Father’s Day is June 20th and if you haven’t gotten a gift for your dad yet what are you waiting for? Sometimes dads can be hard to buy for, especially when their interests are cars and watching TV, but they still deserve a gift.
Unlike Mother’s Day, you can’t just throw your dad flowers and a card and call it a day. They are probably tired of the multiple ‘Best Dad’ mugs or signs that you got him as a kid. So here are the top 5 gifts for your dad for Father’s Day when you don’t know what to get him.
A gift card is the perfect present for anyone. You just have to figure out where your dad likes to shop like Home Depot, Amazon, Best Buy, Pep Boys, etc. and make sure to get a significant amount that will give him a decent gift when he goes to use it. Some people might think that a gift card isn’t a sufficient gift but it is. Many people appreciate gift cards because then they can get what they want and not feel bad when they have to act like they like it.
Food / Beer
What man doesn’t like food? You could offer to take him out to dinner and pay or even buy him his favorite candy or snack. And if your dad likes to drink, a six pack of beer would go over well. Or even head to the liquor store and buy him that expensive scotch he’s had his eyes on. Food and drinks are the way to most men’s hearts so definitely pick some of that up.
Unlike women, men keep everything they need when they go out in a 2-inch-thick wallet and a lot of times, it can get run down. So, keep an eye on your dad and see if his wallet is falling apart and maybe get him a nicer one so he will have it for longer. You can get it personalized like the one in the picture above or you can just go to Macy’s or a department store and find one that you think he would like.
If you really don’t know what to get him, Ancestry DNA is always an interesting gift. He can find out about relatives he doesn’t know he has or maybe what his heritage is. Sometimes you might think you’re Italian, but you could be 85% Irish. Crazy, right? Now, these kits can be a bit expensive, so maybe if you want to chip in with your siblings or mom, go on and buy it. But otherwise, have fun!
Men love smelling good. Most of the time if you walk behind a man, you can instantly smell what cologne he is wearing. So, if your dad has a signature scent, or even if he doesn’t, cologne is always a great gift to give your dad. Go to the store and use the testers to find a new scent for him or even ask him what cologne he wears. Sometimes you can find a cologne set with body wash or shower gel with it.
