We can all agree that dads are underappreciated.
Finding the perfect gifts for our dads can be really tricky. Ughh! Plus it is super stressful, we barely always know where to start from. With that in mind here are some ideas for gifts that any dad would love.
The most important thing to do first is to ask the question:
“How well do I know my Dad?”
“What would be of value to him?”
1. A Note or Journal
A note or journal is a perfect gift, expressing your love for him, acknowledging the little things he does that are meaningful to you, and recognizing the sacrifices he’s made that you may not have appreciated enough. This way, you create an emotional connection, letting him know that you truly notice and value everything he does.
2. A Personalized Gift
A photo album with relatable memories, a custom mug with a cute excerpt that makes him smile. For example; “best dad in the world” or a mug with his picture on it. These are items that will stand out to any dad and make him feel special.
3. A subscription box
A subscription box tailored to suit his interests is another thoughtful gift. If your dad loves wine a lot, you could get a monthly subscription to a winery or if he loves golf, a monthly subscription isn’t such a bad idea. It could also be a month’s delivery of his favorite snacks. This action will demonstrate to him that you are aware of his interests and genuinely care about them.
4. An Experience
Do you have a busy dad? If yes, planning a getaway for him would be a very good idea. A sporting event to pump him up, a concert to see one of his favorite artists or a planned picnic where he could relax for the time being. Such gestures would show how much you care about his wellbeing.
5. A Practical Gift
Gift items like a new tool, a new suit for work, a new gadget, or a gift card to his favorite home improvement store are always very thoughtful things to present as a gift to your dad.
For dads that appreciate a good laugh, try out a funny gift, something hilarious that’ll crack him up. For example; a set of silly socks or a T-shirt with absurd writing that would completely get him laughing out loud, a T-shirt with the writing “Mummy’s Pet”, a book of dad jokes could keep him entertained for hours, or a subscription to a comedy streaming service that would create endless laughter.
For dads who are trendy fashionista; a pair of sneakers from a brand he really likes isn’t a bad idea or a T-shirt that suit his style. All these would be greatly appreciated and loved.
For dads who are in love or intrigued by new technologies; a gadget is the best gift idea, a voice-controlled smart speaker like an Amazon Echo or Google Home can give tips about things he needs to know, give reminders for meetings or time for medicine, making life easier.
A virtual reality headset can take his gaming to the next level or a smartwatch that can help him stay connected and on top of his fitness is also a good idea.
We do not know how long we’re going to be with our parents, and dads play a major role in our lives, it’ll be so nice to put a genuine smile on their faces making them feel appreciated and also letting them know we see them.
