Best Gifts for Dad


Dads deserve great gifts, whether for Father's Day, Christmas, or their birthday. When choosing a gift for your dad, think about his favorite activities. Focus on these and you'll find that perfect gift for your dad with relative ease.

Weekend getaway

Give dad the gift of peace and quiet away from his busy routines. Plan a weekend getaway to his favorite golf resort or give him tickets to a sports game. If your dad loves the theater, give him tickets to a show along with a gift certificate to one of his favorite restaurants. Call ahead of time and make hotel reservations for him. If airfare is required for travel, print out a copy of the flight itinerary and wrap it in a box or decorative envelope, along with any other tickets and certificates that are needed for the weekend.

Gifts for Dad at home or work

Wherever your dad works, there are many gifts that he can have with him at work. Some ideas include a digital photo frame with pictures of his family, an elegant desk clock or decorative paper weights. If Dad's constantly on the move, give him a set of personalized ballpoint pens, a digital photo key chain, pocket watch, or a money clip engraved with his initials. And gifts for all dads to enjoy at home would be cocktail sets, BBQ equipment, organic cloth bathrobes with warm slippers or garden tools.

Edible gifts for Dad

Most dads would appreciate a gift that will fill their stomach. Give your dad a filling gift from Omaha Steaks that he can grill on the BBQ, and then top it off with sweet treats from Harry and David, such as cookies and chocolates. Both of these companies will ship online orders directly to your home.You can also order an ice cream cake from your local Baskin-Robbins or Dairy Queen.
