What do you get the man who already seems to have everything or says he doesn’t need a thing? We know so many sons and daughters who struggle with Father’s Day ideas each year. Here are our best ideas and tips for brainstorming that top-notch gift for your favorite dad.
Consider His Hobbies
Is your dad or husband a fisherman or boater in need of a new cooler, lures or an insulated tumbler to keep his drink cold? Golfers always love a new shirt or tokens for the driving range. What about yard men? Is there a handy new tool to help with edging his beds or an older tool that he could use replaced? Think about the things your father loves to do and brainstorm from there. Does he love to grill? A package from Omaha Steaks is sure to please!
Make It Personal
There’s nothing a father loves more than his kids and grandkids, so how about incorporating them into the gift? Did your child create some awesome artwork this year? Turn it into keychains, ornaments, mousepads, magnets and more at sites like Artsonia. Consider engraving a whiskey glass or insulated tumbler with a favorite saying. Is there a word that reminds you of Dad? Visit MyIntent for personalized tokens he can always carry with him, and include a heartfelt note explaining the special meaning.
Create an Experience
It’s really true that there is nothing better than time with family. Instead of searching for the perfect gift, consider creating some perfect moments. Throw a backyard barbecue with Dad’s favorite foods and games. Involving all ages in a multi-generational backyard mini-Olympics including croquet, bocce, cornhole and more could make for a great day!
Give a Memory Maker
Could you compile photos new and old into a photo or scrapbook? How about creating a Father’s Day video for your favorite dad? Quilts made from ties or t-shirts or written stories from your childhood make great gifts, too. If you can’t think of a memory to share, create some new ones. Write questions on cards and have Dad over for dinner or dessert. Take turns answering the questions and traveling down memory lane — or even learning new things about each other.
Consider Giving a Service
There’s nothing that enhances quality of life quite like giving someone the gift of their time back. Think about car wash/detail gift certificates, so he doesn’t have to clean the car himself. If he’s a health nut, sign him up for some months of meal deliveries or local produce, which saves trips to the grocery store. Or consider giving our personal assistant services, where Dad can pass his day-to-day errands over to us, sit back and relax, and spend an evening however he likes. Just give us a call!
