T-Shirt Gift Ideas For Your Dad

Updated on December 17, 2014

Dads are special and it's hard to express in mere words what we feel for them. He is that special person in your life who you can always look up to and feel completely secure around. He is your rock. So, when it comes to expressing your love for him, you may often feel stumped for words. In such situations, gifts come in real handy. A great, highly-usable and fail-safe gift is a t-shirt. You can't just go wrong with them.

Choosing the right t-shirt for your dad can make all the difference as far efficacy of the gift is concerned. You wish to convey your love through that gift and it's not always easy to pick out the right thing.

In case you feel too unsure of which t-shirt to choose you can just go for a simple, generic one like these.

As you can see alongside there are several t-shirts available in online and offline stores which can easily provide you a safe message/quote t-shirt to go with.

Throughout this article I will include photographs of t-shirts that can be bought online. The stores that I will be using will all have high reputations and come highly recommended. I may include an affiliate link or I will point you straight to the site or to a select collection of t-shirts that I have shortlisted as per my taste. You are welcome to share your feedback regarding these.

A t-shirt for every occasion

There are numerous occasions when you can gift these t-shirts to your father. It may be his birthday or marriage anniversary (I am including some great suggestions for marriage anniversaries in the next few paragraphs) or it may be father's day or some day of his triumph like a promotion or a win of some sorts. But, most importantly you don't have to have an occasion to give a loving present to your dad.

Gift mom and dad complimentary t-shirts for their marriage anniversary

Marriage anniversary gifts can be a real head-scratcher sometimes. But here is an easy idea for you. Matching yet complimentary t-shirts for your parents can make for some lighthearted fun and are useful yet cheap. Alternatively you can also go for the hoodies with the same messages.

Here are some of my most favorite pieces. You can also click on them and then go on to find more t-shirts on the site with a variety of colors, sizes and quote messages. The best part is that in today's online world, you can just look stuff up online and when you think, "hey that's a cool design, wish there was a hoodie with the same stuff printed on it", you don't have to ask the sales person, the sites just present you with the option whenever other alternatives (like, colors, sizes, hoodies or other merchandise) are available.. and these options are just a click away, quite literally. That IS the advantage of shopping online.

Tees For the Dad With A Sense of Humor

If your dad is the kind of guy who can rock self flaunting prints or can take a joke or two, you can also go for funny tees like these.

Or you can go for these extremely simple yet fetching prints that start in "made in". You can either go for the year of birth (like made in 1969 ... aged to perfection) or you can for the ones which say the state or city where you were born ... or something along these lines.

The great part about these t-shirts are that they are funny in a subtle way, without being offensive to anyone.

Ordering T-shirts Online

Ordering t-shirts online is a pieces of cake. You can just shortlist your favorite pieces or directly add the ones you like to your shopping cart. You can choose amongst a range of colors, sizes and prints. In fact, most stores also offer hoodies printed with the same messages as the tees. And you are ready to go. Just place your order, enter your credit card information and you are done. Most stores will be able to deliver your pieces within 2-4 weeks.
