Call him Father, call him Dad, call him papa: no matter the title, your family’s superhero deserves only the best on his special day. Finding the perfect Father’s Day gift is anything but a simple task. Thankfully, there’s a wide array of traditional and unconventional, pricey and pocket-friendly, sweet and sassy Father’s Day gift ideas to help you make up your mind.
Dad Jokes Done Right
“Dad, I’m hungry.”
“Hi hungry, I’m dad!”
Does this conversation sound familiar? If yes, then here’s a perfect way to honor your dad’s humor – by gifting him an entire collection of Dad Jokes!
Such collections will only bolster his repertoire of uncanny humor and make your family crack up even at the most unexpected of times. And if your dad is into practical jokes, you can take it up a few notches and gift him a book of pranks and watch him grin from ear to ear.
Electronic gadgets will always be a go-to gift for tech-savvy dads. Plus, it opens up plenty of opportunities to pick something that fits their specific interests. Not to mention, electronic gadgets are the safest bet in case you’re really at your wit’s end.
Is your father a shutterbug? You can gift him a camera or its accessories. Has he been working on setting up a home theater? A surround sound system or casting and streaming devices would help! Is he a fitness freak? Then a smartwatch would be wise! Does he spend his free time gaming? Consider a VR headset.
Let your father take a break from the digital pool and enjoy the experience first-hand. After all, the satisfying sound of an opening break is not something that can be replicated.
If your dad is an avid pool player who already has a table, you can always gift additional items such as pool table covers, gloves, chalk, cue tip tool, cue case, magic rack, and more! And for little indulgences in the sport, you can always opt for the cheaper and space-saving mini (or even pocket) pool!
Help your father get rid of the “dad bod” in style with an at-home gym.
All you need is some basic exercise equipment such as dumbbells, kettlebells, jump ropes, or a yoga mat. On the flip side, you can go all out and invest in treadmills, ellipticals, weight sets, and more. It all depends on the budget and preferences.
And if your dad is particular about maintaining his equipment, gym equipment covers can go a long way to show that you care about his hobbies.
Brew With You
Is your dad a beer enthusiast? Then a beer crafting kit will allow him to enjoy the fruits of his labor as he experiments to become a master brewer.
You can even participate in it as a shared activity. Sharing some homemade brews is the perfect way to spend Father’s Day and will probably bring up a nostalgic memory or two!
Got a leak in your sink faucet?
Is your dryer rattling too much?
Why won’t your car start up?
You know who can help you in such situations – your dad. So if Dad loves to tinker around the house or is crazy about DIY, then multitools like a Swiss Army Knife can be a useful addition to his collection.
Alternatively, you can also gift him power tools like a drill or table saw, to take his DIY game to the next level. Even accessories like tarps will be a useful gift for a handy dad.
With many dads working from home these days, sitting in front of a computer for long hours may wreak havoc with their necks and backs. A shiatsu massager can help relieve the tension through a deep, reverberating massage that can soothe his soul.
These massagers can be mounted on your traditional furniture, and you can mask them under sectional covers to make them less conspicuous.
Great Gift Cards
For a dad who has it all, you can gift him the gift of choice with a gift card. This gift card could be your dad’s ticket to finally purchase something that he may have put to the side to meet other pressing needs. And now, you get the chance to treat him for a change.
The gift card could be from his favorite restaurant, a hobby store, a membership club, a digital library, or even an activity that he enjoys. No matter which one you pick, he is sure to be pleased with his present.
