It’s time to celebrate everyone’s favorite guy, dad! The man who fights the monsters in the closet, removes the training wheels and plays catch even when he’s tired it’s time to salute dads everywhere. Here are a few ways to make dad smile on his special day.


  1. Personalized gifts. A personalized gift shows that you put extra thought and effort into your selection. It could be anything from a mug with his name on it to a custom-made piece of jewelry.

  2. Gifts that reflect his interests. If your dad loves to golf, get him a new set of clubs. If he loves to cook, get him a new cookbook or kitchen gadget. If he loves to read, get him a gift certificate to his favorite bookstore.

  3. Gifts that make his life easier. A new grill, a lawnmower or a power tool can all make your dad's life a little bit easier.

  4. Gifts that help him relax and de-stress. A new massage chair, a subscription to his favorite streaming service, or a gift certificate to a spa are all great ways to help your dad relax and de-stress.

  5. Gifts that create lasting memories. Tickets to a sporting event, a concert, or a play are all great ways to create lasting memories with your dad.

  6. Gifts that are good for his health. A new fitness tracker, a healthy cookbook, or a subscription to a meal delivery service are all great ways to help your dad stay healthy.

  7. Gifts that show you care. A handwritten letter, a framed photo of the two of you, or a donation to his favorite charity in his name are all great ways to show your dad how much you care.

  8. Gifts that are unique and unexpected. If you're looking for something truly unique, try to find a gift that reflects your dad's personality or interests. It could be anything from a vintage baseball card to a rare book to a personalized piece of art.

  9. Gifts that are simply fun. If your dad is the kind of guy who enjoys a good time, get him a gift that will make him laugh or smile. It could be anything from a new video game to a set of golf balls to a box of his favorite candy.

  10. The gift of time. The most important gift of all is the gift of time. Spend time with your dad on Father's Day and tell him how much you love and appreciate him. Go out to eat, watch his favorite movie or play catch in the backyard. Whatever you do, make sure it's something that you'll both enjoy.

No matter what you choose, make sure it's a gift that your dad will love and appreciate. The most important thing is to show him how much you care.
