If you're still looking for a last-minute gift to celebrate the father figures in your life, we've got you covered.

For foodies: Caputo's subscription boxes bring a collection of fantastic treats with preparation ideas every other month. My family is always excited to get ours.

For music lovers: Pop by Randy's Records, tell the staff what your dad likes and see what treasures they unearth.

For sports fans: Take him out to the ballgame one last time at Smith's Ballpark with Bees tickets before the team moves to South Jordan.

  • Does he want in on the action? Sign him up for a golf lesson at Golftec.
  • Or stock up on Jazz gear during their Father's Day sale which ends June 16.

For history buffs: In the new "Unforgettable Utah," author Lynn Arave explores dramatic-but-unsung events in our history, from the state's first recorded earthquake to early tourism in Zion National Park.

For explorers: Check out our summer outdoor gear guide or plan a day hike with Dad.

  • For fun in town, run to the Natural History Museum of Utah to grab a copy of the new "Wild Wasatch Front" for field trip ideas that showcase urban nature.

For tabletop gamers: Visit Game Night Games, and pick out a hit. Some of our favorites are: Mysterium, Pandemic, Arkham Horror and Chronicles of Crime.

  • Make it a real gift and learn the rules before Sunday so pops isn't the one who's stuck deciphering the instruction manual.
