Father’s day happens on different dates around the world some in some places like Spain it happens in March as opposed to the dates in the UK and US – in June. Some of us have fathers and some of us have father figures. We all look for ways of appreciating them by giving them gifts that can make them feel happy for being part of our lives. You might have been trying too hard to get your father a nice gift each year so here are some suggestions.
Well, this sounds way expensive but it isn’t all that expensive if you think about it. First, you’ve always heard of places he says he has always wanted to visit or by just the kind of programs he watches on TV often. You can save up some cash over a year and surprise him with an all-expenses-paid trip(not necessarily outside your country) or just do a road trip to one of the places that you think he’ll like – say a game park trip or a beachfront hotel stay for the fathers’ day weekend stay.
Upgrade his Tech
Help them in understanding the basics of using the tech in relation to the previous. It could be a new TV so help them set it up. That way they can learn to explore and learn the rest as time goes. Fathers have the habit of staying behind on matters tech because they feel comfortable with the kind of tech they are using at that moment. Usually, the kind of tech they use could be outdated and already been through so many repairs that it no longer works at it should. This is the case for home electronics which they don’t replace often or old phone. Get them new tech throw out the old ones or sell on eBay for some little money.
Personalize their gifts
If your dad likes his whiskey you can go ahead and have a bottle engraved with his name – there are companies that can even customize the label appropriately. Do you see how couples on the internet wear personalized t-shirts and hoodies depicting their love for each other? Well, you can go out and get your father a hoodie with a printing “World’s Best Dad!” or a set of mugs for him so he can share with his friends.
Treat his car!
Yes, treat his car! Fathers love their cars – well if he owns one he loves it. Have his car serviced that shouldn’t be expensive and if it is, it will be worth it in the long run!
How about you give him something that helps keep memories in pictures? Well yes, you can! Remember the old photos that you can’t digitize because they are way too bad or too low quality to digitize? A camera as a father’s day gift could go a long way in helping your father keep some memories of both himself and the family that could last for generations. This is one of the most priceless memories for a person that has been in your life and taking care of you.
This can’t be any of those 'just pick and go' jackets but a unique jacket – the one that can keep him warm during cold evenings and mornings. You can get him one of those wind resistant jackets that are durable and preferably a dull color.
Hangout with him with his ‘boys’
Maybe your father is a people’s guy so you can go have lunch with his other friends. This could sound awkward if you aren’t that close to your father or you are too young but you can be in his day spend it with him and his friends buy them some lunch or dinner.
You can also decide to do some charity on this day because why not. You can feed the homeless, share some of the clothes you don’t wear with them among other activities.
With all these ideas you can decide on what to give your dad this year and always remember to keep it within your means because the goal is to make him feel special not to overspend and leave yourself in debt.
