If you’re scrambling at the last minute to find the perfect gift for Father’s Day, you’re not alone. Since Father’s Day is sandwiched between Mother’s Day and the Fourth of July, it tends to sneak up on a lot of us. But don’t panic — you’ve still got some time to shop for dear old Dad. Some classic Father’s Day gifts like grilling tools or a “world’s best dad” mug might sell out closer to the date (it’s June 18 this year, in case you forgot). But there are still plenty of cool gifts that you can order online that will arrive by Father’s Day.
We’ve rounded up some great gifts that can either be sent digitally or delivered to Dad’s door in two days or less via Amazon Prime. (If you don’t have a Prime subscription, it might be worth it to sign up for a free trial.) From a craft beer subscription to cool gadgets to the ultimate racing experience, this list has what you’re looking for to make Father’s Day special.
If Dad enjoys camping, backpacking or RVing, he probably already has all the standard gear he needs. But if he doesn’t have a hammock yet, believe us… he needs one right now. This portable hammock from Wise Owl is lightweight and easy to roll up and pack. And it’s so comfortable, he might just end up using it to lounge around in the backyard.

If Dad enjoys spending time in the kitchen or is a master at the grill, he’ll love this French ceramic pizza stone. It’s hard to beat the taste of homemade pizza, and this pizza stone makes it easy to turn out perfectly crispy crusts in the oven or on your grill. I’ve accumulated a lot of Emile Henry cookware over the years, and I’ve never been disappointed with the quality. This pizza stone will truly last you a lifetime.

If Dad enjoys a cold, frothy brew, give him the gift of a monthly beer subscription. The Craft Beer Club is a popular choice among craft beer enthusiasts — and for good reason. Each month you get a shipment of beer featuring small, independent brewers from around the country. Many of the tasty brews are award-winners and can be hard to get your hands on depending on where you live.
You can purchase a single box for $48 or enroll Dad in a subscription with ongoing shipments. Each box features two different breweries and a mix of four styles from each one, for a total of 12 beers. Once you’ve placed your order, you can print out a free gift announcement card that will tell him its on its way.

The Roku Express 4K Plus is our top choice for the best streaming device available. This handy little box adds nearly every streaming channel to any HDMI-equipped TV — from Netflix to Disney Plus to Peacock to HBO Max, and everything in between — at full 4K resolution with HDR support. If Dad enjoys watching shows, movies and more, this is an affordable gift that will go a long way.
If Dad always enjoys learning something new, give him a gift subscription to MasterClass. The online learning service offers over 180 classes taught by A-list celebrities with new content released each month. You can dive into cooking with Gordon Ramsay, poetry with Amanda Gorman, filmmaking with Martin Scorsese, skateboarding with Tony Hawk and more. A standard subscription for an individual costs $10 a month, or you can opt for the Dual plan (two devices) at $15 per month or the Family plan ($20).
If the father figure in your life is totally into books, look no further. This E Ink e-reader earned a CNET Editor’s Choice award for a reason. It’s lightweight, reliable and has built-in Bluetooth, so you can download Amazon Audible audiobooks and listen to them with wireless headphones. If you order via Amazon Prime, Dad should receive it within two days.

Nothing beats the gift of experience, right? If your dad has always craved the thrill of blazing around a racetrack at breakneck speed, you can give him just that. Gift vouchers start at $79 for the ride-along option, which hooks you up with a pro driver who will speed you around a track in a Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody sedan. And if Dad wants to zoom around the racetrack himself, the supercar racetrack experience starts at $186, and he can choose from one of over 35 racetracks across the US.
The JBL Clip 4 is one of our favorite mini Bluetooth speakers, and it’s a great gift for a dad who does a lot of traveling. It’s extremely portable, with an integrated carabiner clip for clipping onto a backpack, and it delivers impressive sound for its small size. With an IP67 water resistance rating, this durable little device can survive being dunked in shallow water and is dust proof.
If Dad’s an exercise nut — or if he’s simply been wanting to get in shape — consider giving him a subscription to fitness app Aaptiv. Unlike a lot of other fitness apps, Aaptiv is audio-only, which makes it great for outdoor training and workouts or for using with a bike or elliptical. He’ll be able to choose from over 6,000 workouts taught by trainers who will coach him and keep him motivated. Aaptiv usually costs $15 a month, but right now you can purchase a yearly subscription as a gift for just $50.

If your dad craves the ultimate outdoor adventure, consider giving him a 57hours gift card. The company offers guided tours, lessons and camps that will blow Dad’s mind, from backcountry skiing in British Columbia to rock climbing in Joshua Tree to kitesurfing in the Red Sea. Choose from short one-day adventures or weeklong getaways, depending on how much you want to pony up. They’re on the pricey side, but you can contribute with a gift card starting at $100.
