Buying a gift for dad can be a difficult task. Sure, you can pick him another “World’s Best Dad” coffee mug or a tie. But why not give him something more thoughtful? After all, he’s the guy who’s worked hard to get you where you are today. To help you choose the right gift, we’ve put together a list of ideas that we’re sure will help you turn this Father’s Day into a day he’ll remember for the rest of the year.
Here are some suggestions for every kind of father — from the bourbon aficionado to the outdoorsman, to the tech-savvy.
For the Classic Dad
Every dad loves beer, so make sure he has plenty to go around for the entire day. Buy him a crate to celebrate Father’s Day with you. Also, to make the gift more interesting, supplement the beers with his favorite snacks like a pack of peanuts, smoked almonds, cashews, and the like.
For the Sophisticated Dad
For a dad who enjoys a good sip of scotch, whiskey, or other malt-based alcohol, the best gift is a bottle of fine liquor. You can also create a gift basket adding rocking glasses, a bottle of good quality scotch and range of snacks that complement the drink. This is a simple yet elegant way of lending as much importance to taste as style.
For the Sports loving Dad
All fathers take their sports very seriously. The best way to help him stay updated with the athlete bios, upcoming games, and exclusive stories pertaining to his favorite teams is to gift him a subscription to his favorite sports magazine. If that’s not enough, you can hand over the subscription gift card with a bunch of goodies that he will love. Add trail mixes, energy drinks, dark chocolates, cashews, and much more to the basket!
Manly munchies for the Diabetic Dad
There is a wide selection of foods that diabetics can enjoy and relish. If your dad suffers from diabetes, make sure you surprise him with a basket full of sugar free goodies, including sugar free chocolates, gums, candy, jelly belly, caramel popcorn, crackers, peanuts, veggie sticks, and the like.
For the Groomed Dad
If your dad likes to put his best foot forward, whether in the house or outside, a quality shave kit will definitely impress him. Shaving essentials such as shaving cream, after shave and hair shaving brush, is perfect to keep him looking smooth during business trips as well as during vacations.
For the Dad who loves to Cook and Grill
Some dads absolutely love to cook and if your dad is one of them, then there is nothing like a basket full of grilling goodness. Bring together the best quality gourmet rubs, authentic sauces, a crate of his favorite beer and some tasty treats that he can snack on while manning the grill. Your dad will definitely appreciate this awesome gift.
