Unique Father’s Day gift ideas from a Dad

gifts for dad

Strangely, I see Father’s Day as a distinctly ‘grown up’ holiday much like Mother’s Day. Sure, it is a great photo ‘op for the kids to pile on the bed and watch him drink that bad coffee they made and eat the best darn burnt toast he’s ever experienced, but for adults -especially those who are parents themselves- it is a chance to meditate on the dads in their life. And by dad, I mean the guy who was there for them. Family tends to be complicated so I realize that guy may be Dad or an Uncle, a Grandfather, a Step Father or just some close to the family. So whoever was that father-figure in their life, now is the time to recognize their efforts.

Father’s Day is typified by a card and a gift, the real challenge is to find something or do something that reaches beyond cliche and says, “I saw this gift and I know you will love it.” This is a tall order, I know, but it is the goal. Parents are very elusive when it comes to gifts, this we know. So whether it’s a practical gift or an artful one, get him something that speaks to him, thank him for trying to put his best foot forward and give the guy a hug.
