Last Minute Father Day Gift Ideas

Do you still need a Father’s Day gift? I have a few last-minute gifts that are thoughtful, unique & Dad will be able to use it all year long & on Father’s Day.

I love giving the gift of quality time & being able to do something with others, so I geared this gift guide towards fun activities that you can gift your Dad and purchase today if needed.

While I enjoy being a gift giver, but I don’t like to give the usual items…thinking outside of the box & being creative is my specialty.

We all want to show Dad how much he is appreciated & there are so many ways to do so. Here are my three last-minute ideas that I know your Dad will love & enjoy.

State Park Pass

Price varies per State, Oregon – $30/year or $50 for two years

A unique gift that Dad while enjoy all year long is a state park pass. It allows him access to all that nature offers with an annual pass that covers the entry cost each time. Many state parks have a day entry fee, so this gift would allow him to go anytime, without charge.

Who wouldn’t love getting a pass to any park & heading on an adventure every weekend?

My husband loves to be outdoors. He has especially taken to disc golf in the past few years, so this pass would allow him access to his favorite courses and parks without having to pay each time. Pretty cool!

This is just one of many passes to choose from in Oregon. They also have a thousand trails camping pass, annual northwest forest pass and many others. What a great way to enjoy the outdoors. Here is another blog post to take a look at for some additional fun activities to do in the Pacific Northwest 

Be sure to do research for your state, as some states offer a variety of passes. Oregon has a few styles, including this one pass good for a year for state parks. California has 3-4 different styles for different parks and activities.

Another gift idea for the nature-loving Dad is a membership to The Oregon Gardens.

Located in Silverton, Oregon, this expansive property offers breathtaking gardens, walking paths & an array of additional amenities, such as a resort, gift shop & cafe. With 80 acres of gardens, you can’t go wrong visiting, exploring & taking in the Oregon views.

Their membership ranges in price and offers everything from free admission to discounts on special events.

The Oregon Garden Membership

This weekend, they are hosting Oregon Brewfest, an event with over 60 breweries pouring 120 different beers & ciders. There will be live music & delicious food for a fun-filled weekend party. Happening this weekend, this would be great to take Dad out for the day. The weather is looking to be about 80 here in Oregon, so even more of a reason to get outside.

Winery Events & Tastings

Prices vary on winery and location. Tastings start around $15/person around the Willamette Valley

There are a handful of events going on at local wineries here in Oregon that Dad & the whole family can enjoy together this Father’s Day Weekend. Wine tastings, special walk-through’s at different vineyards & summer kickoff events, such as wine parties & special access passes are just a few that are taking place.

Does Dad have a favorite winery that he likes to visit? Many wineries have special clubs & memberships that can be joined when you visit & purchase their wine selections. Then, you receive extra special benefits throughout the year.

These perks include discounts on wine, free tastings, exclusive right-to-buys & much more.

One winery in the area that offers this membership is Bells Up Winery in Newberg, Oregon. Tucked right up on a hillside looking out at the Chehalem Valley, Bell’s Up Winery is a beautiful winery owned, grown & operated by David & Sarah Specter.

They offer a Fanfare Club membership that includes an array of benefits from wine discounts galore to complimentary tasting for you & your guests.

This is a must visit winery when exploring Willamette Valley wineries. Be sure to purchase a few bottles, a membership for Dad, then schedule your appointment for a tasting soon, as they become quite popular in the summer months.

Bells Up Fanfare Club

A wonderful resource to find out about local winery events is Willamette Valley Wines website. It provides details about all the weekend Father’s Day events & tickets that can be pre-purchased. Head on over to Willamette Valley Wines website to see some amazing events that are taking place in the wine country here in Oregon on Father’s Day weekend.

How about a delicious lunch with your Dad & family overlooking the beautiful scenery at Youngberg Hill Winery? A handpicked menu is waiting for you and your loved ones…no need to cook! Sounds good & delicious to me.

I can’t wait to gift one of these to my husband for this Father’s Day. What ideas or gifts did you have in mind for this year?

Take care,

    • How interesting! I would love celebrating it in the Fall. We love playing disc golf. Thanks for reading.

  • We usually hangout at home while my hubby goes to the movies for the day. He’s so busy at work that he doesn’t have time to see the newest movies so this is the perfect gift. A day to relax.

    These are great out-of-the-box ideas! I love giving things that are experiences rather than objects. My husband would love a brewery tour, especially if he got to go with some guy friends. And I love your husband’s comment above 🤗

    • Thank you. A brewery would be so fun! He is very sweet…definitely a big supporter of my new journey.

  • This makes me sad we don’t live in Oregon anymore. So many great outdoor activities.

    • We are very lucky for the beautiful area…hope you can visit soon! 🌲💚
