What Should I Get Dad?

Jun 12, 2008
Father's Day is that special chance to tell Dad just how much he means to you. Remember the time he tried to teach you to throw a ball? Or how about your first time riding a bike? Or for just being there when you needed him, a couple of bucks tucked into your jeans or that special look he would give to just you.

Yes, fathers are very special people. That's why this year you can honor him with a thoughtful present that shows just how much you appreciate him. He is a very unique individual, show him you can match a present to his personality.

A watch from Fossils can make him look and feel special. He'll remember your thoughtfulness every time he checks the time. Or maybe you want a nifty shirt that will make him feel spiffy all over.

Something from Yardiac for his garden might do the trick. Live plants have a way of giving and giving, especially if you can eat them at harvest! Gazebos and ponds give the gift of serenity and calm.... or maybe you want to select something whimsical for his yard. Everything garden and things you didn't even know you needed for the garden can be found here.

BestBuy has some wonderful gift ideas. You may want to get him a gift card to let him choose something special himself, or take advantage of the bargains in the outlet center and wrap up that gizmo that he really wants, like a dvd player. For the electronically challenged something simple like a great radio might make him smile from ear to ear.

There is a superman style shirt for your super dad or a supeman dogtag on a lighter budget, or any of the Warner Bros. characters that he likes are available at the Looney Tunes Shop. Hats, jackets, boxers and so many more items that can have the cartoon champion in him come out and shine!

The StubHub has a bunch of tickets to his favorite sporting events like baseball, fights and soccer, to name just a few. There are also tickets for concerts, theatre, and exclusive events. This would be a very easy gift to wrap also, not that you wouldn't want to wrap but just in case you're package challenged.

Have you considered giving him a credit card? Discover has 0% APR and cash back on purchases... Something he could really use for whatever he wants. If your dad is like mine, you may need to show him how to use it the first couple of times so he can get used to it. A perfect excuse to go out with him to places you both could enjoy and pay for on his new card.

My personal favorite is food. At Home Bistro you can have him dining gourmet and all he has to do is boil water! They have a nice selection of chef-prepared meals that go from freezer to table in ten minutes. Even mom could appreciate this and, after all, dad wouldn't be dad without mom! Have him eat gourmet without leaving the house or needing to tip a waiter, unless he wants to give mom a peck on the cheek.

Send him packing! Take advantage of huge discounts to Sandals, or many travel destinations through Travelocity. You could spend a little or a lot on him here... just a hotel nite or up to a full cruise really allows any budget to take advantage of this idea.

If youre really on a tight budget, why not try a free greeting card from Gifttree? It won't cost you a cent to show you remembered him on his special day. Dads make an easy gift target. They will appreciate any little, or great, token of your love for them.

I hope these ideas prove useful to you this Father's Day. He is special, do a little something special for him.
