Last-Minute Father's Day Gift Ideas for Bad Sons and Daughters

So you haven't bought dad anything for Father's Day? Swallow your shame and pick up one of these gifts to make sure that your pappy still loves you.

Dad would have bought you something by now. Here it is, the Saturday before Father's Day, and you haven't even thought about the man that reared you. Well it's too late to wallow in guilt, so here are five ideas that will preserve your father-son/daughter relationship.

1) Think operational. Perhaps your dad is of the handy variety, and he's always got something new to fix. Remember what that is, then head on down to and grab him the tool he needs to get the job done.

2) Grab your own hardware. The problem with buying things for adults is that they have disposable income and already have what they want. So find out what dad needs done around the house, grab some gloves and a rake and show your appreciation through sweat. Nothing says "I Love You" like yardwork.

3) Think carnivorous. The barbeque is a staple for all manly holidays, so think about what dad needs for the grill. New grill tools? Propane grill instead of charcoal? Membership to a Steak of the Month club?

4) Gadget time. If dad likes to own but never use the latest technology, consider the IPad, Kindle or the Bluetooth Watch with Caller ID Display (sounds useless, but you know dad...).

5) Go Tacky. When all else fails, grab a t-shirt or a mug that says "World's Greatest Dad." Just hope he believes and doesn't resent you.

Hey Nathan, First let me wish all fathers a Happy Father's Day. Secondly, Here are two more things that you could add to your list that wouldn't cost a dime that I feel fathers everywhere would appreciate. Acknowledgement and respect, much more powerful than anything you could pick up at Home Depot don't you think??
