Father’s Day Ideas
Unless you are a little kid who can get away with making a makeshift tie or piece of artwork, finding gifts for your father can be difficult.
Notice how I said “can be difficult”? That’s because A) Not all father’s are difficult. If I ever become a dad my kid will have no shortage
of ideas for gifts. Also, B) I said “can be difficult” because there are some creative avenues to getting a gift for your dad. Here are a
few of my suggestions both as a writer and as a son for gifts on Father’s Day.
1) Poo-Pourri: This is for the father’s who play into the male stereotype of being obsessed with bodily functions. This spray is used to
eliminate bad smells from an especially foul bathroom trip. This is a gift for both the father and the rest of the household. It’s also a
great way to talk to your father about his bathroom habits. This gift could also be known as giving your dad a hint.
2) Custom Writing Featuring Your Dad: As your father always had a dream of playing professional baseball? Is he in touch with his emotions
and appreciative of poetry? Then writing your father a story or poem is the path for you. You can even make it more personal if you have a
working knowledge of Photoshop or any sort of photo editing software and put your father into the role your creating for him.
3) Personal video: Whether you’re an amateur with a smartphone or a professional videographer, a great way to show dad you love him this
Father’s Day is with a personal video. Whether that’s a slideshow of pictures with some heartwarming music, a sketch or music video, or
maybe it’s a compilation of your dad’s favorite viral videos all put together to make him laugh, a personal videos shows the effort you
put into his gift and the amount of care you have for him.
4) A Feast for a King: Sometimes the best way to a father’s heart is through his stomach. What better way to show dad you care than with a
collection of food that makes him happiest. Whether its home cooked meals or a day out at his favorite restaurant, sometimes a simple meal
can speak volumes.
There you have it. Buying gifts can be quite tricky. Yet if all these ideas fail on your father, then I suggest gift cards. If he’s going to
be stubborn, let him choose his own gift. To all the dads out there, Happy Father’s Day!
