Father’s Day comes once a year on a day in June. For those of you wondering just why it is that our nation sets aside a special day for fathers, let’s put this in perspective. To begin with, if it weren’t for some random guy named Dad, you wouldn’t be here! When you really stop and think about it, it’s no laughing matter. After all, some guy named Dad cared enough about your future existence to marry your Mom and then hang around for 18 years while you grew from an embryo to an infant to a bratty teenager to a full grown adult. That’s quite some commitment, and a lot of time, money, and effort. Parenting is a two partner project, and it’s only natural to celebrate both partners alike.
So, the Fathers get their own day, each and every year, on June 16. Father’s Day means a great many things to a great many people. But most of us will agree that Father’s Day means the day in which you celebrate your Dad’s existence. Father’s Day is the day you bring your Dad a little gift. It’s the day we all say “Thank you for being there, Dad! Thanks for everything you did, and for just being you!” In this day and age of rampant divorce and parental abandonment, it’s more important than ever to pay our due tribute to the fathers who took the time and made the major commitment simply to Be There. There aren’t as many of such noble warriors as you might imagine.
Does Dad really want a gift for Father’s Day, or can you safely ignore it? Naturally, we don’t know the secret wishes and inclinations of every Dad in America. Some do, some don’t. But we’re pretty well sure that, even if your Dad doesn’t make a big deal out of the holiday (or any holiday for that matter, especially his birthday!), your Dad will certainly appreciate receiving some small trinket and token of your affection. Just don’t get all soppy and mushy about it! Ger Dad something useful, like a tool, or a sports memento, or something of the sort. In the end, it’s the gesture that really counts. Your Dad is sure to be very glad that you care enough about him to get him anything at all!
Choosing The Right Father’s Day Gift
No doubt, it can sometimes be quite difficult to choose the correct Father’s Day gift for your Dad. Fathers can be picky about what gifts they like and don’t like. Some Dads are very vocal with their opinions. Others affect a facade of “not caring” at all about holidays. Some Dads really don’t care, while others are just making a pretense of such cavalier unconcern. You’ve really got to know your father’s character well before you make a decision as to whether or not to purchase a Father’s Day gift for them. And, in the end, isn’t it better to simply err on the side of tradition? Let’s face it, no one turns down a free gift! And your Dad will always appreciate the gesture you extend to him.
Is it even possible to choose the wrong Father’s Day gift for your Dad? Well, certainly we don’t recommend buying him sexy lingerie or a set of bath soaps and perfumes! Some common sense is the obvious deciding factor here. After all, he’s already proved his masculine identity by becoming your Father in the first place! If you do end up with the wrong set of gifts for him, it’s more of a faux pas then a tragedy. Simply save the receipts, and let him return the gifts you’ve bought. He can easily exchange them for others which are more to his liking. In the end, if nothing else, you’ve given him a ticket for free stuff, and he certainly won’t turn that down. It’s the gesture that counts!
So, the key is to choose gifts which are appropriate to his age group, as well as his range of interests and hobbies. Below we’ve highlighted many different classes of dads, along with gift ideas for dads in each of those classes. Is your dad an Adventurer or a Gamer? Take a look below to see if we’ve got a class that fits your dad, then check out its associated gift ideas to get him a gift he’s sure to love!
