If your dad is anything like mine, he is one of the most influential people in your life. He’s the one who is there for you when you need advice, and chances are, he’s probably taught you a good deal of life lessons.
When Christmas comes around, it’s a great opportunity to show your appreciation for all that he’s done by giving him a special gift that makes a change from socks or aftershave.
Decoration for the shed or ‘man cave’
If your dad is a big fan of tinkering and taking things apart, then a blueprint decoration could complete his garage or man-cave.
There are tons of blueprints framed up as decorations out there for all kinds of different things, from ballparks to the patents for golf equipment. Either way, you should be able to find something that your dad can hang high and nerd out about.
Many dads are big fans of fishing. It gives them a chance to decompress and take their mind off of things for a little while. If you have some good fishing spots around you, some solid fishing gear would be a great option for your dad.
Whether it be a fishing rod or simply accessories like more bait, line, or hooks, a bundle of fishing gear is perfect. No matter what it is, he’ll probably need it at some point, since fishing accessories run out pretty quickly.
Help for the handyman
If your dad is the handyman type, he’ll almost certainly appreciate some new tools. Dads often have a good set of common tools that they’re already invested into and familiar with, so try to go with some more uncommon or somewhat obscure tools they would love, but might not splurge on for themselves. He would surely appreciate it as a gift!
Something that every good dad needs is a proper pair of work shoes. They usually resort to using some common sneakers, but some good steel-toed work shoes can protect their feet from any stray falling tools or other debris – even if they only need them while working around the house in the yard. They provide better stability on slippery or rocky surfaces, preventing any unwanted falls.
Finally, if your dad is a big sports fan, chances are he has at least some pieces of memorabilia. It might be something as simple as a t-shirt or jersey, or something more displayable like a banner or a flag. Either way, there’s probably something that he doesn’t have that you can get without breaking the bank that will always put a smile on his face that he can either display or wear with pride.
