Father’s Day is around the corner, so it’s time to think about gift buying once again. Some dads can be hard to shop for and if you’re a dad yourself, you may be looking for the perfect way to drop a sneaky hint! So we’ve made this list of some of the best Father’s Day gift ideas to help you out this Father’s Day.
Staple clothing items
Some dads are not so concerned with buying themselves new clothes so Father’s Day is the perfect opportunity to gift him some clothes he may need. Items like t-shirts and socks never go astray. Given we’re coming into the warmer months, dad may even appreciate some shorts or a new hat.
A homemade card
A card expressing your love and appreciation for dad is always a great idea for Father’s Day but a homemade card is an extra special touch. You can choose one of Teacher PD’s Carer Appreciation Cards to colour-in, decorate and write a personalised message to dad in.
Gardening is a great way to get outside and enjoy nature. So, why not gift dad some gardening items? Your present could include some seeds or seedlings of plants he loves, gardening tools or some lawn care items. This is a great Father’s Day gift idea, especially coming into spring!
An outdoor chair
Once your dad has his new garden all sorted, he will probably want to sit outside and watch it grow, like many dads do! An outdoor chair is the perfect Father’s Day gift idea for this. Dad can sit and admire his garden and watch the kids play outside with his new outdoor chair. If dad likes the outdoors, you could consider gifting him a camp chair he can take on all his outdoor adventures.
Dads love a voucher but they will love a customised voucher even more! Consider making dad a voucher to give him time-off from his household chores. Your voucher could be for washing his car, taking out the rubbish or vacuuming. Not only will dad appreciate the sentiment, it’s also a thoughtful gift that doesn’t break the budget! You can create the voucher simply by writing on and decorating a card or you could use a free graphic design site such as Canva to create it.
Food is a key to many dads’ hearts! Try making him a grazing box or platter for Father’s Day. Simply grab a large plate or small box and cover it with his favourite treats. Think chocolate, cheese, cold meats, fruits, crackers, lollies or pastries. If you don’t have time to make your own, you may be able to find a small business in your local area that specialises in Father’s Day grazing boxes.
We hope these Father’s Day gift ideas inspire you to spoil the dad or father figure in your life!
