Father’s Day 2015 falls on June 21. If you’ve missed the opportunity to order a gift online, and you don’t have time to hit the local mall, you can still order a last-minute gift that can be delivered instantly via email. Our gift guide is the ultimate resource for last-minute shoppers. Every item on our list is a gift that can be delivered digitally via email, so there’s no need to wait for the item to get shipped. Even if you only have a few minutes before you have to leave and see your dad, you can still order him a thoughtful gift. Here are five great last-minute gift ideas for Father’s Day 2015.
1. Amazon Prime Gift Membership
The best gifts are the ones that let you give something to a loved one, while also giving back to a charity. When you give dad a gift membership to Amazon Prime, Amazon will donate $10 to Movember, a global charity raising funds and awareness for men’s health. This promo runs through June 21. The gift recipient can start their Prime membership right away. If the recipient is already a Prime member, the gift can be exchanged for an Amazon.com Gift Card. A Prime gift membership costs $99, and your dad can use his membership to get free two-day shipping, watch movies and TV on Prime Instant Video, listen to music ad-free, get unlimited photo storage in Amazon Cloud Drive, and read free books through the Kindle lending library program.
You can also sign up for a free trial of Amazon Prime before shelling out for the full year. This may be a good gift option for your dad if you’re just not sure how much he’ll get out of Prime.
2. Gaming Gift Codes
Is your dad a gamer? Then he might appreciate a digital gift code he can use towards a new game. Whether he’s an Xbox fan or a PS4 owner, he’ll definitely appreciate a game code. Gift card amounts vary based on what kind of card you are buying, but you can generally find gift codes starting at $10, and going all the way up to $100. Digital gift codes can be delivered instantly, making this a nice last-minute gift for any dad who loves shooting games, RPGs, action-adventure titles, and more.
3. Movie Theatre Gift Cards
Does dad love going to the movies? It’s easy to get a gift card delivered via email. He can use this gift card to pay for tickets or concessions at the local multiplex. There are lots of blockbusters coming out this summer, so he’ll definitely appreciate a gift card for a free movie night.
4. Gifts for Outdoorsmen or Athletes
If dad loves fishing or other outdoorsy pursuits, a gift card for Bass Pro Shops is an awesome Father’s Day gift idea. If he’s more into indoor sports or team sports, a gift card from Sports Authority might be better. Both gift cards can be delivered via email, and are available in increments between $25 and $100.
5. Amazon Gift Card
Amazon gift cards are a great last-minute gift idea for Father’s Day. They can be ordered online, and sent instantly via email. Dad can use his gift card to buy himself something nice, such as a new shirt, some fancy gourmet ingredients, or just use the balance of the gift card to offset a big purchase like a new TV or laptop. If you’ve been totally stumped about what to get for your dad, an Amazon gift card is always a solid choice. Gift codes can be delivered via email in an instant.
