Father's Day is this Sunday, June 21st. That's right, this Sunday. It crept up on me, too. So you've got less than a week to get your Dad a gift. Or in some cases, you are reading this because it is already Father's Day and you need a gift NOW. You cannot wait on shipping, heck, you don't even have time to run to the local pharmacy to rummage through the leftover Father's Day cards.
But don't worry, EtsyNY has got you covered! Below we list our top five last minute gift's for Father's Day.
1. Wall Art
Dream Weaver Prints is a New York based store that offers many beautiful prints and wall art designs. You can download this Father's Day print INSTANTLY for your Dad. It's sentimental and printable. For a last minute gift, you're going to look like a pretty thoughtful child or spouse for that matter.
2. Art from a Mom/Dad and Child
If your child is too young to get on the ball and get Dad a gift for Father's Day (if they could drive themselves to the store, buy a gift and wrap it, I'm sure they would, but until then it's up to you Mama or Papa!), this is the perfect Father's Day gift from the two of you. Raising Cains Digital Prints has created a sweet wall art piece with two hand prints, so this gift can be from both of you (even though you did all the printing:)). This piece is also available for download immediately.
3. Spending Time with Dad
Okay, this one may seem a little cliche, but it's true. Your Dad wants nothing more than to spend time with you on Father's Day. So if golf is his thing, why not act as his caddy as he gets a few rounds in? And if your Dad is a weekend handyman warrior, why not head with him to Home Depot? Okay, not the most glamorous spot to spend time with Dad, but if he wants to head out to get new caulking for his latest DIY project, you can handle the Depot for an hour. Or if your Dad is not exactly big on talking, pick out a quiet spot in nature and just take in the view.
4. Family Tree Art
If you want to document the year in your gift, Beautiful Print allows you to do just that with its Father's Day Poster. Not only is this art downloadable, it is also customizable. You can pick which colors you want for the hands as pictured in the example below.
5. Listen to Music
When I saw this printable poster, I knew I had to include it. Everyone's Dad thinks he has the best, coolest taste in music. So this is a combo last minute gift idea. First, print this awesome poster out from Alexis Harris Design. Second, make a playlist of your Dad's favorite songs (you know like Bruce, Eric Clapton, Fleetwood Mac, and Creedence Clearwater Revival ... okay, okay, those are my Dad's favorites, but if you do end up making that tape, I'd love a copy!). Third, listen to your Dad's music with him.
No matter what you end up getting your Dad for Father's Day, just showing up or calling and giving him your full-undivided attention is the best gift you could give. So if that's the only gift you got, it's still the best gift going.
Happy Father's Day!!
