Father’s Day Gifts Dads Really Want
Celebrating dad with homemade cards, early breakfast at home that may or may not include pieces of egg shell because little sister was excited to help make scrambled eggs, and every other sweet handmade piece of Father’s Day are the memories we cherish as parents. Mother’s Day is almost here but I’m already thinking about Father’s Day and what we can do differently this year to stand out amongst my husband’s last nine years as a dad. Father’s Day gifts dads really want are all the things my husband really will appreciate but would never tell us are on his gift wish list.
Father’s Day Gift Ideas Dads Really Want
Give dad the gift he really wants!
We have a busy schedule and often don’t have many free weekends. Instead of sharing plans for a family day to catch up on laundry, take advantage of your time together and surprise dad with a weekend getaway. I’m not talking Hawaii, although that would be amazing, but I know my husband would love a weekend in Carlsbad and a day visit to a favorite theme park. Although it won’t be as awesome as that time he won the Disneyland Diamond Days Sweepstakes, a surprise road trip would be the ultimate Father’s Day gift he really wants.
Tickets to a Sporting Event
My husband loves hockey and baseball. There are definitely those games he would want to see live without negotiating for little sister to sit still in her stadium seat, but there’s so much joy in watching those moments spent with his girls. Every dad is unique, gift him with game tickets to an event he will appreciate experiencing with his children.
Family Night In
We have a short list of movies my husband is always crossing his fingers our girls will select for family movie nights. The best kind of Father’s Day gifts are the ones you know dads will genuinely appreciate. Pick dad’s favorite family movie, add some popcorn and snacks, and snuggle up for a family movie night.
Daddy’s Spa Day Kit
A spa day kit for Father’s Day is the perfect way to spoil dad while giving him a few personal items he already has on his shopping list. Make it fun and add labels to remind him why these personal items are important for dad like with cologne “because no princess wants a smelly daddy.”
Speaking of personal items, the last thing my husband ever buys himself is underwear. He has never told me he needs to restock his drawer but I occasionally do the upgrading on my own. This year we are gifting my husband comfort with Tommy John’s Go Anywhere Boxer Briefs. I’m loving the Tommy John message, “When you’re uncomfortable, we’re all uncomfortable.” Gift the gift of comfort with Tommy John.
Whatever you choose to do to celebrate fatherhood, make sure you do it with a Father’s Day gift dads really want.
Do your children look forward to doing something special for their dad on Father’s Day too?
