Last-minute Father’s Day gifts for the dads who have everything

Don’t give your dad something he’s going to toss into storage. Instead, make Father’s Day awesome with a gift he’ll genuinely love. Here are some last-minute ideas for dads who are difficult to buy for.

With just a couple of days left until Father’s Day, the pressure to have a present wrapped and ready to gift is dawning. Are you stuck this year? Do you feel as though your dad already owns everything he could possibly want? Here’s a guide to help you pick a Father’s Day present that he’ll appreciate and enjoy.

If he likes adventure…

If your dad is one to travel or hike regularly, he’ll love a drone. It’ll let him capture amazing, quality shots from breathtaking angles and heights. Even in a domestic setting, drones are fun to fly and race!

Does he already own a drone? No problem! Why not add to his experience with other drone accessories such as goggles, a remote controller or an intelligent flight battery (be sure to check that they’re suitable for the model of his drone!).

If he loves music…

If your dad has a liking to iTunes or Spotify, a good pick is a portable speaker. He’ll be able to play his favourite playlist while riding his bike, fixing things in the workshop, while cooking in the kitchen and pretty much anywhere he goes! Opt for a waterproof speaker so that he can take it to the beach during summer too.

If he’s usually in the driver’s seat…

Is your dad always on the road? A GPS system is a helpful gift that he’ll actually use. Many models have Bluetooth and Wifi features as well as voice control and traffic updates. He’ll never have to ask for directions again!

If he’s a workaholic…

If the office is where dad spends most of his time, make his work easier with a new laptop, tablet or 2-in-1. Or you can even set up a whole new home office with this simple guide on everything you need!

After something little smaller? Make sure his hard work never goes to waste with a backup hard drive or a portable SSD card.

If he’s health-conscious…

Encourage him to keep track of his health every day with a Fitbit. It will inspire him to reach and maintain his fitness goals with features such as auto exercise recognition, reminders and smartphone notifications. Fitbits are also waterproof, so you know they’re durable and resistant.

If he’s a bookworm…

Does your dad’s book collection never stop growing? He’ll have so much space-saving convenience when you gift him a Kindle. Unlike a tablet or smartphone, they eliminate annoying glare and reflections.

They’re lightweight and compact, so he’ll be able to carry it around while travelling and also on a day-to-day basis. A Kindle will let him enjoy his favourite novels comfortably with the quality of a gadget and the familiarity of a paperback.

If he’s simple…

This is quite broad, but if you really can’t put a thumb on what your dad’s hobbies are, it’s best that you give him a gift that is simply functional. All round winners are hair clippers, bread trimmers, smart electric toothbrushes and air purifiers.
