Dads. They battle the monsters that live under the bed, scare away boys, and embarrass you in front of girls. A guy that can do all of that doesn’t deserve a cliche gift like a tie. Here are some gift ideas for all the great dads out there!
The Perfect Match
Nothing is quite as adorable as wearing something that’s dad inspired. Maybe you can cheer and jeer together while representing his favorite team during the FIFA World Cup. Perhaps you’ll wear cowboy boots to dinner because your dad refuses wear anything else. While it’s super cute with young children, it turns into a hilarious ordeal with older ones! They say that imitation is the greatest form of flattery. It’ll be a great story to share and be an awesome bonding experience!
His Day, His Games
Whether your dad is into video games, sports, or nature strolling, take part in his favorite activities! Don’t worry about if you’ll be able to keep up. Just have a good time and he’ll have a good time too! The point is to do something for him and he’ll appreciate your thoughtfulness. He gets to do what he loves, while spending time with the people that matter most. It’s a win-win!
It’s Not Always About Needs
Adult life has a lot to do with compromise. Vacation may turn into a “staycation” and car payments may trump concert tickets. This father’s day, forget about what he needs and give him something that he wants. That’s not to say you should throw your entire life savings into buying him his own private island, but rather something your dad has had his eye on and hasn’t been able to get for himself. Maybe he’s been wanting a set of new golf clubs, a new G-Shock watch, or a seven-course dinner. Show that you’ve been paying attention, even though he’s been busy.
Sometimes parents spend all of their time working. Even weekends can be full of planning, visits, and school events. Is your dad a busy bee? Maybe he just needs some R&R! Seriously, who wants to say “no” to a nap and not doing the dishes? Try giving him a day where he does nothing. No chores, no worrying about the bills, no anything. Just a relaxing day at one his favorite hangouts, at home, or a spa. The only worry he should have that day is whether or not he wants dessert after dinner.
The Dad Shirt
Shirts are go-to gifts for dads and we’re always talking about the differences between fashion and style. While there are things out there that look like “dad” shirts, your dad deserves something that really matches him. For example, if he’s the type to roll up those sleeves and get down to work, don’t get him something where he has to monitor how much he sweats. If he’s a 7 Diamonds guy, but doesn’t like polos, stay away from a polo. Get him something that truly fits his style and not yours or anyone else.
