Look, we have all forgotten about a holiday at least once in our lives, but don't let Father's Day be one of them. If the means are available, these are some extremely solid last-minute gifts that ship with Amazon Prime, which is significantly better than letting Dad know the day was forgotten. Some of these are on the pricier side (What can we say? Last-minute can cost!) but several wonderful options exist for less than $20. The items on the pricier side, however, if buying them is an option, are honestly the sort of thing he's going to absolutely adore. These are solid, dad-tested, dad-approved options for every type of father -- from aspiring bocce players to the guy who just wants a really, really solid nap.

Also, check out these 20 Creative Ways to Celebrate Father's Day This Year. Although a few of them take some advance planning, several of these could be discovered and announced the morning itself, and they sound so thoughtful it's basically like having been really good and thought through the project for weeks and weeks (even if that isn't the case). If there happens to be time left, some other thoughtful options exist for giving dad a gift he'll love this Father's Day, too. We're not saying that dad is ungrateful when he receives another necktie -- it's the thought that counts, right? -- but we are saying there are some inexpensive options he'll absolutely adore. Check out 20 Under-$25 Father's Day Presents That Aren't a Tie, which is packed full of gifts for most budgets. And if it's time to get the kids involved, head over to 10 Fabulous Father's Day Gifts Kids Can Make Themselves​. He'll love them even more because they were made for him!
