Personalized Gifts For Father's Day
Father’s Day is right around the corner, and so is one of the most dreaded gift decisions of the year. What do you get the man who always says, “I really don’t need anything”? It’s no easy task, but luckily, we’ve got your back.
This year, let’s ditch the mundane tie, the picture frame, the new toolbox, or the convenience store card. Let’s get the dad in your life a more personalized Father’s Day gift that he’ll actually use, and might even get excited about.
To make things easy, we’ve curated a list of our favorite personalized Father’s Day gifts that’ll help jumpstart your search. Whether you want to treat him to a new accessory or get him started on a once-in-a-lifetime adventure, we’ve got a list that’ll make gifting giving a little easier this year (and maybe a little fun).
You know you’ve done something right when your gift is actually used. Far too many Father’s Day gifts sit idle in junk drawers or find their way to the donation pile. One thing that’s sure to be used for years to come is a classic, handcrafted watch.
Not only is a watch a useful and practical Father’s Day gift, it’s also one of the most personal gifts you can give a man. A watch says a lot about who you are and what you like. It’s also often something that gets passed down from generation to generation, making it a gift that keeps on giving.
This personalized Father’s Day gift offers just the right amount of style and utility. No matter who you’re shopping for, countless watch options allow you to find one that suits the dad in your life just right.
Want to take this gift up a notch and really win some points? Make it personal by engraving the watch with a meaningful saying or note, like a simple ‘I love you’ or an inside joke. We launched personalized watch engraving a few years ago specifically for Father’s Day. We thought, what better way to gift a watch than by making it something that’s one-of-a-kind.
A Personalized Video
Another one of our favorite personalized Father’s Day gifts is a video made just for your pops. Ask those closest to him; his kids, best friends, co-workers, spouse, and siblings what their favorite memory of him is, and have them share why they love him so much.
Compile the interviews (you can use an easy video editing software like iMovie) and play the special message for him on Father’s Day. Not only is this a great personalized Father’s Day gift in the moment, but it can also be enjoyed for years to come. Cue the waterworks!
A Day Together
Spending the day together might seem like a cop-out, but in reality, this is one of the best gifts you can give your dad. Our dads spend so much time being selfless for others, so plan a day that’s all about him.
Think about what he loves to do, and make sure the day is stress-free and enjoyable. Whether you two go fishing, grill up a meal together, see a concert, or just watch the game on TV, a day together is the perfect Father’s Day gift for dads that appreciate spending quality time with family. Life gets busy, so sometimes the gift of time can be the most memorable.
A New Experience
For dads that value experiences over all else, giving him a new adventure is the perfect personalized Father’s Day gift. To really hit the mark, think about things your dad loves to do and create a gift around those passions.
For example, if he’s always wanted to learn a foreign language so he can travel to a new country, give him a language learning software, like Rosetta Stone. Or, if he’s always had skydiving on his bucket list, sign him up and cheer him on (we’ll let you decide if you’re brave enough to join). From sailing to mountain biking to flying helicopters, you can find a learning experience for every hobby.
This Father’s Day, think outside of the box and give that dad in your life something he won’t just throw into a junk drawer. Whether you engrave a handcrafted watch or give the gift of trying something new, these personalized Father’s Day gifts will certainly make him feel loved and appreciated - and who knows, you might even surprise him a bit.
