To all the wonderful dads out there, we love you. You’re brilliant and we are so proud to have you by our side with everything we do.
But we also know that you don’t always like receiving gifts. In fact, we know that sometimes, it really is just the thought that counts. Even if you get it wrong, at least you’ve shown that you thought about buying your father something.
Instead of the same old socks and chocolates, it’s time to put your thinking cap on. If you’re not great with gift ideas, then this is the list for you. From a beer bouquet to a custom-made tie, we have got you covered.
So, along with a card telling your dad how great they are, here are some easy peasy gift ideas for Father’s Day!
1. Personalized Custom Star Map
The best dates to use are something personal to them, such as the date as their birthday and the city they were born in, or the time and place where they proposed to their better half!
You can pick up a personalized star map from Twinkle In Time. Write a message underneath the map too if you would prefer not to get him a card.
2. Beer Bouquet
We said earlier that sometimes it’s the thought that counts. In this case, the thought is brilliant and perfect for dads everywhere that love a cool refreshing beer during this time of year.
Ask your mom about your dad’s favorite beers and arrange them in a bouquet as they do over here at Unoriginal Mom. This makes them look a little bit fancier as opposed to just a few bottles in a box that you can pick up at the supermarket.
You never know, he may even want to share one with you as a thank you – if you’re old enough of course.
3. Grill Set Holder
When Father’s Day comes around, it usually marks the time to turn on the outside grill and start a barbeque. If your dad loves to cook on the grill, he will need a place to keep all his knives and other cooking equipment.
This is where your grill set holder, like this one from Lil Luna, comes in. If you want, you can create on yourself and add a personal touch to the gift.
What better gift than the gift of great food – and with your grill set holder, your dad can cook to his heart’s content without asking you or anyone else where his favorite set of tongs are.
4. Custom T-Shirt
Not many dads like to go shopping so if yours doesn’t either, don’t worry, you are not alone. While they may not be picky about the clothes they wear, at the end of the day, you still want them dressing nice.
Alternatively, you can get him something with a print of a classic dad joke or a line saying ‘Best Dad Ever’ that he has to wear for the rest of the day (and next year obviously).
One of the best places to pick up a custom t-shirt is at www.screenprintthis.com; you can get high-quality custom t-shirts for just under 20 bucks.
5. Reusable Water Bottles
This is a great, simple Father’s Day gift idea for dads that love to go out and be active. It’s important to be hydrated, especially during the hot summer months, so a reusable water bottle will go down a treat.
A great example comes from Kool8; it’s very stylish and robust and more importantly, will keep cold drinks cool and refreshing. Plus, if your dad loves coffee, he can keep it warm in this model.
There are many reusable water bottles to explore, but the one from Kool8 is one of the best on the market right now.
6. Lego Memory Jar
Your dad probably has plenty of memories and stories he has shared with you over the years. So why not remind him about how much you know with a cool Lego memory jar?
All you need to do is fill a jar up with Lego pieces and on each brick, write about a memory that means a lot to him. It could be times with you, his partner or back in his younger days.
For the finishing touch, as they do at The Seasoned Mom, add a tag on the side with the words ‘Building Memories with Dad’ – a real tear jerker but an excellent gift from the heart this Father’s Day.
7. Dad’s Custom Tie
For example, this one from Kikicomin displays all the best qualities of your dad in one place. Not only is it original and easy to think about, but your dad will also feel so proud to know that’s what you think of him.
You can choose your own design, but keep in mind that personalized gifts are the best and this idea is certainly something your dad will treasure.
