June means school’s out, pool time—and hustling to find last-minute Father’s Day gift ideas. If you think you’ve run out of time, think again—good old trusty Amazon Prime can make the dad in your life happy, and he’ll never have to know that you ordered it with only two to three days shipping. (We won’t tell if he’s used the same trick for those first Mother's Day gifts.)

That’s right—the same way you can get all those items crossed off your newborn checklist is the same way you’ll be able to win Father’s Day. Here are some last-minute Father’s Day gift ideas for every kind of dad.

When is Father's Day 2024?

Father’s Day is one of the kickoffs of summer, usually occurring midway through June. In 2023, it falls on Sunday, June 16th in the United States and Canada. That's because it is always celebrated on the third Sunday in June of each year. Now you know when this federal holiday is, so don't let it slip your mind.

We think it is the perfect day to do whatever dad wants, whether that be brunch at the newest spot in town, a family hike, backyard grilling or just a day of hanging out.
