As a fairly new father, I’m looking forward to spending time with my daughter on Father’s Day and having the pleasure of her company. A Father’s Day gift is the last thing on my mind since things like walking, driving, and income earning aren’t on her radar. So, why am I writing about Father’s Day gifts? It’s to steer you away from giving the gift that you might usually get for your dad. Forget about getting another tie, golf shirt, or power tool. Why not take your dad out to dinner? If your dad is anything like mine, he never lets me pay, and you can take advantage of Father’s Day by insisting that he allow you to pick up the bill.
Always consider a consumable rather than adding to his tie collection. If he is a golfer, buy a few rounds of golf for him. Better yet, if you golf too this is a great opportunity for you to spend some time with him and you can cover the greens fees. Maybe go to a course he’s never been to or that you know he loves.
Take him out to the ballgame. What better way to spend a Father’s Day then to take in the sights, sounds, and tastes of the ballpark? Whether it is a Major League Baseball game or a local minor league park there aren’t many more perfect venues to kick back with dad.
Does anyone have any unique gift ideas for Father’s Day? Feel free to share them in the comments.
