On June 15th, families everywhere will be celebrating Dear Old Dad! Have you thought about what you’re getting him this year? It’s important to find a gift that shows how much you appreciate him teaching you how to change a flat tire and stomping on all those spiders when you were little. The key to finding the perfect gift is matching it to your Dad’s personality and hobbies. We’ve come up with a gift guide for every kind of Dad to help you out!
Is he an aspiring golf pro? Help your dad up his golf game by giving him new gear. New golf balls, gloves, and tees are never a bad idea. If you’re looking for something a little more extravagant, look into the new golf swing analyzers. These devices are attached to either a golf club or a golf glove that communicates to a smartphone app. The app then analyzes the swing and gives feedback and tips for improvement.
Does he consider himself a beer connoisseur? A beer of the month subscription is the perfect gift. A monthly subscription to anything is truly a gift that keeps on giving for an entire year. Add the fact that it’s a monthly beer subscription and you’ve hit a double! There are plenty of beer clubs that you can sign him up for online. Try checking out either Gourmet Monthly Clubs or Craft Beer Club.
Do you have a grill master for a dad? Consider getting him a digital meat thermometer or a set of stainless steel grilling tools. Summer is the perfect time to replace grilling supplies and put them to immediate use. After all, the 4th of July is just around the corner!
If your Dad is a fit-fanatic, then a personal fitness tracker would make a great gift. These little devices help their owners reach health and fitness goals by tracking activity levels, sleep, and calories burned. Bottom line – men love their gadgets. A few favorites are the Fitbit, Nike+ FuelBand, or the Jawbone UP. Another great idea is a nice water bottle to take on a run or to the gym. A fan favorite is the Camelbak.
Do you typically find your dad wrapped up in another home improvement project? A gift fit for a handy man (or a want-to-be handy man) will hit the nail on the head. He most likely already has a tool kit, but it probably needs an upgrade. A wireless screwdriver can make the majority of his household projects painless and efficient. If you’re not sure what other items might help him with unforeseeable projects, stick with a gift card to your closest home improvement store.
