last minute father's day gifts

As Father's Day approaches, I'm reminded how some of us go through life with an internal calendar, our body calmly alerting us to the various holidays and dates divvied up throughout the year with enough time before they happen. I'd like to be one of these people. But for the rest of us 'chaotic' would be a much more accurate description of our own approach. There are times when no amount of planning or writing dates down can help – well at least that's what it feels like. What, with the many demands of work and daily life, even the most dedicated offspring can find themselves unravelling come the first week of September. Enter: last minute Father's Day gifts.

And so for those of you, where, up until this very moment, Father's Day had slipped your mind, we're here to show some support. Since it's no longer acceptable to hand over a macaroni-necklace and call it a day, we've explored many avenues for the right, if not perfect, gift. While the time for grand or bespoke gesture has run out, there are still many ways to show your father figure they're appreciated. Your best friend during these times, are often those closest in proximity to you. Your local restaurant, your neighbourhood bookstore – there truly is something for every Dad at hand. And for all the gifts that can only be retrieved online, we've made sure to include ones with expedited shipping, pick-up options or e-vouchers. If nothing else, there's always a pair of socks.
