If you’ve been fortunate enough to have an awesome Dad, Father’s Day is probably a special time for you and your family. Take a trip to the local department store and you will see crowds of people searching for the ideal gift. One way to insure that you purchase a gift he will love is to make a selection based on his interest or profession. Is Dad a construction professional? If so, these Father’s Day gift ideas might be just what he wants!
Water coolers: One thing every construction guy needs is a water cooler. Buy him a sturdy water cooler complete with cups. You can find the standard orange variety at Home Depot but you can jazz up your gift by removing the lid and filling it with snacks or packets of Gatorade.
Laser levels: Lasers just get better and better, don’t they? What guy doesn’t love a good laser? Spring for a laser beam projector that he can use with a tripod on his job sites. This Father’s Day gift will be appreciate for years to come.
Construction software: Consider buying some handy software for your Dad’s construction business like BuilderTrend or PENTA. He can schedule construction projects, make purchase orders, post photos and manage leads. He can also request payments for his work with just a click of the mouth.
Weather radio: When he’s on the job, he may not know when bad weather is approaching. A weather radio will give him a “heads up” when storms are approaching. Even if the radio is turned off, it will automatically come on when an alert is issued. This is the ideal Father’s Day present.
Clothing gifts: Don’t give Dad a tie! Give him a clothing gift that has a funny saying or relates to the construction field in some way. Buy an apron that says, “Building a Better Burger” or “Kiss the Construction Worker!” You can find dozens of novelty shirts that are suitable. Look for shirts with slogans like, “If I Build It, They Will Come” or “Keep Calm and Love the Construction Worker.”
Use your creativity! You’ll find the perfect gift for you favorite construction professional–Dad!
