Father’s Day is coming soon, babes. If you are just now realizing that you forgot something for your man, listen up. We have worked crazy long hours. Spent copious amounts of time on Netflix. All to find the most meaningful and unique gift ideas for Father’s Day. It is our gift to you. Because, we know how much he loves. We all know how much you love. So, for everyone’s sake, our hope from all of this panic last minute gift inspiration is that you walk away with at least one of the most unique and coolest Father’s Day gift ideas. We all deserve it. If that is just too much, throw caution to the wind and try to get your children to decorate some sort of sentimental homemade card to give him. For a DIY version, add a late night in front of The Office, one of those gigantic bottles of wine, a sharpie, a piece of construction paper, and you. It’ll be amazing. I mean, who would guess, right? For something more authentic, be sure to spill some soup on it and rip it a few times. No one will know

The dad shirt.

Up first is the dad t-shirt. Totally ridiculous. Still kind of funny. Definitely not something you want him to wear. But, he will get a kick out of it, and that is all that matters. Pair it with a ticket or two to a comedy club and voilà. A perfête Father’s Day is served.

The gift of education.

Our next gift idea for Father’s Day is a knife sharpener and honing steel. They are not the same, yet so many think they are. Maybe even the father of your children? It will surprise everyone there when you explain the difference. Combine it with a Traeger Pop Up cooking class at Williams Sonoma or Let’s Make Croissants experience at Sur la Table for the perfect gift. Because sharp knives and pastries go together. They kind of don’t, but the class was too cool not to pass on. As recourse, check out some of our other favorite kitchen gadgets and utensils that would make a sharp gift for dad.  #onlyhereforthepuns

This one should come as no surprise.

Combine Ray-Ban sunglasses or another item from our favorite travel accessories for men with a luxury car rental of his dreams. Ok, so this one does require a little planning, but when you pull it off, you will have one happy man. As a bonus, grab him that sleek Movado watch or a nice pair of leather gloves he has been eyeing up for weeks.

The one thing that he says he wants to do.

What about gifting the one thing that he says he wants to do but never does? If he has always talked about registering for a 5K or constantly googles “How to Train for a Marathon,” girl. You know what to do. Especially if the 26.2 is a year away. He will have a deadline in his hands and your support. There is not anything better than that. On that thought, what about that game that he mentions every time his favorite sports season rolls around? The one thing that he talks about doing more of next year, yet somehow never does. Tickets to a sports game for the family? Do it. Or, if it is more of a friends-type event, (simultaneous bonus ladies night out!) buy some for him and a few buddies. Pitch these etched marathon glasses into the mix for one of our favorite meaningful gift ideas.
