Great Father Daughter Gift Ideas

Updated on May 19, 2014

Father Daughter Gifts

Here's a variety of gifts that would be great for birthdays, Father's Day, Christmas or any other occasion that is special for a dad and his daughter. There's something special about fathers and daughters and these gifts can help them enjoy some special time together.

I also have some fun activity ideas as well in case you're interested in planning some sort of an outing. If you have any special ideas of your own, please be sure to let me know in the comment section.

Father Daughter Day Ideas

Picnic Basket

How about planning a special outing for these two? Perhaps there is a movie they would both enjoy seeing or a local play? If the two of them share the love of the same sport, how about tickets to a game?

Another idea is to let them spend time enjoying a sport such as an outing at the skating rink or some games of bowling. Do the share the love of a hobby? If so, gift them with something they can use while participating in the hobby together.

If they enjoy putting together puzzles or playing games, you could add to their collection. If they have a favorite music artist, how about that artist's latest CD? They could listen to it while enjoying an activity at home.

Picnics are fun. You could put together a tasty picnic basket for them to take to the park. Be sure to add some fun stuff to play with while there such as balls and Frisbees.

Father Daughter Scrapbook

Girls are very special to their dads just as dads are to their girls. A nice personalized gift is a scrapbook made especially for the two of them.

You can include photos, cute memories and funny stories about time of the two of them have spent together. Should you go with this idea, I suggest including some blank pages so over the years, they can add more memories.

Father Daughter Gift Baskets

A gift basket to be shared is both fun and creative. You can make one encompassing some of their favorite things. If the daughter is younger, an idea would be to make one with activities they can do together such as coloring books, puzzles and games.

For an older daughter, a basket could consist of gift cards they can share such as Starbucks, Jamba Juice, Subway or other places they can grab a snack at together.

If they have a favorite activity, you can go with that theme such as a movie basket, book basket, (that they can read the books together,) or even a treat basket.

      I really like the gift basket made of a cooler filled with goodies. That's a great idea for the entire family, hunting parties, camping, hiking and biking groups, many applications really.
