Father’s Day is right around the corner and that means it’s time to start thinking about what to get for that special guy. Dad deserves much more than just another tie, but finding the right thing is much more complicated than it might seem. These are some tips on what the dad in your life could actually use and will definitely appreciate:
Breakfast in Bed
Breakfast in bed isn’t just for moms. For one, it’s a meal thoroughly enjoyed by just about everyone. Also, who doesn’t love to wake up to the smell of nice crispy bacon? There are some great ideas for a Father’s Day breakfast here with classics like waffles, bacon and french toast, along with spicy and exotic fare like a delicious-looking chorizo breakfast hash.
Some Summer Clothes
If there’s one thing men generally aren’t too keen on, it’s having to go shopping for clothes. This is an act that is usually done purely out of necessity with more thought given to function rather than fashion. That’s why some clothes are never a bad gift for a dad, as long as it isn’t yet another tie. There’s a good chance that he could probably use a nice shirt or two, or maybe a new pair of shorts for summer. You know he doesn’t want to have to trek out to the department store to buy them for himself. If you need some ideas, there are some great ones at this site, which covers everything from sport shirts to polos. Either is a great way to have your father outfitted for the heat in no time.
Parenting is hard work and on his day off, dad deserves a hard-earned drink. So why not make sure that well-deserved drink is a nice one? A fine bottle of scotch is a thoughtful gift that will be both treasured and enjoyed. And it doesn’t even necessarily have to be a bottle itself. This list of “the best boozy father’s day gifts” has some suggestions for nice whiskeys as well as more affordable glassware that he’ll be able to appreciate for much longer. Alternatively, whiskey stones or even spherical ice molds are a fun way to say thank you and help him appreciate his after-work pick-me-up even more.
More than anything else though, dads (just like moms) would love to hear how much you appreciate them. The gift that will mean the most is the one that you put the most thought into. Whether it’s a homemade card or a day in the park with the family, chances are your dad will be touched by a simple thanks and knowing you were thinking about him.
