Hi everyone. I am Eva Stephen. I am going to share some shopping tips and gift ideas for the upcoming Father’s Day. I feel the price of the gift is not that much important but the love and gratitude you have for him is all that matters. Please also share your ideas and any interesting experiences in the comment box. 🙂
What to shop for Father’s Day
Like father, like gift
Buying gifts can be an act of mere spending, or a manifestation of true skill. If you don’t want to have your money wasted on a useless gift, you’d better do some heavy thinking and maybe even some detective work. You want to find out what the father of the family likes, wants and would love to have at this very moment.
Maybe he likes nice suits in general, but would die for a certain rock concert ticket right now. That is why you should spend a few days being very attentive to what he says and pays attention to. Observe carefully and with little luck, you’ll know exactly what you should buy him.
How about furniture for the domestic type?
Let’s think of gifts for an adventurous type.
If father/husband is more of an outdoors type of person, or someone who likes entertaining an idea that he’s always living on the edge, there is a variety of products for that tough guy. A ticket to the most dangerous roller coaster, a mean Swiss knife, a shirt with special printed letters ordered just for him that say: “Don’t mess with me if you don’t want your head messed up” – like one you can find at 8 ball. Such a gift also works if father likes fun stuff.
Of course, listing gift ideas is not a problem, but you should narrow down your choices according to your budget. If you can’t afford buying extravagant gifts, or if your father didn’t let you go out the previous night so you are a little angry with him and don’t think he deserves a very expensive gift, there are many interesting and more frugal gift options: a leather wallet, a fun tie, the latest album by his favourite band, a rare movie he’s been looking for a long time, etc.
Make him a gift and he’ll never forget it.
There’s something about handmade gifts that makes people appreciate the thought behind gift-giving even more. Some very cute and doable handmade gift ideas are shared at Tip Junkie, you can pick any of the idea for your dad. So, go ahead, make your father/husband a treasure box full of things he likes – book of jokes, Sudoku, a photo of him and mum he thought was lost, a mix CD of his favorite music, his favourite chocolate (but only one piece so he wouldn’t get fat).
The most difficult part is recognizing that one perfect gift, so without much ado, start your top priority mission now!
