Gallery: 8 Last-Minute Father’s Day Gifts for the Procrastinator’s Papa

Father's Day is just a few days away, but if you've been procrastinating on finding the perfect present for your pops, don't worry—we've got you covered. Whether it be crafting a cool DIY gift or cooking dad a nice meal, we've got 8 last minute, earth-conscious suggestions that you'll be able to whip up for your dad in a snap. Your papa will never know that you waited until the last moment, and if he does, he might even be impressed that he raised such a resourceful kid.

Do you and your dad share a love of nature? If so, honor him by sending the Nature Conservancy a donation in his name. He’ll receive a Father’s Day eCard with one of three designs inspired by the great outdoors.

Does your dad prefer an ice cold brew to a fancy, expensive gift hands down? If so, give him the gift of green booze with a refreshing organic beer like Peak Organic or if he’s more of an oenophile, a tasty wine from a sustainably-managed vineyard like Wolffer Estate.

If your dad’s the guy at family gathering who’s always snapping photos, make him a handy homemade strap for his camera out of an old tie. It’s an easy project to do last minute that will seem like you planned it for weeks in advance.

Here’s a last minute gift that fathers who value practicality and frugality will truly appreciate—swap out all of your dad’s energy-guzzling incandescent bulbs with LEDs. It’s a task that he might have been thinking of doing himself but may not have known where to start and he’ll think of what a smart kid he has every time he sees his (lower) monthly energy bill.

    I love that camera strap tie idea. I would be a little scared about how sturdy it would be though. Another gift idea is to treat your father to a movie! BuyWithCause is a site where you can purchase 2 tickets to any AMC theater and 20% of the proceeds will go to the Alzheimer’s Association. Check it out here:
