Fathers are considered the pillar of every family. Their main mission is to take care of their family, protect them, and provide them with the best possible living conditions. Their task is also to selflessly give love to their loved ones, to teach children to ride a bicycle, to comfort them when they fall and get hurt, to advise them through life, and make them good people.
That is why there is one day a year dedicated to fathers, a day when you will show him in your own way that you appreciate everything he does for you, a day when you will say thank you to him and make him happy with a gift. It does not have to be an expensive thing, it is important that it is chosen with love and that it carries some symbolism. Here are some ideas.
Is your father always late to his office? Does he need a thing that wakes him up sharply? Then give him this magnificent alarm clock. This would stand as a unique father’s gift. As a son, you can give this gift to your father for his early routine of waking up for a walk.
This gift is very practical and will surely be used on many occasions when something needs to be unscrewed, twisted, or tightened. Screwdrivers can be found in various sizes and with different extensions, with magnetic ends and the like. Although most dads probably already have some screwdrivers, you may buy the ones he doesn’t have, and even if he already has them, he will always prefer to use the ones given to him by his son or daughter.
A lounge net that can be hung between two trees in the shade, on which your dad can lie down and take a nap after lunch, is a great gift for any dad who likes his afternoon nap. The net may take up more space and you need to have two trees that are close enough/far enough, but it is worth it because it is great for relaxing, napping, reading, or listening to music. Be sure that this gift will be useful not only to your dad, but also to your mom, siblings, and even you.
The book of love
Collect your favorite family photos, spontaneous ones and those from some special events, and make a “book of love” for your dad. You can create an album with the help of various computer programs that offer a “slideshow”, or opt for a “retro” version of making photos that you will arrange in the album.
Since the day is dedicated to fathers, you should do the same. Surprise your father with a trip. Take him out into nature, fishing, cycling, or walking through the woods. Time spent with the dearest person in the world is priceless, and he will love this gift more than any other.
Today, many stores offer gift cards. If you are not sure what your father’s favorite perfume is, give him this gift, so let him choose for himself. You can also treat him with a massage voucher, to relax and rest at the end of a hard day’s work. An equally good gift is the making of personal vouchers on which you will state, for example, that he has the right to plan an evening gathering or a treat he wants after lunch.

Your dad will like the barbecue set if he likes to greet his guests with a barbecue. Many dads like to entertain their friends and relatives with stories while grilling, so it would be useful for him to have the right instruments. The set can include various kitchen items, spices, gloves, and even an apron on which he will be able to wipe his hands without getting dirty.
A quality shaver is an ideal gift because it is used almost every day. Choose carefully, as your father may prefer a razor. In this case, the rule applies: the more razors, the shave will be better and more comfortable.
For active dads
A bicycle is a great gift that your dad can use to engage in physical activity and to be able to go to the store or his friends without starting his car. It doesn’t have to be an expensive, professional bike if your dad doesn’t do it, but it will be enough and cheaper, which you can find in various bicycle and other equipment stores.
A smartwatch that can track your dad’s movements, whether he’s running or walking, so he can compare the distance he walked the day before, a few days earlier, and so on. He can also set a goal for himself on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis, how many steps he wants to take or how many kilometers he wants to cover. This gift is interesting, modern and can help your dad to motivate him to live a healthy life. If we look at it from the health aspect, this gift is very functional because it measures the heart rate, as well as blood pressure.
Personalized gifts are always a good idea because they carry a special message. It can be a T-shirt with an inscription, a coffee cup, a key ring, or anything else where an interesting text or message can be engraved or pasted.
A situation where we are all forced to stay in our homes unless necessary is ideal for strengthening family togetherness and the love we feel for each other. And, of course, love for Dad, who will show the importance of the role of fathers in our society even at this moment. A well-known Austrian psychiatrist said a long time ago: “I can’t think of any stronger need in childhood than the security provided by a father.”
