Buying The Perfect Gift This Fathers Day
With fathers day fast approaching, if you’re looking for a last minute gift then look no further than this article. Stepping aside from a 6 pack of beers and socks, what unique gifts can you give to your Father this Fathers day to win their respect?
In this article we wanted to give you a few tips for choosing the right gift, but also highlight some of our favourite gifts for this year.
Being a Father isn’t easy, and if your Father is someone who’s helped you and protected you then it’s important that you show him just how much he means to you. Sure, a ‘day’ shouldn’t be the only time you do so but let this day be all about him and how much he means to you.
“My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person, he believed in me.”
Choosing the best gift for the best Father might seem like a tough ask, but here’s what we recommend.
Make It Personal
It’s very easy for us to follow the herd, and choose a Fathers day gift thats general. For example, a pack of socks, alcohol, some chocolate or even a brand new beer glass. But why not make it personal?
As men, we still appreciate thought going into the gifts bought for us. It shows that time and effort has been applied when choosing the right gift. So instead of running to the local supermarket a day before and buying what they have on offer, instead make it personal.
Think about their favourite things to do, their interests that only you and your family know about, think about the experiences you’ve had together, and what would truly make them happy.
The more personal the gift, the more meaningful (and memorable) it is.
Here’s an example, if your Father loved magic in the day these stylish playing cards could be the perfect gift for him. If your Father’s a lover of shoes, try the shoe shine kit.
Keep It Small
As men, we always think that size matters, but when it comes to gift buying sometimes smaller is better. Small packages can often create the biggest surprises, and it also helps save time when wrapping the gift for them!
Also the smaller the gift, the easier it is to carry. So smaller gifts such as cardholders and even a copper flask might look small to open, but it’s something they’ll use often.
Is It Something They’ll Use?
Finally, think about buying them a gift that they’ll use often. Something they’ll carry with them daily or something that will benefit their day. How many times have you bought a present for your Father for them to hoard it away or not use it after a few weeks?
As we get older we tend to want less, but we always want something that were going to be able to use daily.
Stylish key rings, notepads and bags are examples of something they’ll use and benefit from.
Happy Fathers Day
So there we have it, a few tips to help you buy the perfect Fathers day gift and also a few personal recommendations. What will you be buying this year?
