7 Ways to celebrate Dad this Father’s Day

Some dads can be so easy to shop for: bow tie, baseball tickets, or new tool box. Then there are some that require days, maybe even months of thinking and planning for a clever and unexpected Father’s Day gift. If your Dad is one of those or you just simply need some suggestions, we’ve come up with 7 ideas that will show him he’s number one on this Father’s Day.

Most Dads spend this time of year outdoors. From BBQ‘s to camping they seem to gravitate to the outdoors. This can be a good thing for gift ideas. Depending on which outdoor activity he enjoys look to buy him a new or updated item he already owns. A new grill, tent, or even lawn mower is great idea. Visit your nearest outdoors store and shop around for some items like these.

Electronics, electronics, and more electronics! Dads are for some reason fascinated with electronics. Get Dad that new TV, or new surround sound system for the living room. We found some great ideas at http://www.sharperimage.com/si/view/category/Fathers-Day-Gift-Ideas/100111?mainCatId=200014

For the Dad that loves sports. If you’re thinking about getting him something from this department, it should be a little easier. Anything with his favorite teams’ logo will most likely do just fine. Anything from a jersey to coffee mug is a nice gift. To think a little bigger season tickets or new equipment for tail gating is something that would be unexpected.

Men usually don’t shop throughout the year unless it’s a holiday or for someone else. This would be a great time to get him some new clothes that he normally would not think to purchase for himself. A new shirt (casual or dress), pants, or even shoes. Check out his closet to get a better idea of what he needs most.

Make him his favorite meal or take him to his favorite restaurant. Men love to eat and you definitely cannot go wrong if you decide to simply take him out or cook that meal that he loves.

Buy something for his car. For the Dad that has a passion for his car or cars in general, buy him something that he can use or has wanted to upgrade his car. He’ll not only love the thought, but probably be totally surprised.

As we said for Mother’s Day a personalized gift is always a great thoughtful gift and can also be a great idea for Dad also. A personalized shirt, coffee mug, or even cell phone case are a few ideas that he might enjoy.
