Shopping for Dad can be difficult – what do you get the guy who always got everything for you? And dads always seem to have the attitude of ‘Oh, save your money, I don’t need anything!” It doesn’t make gift shopping any easier. If this is the predicament you’re in, here are a few ideas that might help you out while shopping for Christmas or birthdays.
Dads that love to read: Does your dad love to read? If so, there are a plethora of gifts that can make him a very happy man. One great gadget for dad’s who like to read is the Kindle electronic reader. The new Kindle has a larger screen and is super easy to use. Another gift for voracious readers is a magazine subscription. Whatever your dad’s biggest interests are, anything from jigsaw puzzles to sports, you can find a magazine that caters to it.
Dads that love the outdoors: There are some really cool tech gadgets available for dads that love the outdoors. One really handy item for Dad might be a GPS navigator. There are navigators that can be used in the car while driving, then come out for portable use. Does dad love to golf? Try an electronic rangefinder so he can use technology to lower his score. Does he walk or run for fitness? Get him a pedometer so he can track his progress. No matter what your dad’s favorite outdoor activity, you’ll be able to find him a gift to fit.
Dads that love to cook: Do you have one of those dads that love to spend time in the kitchen? Then he’ll always love a new kitchen gadget. There are tons of options from food processors to meat slicers to food choppers to juicers to bread machines. Or maybe your dad doesn’t spend much time in the kitchen but is absolutely the master of the grill. In that case, there are plenty of grill accessories that can make outdoor cooking easier, too, like utensil sets and pizza trays for cooking pizza on the grill.
Dads that love sports: Is dad a huge fan of a certain sport or sports team? Why not get him a season’s subscription to all the games on cable? Or maybe a digital video recorder would be nice, so that he never has to miss a game. If you’re really looking to be a big spender, why not spring for season tickets? If that’s a little more than you can afford, get Dad a jersey, hat or jacket featuring his favorite team.
Notice that all these gifts have something in common: they all require looking at what your father’s interests are and getting a gift that fits. Anyone can go out and buy another tool or tie. If you want to really make Dad happy, show him that you’ve put a little thought into his gift and have taken his tastes into consideration. That way you’ll know your gift will truly be appreciated.
