What to Get Dad for Father’s Day 2021? 5 Meaningful Gift Ideas
1. A Cool Set of Grooming & Skin Care Essentials
Who says dads don’t enjoy feeling fresh and brand new? Treat yours to his favourite self-care products.
Here are some grooming & skin care essentials for men:
- Shaving cream;
- after-shave lotion;
- shower gel;
- sunscreen lotion;
- foot file or pumice stone;
- foot exfoliator (check out how to make a natural salt scrub for soft feet and hands);
- and/or foot cream.
After you buy some goodies, arrange them nicely in a basket or wooden box. Of course, you can always find nice gift sets at the drugstore, but it would be more special if you added your personal touch.
2. A Fun Box With His Favourite Snacks.
I cannot tell you how many times I’ve caught my husband sneaking a bag of Mini Ritz to his office. Or finding out that he has a secret stash of peanuts in his drawer!
I can only say dads want to have fun too! So take this opportunity to please your dad’s or husband’s palate!
Does he have a sweet tooth? Or is he more into salty snacks? Do a brainstorm with your children and make a list of the snacks you’ll buy. Then, place them in a cool box or basket and add a thoughtful note.
3. A Mini Home Office Revamp
Does your dad or husband spend endless hours working from home, glued to his chair?
Then it’s time to make him MOVE (for sure!) but also to make sure he’s comfortable. —I see this every day with my husband, but I’m decided to make his work environment more pleasant.—
So, if you also think your dad’s working space can get comfier, this is the moment to do it. Maybe he needs a better chair or lighting, a bigger desk, new office supplies, nice photo frames, or something else.
The point is to make his work days more enjoyable!
4. Supplies for His Favourite Hobby
There are endless hobbies dads enjoy getting lost in for hours. For instance, playing music, cooking and grilling, sports, photography, 3D modelling, reading, woodworking and many others.
But the thing is, sometimes dads abandon their hobbies because they lack the time or the money to spend on them.
So for Father’s Day, surprise your dad with a few supplies for his favourite hobby. Plus, give him a “coupon” to spend time on it. You’ll be giving him a double treat!
5. A Heartfelt Handmade Gift
Nothing says “I love you, dad” better than a gift created by his children or spouse. So use your imagination and talents to craft something unique!
It can be a letter, a cake, a potted plant for his office, cookies (I know my husband would be thrilled to get these), or a personalized frame. The sky is the limit on this one.
