How to pick the perfect personalized gift for Dad
By Amy Wright | Jul 30, 2020
He’s your superhero. He has the ability to cheer you up with the worst Dad jokes, he has an uncanny way of showing you some practical (or sometimes impractical) life hacks and he always tries his best to give you some fatherly advice. Your Dad is definitely one in a million and you love that about him. Yet, this also makes it challenging when it comes to finding him the perfect Father’s Day gift. Would he like a homemade dinner or prefer a custom family canvas print? That depends. Since every Dad has his own unique quirks, there is no one-size-fits-all Dad gift. Here are some awesome tricks on how you can pick the perfect personalized gift for your Dad.
What’s his favourite hobby?
A great way to start is by thinking about what your poppa likes to do in his spare time. Does he enjoy golfing with some friends, is he always up for a camping adventure or does he prefer hanging out at home watching movies? For example, if he’s a golf guy, you could take him out to the driving range, play 18 holes together (or have fun driving around in the cart) or even go mini-putting together if that’s more your speed. An activity together doing what Dad loves will surely bring a smile to his face.
You could also choose a personalized gift related to that hobby such as a name embroidered golf bag, a goofy golf hat or a customized framed print of a throwback of you two at the golf course together. Whatever his interests may be, the most important thing you can give your Dad on Father’s Day is spending quality time together.
What’s an incredible memory you shared?
Nothing can compare to a memory you and your Dad have shared together. By choosing a gift that relates back to that amazing time, you will definitely tug on his heartstrings. Think of that time you went on a fun weekend camping getaway, the first time he taught you how to ride a bike or your first experience travelling together. You can preserve that special memory you shared with Dad by printing that image on a canvas print. This personalized wall art will truly be a gift like no other and remind him of the amazing things you’ve experienced together.
What’s his personality type?
If he’s the sporty type, he might enjoy tickets to his favorite sporting event or a customized panoramic photo print of his favorite sports team.
If he’s outgoing, you could try something new together. Go on an adventure, hike that mountain, try a cooking class or even go bungee jumping, perhaps?
If he’s the sentimental type, you’ll need to get him something that hits him in the feels. A customized family canvas print or a collage print of your favorite photos together may bring a tear to his eye.
What’s his party style?
Does he prefer simple or over the top? You want to throw the old man the type of Father’s Day celebration he’ll actually enjoy. It’s great to go above and beyond for pop, but if that’s not his style, then you may want to stick to something more low key. He’d probably prefer an intimate family gathering, one-on-one quality time together doing an activity he loves or going to his favorite restaurant.
On the other hand, if he enjoys all the bells and whistles, here’s your chance to get a little wild. Decorate with all of his favorite colors, create a fun theme of his favorite movie, get some of his favorite snacks and invite all the peeps he cares about to join the festivities.
He might not need another pair of socks again this year. The best way to add a little je ne sais quoi to your Father’s Day gift this year is by getting him something personalized. To help you decide on what he’d truly love is by thinking of his interests, his personality type and your memories together. With a personalized Father’s Day gift from the heart, you’re sure to knock his socks off.
