Need Father’s Day Gift Ideas?
What’s the best way to say Happy Father’s Day? Nothing is more frustrating than trying to figure out the perfect gift. And dads can be the most notoriously difficult person to buy presents for! Every Father’s Day, we get bombarded by so many stereotypical “dad” gift ideas like a new fishing rod, 6 pack of beer, or their favorite sports team jersey. That’s not to say that a special guy in your life wouldn’t enjoy another Best Dad Ever coffee mug. But there’s a big difference between a meaningful gift and one that feels like a last-minute purchase.
Happy to Be Handy
If you have a flair for arts & crafts, making your own Father’s Day gift by hand should be easy and fun! There are hundreds of cute DIY ideas for coasters, ties, cards, cookies—you name it! Together with the help of your kids, you can express appreciation for your dad, grandpa, or other father figure by putting together a homemade collage of cute family photos, showcasing your kids’ artwork, or baking him his favorite dessert from scratch. (Everyone loves a sweet treat to celebrate!)
Of course, it’s much easier to start these projects well in advance of the holiday so you can take your time. Herding the family together to collaborate or to sign a Father’s Day card always seems to take longer than originally planned, but it’s worth it to show dad that he’s an all-star in your eyes.
Sweet, Simple, & Store-Bought
When you have limited time to consider gift ideas, a store-bought present can also be an amazing way to show him he’s the #1 Dad. Not everyone has a natural aptitude for crafting and building things by hand, and there are plenty of ways to customize your store-bought gift with your dad in mind. Maybe you have a father whose interests differ from the majority? Order him that book he mentioned about the history of dance or buy a giant bag of specific-flavored jellybean candy; maybe even obtain the 34th Star Wars-themed bobblehead that he’d be thrilled to add to his collection.
Plus, ordering a gift online or buying it in-store means less chaos for the kids! Joining together with the family to make dad a special gift can be fun, but also exhausting. And at the end of the day, your loved ones might feel left out. So, when in doubt, go online and order dad some special Father’s Day cookies!
No matter if you and the kids choose to bake some personalized cookies or have a dad-joke-themed cookie bouquet delivered to your door, your dad will feel the love this Father’s Day. And for all the dads, grandpas, uncles, in-laws, and other family members that are acting fathers and role models in one way or another, we just want to say… you’re the best.
Happy Father’s Day!
