Great Father’s Day Gift Ideas
Category : Gifts
With Father’s Day just around the corner, many Dads are faced with the possibility of receiving the traditional gift of a neck tie or handkerchief. Although it is true that it is the thought that counts, we can put a little more thought into picking a gift from a list of unique Father’s Day gift ideas. Here are a few options to make your Father’s Day gifts stand out a little more this year, and show Dad the sentiment a great Father’s Day gift can provide.
Anyone can give a tie as a Father’s Day gift. One of the easiest ways to give a unique Father’s Day gift would be to have his gift personalized. Personalized gifts can include anything from picture frames to beer steins, and a jersey from your Dad’s favorite sport team to something as easy as a T-shirt.
If you are going to buy your Father’s Day gift over the Internet, be sure to order early and allow time for personalizing and shipping. Many of these online shops can help you with personalized messages, and give you some ideas for your engraving. Novelty gifts, like putting your Dad on the cover of a magazine, make great personalized gifts too.
Instead of giving dad a bottle of his favorite cologne this year, why not have a signature scent made up especially for him? Many of today’s finer cologne shops now offer a service of blending scents to create your own cologne for Dad.
Creating a custom cologne is like blending a wine, you don’t need a lot of different scents to make a good blend. In fact, two or three are probably all you will need. A gift like that will certainly show Dad how much effort you put into his Father’s Day gift.
If your Father loves gourmet dining, you might consider having a professional chef come to your father’s home and cook him his favorite mealfor dinner on Father’s Day. If your father is a big steak eater you will need to go out and purchase the best grade steak that you can find. Prime steak is the best, but it’s also the most expensive. However, a juicy prime steak to a steak lover is a gift they will love to experience, and not likely buy for themselves.
If you do hire a chef, it is best to be able to give the chef a complete menu. Include appetizers, soups or salad, entrees, side dishes, vegetables, and desserts. Some chefs prefer to do the shopping themselves, so they can buy the best and freshest ingredients. A less expensive option would be to send your Dad prepared meals from a chef prepared meal delivery service.
Is your Father a sports fan? Many sports, like golf, for example, have disposable equipment that always needs to be replaced. Personalized golf balls is a great example. If he plays tennis, a gross of tennis balls will always come in handy. Just be careful to buy the same exact equipment your dad uses and not load him up with a brand he doesn’t care for. Sports clothes is another good idea for this type of Dad.
If Dad likes to drink wine, one of the most popular online trends these days are the wine clubs. You can start your Father out with a couple of bottles and let him experience a new wine every month. It is a great Father’s Day gift idea that reminds your Father how much you love him every month! Similar monthly clubs are available for gourmet coffee, tea, and beer too. It’s a gift that gives all year.
Yes, it can be difficult to pick out the most perfect Father’s Day gifts. Chances are, you have known your father all your life, and you have a general idea as to what he likes, and what he does not like. If he truly has everything, go with a gift card and let him choose his own gifts.
Whatever you decide to give, be certain to write a little card that tells Dad exactly how much you love and appreciate him. That is a gift that even the hard-to-shop-for Dad will cherish.
