Top 9 Gift Ideas for Father's Day


"The greatest gift I ever had came from God; I call him Dad". Being a Dad is a full time job with so many benefits- but it is a lot of work! Over the years a Dad puts in so much time, effort, and love for his children. This Father's Day show your Dad how much you love and appreciate him with a wonderful gift. The following ideas are gifts that Dad would love:

1.) New Tools/ Tool Box

If your Dad is handy he is sure to appreciate a gift of new tools or a new tool box. A new drill can makes many home improvement projects much easier.


2.) A bottle of wine

A bottle of wine improves with age, just like your Dad. Make a sentimental gesture by purchasing a bottle of wine made in a year that has significance to your father. After giving him this gift pop the cork and propose a toast in honor of your Dad.


4.) Tools for the grill

Many men may not enjoy slaving over pots and pans in a hot kitchen, but few can resist throwing some steaks on the grill. A set of grill tools will make your Dad's weekend cook-outs much easier, and more enjoyable. He is sure to get much use of them during the summer months following Father's Day.

3.) A gift certificate to have yard work done

That expanse of green grass at your Dad's house doesn't take care of itself. Your father may take great pride in the state of his yard, but yard maintenance can be tedious, hard work. Give Dad a Saturday off by purchasing a gift certificate to a local yard care company.

5.) An Apple Ipad

If your Dad is a fan of computers and technology he will be thrilled to receive a new Apple Ipad. This tablet is one of the hottest gadgets available right now, and it is sure to provide hours of entertainment.

6.) A leather wallet

A man carries a wallet everyday; make sure your Dad has a nice one. Invest in a wallet of fine leather and it will be a gift that your Dad can use for many years.


7.) Golf Equipment

After a long week of the daily grind many men enjoy a round of 18 holes. If your Dad enjoys hitting the links gift him with a new putter or another piece of golf equipment that can help improve his handicap.


8.)An e-reader

If your Dad is a fan of the written word consider buying him an e-reader like the Kindle or the Nook. These devices can hold his whole collection of books all in one small handheld device.

9.) Tickets to a Sporting Event

A day at the ballpark can be a great way for you and your Dad to spend time together while enjoying a great game. So pick up some tickets for you and your Dad, and cheer for your favorite team.

Some gifts do not have to be expensive or extravagant. If money is tight this year consider making a gesture that is high in sentimental value, even if it is low in monetary value. Make your Dad a photo collage of pictures of the two of you together over the years, or cook him a dinner of all of his favorite foods. A simple card can also be enough if you take the time to write down your true feelings of how much you love and appreciate your Dad. Whatever you decide to give your Dad for Father's Day this year, make his day special!
