Your father is an important figure in your life, teaching you important life lessons and supporting you in your endeavours. Father’s Day provides the ideal opportunity for you to demonstrate just how much your dad means to you and to thank him for his continued support. However, choosing a gift for someone can be difficult, as you want to be sure that they will like it whilst not breaking the bank. To help you out, here are four gift ideas for Father’s Day to show your dad you care.
1. Sports equipment
If your dad enjoys being in the great outdoors camping or playing a sport, specialist equipment related to his hobby will make great gifts for Father’s Day 2021. For instance, how about an assortment of fishing tackle for a great fishing trip, a new pair of hiking shoes for exploring the National Parks, or a tarpaulin boat cover to protect a prized leisure boat? Some sporting goods stores even offer coupons to help keep the costs down, so keep your eyes peeled for any good discounts that come your way.
2. Tickets to watch his favourite sports team
If your dad’s interest in sport lies more in watching rather than participating, you could surprise him with tickets to watch his favorite sports team. He might dream of cheering on his favourite baseball team at the ballpark or watching an exciting boxing match in Vegas. This might be an especially thoughtful idea as many sports venues cautiously begin to reopen following Covid lockdowns; however, some forward planning is required to ensure that you get the tickets before they sell out and to protect your dad.
3. His favourite drink
If your dad likes relaxing with a chilled bottle of beer or a nice glass of wine, you could consider buying him his favourite drink; for instance, a crate of his favourite lager or a fancy bottle of wine. You could make the gesture even more special by gifting him a personalised beer glass or a bottle of vintage wine from his favourite vineyard. Or, if your dad enjoys drinking liquors such as whiskey, a bottle of premier aged whiskey would make an ideal gift for him to enjoy sitting on the porch during warm summer evenings.
A watch will make a thoughtful and much-appreciated gift for your father. They are available in many styles and at many budget levels – you do not have to splash out on a Rolex for an attractive, reliable watch. If your dad is into health and fitness, a Fitbit combines standard time telling with fitness tracking facilities such as a sleep tracker, step counter, and calorie counter. Alternatively, your dad may prefer the smart and classic look of a traditional aviator watch. Consider the colour of the metal – does your dad prefer silver or gold metal or, indeed, a leather strap? You could even get the strap engraved for something extra special.
