The 25 best last-minute Father’s Day gift ideas for Dad in 2024

Dad doesn’t want you to make a big song and dance about Father’s Day 2024. Seriously, he’s happy as long as he’s got a lawn to mow, a TV to watch and some snacks on standby. Even so, you should go the extra mile and give him a thoughtful present that sums up what he means to you. Time is of the essence, so shop straight from this list of last-minute Father’s Day gifts with super-fast shipping.

You might’ve missed the mark on personalized presents, but rest assured, the following Father’s Day gift ideas are just as unique. A lot of these picks skew more practical than personal, but that’s only because Dad wouldn’t want you spending your hard-earned money on something he wouldn’t really use. There’s smarter-than-Dad (kidding) tech like a smart bird feeder and robotic pool cleaner, along with small-but-mighty gadgets that he can put to use when grilling, traveling or cleaning the car. But if you really want to give Dad a gift that keeps giving, consider signing him up for a monthly subscription to MasterClass, Storyworth or Foot Cardigan (if he loves funky socks as much as the next guy).

With picks ranging in price (as low as $7), shipping times and sentiment, you’re sure to find something special for the man you love — whether he’s your own dad, the husband you turned into a father or the grandpa who spoiled you endlessly.

Finding a way to relieve Dad’s aches and pains? Now, you might just become his favorite.

How’s his grill brush looking? If he’s using a wire one, it’s time to swap it for something safer (FYI, loose bristles can get lodged in food) like this firefighter-backed steamer.
