We all love our Dads to the moon and back, but when it comes to surprises, we think of Moms first. A dad’s sacrifices should not be forgotten. He should always be told how he is loved and what better way to express it than this Father’s Day. Yes, it’s time you shed all inhibitions and awkwardness and start thanking your Dad for his strong presence in your life.
Keep the following points in mind before deciding on a surprise for your father.
- His areas of interest! He could be a budding chef, a sports fan or a gadget freak. List out what piques his interest.
- Make sure whatever you choose would be his favorite and exclusively for him and not a shared gift.
- Think of your budget and buy what you can afford only.
- Personalize your gift and also leave a handwritten note he will cherish forever.
Here are some valuable Father’s day surprises to surprise Dad:
Spend time with him and make special memories.
Spend quality time with your Dad. It should be only you and him and plan a fun activity he will love. Take him out for dinner, a movie or an outing he will love, like a sports match. Your time could even be together at home where you can cook a meal together sharing funny anecdotes.
Personalized coffee mug
While this looks like a clichéd gift, the plenty of personalized options it offers make it extremely appealing. For starters, it’s great for those on a budget. You can personalize it with some pictures of the best moments of his life, add captions on why he is the world’s best Dad or simply write him a personalized message on it. Every morning, his coffee time will be made by you.
A recipe book
If your Dad is a budding chef, you can dole out some rare recipes which he will enjoy whipping up. Get him a glossy recipe book which he always had his eye on but did not purchase. Specialized recipe books are a treasure and can be handed down generations and would be loved by a father who loves to cook.
Get out on the water
For a Dad who’s loved the water all his life, you can organize a fishing trip, rent a boat or even jet ski if he loves the adrenaline rush. This is just perfect for the summers and he will love you for it.
Shop online for personalized gifts
Online stores offer personalized gifts like customized cushions, photo-frames and a lot more. You can also shop for his favorite clothes online and get great discounts. Check for father’s day sales on online sites like CouponX, Retailmenot, and Shoppirate – they offer some good coupons and discounts on a variety of products.
Head off for a picnic
Sandwiches, family time and the sunny outdoors! What more would Dad want than spending quality time with those who love him the most? You can play some games as you enjoy your time in the outdoors. A bottle of sparkly wine thrown in will add the glitter to the occasion.
If your Dad’s the adventurous type, you can head outdoors or even pitch a tent in your own backyard. Spend the night under the stars recalling pleasant memories or share scary stories around a bonfire. It’s something which you, your Dad and those who head with you will unlikely ever forget.
Barbecue tool set
Whenever he pulls out his grill and barbeque set carefully chosen by you, he will be reminded of the wonderful days he spends with you and grilling. It’s a great way to please a dad who loves to cook and the outdoors.
Amazon TV fire stick
This is a gift for the Dad who loves to watch TV. It is designed for ultra HD streaming and this Alexa voice remote will enable your father to watch anything be it Netflix and Hulu and plenty of sports!
For the Dad who loves technology, an Apple Watch which does it all, be it fitness, music, calls and more. This is one gift he will not forget to flaunt with his circle of friends.
