Just because you're purchasing a gift for your dad at the last minute doesn't mean it can't have to be extra special. Flex your creative muscles as you find a quick and easy gift to give to your father at the very last minute.
Is your dad a wine aficinado or like to drink wine? If so, this may be the perfect gift for him. A wine dossier functions much like a scrap book, but for wines so he never forgets a bottle he's had. A wine dossier offers a space for the wine label, along with extra comments. Some may even include information like the date, tasting comments and other things like the occasion, vintage and year. RedEnvelope offers a leather wine dossier that can be embossed with your dad's initials.
Tin of Sweets
If your dad has a sweet tooth, this is the perfect last minute gift for him. Many shops and online retail suppliers offer tins of candies or cookies that can simply be shipped or given to your dad without any extra work on your part. But if you're a baker, you can whip up a batch of your dad's favorite cookies the night before his big bash and place them in a decorative tin. RedEnvelope offers a Mrs. Fields Nibblers classic tin of cookies for the dad who can't resist a tempting cookie.
A Throw or Blanket
A throw or blanket is a great last minute gift, and a thoughtful one at that. Pick out your father's favorite cozy material and color and give it to him on his special day. A blanket or throw is great for any dad as he can use it during his down town to keep himself warm, or use it to cuddle up with his children, significant other or pets. RedEnvelope offers a comfortable and luxurious chenille throw that can be monogrammed with your dad's initial in one simple click.
