Believe it or not, not all fathers love fishing and golf. Plus, most dads probably have more than enough neckties collecting dust in the closet. Here are some unique gift ideas to make the upcoming Father’s Day one your dad will surely remember.
Sign Up For a Race
Is your dad an athlete? If so, sign the whole family up for a local 5k run/walk. This is a perfect opportunity for the entire family to spend some quality time together doing a healthy activity. If your family isn’t exactly in running shape, no worries. Most races welcome walkers.
Many 5k races benefits local charities. Register for a race that supports a cause your dad believes in. If your family prefers something a bit more extreme, obstacle races are becoming increasingly popular. Take your dad out for lunch at his favorite restaurant afterwards.
Bacon Peanut Brittle
Nothing says “manly” quite like bacon! Order your father some “Sir Francis Bacon” peanut brittle to satisfy his sweet tooth. This bacon peanut brittle was a huge hit with my dad when I sent him a box for Father’s Day last year.
Bacon peanut brittle is the perfect combination of sweet and savory. Plus, it is totally unique! Order it in three different flavors: original, chocolate covered, and toffee. If you’re lucky, maybe your dad will share a bite.
Pampering in general is generally associated with women. There is absolutely no reason though why fathers can’t enjoy a nice Father’s Day massage.
Groupon almost always has great deals on massages. I have always had great experiences with Massage Envy as well. Upgrade your father’s experience by requesting that the massage therapist use hot stones or soothing aromatherapy (be prepared to pay a little more).
Your dad may be reluctant to go for his massage at first, but once the stress is melting off of his shoulders, he’ll be eternally grateful.
For a gift that truly keeps on giving, sign your dad up for a year of Birchbox. Yes, they do make Birchbox for men! Your father will receive a box full of grooming goodies every month. He can take a survey on the Birchbox website so that his monthly boxes will be more tailored to his lifestyle.
Your dad will get to try out the hottest new men’s grooming items without having to splurge on buying them. Gifting Birchbox is a great way to remind your dad that you care about him all year, and not just on Father’s Day.
