Clubs of America | Jun 11, 2014
Father’s Day celebrations are cherished times among families big and small. But if you have not yet made a purchase for your dear dad, these must-haves make for perfect gifts for the old man. To give thanks to the man who raised you, stood by your side and maybe even walked you down the aisle, provide a comprehensive experience complete with all the essentials.
Dads often want to be reminded of the simpler days when you and your siblings were young. Look for some nostalgic food items to recall those days gone by. Father’s Day gifts can include popcorn in old-fashioned containers, ice cream pops that the two of you used to eat together and some food finds that have almost vanished into obscurity in recent years. You could put together a timeline indicating different moments in your life to really surprise Dad.
Some New Brews
Beer is a staple in the lives of many men. Look into getting a case of your father’s favorite to enjoy at a Father’s Day barbecue. This outing could be an excellent time to try some different beers. You could even make a day trip to the local brewery out of it. For grown children looking to really celebrate their father this year, set up a beer tasting event in your own home and provide plenty of matching snacks to go with the samples.
The Ball Game
If your dad is a major sports fan, let this passion guide your Fathers Day gifts. Purchasing tickets to any event that the entire family can attend is one possibility. Bring the ballpark experience home by purchasing foods typically sold at the games and setting up a television outside to help create a similar vibe without having to spend a lot of money or leaving your home.
Comfort is Key
Above all else, you want dad to relax. He spends a lot of time attending to chores around the house, making sure the yard looks perfect and raising your younger siblings who still live at home. For those planning to host the event outdoors, have a back-up plan in case the weather conditions aren’t the best. Nobody wants to cancel Father’s Day on account of rain. Look into purchasing a comfortable outdoor couch and ottoman so that he can just put his feet up and bask in all the comforts of the day.
From the food to the ambiance, you can work to make this Father’s Day extra special for your first best friend.
