Father’s Day is a special day for celebrating the important men in your life. But what is the best way to celebrate them? Handmade cards and home-cooked meals are always much appreciated, but they’re not the only things you can do for Dad. There’s no shortage of unique Father’s Day gift ideas, and here are just a few that will really surprise and impress him.
I’ve been known to buy a gift card to Home Depot or Lowe’s and call it done, and while many men can appreciate this sort of gift it seems like kind of a cop-out. Instead of going for the impersonal gift card, why not try a personalized hammer? If your dad always seems to lose (or lend out) his hammer, this is the perfect gift because you can put his name on it and ensure it can always find its way back to him.
Just this past Christmas, my mom bought my dad (and me) a brand new Kindle Fire. Five months later, that’s one of the first things my dad reaches for when he gets home from work. There’s no denying it – men love fun electronic gadgets. Think digital cameras, MP3 players, wide-screen TVs, DVD players, laptop computers. Anything. As long as it’s electronic, chances are Dad will probably love it. Be forewarned, though. Many of these popular Father’s Day gift ideas in particular can be pricey, so make sure you save up in plenty of time to make your purchase.
Personalized gifts are always winners.
Picture frames, plaques, and figurines can commemorate a particularly special Father’s Day.
Or you can purchase mugs with photos or special messages to share your love for Dad in a real and personal way.
Now let’s talk about something not many dads like to talk about very much: apparel. Whether they like it or not, dads can always use work clothes, casual clothes, or chore clothes. Or how about a carefully selected personalized t-shirt that features heartfelt sentiments like “#1 Dad” or “Best Dad Ever.” These would be especially nice Father’s Day gift ideas for the man who is celebrating his very first Father’s Day.
Other popular gifts for Father’s Day are, of course, the crafty items you can make with your children at home, especially while they are young. Anything from the heart will be popular with Dad! So, don’t sweat it if you don’t have a lot of money to spend on Dad this year. Even a rock hand-painted with nail polish can be one of the most special Father’s Day gift ideas. Get creative. Think outside the box. And let Dad know you’re thinking about him this Father’s Day.
So, tell me: What are you planning on getting your dad for Father’s Day?
