Father’s Day is almost here. It is time to show the special men in our lives just how much we care. We should buy for our own fathers, our grandfathers, our father-in-law’s and we can’t forget our husbands (the father of our own children). But what can we buy for all these men on Father’s Day? It can be difficult to decide what to buy for men. But if you use your imagination, you can buy a perfect present for each of those special men in your life on Father’s Day.
First, think about each man separately. Just like every woman is unique, so is every man. You should shop depending upon their own individual hobbies and likes. Please whatever you do, don’t buy another tie for Father’s Day, unless the guy is into collecting ties (and I haven’t met that guy yet).
Lets start with some hobby type gifts for Father’s Day.
Does the man like sports?
Most men likes one sport or another sport. Some men like all sports. This makes shopping for Father’s Day a bit easier. Do you know his favorite team or player? You can buy some nice collectables? But if you know he all ready has too many or if his wife thinks he does, lets skip that idea. Does this man like to go to sporting events? This gives you lots of choices; a new stadium cushion for sitting (those seats can be murder), a new thermos for those chilly nights or hot evenings, a new pair of binoculars for close viewing, or if money isn’t an issue maybe you could even buy a season worth of tickets.
How about a subscription to his favorite sports magazine. There are fishing magazines, boating magazines, and just plain sporting magazines that covers the whole genre.
Is he active in sports himself? Golf, tennis, fishing? Maybe you could buy him some lessons, some new equipments, balls, manuals on the sport he loves, golf clubs, rackets, fishing rods, nets, etc. The choices depends on the sport. If the sport is golf the price tag may be higher. If the sport is fishing you may be able to find some lower price items he would love. You can even buy golf hats and fishing caps for the kids to give. Those are usually inexpensive.
Would you like to see the man in question more active? If he is able, how about a membership to a gym?
Is the man filled with stress? Some men likes massages, too? Maybe some gift certificates for some back massages would be nice. If you do this, you should note most men are comfortable with only female massage therapist.
If the man in question isn’t sport savvy, maybe some new software for his computer would be more suitable.
What about a subscription to a service like Netflicks? All men love to watch movies. If he had his own subscription he would have a chance to watch what he wants, without bugging the wife.
Do you know any of his favorite old television shows? Many of the old favorites are out on DVD in collection series. Those are always nice on hot, rainy summer days.
Then there are the fathers who love to do the summer grilling? Maybe he could use some new grilling utensils.
If you think about the father in question, you will have no problem coming up with something he will love for Father’s Day. If asked, he will probably tell you he all ready has what he wanted most, his family.
