Great Gift Ideas for the Man Who Has Everything – Your Dad!
Father’s Day is right around the corner, and if you’re like most people, you’re stumped on what gift you could possible get your dad, the man who has everything! So we came up with some ideas to help him get the one thing money can’t buy – time with you!
For the Dad Who Grills
We love the idea of a gift basket (even if dad doesn’t like the basket itself, maybe mom will! Bonus brownie points!) filled with everything from sauce and spices to cleaning supplies. Or how about a new spatula with a funny note attached?
Click here for some more great ideas! How awesome is the Squid Bottle Baster? Or the bacon grill rack? No matter what gift you choose, your dad is sure to love the time that you spent grilling TOGETHER.
For the Competitive Dad
If there is no professional sports team in your area (or at least not any that fit into your budget), look into getting dad tickets to a local team. There are local A, AA, and AAA MLB teams all over the country. Not to mention semi-pro leagues. Dig out your old glove and play catch in the parking lot before the game! Try and get a good picture together to frame with the tickets.
If golf is Dad’s preference, pick up a set of golf balls or gift certificate from the pro shop and set a tee time! Does Dad have a poker night with his buddies? Get him a new poker set and see if he still lets you win! Go simple or extravagant – the time he spends with you will be his favorite part!
For the Fisherman Dad
Whether dad catches his fish from the shore or a boat, Dad is always telling his “fish tales”. Why not get him some new gear and head out together! From a new rod, reel or tackle box, to a fishing chair. A fish cleaning table and fillet knife set would help him get the catch ready to serve and keep him from making a mess in the kitchen! If you’re feeling extra loving, throw in some of those grill ideas we talked about before!
If Dad likes to relax on a boat for the day, waterproof Bluetooth speakers and a solar charging station are perfect. He can relax and listen to his favorite music from his phone without having to worry that the battery is going to die! There is a wide range of options and prices, so you can get just what Dad needs without breaking the bank. (And we found a lot of waterproof speakers that float if they’re dropped in the water!) Either way, if you’re sitting on the shore, or relaxing on the water, make sure to enjoy the day with your dad!!
For the Tech Dad
Let’s face it, most dads fall into two categories – the kind that are up to date on all of the latest technology, and those who have difficulty turning on the computer and responding to an e-mail! If your dad falls into the first category, here are some techy gift ideas that you can use together!
Most people use their smartphone as their main camera, despite the less-than-professional quality. If you don’t think your dad would use a new camera, try the olloclip TELEPHOTO with Wide-Angle and Macro Lens. It clips onto your phone and turns it into a high quality camera! Go for a hike or car ride with dad to get some cool shots! When you get home, print them out with a wireless printer like this one from Polaroid!
For ANY Dad
Finally, we all know how much dads love their lawns. Why not give dad a break and call your local Lawn Doctor and get him the greenest lawn on the block!!
No matter what gift you end up getting for your dad, the one thing he can’t buy for himself is quality time with you! As long as your dad knows how much you love and appreciate him, it’ll be the perfect Father’s Day!
