Father’s Day is fast approaching. Sunday, June 16 is the big day, so if you haven’t gotten a gift for your dad yet, now is the time to act. With less than a week to go, you may feel a bit rushed, but there’s no need to panic. There are plenty of last-minute gifts your dad will love.

Whether you plan to order from Amazon with Prime shipping or head out to a store to buy something in person, here are five awesome last-minute gift ideas that are sure to put a smile on dad’s face this holiday.

1. Beard Trimmer

A Father’s Day classic, a beard trimmer is the perfect practical gadget for a dad who likes to keep his facial hair neat and groomed. For guys who are short are time, there are even models that can be used in the shower, making for a more efficient morning routine.


2. Laser Tag Set

For the dad who’s a big kid at heart, consider a laser tag set. A gift like this is pretty much two gifts in one. Not only are you gifting your dad a cool, new toy, but you’re also gifting him some quality time with you and the rest of the fam. And a game like laser tag will lead to hours of fun for the whole family. With a home set, you can play whenever you feel like it, eliminating the need to schlep to a laser tag center.


3. Cooler

For beach days, camping and BBQs, a good cooler is a summertime essential. Whether you want a soft-sided cooler with a carrying strap for ease of transport or an extra-large-capacity cooler for big parties, there’s a cooler out there for every type of use. So, yes. Give Dad the gift of ice-cold beverages for when he’s hanging with his friends.


4. Bluetooth Speaker

Replace your dad’s old-school stereo system with a Bluetooth speaker. Set him up with a Spotify or Pandora account. You can even make him a personalized playlist to get him started. A speaker like this can be perfect for rocking out at parties or for listening to tunes while working around the house. And it’s easily portable, too. Your dad’s sure to thank you for bringing his music habit into the 21st century.
