durability, so he can use it in his garage, take it camping or listen to it on the beach—it even floats in water! He'll also get a reported 12 hours of play time, so the jams will never run out.


6. Southpole Active Joggers

Best for the Lounge-Lover

  • Why We Love It for Dad: Cozy, adjustable waist

You can never go wrong with a simple pair of sweatpants. Happy buyers say these ones have a soft, cozy interior, and there's a cinch-cord waist for custom comfort. "Listen y'all, these aren't pants. These are warm, soft clouds that just sorta hover around your lower body," wrote one reviewer. If we were the betting type, we'd venture to guess that dad will be slipping into these as soon as he gets home from work—and we don’t blame him. Big and tall sizing is also available.


7. Parigo Led Flashlight Gloves

Best for the Handyman

  • Why We Love It for Dad: Functional, easy to use

Whether he’s walking the dogs at night or trying to see what fell under the fridge, these gloves will come in handy (pun intended). There are two bright LED lights at the thumbs to cut through the dark and the glove material is stretchy enough to fit most hands. It’s one of those things he never knew he needed, but will love.


8. Solo Stove Bonfire Fire Pit

Best for the Backyard King

  • Why We Love It for Dad: Works without gas, smokeless flame

There’s nothing quite like gathering the fam around the bonfire to cap off a perfect summer day—especially if dad has a Solo Stove. This portable stainless-steel container makes it easy to ignite a flame, and the company claims that the double-walled design maximizes airflow for a better, less smoky, fire (the latter part of which we can attest to). That means pops won’t have to tend to the fire all night long (unless, you know, he wants to.)


9. Stanley French Press

Best for the Dad Who Likes His Coffee Black

  • Why We Love It for Dad: Insulated, durable

If dad's a bit of a coffee snob, a French press will be right up his alley. This one's made of stainless steel, so it's nice and tough (Stanley says it's "built for life"), and according to the company, it will keep your father's cup of joe warm for him for up to a whopping four hours. Bonus? It’s dishwasher safe.

10. Theragun Elite

Best for the Dad With Aches and Pains

  • Why We Love It for Dad: Effective, custom speed, ergonomic design

There are some aches and pains that a foam roller just can’t just reach. With five interchangeable heads and speeds that range between 1750 to 2400 PPMs, the Theragun Elite will finally have him saying “ahhh.” This thing will go to town just about anywhere, from his cripplingly sore shoulders to his cramped-up calves, and thanks to its ergonomic design, it won't be piling on additional pain in his hand.


11. Birkenstock Arizona Sandals

Best for the Socks-With-Sandals Dad

  • Why We Love It for Dad: Waterproof, arch support for feet

Convince dad that he should really embrace the slides without socks life once and for all with these waterproof Birkenstocks. After all, they're comfortable, cool and come in a bunch of colorways. They're made of synthetic materials, so they're far more affordable than their leather counterparts, but they still look—and feel—great: There's even built-in arch support.


12. Bbq Fans Monogram Branding Iron

Best for the Hardcore Griller

  • Why We Love It for Dad: Customizable, versatile usage

Dad can literally put his name on his steak with this branding iron. With his initials at the ready, all he'll need to do is warm up the iron in the coals to add his personal touch to everything from burger buns to chicken, making it a memorable addition for any grill master. If he's a hobbyist, he can also use it to customize wooden cutting boards or leather bags.


13. Rak Magnetic Wristband

Best for the Handy Man

  • Why We Love It for Dad: Useful, unique

Dad will seriously appreciate not having to get down off the ladder to grab a few nails thanks to this magnetic wristband. It has ten powerful magnets to ensure that screws, nails, bolts, washers and drill bits won’t drop off as he’s deep in a DIY project. The strap is adjustable too, so he won't be nuisanced wearing it while he works.


14. Ballast Beach Pillow

Best for the Beach Bum

  • Why We Love It for Dad: Easy to use, comfy, quick-drying

The beach is a relaxing place—until you realize your head has been resting on the hard sand for over an hour. That’s where this inflatable pillow comes in. Dad can fill it with air and put sand in the included pouch that doubles as a carrying case when it's deflated so it won't blow away. And just like that, he'll be ready for an afternoon of napping in the sun (just be sure he's wearing lots of sunscreen before he dozes off!).


15. Hydro Flask Beer Growler

For the Beer Enthusiast

  • Why We Love It for Dad: Heavy insulation, large beverage capacity

With double-walled vacuum insulation, dad's beer will stay nice and chilly for hours thanks to this growler's "fresh carry system," which features a leak-proof seal for what the company says is improved temp control—aka no more flat brews. Beyond that, his drink won't sweat through the cup (though it wouldn't matter if it did on account of its easy-carry handle). Dad can use it camping, at the beach or while walking around the house with a cold one.

16. Olukai Leather Moloa Slippers

Best for the Homebody

  • Why We Love It for Dad: Stylish, genuine leather, cozy

Dad may want to wear slippers all the time, but he doesn’t have to look like he’s wearing them. With a leather exterior, these pass for chic loafers, but are lined with a soft shearling that his frigid toes will thank you for as he strolls through Costco for the third time this week. There's a rubber outsole, so he can take out the trash in them, and the heel drops in, just in case he feels like rocking them in slide form.

17. Tushy Classic 2.0 Bidet Attachment

Best for the Dad Who Likes the Finer Things in Life

18. Off Topic Party Game

Best for the Family Game Night Champion

  • Why We Love It for Dad: Fun, family-oriented

If your father needs a new game to beat everyone in during family game night, this could be a nice one to add to the mix. The rules are simple enough: Draw a card to set the topic, then roll the die to find out what letter your responses to the topic must start with. Everyone writes down as many as they can in a set time, after which they'll have to lobby for bragging rights of "best answer." Needless to say, some serious negotiation tactics are needed—which will be right up dad's alley.

19. Braun Series 9 Pro 9419s Shaver

Best for the Beard Perfectionist

  • Why We Love It for Dad: Waterproof, time-saving, flexible head

If your father's beard situation got a little... well, hairy, during the WFH phase, it’s time to tame things a bit.

It’s waterproof, so he can use it wet or dry with whatever foams and gel he prefers, and it's equipped with a "sonic technology" that the company claims will cut dad's shaving time down by 10 percent versus other leading premium shavers, so you'll be saving him time, too.

20. Tovolo Golf Ball Ice Molds

Best for the Chill Dad

  • Why We Love It for Dad: Novelty, good size, chills drinks

These golf-themed ice balls will upgrade his drinks to birdie status. All he needs to do is fill up the mold, toss it in the freezer and voilá! He’ll have a unique ice cube. The large shape of these balls allows for slow melting, so everything from his whiskey to his seltzer will be perfectly chilled, and they'll look pretty cool when guests are over, too.


21. Fitbit Luxe Tracker

Best for the Active Dad

  • Why We Love It for Dad: Promotes health, tracks sleep

Dad doesn't have to wear a cumbersome, bulky device on his wrist to track his health. This sleek fitness tracker is slim and unobtrusive but still manages to give data on important markers, like steps walked, calories burned, heart rate and even stress level. This little beauty will also track the sheep he counts at night. Warning: Dad may start pacing around the house to meet his goals.

23. Bose Quietcomfort 45 Noise-canceling Headphones

Best for the Dad Who Needs to Focus

  • Why We Love It for Dad: Noise canceling, secure fit, good sound

Though he may love the idea of AirPods, if dad just can’t keep them from falling out of his ears—aka losing them—these over-the-ear headphones will still let him cancel out the world when he needs to with their incredible noise-canceling capabilities. There are two modes to choose from—quiet, which blocks out all other noise, and aware, which will help him be safe if he's wearing them while crossing a street or waiting for the bus. They also provide great sound, according to the buyers who love them, are quite comfortable and won’t slip off. Plus, Bose says their battery will run for a solid 24 hours.


24. Bear Paws The Original Shredder Claws

For the Pulled Pork Fanatic

  • Why We Love It for Dad: Heat resistant, non-slip grip

These “bear claws” are sharp enough to shred through chicken, pork and beef with ease, but still dull enough not to puncture any human hands in the process. Said to be way more efficient than a fork, they'll have Dad making pulled pork on the regular (bonus for you!). They're heat-resistant up to 475 degrees, too, so these claws will survive tackling a bird right out of the oven—and a round in the dishwasher.


25. Gerber Gear Multi-tool

Best for Mr. Fix-It

  • Why We Love It for Dad: 15 different tools in one, extra handy

Dad will love being able to say “I can fix that” on account of his new multitool.

  • Why We Love It for Dad: Large screen, incredible storage

Best for the Home Chef

  • Why We Love It for Dad: Precise, connects to app, easy to set

As sophisticated chefs will tell you, the French technique of sous vide, which involves vacuum-sealing food and slowly cooking it in a bath of water, creates some of the most succulent meals, but requires an immersion circulator to do so.
