Last Minute Father's Day Gift Ideas


Father's Day is almost here.  It's coming quick, Sunday, the 17th of June.  With Father's Day coming up this weekend, it's time to seriously consider some gifts for Dad.  Here are a few last minute gift ideas.
  • American Express gift card to let Dad do his own shopping for a new iPhone or anything else he wants. Amex gift cards have no fees, so you get the full card amount to spend (so Dad can get what he really wants)
  • Tickets to Sporting Events (LA Lakers comes to mind) or concerts (Check TicketLiquidator.com for deals)
  • If your Dad or Husband likes to play Grill man, look for grill deals everywhere from Big Lots to Sears.
  • Dinner out at the restaurant of his choice (check Restaurants.com for deals or buy a gift card at Costco for restaurants like Flemings.)
  • Look for tech gadgets  like iPod/iPhone accessories at TJ Maxx/Marshalls. They are always near the check out line/cash register.
