Father’s Day is an annual celebration of fathers and the contributions they make to their families. Dads get their due on Father’s Day, when sons, daughters, and wives typically give dad a few gifts to show their appreciation for all he does for them.
Finding the right Father’s Day gift is not always easy. No two fathers are the same. While a silk necktie might bring a smile to one father’s face, such a gift may fall flat with other dads.
By asking themselves a few questions in the weeks before their dads’ big day, Father’s Day shoppers can narrow down their options and find gifts that Dad will appreciate.
Here are the four questions to ask before heading out to pick the perfect gift:
What are Dad’s hobbies? Even if your father or husband loves what he does for a living, a gift that indulges one of his favorite hobbies may be just the thing!
What does Dad need? Sometimes the best gifts are what a recipient needs, as opposed to what he wants. Maybe Dad needs some new tools or maybe even a few new pieces of clothing.
What does Dad want? For the Dad who doesn’t seem to need anything, consider something he may want that he’s never had before. Something like tickets to see his favorite sports team or maybe his favorite band.
Is Dad a techie? Dads with a love for technology are living in the golden age for gadgets. Consider buying Dad a gadget he has been “itching” to get!
Finding the right Father’s Day gift can be challenging. But shoppers who stop to think about their father and what makes him happy can unearth a host of gift ideas that Dad is sure to love!
