While there are many tried and true Father’s Day gifts, here is a new spin to make them special. Once you reach a certain age, time together becomes an increasingly desired gift, and one that’s appreciated much more than a tie.
A day at the driving range together vs. Golf balls
If your dad is the type of man you would buy golf balls for, assume he already has plenty; what he doesn’t have is an arsenal of stories from that one time you went to the driving range together. In addition to loving the time spent together, dads love being able to teach their children things and pass down their wisdom. This is the perfect way to enjoy a day together and make your old man still feel needed.
Tickets to a baseball game vs. Baseball cap
If your dad is a baseball fan, he’d probably prefer to actually go to a game than simply have a hat from his favorite team. The great thing about baseball games is that they last several hours, are during warm months, and aren’t typically very expensive. It won’t matter if you’re sitting in club seats or the nose bleeds, your dad will just be happy to spend the day together.
Dinner and a Movie vs. DVD
Instead of going to Walmart and buying a random new release DVD, take your dad out for dinner and movie. Some theaters serve dinner during a movie for the ultimate viewing experience. With all the summer blockbusters releasing, there is bound to be something you would both enjoy; besides, even if it’s a terrible flick, you will have fun mocking it and walk away with a funny story.
Beer making kit vs. Case of beer
Instead of stopping at the gas station and picking up a 12-pack of your dad’s favorite beer, pick up a beer making kit. These kits can take several weeks to a month to brew your custom beverage, but that just means more time with Dad and the fun of trying the final product together.
Making the memories last
Don’t forget to take pictures while you’re out making memories with Dad. The only thing better than making those memories, is capturing them to remember for years to come. Plus, you’re already half way to an emotional Father’s Day gift for next year.
