It is hard buying a gift for your dad and it becomes harder when the occasion is special, like his birthday or promotion or celebrating Father’s Day. June 18, 2017 (Sunday) is that special day when all across the country people celebrate and honor their father. And by the way, Father’s Day is also the occasion to honor a fatherly figure in your life.
While dads bask in the adulation, we the children are faced with the dilemma of giving the perfect gift to our superhero. It is easier for moms as you can gift the whole world to her but dads are more picky and perhaps more practical. So the gift has to be special and useful.
So how do we determine the best gift for our dads?
- Budget: Showing your appreciation need not be expensive as a simple gift would suffice because it is the thought that counts. Be realistic about the budget and do not overspend.
- Dad’s personality: What would your father prefer? Giving him a gift that you think is trendy might not be useful to him. Think in terms of what will be useful to him at his job, or to follow a hobby, or what does he need?
- Last minute gifts: If you waited till the last minute to buy a gift for your father then you can think in terms of gym memberships, or coupons or gift cards.
Father’s day 2017 gift ideas
Grooming kit: Dad’s usually do not pay too much attention to their looks and hence a grooming kit makes the best gift. If your dad has a mustache or a beard then a kit with beard oil, engraved branded shaving razor and hair wax will help his cause.
Men and technology: Men love their gadgets and hence gifting them the latest gizmos makes sense. You can buy him the latest smartphone, or a smart watch. Portable speakers are a good gift if he loves music. You can go with brands such as JBL or Bose, or whatever fits your budget. If you are concerned about his health than a fitness band would be beneficial.
Movies: Download his favorite movies and copy it to his tab or phone. You can also make a collection of songs he likes.
Clothes: Most dads will have their set of clothes but you can gift him clothes that he can wear while jogging or doing exercises. Nice and trendy tracks and T-shirts will actually motivate him to get out and work out.
