Alright, last-minute gifters. We know who you are! All of us get busy from time to time and mean to order a gift, then suddenly the weeks have passed and we realise that Father’s Day is this very weekend. If you’re out of ideas and short on time, sending Dad something fantastic in the post or even online is a quick solution to your gifting dilemma. Choose a classy single malt hamper or a round of golf, but no matter what you choose, do it soon!

Food and drink gifts:

If Dad is the foodie type, why not send him a special hamper? Virginia Hayward has a nice range of Father’s Day ideas, including the Glenmorangie Single Malt Gift Basket (£57.50). Tucked inside the hamper are Walkers shortbread rounds, Brodies Coffee Connoisseurs handmade chocolates and Glenmorangie 10-year-old single malt scotch whisky. Choose nominated day delivery to have it arrive by Friday, or for Saturday delivery you’ll pay a good bit extra (£15), but if you’ve waited this long, you might not mind the extra cost!

For the chocoholic Dad, the Chocolate Survival Kit from Cadbury Gifts Direct even includes two bottles of organic beer to go with his choocie fix. The best bit? It’s only £16.50!

If your father’s more of a wine aficionado, Vintage Wine Gifts carries a huge selection of wines. A gift voucher is a great solution for Dad to choose exactly what he wants from the site, and they’re available in amounts all the way from 10 quid through £500!

Experience Days:

What I love about Red Letter Days is they have the option to send an evoucher, or if you send a gift pack or envelope, you can still send a temporary evoucher as well. This means you really can wait ‘til the last minute to order your gift, and Dad will be none the wiser! There’s a great range of Father’s Day gifts available at 20% off from Red Letter Days, but I’d definitely choose the white water rafting for two experience (£99). I went on a rafting excursion last year with my family and it was brilliant! Definitely a memory-making day with your dad.

At Into the Blue, you can even print a temporary voucher to place inside Dad’s card if you’ve waited until say, Sunday morning to place the order for your voucher. We’ve got some brilliant codes as well, and if you spend over £25, next-day weekday special delivery is free! Give dad a few laps in a Ferrari, a helicopter ride, archery lessons or loads of other experiences!

We have a code for 15% off Father’s Day experiences at Activity Superstore, so you can shop away straight up to 17 June and save from their Father’s Day gift ideas range. Orders placed for special delivery are guaranteed for next day arrival if you place your order before 11:30 a.m. If you’re not sure what to give, the ‘Ultimate Choice for Adrenaline’ (£75) is a good option, as your father can choose from 30 different experiences! On a budget? The ‘Ultimate Golf Package’ is now 65% off at just £29, and includes four free rounds of golf vouchers, five 2-for-1 vouchers, a 2-for-1 golf lesson voucher and a golf handicap certificate.
