With Father’s Day on the horizon, I ask the eternal question “what do you get the man who has everything?” I ask him what he would like and he invariably responds, “nothing.” So in my wisdom I get him what I want – an air fryer, or a new skillet. To save you from this scenario we’ve put together some gift suggestions, and activities that go with them, that he’ll be sure to love.
Activities to Enjoy Together
We all know that life can get a little hectic sometimes. But even through the busy days, endless errands, and household chores, Dad’s got your back. Sometimes we get so caught up in the day-to-day grind that we forget to carve out down-time to spend with each other. This Father’s Day, make it a point to schedule in quality time that is free from the distractions of everyday life.
For some one-on-one fun we recommend Two’s Company’s Backgammon Set or Demdaco’s Dominoes. Throw your competitive edge out the window and have a heart-to-heart over a friendly game. For an extra treat, take a game with you to the beach or on a hike and spend some time outdoors as you play together. Pack a picnic lunch for two (or five), and make sure Dad stays hydrated, gifting him this sleek color block canteen from Corkcicle.
Want to get the rest of your family in on the action? Up the game-play and comradery with a Two’s Company Magnetic Dart Game or Poker Set. Have some laughs, shoot the breeze, and take it easy with Dad. If games aren’t his thing, and he’d rather sit back and relax, consider getting him a Mud Pie Beer Mug or Badash Crystal Whiskey Set and fill with his favorite drinks to enjoy. Ultimately, it’s the simple act of spending time together that he will appreciate the most.
While there’s no substitute for quality time, we also understand that we can’t be together every moment of the day. A special way to remind someone that you care is by giving them a gift that will let them know you’re thinking of them whenever they look at it.
The sleek Mark Lane Table Clock from Zodax and Two’s Company Leather Desk Tray are both excellent choices for the modern man’s desk. They are pieces that are sure to fit in nicely with his office and serve as a memento of the special relationship that you two share. Whenever Dad glances at the clock or picks up his keys from the tray, he will be reminded of your bond.
For an even more straightforward sentiment, let your dad know your unconditional love is enduring with the Inspired Generations Family Forever Sign. Pair it with a photo of you and Dad in Mariposa’s Beaded Family Frame so he’ll always have the memory and reminder of your love close by. Though we don’t need a holiday to appreciate everything he does for us all year round, it is a great opportunity to let Dad know he’s number one.
