Each June, families find themselves scrambling to find a father's day gift idea that shows the father in their life how special he is. Power tools, ties, and bottles of cologne have become the mainstay of father's day. This year, why not give dad a truly unique gift that shows him how special he really is.
Wine and Dine
A father does not have to be a self-proclaimed sommelier to greatly enjoy a bottle of very good wine. If you are not sure which wine is the best choice, visit a local winery or a specialty wine shop. The experts in these locations can guide you to the right bottle.
For a unique wine experience, you can have a wine label customized specifically for your dad. This is a fun way to show him how much you care, while giving him a gift that doubles as a consumable and a keepsake.
If dad does not enjoy the occasional glass of wine, think about getting him a food item that he will really love. Find if there is a particular dish from his childhood that brings back fond memories and either have it created or make it for him yourself. If there is a far away land that he has always wanted to see, bring it to him with items from that location.
The Experience of a Lifetime
Do you have an adventurous dad? Purchase a gift certificate for zip-lining, parasailing, or hot air ballooning. You can also plan a day of golf, horseback riding, biking, or any other outdoor adventure you can imagine. Has dad always wanted to be a runner? Get him started by purchasing a gift certificate to a runner's club.
Perhaps dad is more comfortable relaxing than being active. If this is the case, schedule him for a spa day or arrange for a masseuse to come into your home.
Not all families have a lot of money to spend on gifts. This does not mean that father's day must go uncelebrated. Instead, simply look for alternatives to the standard gifts a dad may enjoy. Offer to go on a picnic at a park or for a long hike. For some dads, the best gift is a simple day of rest in his own home, without distractions from the outside world or even his own family. Mom can offer to take the kids out of the house for the day while dad is free to do whatever he pleases until dinner time.
Does dad love to garden? Give him some landscaping help with inexpensive plants and garden aids. Have the kids make pavers for the yard with their hand or footprints and make the gift a yearly tradition so that the entire family can see how the brood grows over the years. Or, if dad dreads his outdoor chores, hire a local teenager to mow the lawn for a month or even the entire summer. Dad will thank you again and again.
In the end, father's day is about showing the father in your world that he is much needed and appreciated. If you truly show him how much he means to you, your heartfelt gratitude may be the greatest gift of all.
