Father’s Day Gift Guide
Did you already forget that Father’s Day is right around the corner?
By the way, this year it’s Sunday, June 17th.
That’s okay. We’re so focused on work, life, relationships, birthdays, promotions, that holidays like Mother’s and Father’s Day end up falling by the wayside.
But if you’re a father, you know how amazing it feels when your child shares their love and appreciation for you in a special way. And if you’re not a father, just know that it means a lot to Dad. Use this opportunity to make up for any other Father’s Day you’ve let slip by; or keep up your winning streak of always choosing the perfect gift.
This Father’s Day gift guide will help you narrow down the many options on the internet, and lead you to something original, heartfelt, and as awesome as your dad! Get to giving!
A Father’s Day Gift Guide
Father’s Day will come sooner than you think. Shop now and show up prepared with a unique Father’s Day gift you didn’t have to buy under the strain of procrastination.
Ask yourself what type of guy your dad is, then read on.
Is He the Adventurous Type?
If your dad loves being outdoors, mountain biking, participating in triathlons, and the like, consider getting him a new gadget (we’re talking about those smartwatches) which tracks activity and heart rate. He’ll love the ease that technology brings to recording all of his stats.
Is He a Collector?
Check out your paper for cool local events, such as antique book fairs, air shows, indie markets, and such. Go with your dad to one in the next couple weeks and buy him something he can’t take his eye off of. Then surprise him on Father’s Day.
Is He a Sports Lover?
Custom embroidering really knocks it out of the park. Check out local shops that offer custom work, then get him a perfectly fitted jersey with his last name on it.
Check out coupon sites for specials at gyms. Go rock climbing with him at a local indoor gym; take him to his first yoga glass; try a bow-hunting experience. Then you can take him out afterward for a protein shake. On you, of course.
Is He a Foodie?
Never underestimate the idea of food as a gift. Treat your dad to an amazing homemade salmon dinner (makes you happy and healthy!), or a new restaurant downtown. If he loves charcuterie, stop by the market and buy an assortment of meats and cheeses for a basket.
Accompany your basket with some organic wine or craft beer. Eating, drinking, and talking about the different flavor profiles will be fun and bonding.
Honor Your Father
Don’t forget the best, and most important part, of Father’s Day, the reason it was made a holiday in 1972 (after years of being celebrated): to honor and enjoy your father.
It’s as simple as that. As long as you respect your father through careful thought and honest effort, he’ll know that you’re proud to be his child.
This can be done in any way that feels natural and right to you, from making a handcrafted scrapbook; to enjoying an afternoon at a museum; to buying an antique watch; to hanging out at the driving range.
We hope this Father’s Day gift guide was able to give you some ideas. Let us know how your holiday goes!
