The most thoughtful Father's Day gift ideas
By Amy Wright | Jan 17, 2018
Father’s Day is about honoring the special men in your life. Whether you call him dad, pops, papa, grandpa or uncle, he deserves a thoughtful gift that will make him feel extra special, and maybe even shed a tear. Whether it’s a perfectly timed dad joke or one of those embarrassing moments that made you smirk and say “Daaaaaad”, you’ve created some unforgettable memories you can thank him for.
This Father’s Day ditch the “#1 Dad mug” and give him a thoughtful gift that’s truly from the heart. Here are ways to express your gratitude and appreciation for all the life lessons he’s taught you and everything he’s done for you along the way.
Personalized canvas print
Throughout the years, you and Dad have spent so much time together building memories you’ll treasure forever. Create a canvas print of one of your favorite memories together to remind him of the special relationship you share. A canvas photo print will be sure to bring a smile to his face and reflect on that cherished moment every time he walks by it.
Try his favorite hobby
Life can get pretty hectic for Dads and they often put their favorite hobbies on the backburner. This Father’s Day, why not try out his favorite hobby with him. Whether it’s fishing, playing pool, playing an instrument, woodworking, gardening or working on old cars, Dad is sure to be happy doing the thing he loves, with someone he loves. You could even snap a couple of pictures of you both doing that activity and create a framed print for his birthday or special occasion.
Help out with projects around the house
Dad always has some sort of project on the go. Offer to help him with the backyard deck he’s working on or the new bench he’s making for the garden. If your dad loves spending time making things for the family, this is the perfect way to help dad out and get some great bonding time in.
Organize a sports day
If you’ve got a Dad who enjoys sports, it’s a given that he’ll enjoy anything sports related. Make a day of it and bring him to watch his favorite sports team play or grab a glove like old times and head outside for a fun-filled afternoon enjoying each other's company.
Throwing a party for your rad Dad will be a definite win, but adding a cook-off competition of your Dad’s favorite meal will be unforgettable. Let Dad kick up his feet, enjoy a beverage and be the judge that chooses the winner during the cook-off.
