What do dads really, really want on Father’s Day? Cheeky mugs and slippers are so yesterday’s gift, but still great if you enjoy the typical reaction, “oh, how sweet of you”!
If you are looking, however, for a reaction that is epic in nature, keep reading. Remember the phrase “it’s the thought that counts”? Well, these gift ideas are not only thoughtful but practical and memorable to boot! Dad deserves to be treated with the highest of respect so get him that gift he really deserves.
Here are some thoughtful gift ideas that don’t require any extra space in his home but will live long in his heart.
1) Mobile Spa
It may not be the first gift that comes to your mind, but fathers should be pampered just like moms. A gift certificate for one or more in-home massage sessions will be greatly appreciated. At any age, these spa treatments do one a world of good but, as we get older, they become a routine necessity.
2) Memberships & Subscriptions
What a treat for dad when his subscriptions or memberships to his favourite activities are all paid up for the year! Paid subscriptions to magazines, coffee-of-the-month club, meal kit delivery service, or memberships to the gym or museum will tell him just how much you support his activities outside the home.
3) A New Bedsheet Set
You want your father to sleep comfortably, and as summer approaches, a cool bedsheet set will definitely come in handy. Purchasing comfortable and breathable mattress accessories would be a great investment. Opt for moisture-wicking or eco-friendly bamboo sheets.
4) Weekend Retreat
He has been taking a more holistic approach to life and has joined a meditation and yoga center. Inquire when their retreats take place and book him in for a weekend or longer retreat. Encourage his journey.
5) Car or Taxi Service
A gift certificate from his local garage for the usual tune-ups will go a long way and lets him know you care about his safety on the road. If dad doesn’t drive, locate a taxi service that will charge your account every time dad needs a lift.
Any way you slice it, Father’s Day this year will be memorable, not only because of your thoughtful gifts but because of you as well! Angela, Your Sleep Expert
