Dads typically work hard to provide for their family. They’re usually the ones to give their daughters their first bike. They’re the ones who teach their sons valuable life lessons. They’re the ones who raise their children up right and ready for the real world.
If you have a dad like that, then you’re one of the lucky ones. Father’s Day is a great time to pay your dad back for all his hard work and to show him how much you love him.
Aside from the usual greeting and personal messages, you can buy your dad something that he’ll like, something like these:
Most elder statesmen and gentlemen of class prefer their alcohol refined, their spirits polished. Liquor like whiskey and wine suits sophisticated tastes, which your dad may have or may develop later in his life. For such fine preferences, you may want to present a decanter for your papa.
Decanters refine any spirit contained within it, allowing any alcohol poured into it to “breathe” a bit. The other use for them is for appearances. Most alcohol bottles have dark glass, making it hard to see the liquor inside and its lovely color. Polish goes hand in hand with good taste, so when a drink is contained in a decanter, which typically uses clear glass, the full beauty of the alcohol is clear for everyone to admire, thus elevating the taste of the drink.
Besides, wine and similar caliber spirits are good for one’s health. They decrease the chance of getting heart disease. So pour a glass for your old man and drink to his health.
Another classy gift you can give your dad is a dapper headpiece. A regular sports cap won’t do. Up the ante with a carbon fiber hat. Yes, you read that right. A hat made of the same material as that of a sports car, and because of that, these hats intrinsically have a modern design that’ll make your dad look in vogue.
If your father isn’t into baseball caps, there are two other options: a fedora and a cowboy hat for when he wants to live out his Westworld fantasies. Both are still made of carbon fiber.
Forgetting one’s car or house keys is common for many people, but as a person gets older, their memory lapses may become more frequent. In that case, a lock pick gun can be a practical gift for your dad in case he’s prone to misplacing his keys.
This tool doesn’t require any specialized training, so your dad can use it whenever he gets locked out of his car or house. Just be sure that carrying a lock pick gun is legal in your jurisdiction. You don’t want your pop to be put behind bars (though lock picks would be useful for breaking out of jail).
For techie fathers out there, an external SSD can be a great gift for them. External SSDs don’t require any complicated installation. They’re a plug-‘n’-play type of hardware, so your dad will find it easy in attaching one to their MacBook. External SSDs are portable too.
Regular Macs usually only have an HDD (hard disk drive), which, although cheaper, isn’t as efficient and as fast as an SSD. Just by getting your pop an SSD will make their MacBooks run better, and they will no longer experience any lag in their system.
If your papa grew up in the ‘70s, ‘80s, or ‘90s, then he lived through the arcade infancy era of video gaming, and chances are, he was an avid gamer at one point in his life. Maybe life’s responsibilities took away his time for gaming, or maybe he diverted his budget for gaming to paying for your education. Either way, now’s the best time for you to ignite his passion again.
Give them a powerful gaming PC so they can play games to their heart’s content. Besides, retirement is boring. It’s the perfect time for an old gamer to play through their backlog of games.
Love Your Dad
These are just ideas on what to give your dad on Father’s Day. There are many other cool treats that your dad may like.
