Last minute Father’s Day ideas

father's day gift ideas

Guess what? Father’s Day is this Sunday. I remembered just the other day. If you are anything like me, you might be running around crazy wondering what to get him for Father’s Day.

So just in case you are one of those last minute people like me, don’t worry, I have your day planned. And not just your day, I have last minute gift ideas too.

So lets get underway…

Plan’s for the day:

♥ Picnic in the park

♥ Brunch at his favourite cafe

♥ Family day in the backyard with good food, good wine, good company and just good old fun.

Chocolate cupcakes with special little “world’s best dad” toppers


♥ Breakfast in bed for dad with glorious pancakes

Gift ideas:

Beer tasting experience

♥ Kindle or an ebook – what book is on his list?

♥ A father’s day interview – ask each child a few questions about dad. “What is the best thing about dad?”, “What do you love most about dad?”, “What does daddy do for work?” … and then laminate the answers or write them in a little book. Each year, add to this little interview series

Secret message in a jar


A note for daddy


♥ Father’s day lolli jar – maybe dad can guess the number of lollies inside….

    We won’t be with my husband for Father’s Day as hes working and we are going away – which will be pretty sad – we will probably head to the shops instead. Today we are making a photo frame for him with shells, buttons and some beads :) sometimes it’s the simple things :)

    Great ideas! The Man just bought himself a very expensive set of golf clubs so I’ve told him that’s Father’s Day done for him!

    No idea yet! I was trying to organise for him to go Mountain Biking but so far that’s not working out. Luckily the kids all get to buy something from the school’s Father’s Day stall, so at least he gets something!

    Those are lovely ideas!! I especially like the interview and lolly jar. I made a mug with photos of the kids on it, but Big W don’t have it ready yet. Yikes. Time is running out!

  • The Plumbette

    Thank you for these great ideas! :)

  • Emily @ Have a laugh on me

    I’m totally stealing the jolly jar idea – perfect! And that message in jar is awesome. Not sure what we’ll do – he’ll get a sleep in, breakfast in bed and LOTS of cuddles xx

    We are having BBQ lunch with my Dad. It’s the first day of Spring and supposed to be a beautiful day here, 23! I’m looking forward to it. Still not sure about the presents though, still thinking!
