Whether it’s Father’s Day, a Birthday or Christmas gift, the Dads who have it all can be hard to buy for! If your finding yourself a little stuck on this occasion, and don’t want to resort to your usual socks or gift card routine, here come a few ideas that might win you some Dad points.
If your Dad is a lover of beer, why not check out some of your local brewery options to see if there are any tours available in your area. Not much beats learning some boozy facts while sampling some really beautiful beers (and sometimes cuisines) depending on your package. It’s the perfect excuse to invite yourself along too, for you wouldn’t want to let Dad drink alone, would you!
Taking a cookery class can be a great day out for Dads to show off their cooking skills (or learn some -to your benefit)! Plenty of cooking classes are themed via country so perhaps learning to make Italian or Spanish dishes could prove to be a fun and delicious day out? For those who prefer an experience to a material gift that they can keep, this might be a great idea.
When it comes to gifts for dad sometimes it’s all about something homemade. If your Dad’s a little sentimental, or into art, he might appreciate something you made yourself. It doesn’t have to be a huge item that’s difficult to make; homemade cards or framed photographs are great to keep your memories close and decorate the walls with. If you’re the crafty type, this should come pretty naturally, and if not, have a look at the beautiful homemade crafts on Etsy to inspire you.
For all the music fans out there, you’ll know that great feeling you get when you’re counting down the days to go and see you’re favourite band! All the better if it’s a surprise gift from a loved one. If you can’t find a band that you know your Dad is into, locally or nearby, why not take a chance and book something new that the two of you might enjoy together? (If he complains, just remind him that it was either this or another pair of socks)!
Throw a dinner party
Dinner parties amongst family and friends can be an excellent and thoughtful gift for a loved one, what with all that home cooking and preparation. With a little planning, you can make a great night of it. Carefully plan a menu to suit your Dad’s taste, then invite all your friends and family. Make sure that you decorate the house and even make a playlist that suits the guests. There’s nothing better than quality time over dinner and drinks with the people you care about.
Sometimes it’s hard to choose the perfect gift and overthinking it can make things even worse! However, if you take a little risk and choose something that thinks outside the box- you might be pleasantly surprised.
