ith Father’s Day fast approaching, many of us are on the lookout for a thoughtful gift that we can get the father figures in our lives 一 a dad, a grandfather, an uncle, or someone else who’s guided you through life. They do a lot for us on a daily basis such as helping out with physical tasks, taking financial responsibility, and teaching us life lessons at every step.
This Sunday, June 19th, get your dad the gift(s) that he deserves. In this blog, we’ll go over some gift ideas that dads everywhere will love. These universal gifts are great last minute ideas as well if you’ve been procrastinating:
You can never go wrong with a nice watch. It’s an accessory that can be used and worn every day and when your dad looks at it, it will be something that reminds him fondly of you.
Watches are always a meaningful gift. It keeps you present and in the moment, and makes you acknowledge the things that are most important to you. Wearing a nice watch also adds an air of confidence to the person who is wearing it.
It doesn’t necessarily need to be luxury either, as long as it’s fashionable, sleek, and looks nice. Work with what you can afford to get your dad a nice watch. In this case, it’s the thought that counts and the concern is usability and functionality.
Getting your dad a book of his interest is a great way to show your consideration for him. It could be any topic, fiction/nonfiction, or any genre that sparks his curiosity.
It doesn’t have to be a novel either if he is not into reading. For example, if your dad is into astronomy or space related things, there are many photo books with images with brief captions that go over what’s happening in the image.
Many dads are into comic books and grew up with them as children as well. They appreciate receiving those types of gifts and cherish them for years to come, especially if it adds to a collection that they already have.
Let’s face it, dads always need a pair of new shoes. Check out your dad’s shoe collection to narrow down what he might need, whether it’s a new pair of sneakers, dress shoes, a fresh pair of boots, or something else.
Dads love a gift that is practical and useful for them. A good pair of shoes can last a long time. If a high quality pair of shoes is added to their collection, they won’t even think twice about what they’re wearing on their feet for many years.
It’s also beneficial for the person you're gifting them to if they have a health issue related to their feet — a decent pair of comfortable shoes can even increase their quality of life, and that is priceless.
Of course, not everything needs to be materialistic. You can also give your dad the gift of time by doing an activity or multiple activities during the day. Think about the types of hobbies that your dad enjoys or the events that he likes to attend.
Some activities might cost some money, such as going to a sporting event or other game, but other activities can be free such as outdoor activities like hiking and fishing. Consider the types of things that you both have interest in so you can enjoy them together.
You can do something that’s new to the both of you or something that you have been loving doing together for years that’s special to you.
