With Father’s Day only a few weeks away (as a reminder, this year it’s Sunday, June 21) and some shipping times still affected by the coronavirus, the definition of last-minute is even earlier than usual this year. But there’s still just enough time to sneak in some great last-minute Father’s Day gifts. Maybe your dad needs something to help him get back in shape after months of isolating at home. Maybe his T-shirts, towels, or dopp kit could use an upgrade. Or maybe what he really needs is a way to host socially distant movie nights in his backyard. To help you find the right gift for your dad (and quickly), we found the best last-minute Father’s Day gifts for all kinds of dads — all of which will get to him in time for the big day.
