DADS – We love them, we really do. One endearing fact about dads is that they are relatively easy to please. They don’t usually tell us to buy them stuff, and they rarely collect anything. Ask dad if there’s something he wants, and he’ll tell you he’s good because he already has what he needs. He’ll either say save your money, or just get something for yourself. The irony is that, in general – dads aren’t picky with gifts, but they are hard to shop for.
When it comes to gifting dads, the thought you need to put into it is more challenging than it seems. “Do I get this because I think he’ll like it?”, or “Will I get him something useful, instead?”. Speaking from personal experience, buying gifts for dad takes time because we want to get them something that they will absolutely love. Knowing how dads treasure gifts, they will surely cherish what you give them and use those for a long time.
Father’s Day is just around the corner. If you still haven’t picked what you’re going to get for your dad, we’ve rounded up 5 useful and practical gift ideas that your dad will appreciate.
Whether it’s eyeglasses or sunglasses, eyewear is a good gift option especially if your dad can’t be without his own pair. You can get this off the shelf, or you can order online. Add a card with a short message that says “Use new eyeglasses to read my message 😊” to make him smile.
Dads will always have an occasion to use a new pair of kicks for. Get him a handsome pair of new leather shoes for formal occasions or buy him new sneakers for casual days. It could come in his favorite color, or you could buy from his favorite brand. Toss in a new pair of socks too and you’re good to go.
Now this is a gift idea that you probably don’t always see in the list of best gift options for dad, but this one’s what’s most important. Knowing how unpredictable our times are, having an emergency health card like Medicare’s ER Guard or ER Guard Plus gives us a sense of relief knowing dad has medical insurance coverage in case of emergencies. Conveniently, you can also get this at any M Lhuillier branch in the country. Fun fact: you’ll be surprised at how affordable protecting dad is.
Since dads aren’t big on accessories, and watches (and their wedding ring), are usually the only accessories they always wear, a statement watch is a great gift idea. A smart watch is perfect for hip and sporty dads, while analog watches will look nice on conventional dads. The nice thing about this is you can order a piece where you can have an engraving added for a more personal touch.
If dad’s always on the road, a car emergency kit or a digital car air pump may come in handy. If he likes to keep the auto clean, you can get him a car vacuum cleaner as well.
At the end of the day, the best gift you can give dad is time. Spend as much time as you can with your parents and always let them know how much you love them and care for them.
