    39 Last-Minute Gifts Dad Will Actually Be Excited To Open

    If the holidays snuck up on you this year, have no fear. One of these gifts will be *chef's kiss* and dad will def agree.

    1. A phone camera lens kit so they can continue being the "cool dad" they are and document all of life's memories. This high-def 4-in-1 kit will come in handy when they want to take some cool nature photos or perhaps some sunset pics for their new 'gram (that you probs helped them create).

    2. heated razor set if you wanna give them the full barbershop experience from the comfort of home. It features an adjustable temperature setting and is fully waterproof. It also comes with a magnetic charging dock and two cartridge refills so they'll be set the next two times they need fresh blades.

    The magnetic charging dock wirelessly charges the razor for up to six shaves.

    Promising review: "Really nice product. The heat feels very nice on your face. It actually works pretty well. Because of the heat it gives out, you get a really nice close and comfortable shave without any nicks. It is a bit expensive, but for my skin it has worked very well when using a good gel cream." —George Z.

    3. A Sidetrak portable monitor they'll be so grateful for when it comes to tackling WFH tasks. If they're always squinting and complaining about how small their laptop screen is, adding this monitor will elevate them to CEO status. (Psst — this is also a great gift if dad is a video gamer and would appreciate a monitor they can move around the house)!

    This monitor has great picture quality with its HD, LED, and anti-glare screen. It has HDMI and USB-C ports and can work with a ton of operating systems like Mac, PC, Chrome, PS4, Xbox, Raspberry Pi, and Nintendo Switch. 

    Promising review: "This gadget has been a lifesaver! I give frequent virtual presentations and needed a lightweight extra screen that could not only move desk to desk in moments in a shared office space, but could also go in a suitcase for travel. This is PERFECT! It’s plug and play — seriously. The portability really can’t be beat! I’ve recommended it to many of my colleagues. I’m thrilled with the purchase!" —Cooking Nomad

    4. A white truffle-infused hot sauce in case they're a HUGE foodie and are never not pouring a condiment on their morning scrambled eggs (or any meal for that matter).

    5. A magnetic tool wristband so when they're fixing practically anything around the house, they can keep drill bits, nails, screws, and anything else made of metal *handy*.

    Promising review: "My husband always puts screws in his mouth and it bothers me so I bought this for him for Christmas. He used it for a project where he had to hold little screws and it worked perfectly! Ever done a project where you dropped a screw and can’t find it or it fell down a crack and have to figure out how to get it out? We most definitely have. I am excited that that will be no more! My husband was impressed with the magnetic strength and the side pocket. Worked like a charm." —JandD

    8. A Book of the Month subscription since they deserve something that they'll get to customize to their likes (reading likes that is). Each month they choose from several top-notch and newly released about a cool gift.

    9. A waterproof phone pouch to protect their mobile device if they love doing outdoorsy activities like fishing, boating, or hiking. Their phone will stay in pristine condition and if they happens to accidentally drop it in a river, they're covered.

    10. A fill-in-the-blank book so you can give them something thoughtful and from the heart that they'll cherish for years to come.

    11. slim money clip wallet that can hold up to 12 cards and has an RFID-blocking design so no one can wirelessly steal their credit card info. If they like to travel lightly, then this wallet will be perf for them to easily stow in their pockets.

    Promising review: Even though I am not a father (does puppy father count?), I owned a dad wallet for the better part of two decades. After planning a trip to Europe, I decided that my dad wallet wasn't something I wanted to bring; I just wanted the essentials and something that could fit in any pocket if needed. Enter this wallet. Not gonna go into major details but probably my favorite feature of this wallet is how snuggly it holds your credit cards. They don't move once they're in there. This wallet went halfway around the world and back and I didn't lose a thing. Highly recommend." —Craig

    16. A set of Bear Paws shredder claws perfect for the grill master who loves a good shredded chicken or pulled pork dish. They can toss the forks away and say hello to their new shredding BFF.
