Last Minute Father’s Day Gifts Guaranteed to Bring a Smile

It's a given that we all value the father in our lives, but that doesn't stop a busy schedule from that "Uh-Oh" moment when you realize that you've forgotten to get dad something for Father's Day, which by the way is Sunday, June 16! With that said, dad probably doesn't need another tie and you still have time to pick up something for him that he'll really enjoy! This Father's Day, check out gifts of comfort for that special dad in your life.

A Good Night's Sleep

Egyptian Cotton Sheets - From Chateau Home Collection 800 Thread Count 100% Egyptian Cotton Sheets are made of the finest cotton, guaranteed to last through numerous wash cycles and the sateen weave adds additional silk-like softness. This brand uses an ethically certified factory in India, which is an added bonus. Available in Full through California King, you simply can't go wrong with this gift for dad and you can have it in 24 hours. 

Massage Them Tired Dogs

Okay, personally we don't do feet. Thankfully, HoMedics presents a pretty bangin' product that does the job perfectly. HoMedics Foot Salon Pro Footbath with Heat Boost Power  is a heated foot spa with a splash guard cover. HoMedics offers two powerful and adjustable hydro jets to relieve tight muscles and relax tired feet, two rolling nodes that provide a kneading massage (hitting those all important reflexology zones) and has a removable pumice stone so that dad can exfoliate his tootsies. Unlike many other foot spas, HoMedics Foot Salon Pro Footbath with Heat Boost Power has an over-sized tub that comfortably fits up to a men's size 14. Bonus - You can borrow this from dad! 

Let Dad Lounge

Is there anything better than lounging in the backyard on a balmy summer afternoon? From Le Papillon gift dad a zero gravity chair to lounge in. The Le Papillon All Seasonal Zero Gravity Chair offers a high quality removable suede cushion, with breathable textilene fabric that keeps you cool in summer. A locking system allows for the perfect chair positioning and a removable headrest is provided for additional comfort. No assembly required so dad can enjoy right away.

Quiet … Please

We all need some peace and quiet … rest assured that dad's no different. From Bose, QuietComfort 25 Acoustic Noise Cancelling headphones feature exclusive Bose advancements in noise reduction technology. Headphones offer advanced noise reduction across a wide range of frequencies, a lightweight around-ear fit dad can wear all day long, 
iInline mic/remote for music and calls on Apple devices.

Wrapped In Luxe

A comfy bathrobe and matching slippers and Pop may think that he's Hugh Hefner. But that aside, Dad's no less deserving of the most basic creature comforts. From L.L. Bean the Fleece Lined Rugby Robe ($84) features a hood, durable cotton exterior, and a warm, soft fleece lining. The sleeves are lined with soft jersey fabric and details include banded cuffs and a locker loop. You can find a multitude of moccasin style slippers to match the robe and L.L. Bean offers free shipping with no hassle returns.

The Zen Life

Dad deserves some serious pampering just as much as anyone else, and whom else would we turn to other than Golden Door? Give Dad the gift of ZEN with Golden Door’s Hinoki Collection! This collection features Hinoki Bath & Shower Gel ($44) that is a refreshing, aromatic bath and shower for all skin types; Hinoki Pacific Salt Body Scrub ($58) with Dead Sea salts, essential oils and detoxifying minerals; and Hinoki Body Moisturizer ($44) with cell regeneration and hydration that is lightweight, deeply hydrating. All, and more, can be found online at Golden Door

This list contains just a few ideas to give dad something special for Father's Day. Need more ideas? Check out TME's "Gifts For Him" section! And to all of the Dad’s out there … Happy Father’s Day! xo~ Team TME
