Father’s Day is quickly approaching and you have no idea what to get for him. Whether he is your father, the father of your children, or a father figure in any other way, it might seem like there is no good way to show him how much you truly care. However, one great way to show Dad your appreciation is simply to demonstrate how well you know him. A gesture for one person may mean just as much as a gift to another, so knowing your recipient is the first step to getting the perfect Father’s Day gift.
Once you have a handle on his interests and those things that truly give him joy, your job becomes a lot easier. Look over this varied list of suggestions and you may just find one that will fit him perfectly.
BBQ Briefcase: The Master of the Grill deserves all the best equipment for his art form. A BBQ briefcase comes complete with all the tools he will need for a great BBQ. Especially if he is a veteran at the grill, it is likely many of his tools are worn out and in need of replacement.
Subscription to a Monthly Man Box: If you want to show your appreciation for more than one month, consider a monthly subscription box. There are many different companies providing such boxes include clothing, accessories, trendy items, shaving necessities, etc. Find one that will fit his personality.
Do the Chores He Doesn’t Enjoy: Not all gifts need to be store-bought. If Dad is someone who doesn’t enjoy certain chores, what better way to say “I love you” than to do them for him?! Mow the lawn, do his laundry, or maybe just shine his worn out shoes.
Window Tinting: For the man who cherishes his automobile, you might consider getting his car windows tinted. As mentioned here, window tinting reduces incoming light, reduces glare, and blocks damaging UV light and infrared light (which keeps the car cooler). Not to mention he will have added privacy and great aesthetics to boot!
Beard Pack: If your dad has been sporting a nice beard this year (or every year since you can remember) get him a gift to help keep it looking great. Get him a beard pack complete with a beard wash and some beard oil.
A Day Doing Whatever He Wants: Family get together? Golfing with a buddy? Enjoying time to himself without anyone around? Whatever his perfect day entails see what you can do to make it happen for him.
Collection of All the Things He’s Taught You: Did your dad teach you that duct tape fixes everything, that no man is good enough for you, or how to catch a fish with your bare hands? Put together a quote book full of the wealth of knowledge you have acquired from him over the years. It will be a great way to store memories and preserve them in one neat place.
Sign Him Up for a Class: If there is something Dad has always wanted to learn, but never got around to, you might consider signing him up for a class. Cooking class, concealed weapons permit class, or perhaps learning a new language are all great options.
A Dad’s How-To Guide to Parenting: Becoming a parent can be overwhelming so help a guy out. There are many books (some more serious than others) that will show Dad how to…well, be a dad! Although we all know this book may be used to prop the baby up on the couch more than anything at least it will get used.
Active Gear: Do you have an active father or father figure? Purchase some gear to help him on his next adventure whether he loves hiking, biking, running, rock climbing, or any other sport. You can even purchase an entry into an event he has been wanting to participate in, such as a triathlon or a relay race.
Book Subscription: For the bookworm in your life who has a tablet, you might consider buying him a subscription so he can stock up on all the electronic books he can download. You might also consider buying him a tablet like a NOOK or Kindle made specifically with book reading in mind.
No matter what you decide to give him for Father’s Day, Dad will be happy to know he is loved and appreciated by those who mean the most in his life.
