Father's Day Gift Ideas
Lifestyle Expert Amy Sewell showed us great gift ideas you an get just in time for Father's Day.
Wood Wall Art – Most of us have hundreds if not thousands of pictures on our phones, tablets and computers – so many that we hardly remember what is there. Get Dad’s favorite photos out of the computer and out where people can enjoy them with a pictogram from Shutterfly. It’s great for a collage of favorite family or travel photos, and guys will love the masculine look from the beauty of the wood grain that shines through the pictures.
Personalized iPad Case – Another way to showcase favorite photos is with a customized black leather iPad case. Since Dad always has his tablet with him, he will have family photos close at hand. Highlight one photo or several on a sleek case from TinyPrints.
Skin Care Products – Speaking of photos, with cameras seemingly everywhere, men are starting to pay more attention to skin care and how they look. Women have always done this, using sunscreen and anti-aging products, and guys are realizing they need protection from the sun and early signs of aging as well. However, a lot of dads are not “product” guys and are wary of using anything that seems too cosmetic. A new collection from PC4Men includes face wash, moisturizers and shave products that are fragrance-free and simply leave his skin feeling fresh and clean.
Chocolates - Guys like chocolate, too, but don’t be boring when picking out a gift. Instead of a standard box of chocolates, Edward Marc has a trio of white, milk or dark chocolates that look like golf balls! Whimsical individual chocolates shaped like baseball gloves, guitars, motorcycles, footballs or airplanes are another fun way to honor his interests.
His-tory Book - Highlight memories from the year Dad was born with a personalized book from The Washington Post available at RedEnvelope. The book recounts the biggest moments in news from the year he was born; you can even add a personalized dedication page to make it extra special.
“A Father’s Legacy” and “A Grandfather’s Legacy” Journals – Nothing says “I love you” more than telling Dad or Grandpa that you want to know more about him. This memory journal, designed in a 12-month format, asks Dad or Grandpa to answer 12 questions each month about family history, childhood memories, dreams, adventures, etc. It’s a great way to connect and encourage wonderful conversations among family. Most online book retailers sell these journals.
