Great Gift For Dad This Fathers Day

Author : Robert Monie

June is the month dedicated to all fathers. And with this, they deserve something special from their sons and daughters. What will you give you father? Would it be something you bought from the mall? Or something you did all by yourself? Whether it is cheap, expensive, small, or big, we have to make sure that it is a special one because we will give it to someone who is dear to us.

Here are some suggestions you can give to your father.

If your father is between 40 - 50 years old, why not give him a pair of eyeglasses? At this stage, our fathers are starting to feel that everything is going blurry. Or if they do have one already, why not provide them a new one or better, a check-up with their Ophthalmologist. I’m sure they will appreciate this because they need this.

If your father is between 50 â€" 60 years old, why not give him books? At this stage, our fathers would like to spend more time reading books, or go fishing, or play golf. But books are the cheapest ones. Just make sure that the books you will give are not boring and are substantial.

If your father is between 61 â€" 70 years old, why not give him a basket of fruits? Why fruits? It’s because it’s healthy. We have to admit that our father is growing old and the only way we can help him to stay healthy is giving him healthy foods, healthy lifestyle, and happy life.

If your father is between 70 â€" 80 years old, why not give him a rocking chair? They will really appreciate this because this is a comfortable to sit in and they will feel more relax.

If you didn’t agree to my first suggestions, then why not give him a cake? If you can bake a cake or cook good food then much better. Giving him something that you made will make him feel special. Or give him a wallet? This will be useful to him. Why not give him a watch? A watch is something that everyone will appreciate regardless of their age. You can buy beautiful yet affordable watches and give to your special father. You will never go wrong with that suggestion. It will become useful to them. It doesn’t have to be expensive. Many stores today offer low-price watches. Just make sure that it is durable and will last for a lifetime.

Our father deserves the most wonderful gifts we can ever give them. They protected us from everything and they have loved us with all their hearts. A day especially made for them is not enough to make them feel that they are special. Don’t forget to always kiss your father and say thank you. Always make them happy.

Father's Day gift baskets come in all shapes and sizes and can be tailored to fit any budget. You have the option of purchasing them off the shelf or as a custom made gift. Whether Dad is a fishing nut, racecar fan or a lover of gourmet goodies, you can easily find a basket that he will enjoy. (And, not take up room in his sock drawer.)

If the special guy in your life is a movie buff, request a Father's Day gift basket created around this theme. Imagine his surprise when he receives a basket filled with a variety of treasures such as his favorite DVD (or movie rental gift card), gourmet popcorn, plenty of concession-stand type candy, movie trivia guide and a collectible movie tin.

If Dad is a "golf junkie", there are many Father's Day golf-related gift

baskets that will fit him to a t. or in this case, tee. Choose small themed items. maybe a book filled with great golf tips, a handy notepad or a perpetual calendar. Add to that, a bucket of chocolate golf balls, Dad's favorite nuts, snack mix and a golfer's coffee mug, filled with a variety of gourmet coffee singles.

Does your Dad claim to be the "master of the grill"? If so, BBQ-related, Father's Day gift baskets are an option worth your consideration. Start with a wicker tray-type basket filled with a variety of sauces and marinades. Add items such as a small chopping board, BBQ mitts and/or utensils, smoky cheeses, a themed cookbook and a gift card for Dad's favorite grocery store.

There really are Father's Day gift baskets appropriate for everyone on your list, regardless of their interests. This year, take the time to have your favorite gift basket vendor create a special basket that won't end up in the back of the closet, collecting dust!
