21 Last Minute Gifts for Dad for Father's Day

BlogHer Original Post

Hi. Did you know Father's Day is on Sunday? As in this Sunday, June 16, 2013. Yeah. I knew that. Except then I forgot. Whoops. To be fair, my husband will get to kick back on the beach with a beer in one hand, possibly a beer in the other hand and the knowledge that there's going to be steak later in the day. In fact, so will my dad. Hooray for accidental mutli-generational vacations that occur on Father's Day! But if you can't whisk the dads in your life off to the beach this Sunday, check out what some other great bloggers are putting together for Father's Day.
