Keen Gift Ideas for Father's Day
Still Wondering What To Get Dad?
Fathers traditionally eschew large signs of emotion or affection. They have historically left sentimental matters to mothers. Thus, shopping for Dad - for something that shows him how much you love him - often feels like a very difficult chore.
However, with Father's Day just around the corner (June 17, 2012), it time to turn your thoughts to the subject of such gifts. Fortunately, there are a lot of great products out there which will make it easy to show your dad how you feel about him.
Jewelry Can be a Great Father's Day Gift
For this Father's Day, you might consider picking up some fashionable accessories for dear old Dad.
A gift such as the Masonic bracelet pictured can serve as a charming addition to any ensemble.
In addition, every man needs a stylish watch for both practical and aesthetic reasons.
Grooming and Attire for Dad
It's certainly no secret that Dad's really admire gifts related to grooming. With that in mind, a nice shaving kit (or even an electric razor) is always a gift that is well-received and appreciated.
In addition, Fathers are often said to collect ties like women collect shoes. In other words, a man can never have too many nice ties, so this is one area in which you can't go wrong.
Finally, some luxurious, relaxing bath apparel is something that Dad would be quite fond of. With that in mind, a plush men's bathrobe represents comfortable, personal attire that he can wear around the house before starting his day.
Up-To-Date Technology Makes for a Great Gift for Father's Day
Dads, in some ways, are just big kids. Thus - just like a kid - they often tend to get excited about new toys and gadgets. (And I'm speaking from personal experience here.)
With that in mind, something like the Kindle Fire would be an excellent gift. Not only is it an ereader that can hold up to 6000 books, but it also has a wide range of functionality that allows for web browsing, music, movies and more.
Get Dad a Spa Day - and Cookies!
Finally, it might be worthwhile to go a little non-traditional and get Dad something unusual for Father's Day - a spa day. It will give him a chance to unwind and relax (and see what all the fuss is about with respect to women getting spa treatments). With that goal in mind, a gift card from SpaFinder.com is just what the doctor ordered, and will permit him to go to just about any spa he wants.
In addition, you can also find a way to help nurture his inner sports fanatic by giving him a sports tin of cookies from Mrs. Field's Cookies. These cookies come in a container branded with his favorite team's logo, giving him another reason to cheer them on.
(And if he has more than one favorite team or favorite sport, it might not be a bad idea to pick up two. After all, you can never have too many cookies.)
Summary of Father's Day Gift Ideas
It goes without saying that there are lots of great gifts that you can give your Dad for Father's Day. Of course, you're angling to get him something special, something that he'll treasure forever. While most items listed here are sure to fit that bill, the truth of the matter is that Dad will be happy with whatever you get him, because deep down inside, the mere fact that you care is always going to be worth far more than any gift.
