Father’s Day Gift Ideas

May 23, 2018 HLT Uncategorized

Father’s Day is right around the corner, so it’s time to start thinking about Father’s Day gifts! If your dad is anything like mine, he doesn’t give any clues about what he wants for any occasion. This has given me lots of time to contemplate ideal gifts for fathers, which is what has led to this list!

1. For a traditional, classic gift, gift him a watch.

Watches are timeless gifts, allowing you to stay on your father’s mind (or rather, wrist) throughout the day. Since many people have started using their phones as watches, your father might not have gotten a watch for himself in a while, which makes now the perfect time for a new watch! You can personalize many watches with a thoughtful engraving.

2. Something handmade

You and I both know that spending money doesn’t equate to love. Spending a ton of money on a Father’s Day gift might make your dad smile as he remembers that you’re financially independent, but it won’t help him feel truly appreciated and loved. Help your dad feel loved this Father’s Day by building him something special. If you’ve been looking for an excuse to try woodworking, this might be the perfect excuse for you! Go out and find some pallets to make your father a coffee table or outdoor couch, if you’re feeling ambitious, or even just build him a coatrack! If woodworking isn’t your thing, you can keep it simple and just couple your present with a handmade card for dad. He’ll appreciate getting to read your words to him on paper, instead of electronically, for once, and it’ll be a special memento that he might want to store away for safekeeping with your childhood arts and crafts!

3. A HearBand!

Whether your dad is the type of father who loves music on his morning jog, listening to podcasts while doing the dishes, or taking business calls at the grocery store, the HearBand is the ideal gift for any dad on Father’s Day! A HearBand will allow your father to turn up his tunes, and turn up amplification to hear the ambient noise around him, keeping him safe and in-tune with his surroundings. HearBands are versatile and they’ll slip right into your dad’s routine, no matter what it’s like! Keep your dad up to speed with emerging technology with HearBands, and we can almost promise that you won’t stop hearing about them once he starts using them!

4. A weekend adventure!

The most special thing you can give to your dad is your time. Show your father you really care on Father’s Day by planning a weekend adventure for the two of you on a weekend that you’re both free. You can either purchase plane tickets to a new destination to explore together, or you can keep it simple by planning a camping trip at a nearby scenic destination (or an overnight hotel stay, if your father isn’t the outdoorsy type).

5. A slideshow with photos from over the years.

Let’s be honest, even when our fathers pretend not to be sentimental, they definitely are. By putting together a slideshow of special memories you and your father have shared over the years, you’ll have the opportunity to show your father how much he means to you, and you’ll get to experience a shared sense of nostalgia as you discuss memories (and maybe even learn more about your childhood and family history in the process)! Father’s Day is about celebrating the journey that brought you from infancy to adulthood and transformed your father from man to father. Taking some time to compile photos from the journey will mean a lot to him, and will bring a whole new dimension of meaning to your Father’s Day!
