It's a gift that you've gotten especially for him. He's your daddy and he loves you so he will surely appreciate whatever kind of gift that you give him as long as you're sincere about it and it came from the heart.

You might think that your gift isn't good enough but just the fact that you took the time to get a gift for your Father is already more than enough.

This shows just how much you care about and love your Father. Furthermore, what is really important on this special holiday (this Father's Day) is just to let our Fathers know that we love them.

Let our Dads know that they haven't been forgotten, that we're thinking of them and we appreciate them and love them with all our hearts. Much more than any material gift, that simple gesture of love is already more than enough. Of course, there's no reason why you can't add to that gift with something material and tangible.

Don't just give your dad a card. Include a short personal note or message for him and tell him you love him

These may seem like simple gifts but that doesn't make them any less great or special. Furthermore, these gift ideas are also all very useful for your Father.

These ideas are practical and would surely be valued by Fathers who have need of these things or could make use of these things for themselves. Take a look at them and see what you think:

1. Wallet

This item can definitely be considered practical and useful. Wallets are where we put our money and credit cards and, sometimes, even some pictures of loved ones.

This item helps to keep both cash and credit cards organized so they're not all over the place. Prevent yourself from losing money by placing it in your chosen wallet. The many men's wallets featured below would surely interest your Dad.

A wallet is a good gift choice for your dad especially if his is already old and in need of replacement. If you get him one that comes with an ID window, you can add a family picture before wrapping up the present.

If you think your Father's own wallet is old already and in need of replacement, then consider getting any one of these fantastic-looking wallets.

Take a look at the wallet featured below from Amazon.com:

This one has an ID or picture window, so you can add a family photo before giving this as a gift to your dad. Now, every time your father looks at his wallet, he can remember his loving family.

 

One of the great things about the Wallet for Men-Genuine Leather RFID Blocking Bifold Stylish Wallet With 2 ID Window is how it comes in a variety of different colors. This includes black, red, blue, gray and brown. So you can easily choose one that comes in your dad's favorite color.

Here are other wallets you can also consider for your dad:

1. Hugo Boss Men's Bi-Fold Beckley Brown/Black Leather Wallet.

This wallet may look small, but it's more than enough to fit your Father's money and credit cards with its many slots.

Since you can even put a picture in this wallet, you may opt to put one before giving it to your Father.

You can put a picture of your Mother or even a small family picture so your Father can be reminded of his loving family every time he makes use of his new wallet.

2. Bosca Mens Bi Fold Executive I.D. Wallet Old Leather

This one comes in two colors: cognac and dark brown. There's a lot of credit card slots in this wallet. There's also an ID window where your Father can display his ID. But he may also decide to just put a family picture there instead.

3. Tommy Hilfiger Cambridge Brown Leather Slim Billfold Wallet

This one comes in a box. It has fewer card slots than the other wallets but it still has a slot where you can display a photo. It has a different design from the other wallets but this doesn't make it look any less nicer.

Its features are aplenty. It actually has 16 card slots along with one ID window. There are two separate compartments for money. It is of high quality and it looks well-made with superb craftsmanship.

Amazon.com's product page for this item even says that it is "handmade and well-constructed". This is also a highly-rated product by Amazon.com customers with it receiving a 4.4 out of 5 stars (as of this writing).

2. Fountain Pen

Does your Father like writing? Does he have a business or other types of work that require him to write and sign documents? Does he have his own special pen that he always uses? Is he interested in fountain pens?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, then you definitely want to consider giving your dad any one of these fountain pens featured below.

Giving a fountain pen as a gift is actually helpful and practical especially if you're giving it to someone who has need of it or who would greatly benefit from having a fountain pen.

Moreover, there's just something special about fountain pens that you wouldn't say about ordinary pens.

Fountain pens also have their own charm and beauty to them with their different elegant designs. Your Dad will surely love these fountain pens.

Let's take a closer look at the fountain pen featured below:

Sheaffer Prelude Signature 22K Gold Plate with Engraved Diamond Square Trim Fountain Pen (9172-0)

You can see an image of this fountain pen above. It come in with its own box and it really looks very classy and special.

This fountain pen is of high quality with an aesthetically pleasing design. Your Papa is sure to have fun writing with this fountain pen. After all, writing doesn't have to be a tedious task.

 

Looking at the image of the Sheaffer Prelude Signature 22K Gold Plate with Engraved Diamond Square Trim Fountain Pen (9172-0) (which you can see above), it doesn't make you wonder how it can be so expensive.

Even the image makes the pen look to be of high quality. And the name itself even mentions the gold plate and the diamond square on the pen.

All these certainly add more artistry to this marvelous pen, which your Father will surely love.

Here are other pens you can consider giving to your dad:

1. MontBlanc Meisterstuck Platinum Line Classique Ballpoint Pen - Black.

Okay, this isn't actually a fountain pen. As you can see from the name, it's a ballpoint pen. So why is it here? For one, in case your daddy would prefer another type of pen, you can select this ballpoint pen instead. For another, just take a look at the image of this ballpoint pen.

Don't you think it looks very classy? It certainly seems like it can hold its own against all the other fountain pens out there. It might almost be mistaken for a fountain pen with how it looks.

2. Pilot Varsity Disposable Fountain Pens, 9 Pen Assortment in Mesh Pencil Cup.

For the previous pens, you'll get a box where you can place the pen in. For this item, you'll be getting several pens in a mesh pencil cup.

Your Father will have several pens with different colors to choose from if you decide to give him this item.

One of the best things about this item is how you get 9 assorted pens which comes in a pencil cup. So instead of just giving your dad one pen, you can give him 9 at once.

 

These pens are disposable and they're certainly cheaper than the other pens above but this doesn't make them any less worthy.

Reviewers from Amazon.com have rated this item highly as it got 4.8 out of 5 stars (as of this writing). You also get several different colors for these pens including black, blue, pink, purple and red.

3. Gift Card

Are you still unable to come up with any possible Father's Day gift ideas? Are you still at a loss and completely stumped as to what kind of gift to give?

This can be because you're not sure what your Dad would like and you don't want to make a mistake.

Perhaps you could actually think up of many ideas or you think all the ideas here are good but you just can't decide exactly which gift you should get for your Father. Are you overwhelmed with too many choices? Or do you think there aren't enough choices at all?

Either way, one of your best bets is to go with an Amazon.com gift card to give to your dad for the holiday in question. Why?

The reason for this is because giving a gift card for Father's Day effectively solves your gift dilemma.

Since you can't come up with any possible gifts to give to your Dad for whatever reason, why don't you just let your Father decide for himself?

By giving him the gift card, your Father can choose exactly what kind of item he'd like for himself so you won't run the risk of disappointing him by getting him something he doesn't actually like or want.

You also avoid getting your Father the wrong sizes or the wrong types of items that he wants.

For instance, you want to get your Father a pair of shoes because you know he's looking to get one but you don't know his shoe size or you don't know what exactly he'd like or you'd forgotten what brand he preferred.

In this case, asking him might certainly spoil the surprise of your gift. With the gift card from Amazon.com, you simply let your Father be the one to choose for himself what he'd like.

Furthermore, the major features of these gift cards is the fact that there is no expiration on any of them and you can use them to purchase any of the millions of different kinds of products from Amazon.com.

      @peachpurple - thanks for the comment. I guess some of these items might be too expensive for others but there are also cheaper alternatives to these items. I am also thinking of writing a Father's Day hub featuring cheaper products.
