5 Last Minute Father's Day Gift Ideas

We've offered suggestions all week, but some folks like to wait till the last minute to act. Hey, we understand. If you're running short on time and you still aren't prepared for Dad's big day, we've got you covered.

1.) Send an e-card. What's easier (or faster) than sending an email? Browse the Sierra Club's Father's Day e-card selection to find a fit for your pops.

2.) Plan a trip for the future. You're busy now, but you have free time on the horizon. Book a trip with Sierra Club Outings or just make a date to go for a hike in your local park.

3.) Give him a membership. Go online to enroll your dad in a CSA program or order an annual pass to the national parks.  

4.) Cook dinner. Swing by the farmers' market on Sunday and pick up some local veggies to throw on the grill or toss into a salad. Your company combined with a cold brew and a tasty meal should make Dad feel appreciated.

5.) Sponsor a wild place. Protect the planet in your dad's name with the Sierra Club's Sponsor a Wild Place program. Make a donation online and he'll receive a rucksak or plush animal in the mail.
