Maybe another money clip?
The standard Father’s Day gifts haven’t really changed much since the 1950s. It’s time for a change.
Here is a list of Father’s Day gifts that won’t sit in a closet right next to all the rest:
Skydiving – Throughout the country, there are companies that will take Dad up in a plane and throw him out – attached to licensed tandem skydiver and a parachute. It’s the experience of a lifetime and surprisingly less expensive than you might think. With the advent of small video cameras, like phones and small cameras, the entire experience can be recorded as well.
If literally being hooked to another man seems like it might be weird for dad, don’t worry. You falling through the sky. There are a few inches between the two of you.
Fishing trips – Take Dad fishing someplace he’s never been before. If Dad normally does fly fishing on a river, take him out to the ocean for some shore fishing. If his thing is shore fishing, try a trip to the Great Lakes to see what an inland, freshwater sea looks like.
Fishing is a favorite pastime for millions of people and it can be a great chance to sit with Dad and get to know him on a personal level. And it doesn’t need to be expensive. Sometimes, just looking for a new spot or even going to a new river can let Dad know that you’re thinking about him.
Customer car mats – At Have Faith Boutique, we have car mats that you can customize to say anything you want. You can go for the ever-cheesy, “World’s Greatest Dad,” or even put the lyrics of his favorite driving song on them.
With front and back car mats, you can make something that is uniquely his that he can see and smile about every day of the year. Best of all, you’re are guaranteed that no one else has the same thing.
Coffee gifts – Most dads drink coffee, but many of them have never taken the time to really elevate their coffee drinking beyond a trip to Starbucks. Here’s a coffee idea that you can put together yourself:
A porcelain-coated steel camp mug – Because it’s just so manly.
A French press – Ground coffee + boiling water = great coffee. Nothing fancy.
Good coffee – No flavored stuff. Just get a great coffee like a Sumatra or Jamaican.
That’s it. With those ingredients, so simple and honest, dad can have coffee even in the midst of the zombie apocalypse.
Think outside the (tie) box and get dad something that is really unique and totally fun.
