Don’t forget about your father!
If you’ve been in a daze since Memorial Day Weekend (or heck, even before that) and have misplaced your calendar, Father’s Day 2023 takes place on June 18 this year.
Because of the weekend timing, you may need to hop to it, as FedEx and other mailing services are known to be slower or not partake in Sunday deliveries.
That being said, not all hope it lost. In fact, we have some great ideas for you ranging from the simple-but-mighty gift card, Amazon finds with one or two-day shipping and even some delicious treats that can be ordered in a snap.
Be it your father, grandfather, father-figure or even a new father-to-be, these gifts are sure to please and even better, arrive on time, should you order at least a day or two in advance. Be sure to note delivery times on each product to ensure a happy dad come the big day.
This gift is anything but cheesy. For a last minute gift that looks (and tastes) super planned out, get dad a gourmet charcuterie board for his Father’s Day lunch or brunch spread. This is also an Oprah’s Favorite Thing, and soon to be a Dad’s Favorite Thing, too. They offer next-day delivery, so be sure to order by June 16 to ensure it arrives on time.
Your dad is a tough guy and he needs darn tough socks to match. The ABC Boot sock was chosen as a must-have gift for dad by the staff (and children) of Darn Tough Vermont, perfect for the working dad, the hiking dad and the dad who hates thin socks. Orders typically ship out within two to three business days and you can also opt for expedited shipping at checkout.
