It’s no secret that dads can be tricky to buy for at the best of times. They will often say “have everything they need” or give you very vague clues on a gift they might want. While generally unhelpful for you as a gift giver, there are a number of other ways to find the perfect gift for dad:
Consider their hobbies: Do they like to travel, go to the gym or play sports? Check out how they carry their gear. If their go-to backpack or bag is getting a bit worn, they’d certainly appreciate an upgrade.
Have a look at their wallet: A classic Father’s Day gift idea, a wallet is typically your dad’s carry-all. From credit cards to ID, loyalty coupons, receipts and old ticket stubs, their wallet is a piece that gets daily use. However, with all that use, wallets tend to wear out quicker than most, making it a great idea for Father’s Day to give them something newer.
Gifts for their future plans: If you know that your dad has a holiday coming up, a work trip or even an overnight gathering with friends, do they need new luggage? Helping them prepare for an upcoming event by getting them the perfect bag will be greatly appreciated when it rolls around.
