Our feeling this morning when we realized Father’s Day is on Sunday: “&%$#@!” If you’re in the same boat, worry not, as an amazing thing called Amazon exists. We’ve done the hard work of scouring the site for gifts your dad will actually want—coffee mugs not included—so that you can simply click to buy and reserve your energy for this weekend, when you’ll be resisting the urge to argue with Pops about his archaic views on the proper age at which a woman should “settle down.” Here, our last-minute Amazon gift guide for the OG clueless-yet-lovable doofus in your life.
It's Not To Late To Buy Rad For Dad
We've never seen a more perfect dad gift than this: a collection of columns penned by Walt Whitman (originally under a pseudonym) in the mid-1800s. The book covers diet, exercise, grooming, dancing (get it, Walt) and more.
Your dad will have all the bragging rights when it comes time to camping or fishing or whatnot, as this fancy portable cooker is 100% solar powered.
For the fashionable father that we assume exists but couldn't tell you about from personal experience.
Whaaaaaat?! This awesome thingamajig includes needlenose pliers, regular pliers, wire cutters, a saw, a hammer (how is this possible?!), a bottle opener and more.
We really want to try this chili pepper–infused maple syrup—but can't buy it for ourselves because $20 syrup is a ridiculous first-world purchase—so we're using Dad as an excuse.
Dad probably needs a little wardrobe help, and we can't imagine what he could possibly find objectionable about this simple-yet-stylish shirt.
Odds are that your father thinks he already knows how to make the perfect burger, but that won't stop him from pouring over this tome for tips when no one is watching.
One of the cutest dad traits is the need to protect his tribe, which is why we think the newest Nest would be sure to satisfy. It's not actually available until June 30, but we have no doubt he'll think it's worth the wait.

Apparently, ancient Hindu warriors used these to train, and we like to imagine Dad—a professional channel surfer—alone in his little workout room, pretending he's among them while trying to stay in shape for the grandkids.
If your dad, like ours, refers often to how cool he used to be, this is the gift for him. It features more than 500 iconic covers alongside conversations with creatives like Shepard Fairey and Kim Gordon.
