Are you out of ideas when it comes to getting a gift for the special man in your life on Father’s Day? Or perhaps you would like to try and get something other than the stereotypical card or other generic gift that is given time and time again. Here are 10 great gift ideas for the fathers in your life!
Tool “Do Everything” Knife
One thing that makes a great practical gift for any father is a pocket knife with lots of tools sometimes also referred to as a “Tool Do Everything Knife.” These knives are great because they include different useful everyday tools like screwdrivers, nail file, knife, corkscrew, bottle opener, scissors, etc. You can get a fairly inexpensive one, or go all out and get it personalized or engraved.
Another great idea for a Father’s Day gift is a beer bucket. There are many different stores and websites that offer high quality beer buckets made out of galvanized steel. Many will even personalize the bucket. Or you can of course get creative and find or make your own bucket and just fill it up with some ice and that special guy’s favorite six pack of beer. Beer buckets make a wonderful gift because they can be used again as a toting tool later for those backyard barbeques or sporting events.
Pocket Watch or Wrist Watch
If you are tired of getting the men in your life the same old gift every year, then why not try to opt for something more practical yet thoughtful? A fancy or personalized pocket watch or wrist watch make perfect gifts for dad.
Wallet or Money Clip
What man can’t use a new wallet or money clip to help stay more organized? Engraved wallets or money clips are even better, because they are more sentimental and show dad that you put a lot of thought into the gift.
Tool sets make a wonderful Father’s Day gift. What better way to show dad or your significant other that you appreciate all those times he’s fixed your car or your leaky sink faucet, then to reward him with some brand new state of the art tools?
If you are still struggling to find the perfect Father’s Day gift, then gift cards always make a great choice, especially for those men who are hard to shop for, or if you need a last minute gift idea. Try getting a gift card for their favorite restaurant or store. Gift cards to places like Lowes, Sears, or Home Depot might also be ideal. Does the man you are shopping for like to work on cars? You might try getting him a gift card to Auto Zone or you can even go a step further and pre-pay for an oil change or a tire alignment at the local auto store where he gets his car work done.
Another great gift idea is to subscribe your father or husband up for a magazine that you know or think he will enjoy. Try to find a magazine that matches his hobbies. If he likes to garden you might consider a gardening magazine. If he loves cars or motorcycles you might consider a magazine that pertains to that. Does he enjoy woodworking? Fishing? Golf? Working out? There are all kinds of magazines to choose from, and whats great is he won’t have to pay for the subscription unless he decides to renew it. Or even better? You can kill two birds with one stone and renew it for him as a gift for another upcoming holiday. Cha-ching! What a marvelous idea!
Does your husband or father in law need a new razor? How about investing in a shaving kit? Or you can even include something like an engraved razor case or shaving brush. Need some ideas on the different kinds of shaving kits that are available? The Art Of Shaving has some great kits starting out at $25 and climbing in price to more elaborate and fancy kits in the $400+ range. Some kits even include different scented essential oils and aftershave.
Is there a movie that you recently saw that you think dad might also enjoy? Or maybe you know what his favorite movie is but are certain that he doesn’t own a copy of it at home. DVDS or blu-rays make a great Father’s Day gift. You can even get more creative with it and make a movie bucket with some popcorn or a few of his other favorite snacks. A movie bucket with a few good movies, a gift card to the movies, and some chips, candy, and beer makes the perfect gift for dad!
Tickets To A Concert or Sporting Event
Does your father have a favorite band, singer, or sport’s team? Why not try to find tickets to a concert or sporting event and include them in a thoughtful Father’s Day card?
