It’s no secret that finding gift(s) for Father’s Day can be challenging. The deck is stacked against Father’s Day, with nearly 30% less spending on dads, compared to spending for Mother’s Day, a mere six weeks earlier. The usual gifts can feel tired-- electronics, ties, tools, etc. Not everyone’s dad(s)/father-figure(s) are lawnmower-loving, another-monogrammed-flask-drinking, techy-outdoorsy-sports people.
So how can you celebrate the Dads in your life in a more meaningful, personal way?
Focus on a shared memory and plan a gift around it.
Did you and Dad frequently visit a particular local diner? Get a painting or a print made of the place. Is there a particular date that’s meaningful to both of you? Commission a star map for the date. Do you and Dad bond over your shared love of cooking? Find an online cooking class to learn about a new type of cuisine from a distance, then cook a special meal together.
There are so many ways to give more personally and make Dad feel special.
Here’s a true story for inspiration:
Rob, a dad of 5, fondly remembers how he and his eldest son, Andrew, rescued a snapping turtle in Maine. When Andrew was looking for a gift for his dad, he remembered the turtle and his father’s joy telling that story to friends and relatives.
Andrew gave his dad a handmade turtle by the talented Kelsey of Too by Three. Rob opened the gift box, saw the gift and laughed and laughed while re-telling everyone on Zoom the story of the snapping turtle in Maine.
