10 Ways to Love Dad on Fathers Day

Father’s Day is just around the corner. If you haven’t thought up some magical gift or experience for Dad, Papa, Pops, Daddy, or whatever name you call him, this is the time to figure out what you’re getting that awesome man in your life! Well, I thought I’d help you out with some ideas, so here goes:

Amusement Park Trip

If your dad is a thrill seeker, a trip to the amusement park will bring a smile to his face. Ride some thrilling rollercoasters together and binge on greasy park food. It will be a day he always remembers. If you’re in Southern California, Six Flags has launched their new virtual reality rollercoaster, which promises to be an exciting experience.

Bottle Cap Fishing Lures

Every dad loves homemade gifts, and if he loves to fish, this gift will be perfect. Using beer bottle caps, make him some DIY fishing lures. The kids can even customize the lures.  

Baseball Tickets

It’s baseball season. A perfect gift for the baseball lover in the family is tickets to a major game. If possible, splurge for some of the best seats at the baseball game. These include the first few rows of the lower level directly behind the dugout and the lower level seats clear of the protective net. They make for an awesome view of the game.  

Personalized Tavern Mugs

Personalized gifts are always a lovely idea. For those who love an iced cold beer, a set of personalized tavern mugs is a fantastic Father’s Day gift. Pair those with a six-pack of customized label beers with his name on them for a real kick!

Homemade Hot Sauce Kits

Men love hot sauce. Giving Dad his own kit to make his own sauce will be a fun, learning experience. He can experiment with the hotness and flavor. Just be ready to try his creations!

Beer Brewing Kit

There is a variety of beer brewing kits on the market. Regardless of which one you pick, your dad is sure to have lots of fun brewing some concoctions! You can select from an assortment of flavors and types of beer.

Game Used Hockey Puck Bottle Opener

If he is a hockey fan, this is sure to be a winner. Hunt for a beer bottle opener made from a real hockey puck used in a game. You can select your favorite NHL league team.

Tee Time

If you really want to splurge on dad, book him a tee time at a fancy golf club, preferably one with a spa, a butler, a private bungalow and the works! You can round the day off with a posh dinner.

If he works while sitting at a desk, this thermometer, designed by Galileo, will spice up his office. It is beautiful, functional and a great conversation piece. Galileo discovered that the density of liquid changes based on temperature and glass liquid-filled balls would move based on the temperature. So, for the science lover, this will sure to make him happy.

Popcorn and Movie Night Kit

Why not make Father’s Day a family night? Get the kids to make a popcorn and movie night kit including a variety of popcorn flavors and beverages. Let dad pick the movie and cuddle on the couch together.

Vintage Baubles

Stop the presses - I have a bonus idea! If your dad is fashion-forward or stylish, you could get him a unique vintage tie embellished with Swarovski crystals, or a pair of repurposed vintage earrings made into exquisite cufflinks! Handmade by ALUXE, up-cycled items are repurposed; forgotten treasures are recreated into pieces that are spotlighted and given a new life, creating a collection of new-vintage luxury accessories.

Whether you want to give memories or thoughtful gifts, there is something for every dad. This, of course, is by no means a complete list – what fun gifts have you given Dad in the past, or planning on giving Dad this year? Share some of your ideas with us!
