Raise your hand if you haven't bought a Father's Day gift for you dad yet and you have less than a week to find one. Are you raising your hand? I definitely am. Father's Day is one of those holidays that always seems to sneak up on me. I think it's because I'm so busy with end of school things that my mind is in a haze until the third week of June. So here I am now, trying to decide what to get my dad for Father's Day. If you are in the same boat as me, here are some gift ideas that I've come up with that can all be purchased last minute from my favorite website Amazon!

I have a hard time deciding on gifts for my dad. He's not a very materialistic person, and he is also mister fix-it. That means he doesn't need the go-to tie or new collared shirt. He doesn't read books, isn't very techy, and he seems to have every tool under the sun for his garage. What do I get the guy who doesn't really want anything? And what do I get that is under $50? Well here are the options I came up with:
Summertime means cabin trips and weekend getaways. Weekend bags are the perfect size for a weekend trip, and if your dad is anything like mine, probably a great size for up to a week's worth of clothes. This is an unexpected gift that is thoughtful yet functional. You could even get it monogrammed to make it more personal!
Wallets are a pretty standard Father's Day gift, but what dad doesn't need a new wallet? I got my dad a new wallet a few years ago and he is still using it today. This wallet comes in a lot of color options and includes a RFID blocking layer to prevent credit cards from being scanned.
Okay, you might be thinking I'm crazy now. Crocs?! They are so ugly, right? Well, don't knock them until you try them. I do not personally own Crocs, but most of my family members do and they love them - including my dad. These shoes are perfect for summer, especially if your dad spends a lot of time near water. My dad doesn't like wearing sandals, so these are a great alternative. They also come in so many colors!
Swiss Army Knife
Swiss Army Knives are the perfect gifts for Mr. Fix-Its, especially if they spend a lot of time outdoors doing things like camping. They can carry it in their pocket or leave it in their car and it will always be useful. Plus, they range in price so you can find one to fit in your budget!
OtterBox Phone Case
If your dad spends a lot of time in the garage or outside, he needs a durable phone case. I know my dad's phone is covered in sawdust 80% of the time. OtterBox cases are perfect for dads, especially when they don't care too much about how it looks but want it to be protective. I'd be really impressed if your dad broke his phone while using this case!
I hope this gift guide gave you some ideas! You can click on any of these links to bring you right to Amazon. These are all Prime eligible products, too, so you can even wait until two days before Father's Day and still get them shipped on time (although I wouldn't recommend that)! Now I'm hopping onto Amazon to purchase my gift for my dad...
