The number of shopping days until Father’s Day—which falls on Sunday, June 21 this year—are quickly disappearing. Despite your best intentions to find the perfect gift in advance, it’s often difficult to find a gift that suits the style and personality of the man whose influence helped you become the person you are today. Check out these fast, foolproof gift ideas.
Darth Vader and Son
Skip the overpriced card that plays music and give Dad this sentimental-yet-uproarious book instead. Get Darth Vader and Son in just two days with your Amazon Prime membership, or pick up a copy from your local bookstore if you need it even faster. Grab a pair of movie tickets and a concession gift card for your pop to enjoy now, and take him to see the new Star Wars flick when it comes out in December.
Any outdoor enthusiast knows that it’s challenging to keep food and drinks cold on extended hunting, fishing or camping trips. Make life a little easier for your dad with a new Yeti Cooler. Available in a number of different colors and styles—some even boast the logo of his favorite team—these coolers are built to last and keep things colder, longer. The ardent angler won’t have to worry about his catches getting too ripe and the campfire connoisseur will appreciate having a cold, canned beverage to kick back with, even on extended trips.
A Bottle of Bourbon
Let’s face it: there were probably many occasions over the years when your dad drank because of your bad behavior. This year, give him a reason to drink in celebration. Russell’s Reserve Single Barrel has a spicy-yet-serious flavor moderated with warm notes of toffee flavor. If your father prefers something with a bit more kick, try Booker’s Bourbon instead. To make the gift even more personal, head to Things Remembered in your local mall and get a bourbon glass engraved with a special toast to your dad in just a couple of hours.
