Father’s Day is next week, people! If it’s snuck up on you like it has many of us, today I’m sharing some things that you can buy today or tomorrow and still have in your mailbox before Sunday.
I find that dads can be hard to shop for, even my own dear husband, because they’ve reached an age where they have almost everything that they need and they can often be a little particular with their “wants.” My husband loves golf, for example, but I wouldn’t dream of buying him a new driver or putter because those are very individual gifts. Gift cards are a safe fallback in situations like that, in my opinion!
Nevertheless, let’s wade into uncharted territory and pick a few perennial Dad favorites:
YETI products do actually live up to their hype, so if you have a sportsman or outdoorsman who doesn’t have one of their coolers yet, consider this as a splurge purchase. Buy online HERE by Monday and it arrives by Saturday (with free shipping), or they give it to you for free! Or buy it online and pick it up in store if you have one nearby. Their coolers are $199 and up with free shipping and bonus Dick’s cash) or you can snag a more reasonably priced tumbler ($29.99 and up) HERE or HERE.
If you’d rather stick with the iconic Father’s Day gift–the tie– then Vineyard Vines bowties (and regular ties) are always my favorites because they are available in dozens of colorful patterns and themes. Spend $250 or more and your order ships free with 2-day air (use code FD19); and they’re offering 20% off for new email subscribers (enter your email in the box at the top left of their homepage HERE).

Of course, Amazon is always on our list for last minute gifts because of their fast shipping, but be sure to check expected shipping and arrival dates since Prime no longer means guaranteed 2-day delivery.
My husband uses The Art of Shaving products and enjoys them; give them a try with The Art of Shaving travel kit (he likes the Sandalwood scent).
For guys who love to grill or camp, we always recommend a HomeRight ElectroTorch Fire Starter (see Amy’s post about this useful tool HERE).
Quality leather products like shaving kits and wallets are almost always a hit and my husband really likes this slim profile wallet (bonus: it has built in RFID protection).
It’s a little too late to order monogrammed cufflinks for this Father’s Day (also a favorite gift idea of mine), but these initial ones can make it in time!
Last but not least, if you have a history buff in the house, “The Pioneers” is well worth the read. Dad can enjoy a day in the hammock with an iced tea and a good book (that sounds like a perfect day to me!).

Happy (early) Father’s Day to all the dads out there; I hope you’re spoiled rotten on your special day!
