Crap! Father's Day is this Sunday and you still haven't gotten anything for your old man. Thankfully, there's still time to snap up a last-minute gift that he will actually love. Most of these suggestions can be purchased from local brick-and-mortar retailers. (We've also included online links if your dad doesn't mind waiting!)


My dad does not like gifts. Every Father's Day I tell him I got him the same thing: the knowledge of knowing that I didn't spend any money on something he doesn't need. His response: "It's what I've always wanted."


I was nervous on the day of my year 10 formal. It was important that I looked perfect. Unlike most other fifteen year olds, my jitters extended beyond the desire for peer acceptance and getting kissed by a cute boy. I was meeting my father for the first time, and I desperately needed it to go well. I wanted him to take one look at me and immediately regret his lifelong absence.


So you still haven't picked out a Father's Day gift for your old man, eh? Join the club. Instead of grabbing a "World's Greatest Dad" mug or an obligatory slab of beer down the supermarket, show him you care with one of these life-hacking pressies. Categories range from virtual reality to "smart" cooking with prices starting at just $29.


Father's Day is rapidly approaching -- which means you're going to have to fork out for a pressie of some sort. If your progenitor is a rugged outdoorsman, or just partial to a bit of "glamping", these gift ideas will help to put a smile on his grizzled dial. To make life easy, we've also included links to where you can buy the products online. So get shopping! Your old man deserves it.
