19 Last-Minute Father’s Day Gift Ideas That Your Dad Will Love.

Father's Day is practically kicking down your door, and you probably have no clue what you want to buy for him. It's okay. You're not alone. Buying gifts for dads can be a tough challenge. You could buy him a tie or checked suspenders, but you got him that last year and the year before that, didn't you?

You have to do something new for him or your heart will break when you see his smile turn into a frown when he opens his gift. So, here are a couple of perfect store-bought and DIY ideas that make great last-minute gifts.

#1. Go a little nutty with this DIY basket that lets dad know you're nuts about him because he's awesome!

If your dad loves nutty things, then get him a basket with jars full of nuts, peanut butter, M&M peanuts, and maybe a few Reese's peanut butter cups here and there, so that he won't have to worry about scavenging for a snack... at least, not right away.

#2. Does your dad have a bunch of scratched up vinyl records lying around that he can't listen to?

You can repurpose them into something he can use, like a vinyl record bowl where he can put his keys or other trinkets in. You just need a real bowl that can go in the oven, a vinyl record, and an over on 350 degrees. Once you see the record warping, take it out and push it into the bowl to shape it.

#3. Give your handy man dad a toolbox full of the most essential items he'll need to get through the day.

You can go online and make your own label for your dad's toolbox. Then, find a manly wrapping paper to wrap around this basket and add some much-needed snacks like beer, some Pringles, some Kit Kats, and anything else he might like.

#4. He'll flip when you get him this DIY basket that's perfect for any dad who loves to grill on the weekends.

Put everything he'll need inside a (manly man) tin bucket full of tongs, and spatulas. Then add some jars with the condiments he'll need to season the food he's putting on the grill. Oh, and don't forget the barbecue sauce and a brush to coat the burgers, the steaks, and the chicken with.

#5. A leather drink sleeve made of heavy duty leather is perfect for any dad who has that outdoorsy spirit.

Yes! Yes! You can buy him one of those "World's Best Dad" mugs, but he has a collection of those in his garage outback, which he's using to store all of his loose nails. This leather drink sleeve is tough as nails, and a totally banging gift because it'll keep his hands from burning when he's drinking his coffee or tea.
