Chances are solid that if you ask the dad in your life what he wants for Father’s Day, he’ll say that he already has everything he needs. It’s hard enough to find, among all the things that he doesn’t need, something that he’d really like — and doubly difficult if you’ve waited until the week before to nail something down. Triply so in the year of coronavirus, when shipping delays abound.
It’s OK. We’ve found some excellent last-minute Father’s Day gifts for the audiophile, the grillmaster, the outdoorsman, and everyone in between. All of the gifts below can be ordered with expedited shipping, or via Amazon Prime. but read the fine print when you order, to make sure your gift arrives in time.
One of the coolest things to come across our desk is this handy aluminum tube, ideal for the outdoorsman. One side is a compass, the other a flashlight. And in the interior houses everything he needs: First aid gear, matches, tape, and even a can opener.
With many gyms closed, it makes sense to work out at home. And with MYX, he gets a stationary bike as well as dumbbells and kettlebells, plus a membership that includes access to an extensive workout library via the home studio tablet. He has access to hundreds of total-body workouts. Shipping times vary, but you do the package via contactless delivery.
Speaking of workouts, here's a fantastic set of resistance bands so he can work out specific body parts at home. This compact set, from alternative medicine practitioner Alex Guerrero and football superstar Tom Brady's brand, lets him work on functional strength and conditioning when he's not doing yard work.
The carnivore will rejoice when he opens this gift: It's a glorious array of two New York strip steaks, two skirt steaks, and two filet mignons. The steaks are shipped fresh, not frozen, and they're wet-aged for 21-plus days for extra flavor and succulent texture. You pay extra for expedited shipping.
A collapsible and fully portable grill, this one has a cast iron body that doubles as cooking surface and grill base; he can either cook steak or chicken or veggies over an open fire, or use coals, as with a traditional grill. The site offers free shipping, and gets your order out in one to four days.
