Last-Minute Gift for Dad

Last-minute gifts for dad because I can’t remember everything! I love my husband but he’s the worst to shop for. It’s made me think of some fun and unique gifts for him though, so I thought I’d share with you some fun Dad gifts!

I’ve been with my husband now for 5 years and between his mother and I we can never really find a ‘good’ gift for him, ever. Every occasion it’s always like great I have to get something for him! Meanwhile he’s the best gift giver I ever met, ugh!

I always start with what’s unique in the ‘Dad’ gift category.

This year I got him a keychain with the central one saying “Dada” and two pennies attached with the names of our kids and the corresponding years of their births. The first year I got him a T-shirt that matched our sons. Other things I’ve thought about though are…

  • Beard stuff (he’s not like super into his beard so I wasn’t sure).
  • Donation type stuff. He’s a big animal person so something that the money spent would go to different foundations for the animal.
  • Posters from his favorite music, movies, etc.
  • Trips, tickets, events for a get away or vacation.

Some of the best gifts I have gotten him.

  • Bluetooth Speaker.
  • Smart Watch!
  • Phone.
  • Anything personalized with our kids names.

Not great last minute dad gifts but god ones include…

  • Things really personalized.
  • Pocket watch
  • Regular watch.
  • Knife sets.
  • Grill sets.
  • Jewelry.

Things that he would love but include more.

  • Camping equipment.
  • Fishing equipment.
  • Hunting equipment.
  • Sporting equipment.

Cheap and easy to do, most of which you can find at the dollar store.

  • Handmade Christmas ornaments, using flour and baking it is one I’ve seen done but haven’t personally used yet.
  • Footprints on canvas.
  • Pictures, I do a lot of pictures.
  • Something symbolic of something you shared, frame a movie ticket stub.
  • Collage of pictures or shared things. My husband and I traveled across the country and visited tons of National Parks and I saved something from each one. Usually pamphlets or other papers. My plan is to one day create either a photo album or collage with those materials.
  • Anything you can make by hand. I can *almost* knit something worthwhile and I’d still love to finish a blanket I started crocheting for our son.

Make his favorite meals. Breakfast is always my husbands favorite meal so I always make eggs when it’s something special. Even though he makes them better.

What has he wanted forever? My husbands been wanting a tattoo for a long time and you can get gift cards for many places. Or just make an appointment and surprise him.
