Father’s day is around the corner and it’s time to come up with some interesting and fun gift ideas. There are many occasions from birthdays to Christmas when we can buy our significant other special and personal gifts. For father’s day, we have collected some ideas that make good presents specifically for dads!
Go on an adventure
For the dads who prefer a family outing to gifts why not invest in an experience? If you are looking for a simple outing you can get some tickets for a show, a cooking class, or a day in a nearby theme park. For something more out of the box have a look on Airbnb under the experiences tabs. You can find some great ideas locally for unusual outings that are family-friendly.
A Lego set can make a great gift especially if your other half is into Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, or any other franchises. If you have older children this can also give them an opportunity to work on something together. Lego sets come in multiple sizes and fit a wide range of budgets so you can surely find a good fit. The finished piece can also make a cool decorative item in the kids’ room as well!
Matching clothing might be a bit of a cliche but it’s definitely a safe choice. After all, what’s cuter than your adult man wearing a matching outfit with your little one? This is an easy and affordable gift that will definitely be a winner. Even if your other half is into something completely obscure you can always get them custom made for an extra few dollars. On websites like society6, you can get a wide range of items printed as well!
For the dads that enjoy science and like to explore, a small microscope set or pocket microscope can make an amazing gift. It can be a fantastic bonding tool between the father and the children as well while they are looking for different materials and items to put under the magnifying glass for observation. Its great fun for adults and children can learn while having fun too!
Race Car set
A remote control race car set can make an amazing gift for the dads that are also big kids themselves. Many of us still enjoy hobbies and games we played when we were younger. If your partner likes to play competitive games and enjoys hanging out with the kids, a set of racing cars could be the perfect solution to get them playing together. It’s fun and once again it’s easy to find ones that fit your budget no matter how much you are willing to spend. They can build makeshift racecourses too and let the games begin! Winner takes all the cookies!
Let’s face it, some people just really love golf. You can keep it simple and get some tickets for a local golf park, or a more budget-friendly version is to invest in a small mini golf set. This way the whole family can get involved and they can unroll it whenever they fancy inside or outside.
If your partner is into the night sky or nature in general a telescope could be an amazing gift. There are many different types available and you can find one easily that fits your budget. A nice telescope can make a great decorative piece in your house. It can also provide a quality bonding exercise between the father and the kids while looking at the stars together. You can even get a night sky guide book to help them on their journey of exploration!
Dad jokes book
Once a man becomes a father dad jokes are inevitable. Don’t try to fight it, it’s pointless. As a simple and budget-friendly father’s day gift, embrace the B category humor, and buy a book full of dad jokes. Who knows he might actually find one or two that are actually funny.
Sometimes it’s difficult to concentrate on work while the kids are at home. If you want to get something more on the useful side for the dads that need to get things done, a pair of noise-canceling headphones can be absolute winners. This is especially great if your partner is working from home and needs to work while the kids are running around. Most models also connect to an array of devices via Bluetooth so they can even watch TV in peace while the kids are playing in the same room.
If your partner enjoys video games and you have older kids you can’t go wrong with some old school racing games that the whole family can enjoy together. Mario Kart is a great option as it’s child friendly and will keep the whole family entertained for sure!
If your partner is into outdoor adventures why not invest in a large, family-sized tent with camping set in tow. Your nature-loving significant other will definitely love this. It will also give you a good reason to pack your bags and take the family out for a quick trip into nature! It’s a great opportunity for all of you to bond and for your partner to enjoy his hobby at the same time.
If you are not into buying things for each other or need to stick to a strict budget you can always organize a picnic for the family to spend some quality time together. You can even throw one in the middle of the living room among some pillows and blankets if you don’t have a garden and the local park is not an option. Get some finger food, make some sandwiches, bake a cake or cookies, and just spend some time together while playing some games.
No matter what you decide to get for your other half for father’s day, the experience is the most important. While it’s always great when you can find something useful for your other half but it’s even better when you can create memories together as a family.
Remember that you don’t have to spend a fortune to create an unforgettable experience for the whole family.
