Father’s Day is right around the corner, which means in a mere five days your Dad will be sitting at the table expecting a gift from you. No need to panic – there are still a few ways to make sure your Padre gets the goods on Sunday and you can look like the favorite child.
So what are your options? One of the easiest (and fastest) ways of delivering a gift to Dad is a gift card. Of course, that opens up the possibilities to any number of restaurants or retailers. Amazon offers gift cards from a number of retailers, making it a painless and quick transaction.
Most retailers offer two-day shipping, which would ensure delivery by the weekend, but that generally comes with a fee of some sort. Amazon is currently offering free 1-day shipping on a number of products for Dad like watches, clothing and other accessories.
Sign up for a free trial of Prime and you’ll get two-day shipping for the next 30 days, just in time for Sunday. Prime is an excellent gift for Dad as well, aside from expedited shipping he’ll be able to take advantage of Amazon’s Instant Video Library of shows and its Kindle Library.
