With Father’s Day just around the corner, many of you may be asking the question – what should I get dad? Finding the perfect Father’s Day gift isn’t always easy, especially if the father in your life is the kind of guy who already has it all, but it doesn’t have to be an impossible task. By asking a couple of questions and really thinking about what makes your dad happy, you’re guaranteed to come up with a present he’s going to appreciate.
Stumped when it comes to finding a Father’s Day gift he’ll love? Here are a few suggestions he’ll definitely be glad to receive:
One of the best things you can gift your dad this Father’s Day? The opportunity to make memories together through a shared experience. Depending on the ages and interests of everyone involved, you could…
- Tour a brewery or sign up for a whiskey tasting
- Attend a football, baseball, or basketball game
- Catch his favorite band in concert
- Pick up some new skills in a cooking class
- Go to a comedy show
- Visit a theme park
The list goes on! Do a quick Google search to see what options exist in your area that fits within your budget and go from there.
A New Piece of Tech
In today’s high-tech world, it’s silly to try to avoid integrating technology into your life. If your dad is very interested in new gadgets and devices, consider something that’ll enhance his home – a Nest thermostat, a Ring doorbell, and security camera, or an Echo are all reliable options. And if he’s not too keen on modern technology, there are still great tech gifts that’ll impress him. A new fitness tracker (or accessory for his favorite device), portable phone charger or digital picture frame (loaded with your family’s favorite images) are sure to please.
Something for His Hobby
When you’re on the hunt for the perfect gift, think about what your dad loves to do in his spare time. Use that as inspiration to pick out your present, and you’ll be hard-pressed to make a bad choice. Whether he loves to play an instrument, homebrew, garden, camp, BBQ, stay active, cheer on his favorite sports teams, or chooses to spend his spare time pursuing some other hobby, you should be able to come up with something that’ll be both useful and thoughtful.
And if you know what dad likes to do but aren’t so sure what gift would complement his favorite pastime? Ask for ideas! Whether you wind up at a guitar store, an archery shop, or a gourmet grocer, there should be someone on staff who can recommend a few options if you tell them a bit about what you’re trying to do.
Don’t let your search for the perfect Father’s Day gift get you overwhelmed. Use these ideas to help you come up with a gift he’s guaranteed to appreciate, and you’ll rest easy knowing you’ve done your part to make Father’s Day special for dad.
