Searching for Father's Day gifts can be intimidating if you start too late or if your dad just isn't a gift person. When you search "Father's Day Gift Ideas" on Google, usually you'll stumble upon a list composed of tools, ties, and wallets. However, this Father's Day, I have a list of ideas that are sure to make your dad appreciative of your thoughtful gift!
1. A Smart Watch
Smart watches are fun gifts for the dads who love technology gifts, fitness gifts, or just need a new watch to add to their collection. There are tons of brands of smart watches out on the market that offer style as well as add practical value. A while back, I got my dad a smart watch for Father's Day and he absolutely loved it - so I definitely recommend investing in a quality smart watch!
2. George Foreman Grill
For all the grill obsessed dads out there, I recommend getting him a George Foreman grill. These are a fraction of the price of a real grill and your dad can still enjoy grilling inside when he doesn't want to face the heat during summer. There's also the advantage of not stressing about which specific grill to buy him because George Foreman grills are simple!
3. New Slippers
Slippers are the perfect "dad" gift. Even if you got him slippers last year or so, I'm sure that they're already run to the ground so there's no harm in buying him a new pair! I recommend buying him a pair that has memory foam so that the quality of the sole will last years to come and so he will have maximum comfort.
4. Special Cufflinks
For the dads who enjoy dressing up (or have to for their jobs), cufflinks are the perfect accessory to add to their outfits. Unlike some gifts that need to be repurchased, cufflinks will last a lifetime and he'll think of you every time he puts them on.
5. Matching Jewelry
If you're looking to invest in a gift this year and you have a very close relationship with your dad, I highly recommend getting matching jewelry for both of you to wear - they're timeless and will mean the world to your dad. (i.e: matching necklaces, bracelets, rings, etc.)
6. Remote Control Toys/Games
If your dad is anything like mine, then he loves remote control trucks, drones, and anything else in that realm! Many dads act like the little brother you never had and enjoy driving remote control trucks through the house, running into all the furniture. Luckily, there are plenty of toys in that realm on Amazon that won't break the bank and won't fail to make your dad feel like a child during Christmas!
7. Baked Goods
Everyone loves receiving baked goods! Baked goods are great gifts because they require you to make something, which is always super meaningful. If you're feeling particularly generous this year, you could even try making him baked goods from scratch, instead of buying pre-made dough and fillings. Although baked goods won't last more than a couple days, he'll still really appreciate the effort you put into it!
8. Quality Sunglasses
Is it just me, or does every dad keep the same pair of sunglasses until they literally fall apart, and then go buy a pair of more sunglasses that will fall apart in the next couple months? This Father's Day, spoil your dad with a quality pair of sunglasses that will last him years to come.
9. Sound System/Bar
Sound bars and systems can definitely get on the steeper end when it comes to price tags, but they're worth the investment. Sound bars are great for more than just hooking up to the TV so that he can blast them on game-day - they're also useful for when he wants to listen to music.
10. Spend the Day Together
Chances are, your dad misses getting to spend so much time with you, and just wants to spend some quality time together. Make sure you carve time out of your busy schedule to give him the gift that he really wants this Father's Day - quality time!
What gift or experience will you be getting your dad this Father's Day?
Until next time,
