Getting gifts can be so stressful! Especially for our parents, and especially as young adults. How can we possibly get something for the people who gave us everything, and may still be giving us everything? *Raises hand*
Obviously, it’s just the thought that counts. But what is there to do when you can’t think of anything? This page is the answer, duh. Enter Kelsey. Here’s some ideas for father’s day gifts you can try out this year.
Everybody loves funny shirts. I personally enjoy the very minimalist sayings that only need one word to be funny. But I know of others that are good, like making the shirt look like an ATM machine, because we always go to our daddies for money, amirite? Help your dad come up with some new bad jokes by getting him some gear to wear as a Father’s day gift.
If your dad is super old-school, or just into the vintage style, you can get him a pocket watch. Or if he’s just more into small items, try a keychain! He can use it to subtly flaunt to the world that he’s a dad with caring kids.
Use it Around the House
I know it’s stereotypical and generalizing, but we think of handiwork when we think of dads. My family fits the stereotype perfectly. My dad is the one fixing everything, building stuff, and always working in the yard. If your family is the same, tools are always a good choice! Grab your dad a pocket knife, hammer, or drill. Or something. I don’t know what tools, just that tools are useful for things.
Another great one is coffee mugs. My dad is addicted to coffee. He drinks it black and needs at least a cup to get through the day. I personally feel like you can never collect too many mugs, and more are always a welcome addition. And you can use them for other things besides coffee. Grab dad a mug and I’m sure he’ll love it.
From the Baby
If you just had a little one of your own, you may have TWO men to get gifts for from now on: your dad AND your baby’s daddy! Make the day special by getting them something from the little one. Yea, we know they didn’t pick it out, but you gotta start teaching the kid how to give at some point. And it’s cute. Do it.
If the kid is a little older, you can still totally be cute about getting them a gift to give their dad. Do something like a book that they can read together and bond over. Make sure you get a picture of that stuff, because it is cute A.F. Plus, it doesn’t cost an arm and a leg.
If you remember early enough to get something, you can always personalize your father’s day gifts! Design a shirt, or engrave a pocket knife. It shows how much thought you actually put into the gift. Then he can’t allege that you grabbed it at the grocery store when you were out the day before.
And not everything has to be all about the fact that he’s a dad. We get it, you procreated. Congrats, here’s a keychain. If you want something more personal, go more personal. Get a movie you both like, or at least can enjoy the day together with. Frame a photo to cherish a memory. Maybe don’t get anything. Just hang out!
Happy Father’s Day!
These are just a few good options for some Father’s Day gifts. There are plenty of other options you can do! What are your favorite gifts to do? Share below and enjoy your time with your dad!
