Father’s Day is Sunday, but don’t panic.

You can set him up with a year of unique meals (make sure to order enough in case you drop by for dinner), set him up with shaving gear delivered directly to his door, or even get him some screenwriting lessons with Aaron Sorkin. Check out the list below for gift ideas you can buy in the next 10 minutes. If you’re feeling generous, though, we also have a roundup of luxury tech gifts that are sure to please, as well as some just as fab finds under £100.

  • Blue Apron Food Delivery

    Putting It All On the Table

    The dad you’re shopping for might like to cook or he might not.

    Either way, he’ll probably appreciate Blue Apron since it takes out the most frustrating parts about preparing a meal (choosing a recipe, shopping for just the right amount of ingredients) and will save him from ordering in. You can gift a subscription or send a gift card via email or print it out so that he can choose which plan suits him best.


  • Story Time

    Finding time to read can be hard for him but he always has time to listen to you. Give him an Audible gift subscription so he can also listen to the books he never gets to (and podcasts).

    He can listen on his phone, tablet, Kindle, or Amazon Echo.


  • Fuel for Thought

    If coffee is a must first thing in the morning for him, make sure he’s never running low. Get him a Blue Bottle subscription and choose from blends, a single-origin assortment, or espresso.


  • Speedy Delivery


  • DIY

    If you have a DIY dad and you’re less than handy, you can still make him a gift. Etsy has a printable gift section where you can print out frameable art (grab a frame at a nearby drugstore), custom wine labels, and even gift certificates for Etsy shops.


  • A Close Shave

    Shopping for shaving supplies is an unnecessary use of valuable time.

    Save him from it with a membership to Harry’s. He can get blades and shave gel delivered on the regular.

  • Life Lessons

    He might have taught you a lot of things in life, but that doesn’t mean he knows as much as say, Stephen Curry about basketball. Get him a MasterClass subscription and he can take a class about space exploration from Chris Hadfield, get photography instruction from Annie Leibovitz, and learn the ins and outs of directing from Ron Howard.

    The instructors are stellar and there’s a community of fellow online learners to communicate with.


  • Home Run

    Step up to the plate and get him what he really wants: an MLB At Bat subscription. He’ll get access to the MLB.TV game of the day, every out-of-market game, in-game highlights, and lots of other features.


  • Dad Rock

    One of the best gifts you can get the musically inclined dad in your life is a premium subscription to Spotify. He can listen to old favorites and discover new music.

    And be sure to send him a link to our top Spotify tips so he gets the most out of your gift.


  • Personally Invested

    You can’t buy him Google but you can get him a piece of it (or Apple or Amazon or Alibaba or any other public company he wants in on). Stockpile is a way to buy fractional (read: affordable) shares of over 1,000 companies. Get him a gift card for one you choose or a set amount where he can select what he wants to put his money on.


  • Well Read

    A tablet is the perfect way to read a stack of magazines without clutter. Get him Texture so he can have access to tons of titles (well, more than 200), including Vanity Fair, Entrepreneur, and more.

    It’s £9.99 per month. If you don’t want to overwhelm, pick something for him like GQ, The New Yorker, or PCMag’s digital edition.


  • Card Tricks

    Finding a card that speaks to you can mean a long time in the card store. Finding a card that speaks means you just have to go to JibJab.

    There are plenty of funny ecards to choose from and personalize.

    Some sing, some dance, some put him in a Kung Fu film.
