Birthday Party Pack
When it comes to gift shopping, I can dish out plenty of advice on picking out the right presents for every kind of recipient, but I'm definitely guilty of not following my own words of wisdom regarding planning ahead! If you're like me and often find yourself smacking your forehead in frustration upon realizing that you are yet again empty-handed just days before Father's Day, you will be relieved to know that not all hope is lost. While scoring that just-released gadget your dad has been eyeing or shipping in a thoughtful personalized present may be out of the question if you're looking to be prompt with your gift-giving, you might just be able to save yourself from being deemed your dad's least favorite or "the heartless forgetful one" by making a quick trip to your local Target or Walmart. From Father's Day themed candy gift boxes to men's accessory essentials like wallets and watches, these gifts may be impromptu and kind of corny, but at least you didn't put in zero effort. Check the slideshow for more last-minute Father's Day gifts, perfect for a guy who doesn't shop enough to know the difference!

Father's Day may be on June 21, but it's never too early to starting thinking about what to give him. Is he the kind of dad whose favorite room in the house is the kitchen? Does he like to try out new recipes or know exactly which wine to pair with each dish? Then forget the tie tacks or golf clubs, your foodie father would love something that would appeal to his gourmet taste. If he already has his dream grill and you can't pry him out of the deck on nice days, then consider getting him a monogram steak brand and carving board that will have him feeling even prouder about his grilling abilities. And if he likes to kick back and enjoy a nice cold beer, maybe he should consider making his own beer with a homebrew kit. Check out my slideshow for more gift ideas for dads who like to enjoy the finer things in life.
