It’s not too late for Father’s Day shopping. If you haven’t found the perfect gift for Dad yet, Amazon still has plenty of last-minute options, from grill-friendly spices to woodsy-scented cologne. The best news? All our picks are under $50.

If He’s a Grill Master

If your dad feels most at home whipping up burgers for the family, there are endless gift options that will be right up his well-seasoned alley. Consider a butcher-approved spice set perfect for meats and veggies; spatula tongs (yes, this combination really does exist); or cookbooks from “The Barbecue Collection,” designed for steak lovers to find their perfect recipe. Bon appétit!

If Hobbies Are His Thing

With a new hobby every week, this dad can be hard to shop for. Getting ahead of his newest interest will ensure he loves your gift and offer a unique surprise when he opens it. If he’s a bookworm, a neck-hugging book light allows him to read late into the night (pair it with How to Change Your Mind, a fascinating look into the vast world of psychedelics). If he wants to try something new, watercolors might inspire some wall art. Or kick-start his green thumb with his very own philodendron monstera.

If He Wants to Soak Up the Sun 

A day at the beach is a popular activity to ring in Father’s Day (and celebrate summer), so gifting Dad outing-appropriate accessories is a foolproof recipe for success. JBL’s mini bluetooth speaker is perfect for clipping to a backpack for mid-trek sing-alongs. If he’s more the lounging type, a lime-hued cooler and reclining beach chair will offer the relaxation he craves on his special day.  

If He’s Due for a Little Self-Care

Sometimes the best gift is an opportunity to just unwind. Treat Dad to the ultimate day of rest and relaxation with products to make him feel his very best. Opt for an ice roller to soothe irritated skin, chic soap enriched with walnut extract, and a white noise machine with 24 sleep-inducing sounds for when the day is done. 

If He’s a Fitness Junkie

Always on the go, a dad who loves activities needs a gift to supplement his insatiable energy and love of adventure. Sporting sculptural wrist weights makes everyday errands feel like an accomplishment, while a smart jump rope connects to his phone to give him all the info on his cardio exercise. If he’s focused on post-workout care, a foam roller soothes tired muscles, and resistance bands offer an opportunity for advanced-level stretching.
