My husband will probably agree when I say he’s a difficult person to shop for. So when it comes to Father’s Day, I’m always looking for ways to show him just how much me and the girls appreciate him. He is the cornerstone of our family and I feel the same way when it comes to my Dad as well.
Father’s Day offers a chance to show that special “Father” in your life just how fantastic you really think he is. Unfortunately, many children find that shopping for that “perfect” Father’s Day gift can be overwhelming, especially for the dad who has everything. I mean seriously, how many golf clubs or picture frames does he really need? Make this Father’s Day the best one yet with one of these wonderful gifts your dad won’t forget.
Father’s Day Gifts He Won’t Forget
- The gift of time
Give your father a gift certificate for an hour, two hours, or even an entire day of “you” time. Spend time just sitting around talking together, go on a long drive, or even spend the time doing your favorite activities. Don’t let the business of life get in the way of really spending quality time with your father. It’s especially important as we get older, because time is limited and we don’t know what tomorrow holds. So if possible, pencil in a slot on the calendar when the two of you can really spend some time reconnecting.
- A trip he’s always wanted
Does your dad love to travel but doesn’t have the time? Consider splurging on a fun trip the two of you can take together. Another option would be to pay travel expenses for both of your parents to go on a trip together. If money won’t permit anything extravagant, consider giving your dad a basket of souvenir items from the place he wants to go. Order mugs, t-shirts or even postcards online and give them to your father.
- The final addition to his collection
If your father has a collection, get him something great to go in it. This could be something unusual, rare, or something in high demand that he hasn’t been able to find. For example, get your dad a first-edition autographed copy of his favorite book or a custom made golf clubs for his next rounds. Whatever you get, make sure it’s unusual but still fits your dad’s personality so he’ll get to use it again and again while thinking of you.
Remember, Father’s Day is the perfect chance to show your dad just how much he means to you. The perfect gift shows not only how much you love your father, but that you took the time to carefully select the perfect present just for him.
