Father’s Day is that special day for the man you call dad or grandpa. Although handmade cards, his favorite homemade food and heartfelt messages are great ideas for this special day, there are a wide variety of gifts you can choose from to surprise him and give him something special on Father’s Day.
Men, our husband and our father in general, tend to be busy and DIY-inclined people. In addition to managing their daily jobs and supporting the family, many of them also enjoy doing home repairs and DIY projects at home or inside their caves.
With this in mind, a gift card from Home Depot, Lowe’s or your favorite hardware store is one of the best options you can choose for an urgent gift for your special man on Father’s Day or any other occasion. Men generally see these places as their “toy store”. Any typical dad would typically make a dozen trips to the hardware store in a week and never get tired of doing it or even think about his next trip. Not only will he appreciate the gift, but he could end up doing that repair or setting up the DIY swing set before the weekend.
Electronics are also great options to consider when shopping for gifts for that special guy. Think of digital cameras, widescreen televisions, DVD players, or laptops. It all depends on what they are passionate about. If you like to watch movies, DVD players or a big TV, it would be a great surprise. If you love the outdoors and enjoy photography, a fancy new digital camera would do the job. However, these gifts can be a bit pricey, so be sure to save and plan ahead so you can get one for your favorite man on Father’s Day.
Personalized gifts are also a great idea when giving a gift to the guy who seems to have it all. Frames, plaques or figurines can be purchased especially with Father’s Day in mind. You can also buy personalized pens. Mugs and t-shirts with special photos and special messages to show your appreciation.
Gift certificates to a hobby they enjoy or a specialty store they like to visit are also a good option for Father’s Day gifts. If they like to play golf, drink wine or work with wood, you can practically find a specialized gift shop for that. Get her a gift certificate for an item she really likes or needs.
