Whether it is the holiday season or a birthday, we all know who the hardest person to get a gift for is; Dad. He’s always got everything and he doesn’t seem to want much of anything more. As a Dad, I am going to let you in on a little secret; we love gadgets.
Anything from tech related gadgets to sports and outdoor gadgetry, dads just can’t get enough of cool new toys related to our hobbies. If your dad likes technology, get him a cool gizmo he can tinker with; if he is into woodworking, go for any sort of new or different bit or tool that he can incorporate into his craft.
Dad will never be displeased, no matter the gift, but it’s nice to know you got him something he can use and enjoy. So, here are a few ideas to maybe point you in the right direction.
Is your dad the type who spends his weekends on a boat or a bank reeling in trophies? Then, it is a safe bet that he will enjoy any of a variety of fishing related gifts.Lures, reels, poles, boat gear, almost anything will bring a light to his eye with the thought of what he can catch.
A growing trend in gifting are monthly subscription boxes that feature changing items every month that are specialized to all sorts of things and activities, including a monthly tackle box, monthly survival boxes, and even monthly knife boxes that would all offer gadgetry that a fishing dad would love.
Maybe your dad is the guy who takes off to the course whenever he gets the chance, riding from green to green always trying to better his game. If this sounds like your old man, you can feel good about giving him a golf related item, knowing he knows it means you really know him.
Consider maybe getting this dad a new club, or even some personalized golf balls. There are also small putting greens that can be used indoors, and even a version made for putting practice on the toilet. If nothing else, he would find that pretty funny, I’m sure.
One thing dads are fairly universally known for is their odd sense of humor. I myself am guilty of some pretty lame “dad jokes”. So, if you just can’t think of anything else, you can never go wrong with some sort of gag gift.
Glow in the dark toilet paper to help him see his way to the bathroom at night, funny hats or t-shirts, age related birthday gags; they are all certain to bring Dad a chuckle. They say laughter is the best medicine, and I think it also makes for a wonderful and thoughtful gift for Dad.
For everything they do, from teaching you to ride a bike, or shoot, or any number of things your dad may have taught you, you want to show your dad just how much you appreciate him. Without your dad, you wouldn’t even be alive.
One thing is certain, though. When it comes to gifts for Dad, it really is the thought that counts. So, whatever route you choose to take when buying him a gift for any special occasion, you can feel safe that your dad will simply appreciate the fact that you thought enough of him on the occasion to get him anything at all.
