This year, father’s day will be celebrated on the 19th of June, so although you still have plenty of time to plan and shop for the perfect gifts, it never hurts to organize everything beforehand. Of course, no one knows your dad better than you do, but if you could still use some ideas for some extra inspiration, you came to the right place. We’ve put together a guide with gift ideas for all budgets, so that every father can feel loved and appreciated.
When we think of a subscription, the first thing that comes to mind is probably the monthly subscriptions to streaming services such as Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, and Spotify, but in today’s world of digitalization, you can get your father a subscription for literally anything. He likes beer? Great, there’s a subscription for that and every month he’ll receive all kinds of beer from all around the world. Does he enjoy collecting watches? You can be assured that with the right subscription he will get a new watch every 30 days to make his collection ever greater. High quality alcohol, cologne, clothes, and even meat and plants: you can get him absolutely anything. This is a present that will remind him of how much you love him not only once a year, but on a monthly basis.
It is a well-known fact that most men don’t like going shopping and see nothing wrong in wearing the same shirt for a decade. If your father happens to be one of them, a classic, high-quality woolen garment, such as a classy Aran sweater, is a gift that you should consider. Although it might seem as an inappropriate present for the hot summer days, it will surely come very handy when the temperature drops. A traditional white Aran sweater makes the perfect gift, since it will be dressy enough to wear on multiple occasions, both official and casual ones, but it will also be comfortable enough to be worn on family dinners and gatherings.
If you’re a teenager who would like to get their father a gift but doesn’t have too much money, or if you’re simply on a tight budget, the best idea for you would be to give a homemade present that doesn’t require purchasing. Find something that you’re good at and find a way to transform it into a present for our dad. For someone who’s good at inventing new recipes and enjoys cooking, baking a cake or making some popsicles with your father’s favorite flavor can make a good present. If you’re good at drawing or painting, try creating a picture of your dad with someone he loves, such as the whole family or maybe his favorite pet.
If there’s one thing known about the dads, it’s that they sure love a good ol’ BBQ. As trivial as it might sound, a barbeque kit makes a wonderful present for this celebration. You can get him a regular kit with utensils such as thongs, forks, and spatulas or you can get a bit extra and buy a more sophisticated one that has sauce brushes, scrapers, or a digital thermometer. Your hardworking father deserves some relaxation, and with such a kit, he will be able to enjoy his holiday even more. After all, what better way of celebrating on this wonderful summer day than by throwing a BBQ party in the backyard of your house.
For the nostalgic dad who’s into tech and loves creating new memories, an instant camera, like the Polaroid ones, is the go-to choice. If you feel like none of the modern devices will be to his taste, you can also shop for a vintage instant camera, just like the one that he dreamed of when he was your age. This is a present that he will definitely bring along on every vacation you’ll go, and if you want to make it even more special, get him an album to keep all of the photos he’ll make organized in one place. Let the first photo be the one of your whole family on this beautiful father’s day this year.
