By Megan Koester

Life comes at you fast. With so much to do, sometimes you feel like you’d lose your head if it weren’t bolted on. Father’s Day is right around the corner, and you might be panicking if you think you don’t have enough time to buy some thoughtful, worthwhile last-minute gifts for Dad.

Don’t worry . . . stress less! He’ll love these easy Father’s Day gifts so much, he won’t even be able to tell they were purchased instantly from the convenience of your phone:

Movie Gift Card

Summer’s fast approaching, and there’s no better way to idle away the long afternoons than in the comfort of an air-conditioned theater with a cool flick. If the dad on your list happens to be a movie buff, give him the gift of cinema with a Fandango gift card, which you can customize with a picture of you as a kid or your old man’s favorite silver screen hero. He’ll be able to pick exactly which blockbusters or indie sleeper hits he wants to see, so there’s no doubt he’ll be getting what he wants.

Custom Photo Book

The story of his life is worthy of publication—so why not put it in print? A hardcover photo book from Walgreens is one of those last-minute gifts for Dad that will stand the test of time, just like your love. Best of all, it’s easy to create. Simply upload your favorite family pics and pick the book up at Walgreens the same day. Looks like Dad’s coffee table just got an upgrade!

Plane Tickets

Life’s hectic: If you’re anything like the rest of us, you don’t see your loved ones as much as you’d like. Right that wrong by getting your pop the gift of a long overdue visit on JetBlue. It’s one of those last-minute gifts for Dad that can create a lifetime of memories.

Coffee Subscription

For some, coffee isn’t a luxury—it’s a necessity. Make sure the dad on your list stays fully caffeinated by buying him a Dunkin’ Donuts Regular Refills subscription. His favorite roast will be delivered right to his door, right when he needs it. Just set it and forget it! Simple Father’s Day gifts don’t come much easier than this, and he’ll think about you every time he pours his morning cup of java.

A Priceless Experience

The dad in your life is one in a million. Why not give him the gift of an experience that’s just as priceless? These Priceless Possibilities cover the gamut, from a once-in-a-lifetime tour of his favorite baseball stadium to a meal he’ll be raving about for years to come, prepared by his favorite celebrity chef.

Sure, your present may happen to fall under the banner of easy Father’s Day gifts, but with these ideas he’ll think you’ve been planning it for months.

Ah, coffee. For some, it's not a luxury—it's a necessity. Make sure the dad on your list stays fully caffeinated by buying him a Dunkin' Donuts coffee subscription. His favorite brew will be delivered right to his door, right when he needs it.
