Gone are the days of buying dad a tie and calling it Father’s Day. He deserves a bit more creativity when it comes to the perfect gift, and there is no better way to say “I love you” and “you’re just the best” than with a present that is delicious (or pairs well with delicious things). After all, they say the quickest way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. (And I can personally vouch for this.) 

Lucky for all you last-minute shoppers, Amazon boasts a bevy of wonderful items that ship in 24 hours or less. And even luckier for you penny-pinchers: They’re all priced affordably at less than $20!

Now you have no excuse to not celebrate the man who gave you life or the man who raised you, or the man who you call sugar daddy (the economy is tough, after all #nojudgment). 

Check out 10 awesome options below.

Barbecue Rubs To Go: Grill Edition Gift Set, $14.99

Aside from being an awful child, the biggest offense you can commit is under-seasoning meat on the grill. Help dad prevent a protein tragedy with this barbecue rub set that features flavors like Cajun, Caribbean, Mexican, Southwest and Memphis BBQ. 

Assorted Nut and Pretzel Platter | Pizza Nut Pie, $12.99

The next best thing to an actual pizza (which clearly wouldn’t travel well via UPS) is a pizza-shaped tray full of pizza-flavored almonds, peanuts and cashews. All that’s missing is pepperoni, but buying him a cured or dried variety in addition to this set would be both inexpensive and clever. You’re welcome.

If dad does forget to season the steaks and chicken he’s tossing on the grill, he’ll need to salvage the meal with one of these five hot sauces: Mango-Habanero, Chipotle, Sriracha, Green Chili and Cayenne.

Lucky Beef Jerky DIY Original Kit, $9.99

Be less of a jerk and buy dad a jerky-making kit so he can take on the new and exciting hobby of curing his favorite meats. It’s a welcomed departure from golf, fishing and other stereotypical dad activities that are, frankly, so played out. (Says the homosexual.)
