5 Best Last Minute Fathers Day gifts

You did again didn’t you?! You forgot Father’s day was this Sunday *facepalm*. Don’t worry, I’m not here to shame you, I’m here to help you.

It’s a cringeworthy truth but dad’s usually get the short end of the stick when it comes to Father’s day. Unlike Mother’s Day, Father’s Day always seems to sneak up on us out of nowhere.

Dad’s are amazing. They too deserve more that just socks and ties … even if it’s a last minute thought. Lets make these last minute thoughts, considerate ones.

Here are five last minute ideas worthy of the most important man in your life:

Fly fishing kit


Along the banks of the Zambezi river is where my dad would wander off to for his alone time. I knew this because every Sunday evening, dad would come home with fresh Zambezi Brim.

If your dad is anything like mine, he’d definitely appreciate this gift.


Camping cookware set


Hold on, hold on. Don’t knock it yet. He’ll definitely appreciate it because it is something he’d never think about for himself but yet it’s one of those things that will definitely come in handy.

Trust me. When he comes back from his next camping/arm/village trip, he’ll thank you for it.


Skincare and beard set


This gift is great for dads who could use a few more self-care products than a two-in-one shampoo and conditioner. Once he lathers on these soothing natural products, he won’t want to use anything else.


The ultimate Braai kit


Let him show off his best braai skills with a Braai kit.

This braai kit will allow him to show-up and show off at the next weekend gathering.

As a kit, he takes it with him wherever he goes. So now he has no excuse to blame for the burnt beef because he had to use your uncle’s no handle fork.


Beer-making kit


Traditional beer is essentially craft beer. Craft beer is a growing phenomena amongst novice beer makers.

Make your dad feel like a beer connoisseur with this beer kit which he can now use to brew more than just Tombo.


Show your dad some much needed love this Father’s Day. He’s not so bad.
