Don’t let this Father’s Day pass you by…OWN IT. I am really grateful for my dad and for all he has done for me and my family, but not going to lie, sometimes it is really hard to figure out a gift to give him. Here are a few ideas that myself and the WSP team have thought of to help you tackle Father’s Day, in the best way possible.
- Cologne: A good cologne is something that a dad might not always want to splurge on himself. They always make a great gift and even if he doesn’t use it, it can sit on the bathroom counter and look sophisticated and luxurious.
- Travel bag: DITCH THE ZIPLOC BAG. If your father figure or significant other travels a lot for work or just travels for fun and doesn’t have a sturdy travel bag…read no more-this is the perfect gift. Etsy is a great place to look for these and you can even get them customized with a message or his initials. Find this bag and others at ardenandgold.com!
- Car Emergency Kit: This is a more practical gift, but very useful. Especially if your dad just got a new car this is a great gift. Show your dad you love him by keeping him prepared for whatever emergency situation might happen!
- ‘Dad’ Merch: It’s kind of cliché, but dad’s love dad merch that shows the world they are a dad. You can go on Amazon and get ‘World’s best dad’ mugs, shirts, hats, you name it. While these gifts are comical, your father figure will flaunt them with pride, in the most dad fashion ever.
- Soap: It’s the gift that keeps on giving…literally. Keeping your dad smelling great if a gift to everyone as well as to him. It always feels good to be pampered, and sometimes it just takes a simple, manly, luxurious bar of soap to do the trick.
- Food: they always say a way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. While I’m not sure if this is 100% accurate, putting together a basket of favorite treats and snacks is always a great gift. It will show how much you care and put thought into which goodies to pick out, and I mean—who doesn’t like snacks! Arrange them in a cute basket for extra brownie points.
- Tickets: Is there a concert, sporting event, or lecture that you know your dad/significant other would enjoy? Consider splurging on some tickets to treat him later in the year! Dad’s love to spend quality time with the people they love and choosing an event that HE would enjoy is thoughtful and fun! Plus, gifts that come later than the original holiday are always something to look forward to.
- A Trip: Even if this is just a day trip to a local brewery or a weekend camping trip, quality time is key. You don’t have to plan anything extravagant, just a little something to show that you put some thought and effort into a gift and that you care about your father.
- Handwritten letters: It’s always great to hear how somebody really feels about you, and a letter is a perfect way to do that. It’s something they can hang on to and read on a bad day and just soak in all the love.
- Socks: Yes, it’s the typical ‘adult’ gift. But honestly, who doesn’t need socks! Splurge on a fun print or soft fabric and make your dad’s life a little bit nicer. Plus, every time he puts them on, he will think of you! It’s a win-win. Find the socks below and so many others at bananarepublic.com!!!
