“Dad: A son’s first hero, a daughter’s first love.” —Unknown

Before we get to the list, I thought it would be a nice tribute to our fathers to talk a little bit about what being a father means and their importance in our lives. Whether yours is your biological father, stepfather, adoptive father, or a positive male role model in your life, they have a great deal to offer.

Fathers can be very protective. He is our bodyguard and defender of evil. We learn at an early age that the world is full of danger and we need to be careful. But until we understand it better, he is there to watch over us and keep us out of harm’s way.

He is our teacher. Dads teach us so many things. He teaches how to be respectful by showing respect to others. He also teaches us that there are consequences for the choices we make and not all of them are good. In essence, he is teaching us that we should consider the more important choices carefully.

Fathers are good listeners. They don’t just hear what we say, they listen. Mothers are good listeners too, but dads typically can keep the emotions out of the conversation and be more objective than mom. Sometimes, it can be a matter of the father/son, mother/daughter dynamics that make one parent the go-to person when you need to talk. In addition, fathers always seem to have good advice.

It has been my experience that fathers are naturally playful. My husband is very playful, and I always enjoyed hanging out with my uncles because they were so much fun. Even as a girl, I enjoyed roughhousing with them, going fishing, or just hanging out.

Fathers can be very affectionate. But most dads show affection differently than moms. While mom can easily express her love towards her children with words, dad will typically show his affection in other ways. They show their affection with the things they do such as helping with a school project, helping with homework, or just hanging out together.

Many fathers are the breadwinners in their households. Most of us look to the man of the house to provide financial stability. Financial stability is necessary because it provides a sense of security knowing that you will be able to pay your bills and put food on the table.

No matter how busy our fathers are, they always seem to make time for us. He may work long hours, but he still makes it to our sports and school activities, take us camping, or even just watch our favorite show with us. The bottom line is that he makes the time for us. Not just like a child, but during our adult lives as well.

Fathers are encouraging. They support us in all areas of our lives. Whether it is getting good grades, starting a new job, or starting a family. He just wants us to be happy.

Father’s Day Gift Ideas

  1. Personalized cooler. This is a great idea for the dad that frequently attends sporting events or other outdoor activities.
  2. Engraved watch. Watches are always a nice gift. Getting the watch engraved adds that extra special touch.
  3. Pint glass. Find a nice pint glass with the logo of his favorite sports team that he can show off to his pals.
  4. Docking station. If your dad is leaving his stuff all over the house and can never seem to find his keys, you really need to get him a docking station. He will then have one central location for his phone, tablet, keys, etc.
  5. Barbecue set. Is your dad a grill master? Consider a personalized grill set. Then get some steaks and enjoy the day. 
  6. Everyone needs a wallet, right? Maybe the one your dad has seen better days. It may be a really good time to find him a replacement.
  7. Monogrammed Tie. I know, I know, ties may be overdone. Get him a monogrammed tie along with a nice tie clip, and I bet he will love it.

  11. This list would not be complete without tools. Has he been wanting to replace some? Did he lose one? Is there a type of tool he has been wanting but never bought? Now would be a great time to buy him one.                          
  12. Golf accessories. If your dad is a golfer, divot tools, a golf towel, balls, markers, golf head covers, and tees will come in handy. You can never have enough golf balls or tees. I can’t tell you how many times my golf balls have ended up in the water or lost in the trees. But your dad is probably a much better golfer than I am.
  13. A bottle of his favorite alcoholic beverage. Scotch, whiskey, vodka, whatever it is, find him a premium bottle and toast the occasion.
  14. Portable grill. This gift will come in handy when tailgating. Don’t forget to bring along the personalized cooler (refer to item #1)
  15. Zero gravity chair. If you have never lounged in a zero-gravity chair, you don’t know what you are missing. They are great for spine health and can help improve circulation. But most of all, they are so comfortable that you may not want to get out of them.
  16. Travel mug. Travel mugs are great when you commute to work or take a road trip.
  17. A nice box of cigars makes a fantastic gift for the dad who enjoys a good stogie.
  18. Jersey, tee, or sweatshirt of his favorite sports team.
  19. Electric razor. Maybe your father has been talking about getting the latest model our maybe his current electric razor needs to be replaced. Either way, this is another good gift idea.
  20. Personalized coffee mug. For those coffee-drinking dads, you can never have too many coffee cups. Trust me, I know.
  21. Books. If your dad loves to read, consider getting a book from one of his favorite authors. Might I suggest Baseball’s Top 100: The Game’s Greatest Records If you are looking for a book for your youngster to give to dad, Just Me and My Dad by Mercer Mayer is a great choice. 

You may also be interested in these books on personal development, how-to, and other miscellaneous books. Take a look.

22. Gourmet coffee. Consider getting some gourmet coffee to put in that personalized coffee mug (refer to item #20)

23. Money clip. When your dad would rather use a money clip than a wallet, why not get him a new one. Make it special by having his initials engraved on it.

24. Cuff links. Cuff links just aren’t the same when you only have one. Maybe your dad could use an extra set.

25. Phone case. There are so many different styles of phone cases. Find one that says “dad” to you and give it to him this year.

26. Ballcap. Consider getting your dad a ballcap with his favorite sports team’s logo on it. Maybe he already has one, but it is a little tattered. This is the perfect time to find him a replacement.

27. Subscription to the beer of the month club. Beer lover? Is there anything more to say?

28. Make his favorite meal. Some fathers are the main meal preparers in their households. Maybe this would be a good time to return the favor.

29. Framed photo for office or den. Find a photo that you think he will really like and give it to him in a nice frame.

30.Autographed print of a favorite sports player or other celebrity. This is also perfect for the den or office.

Not everyone is fortunate enough to have a father in their lives. Maybe he was never around, or maybe he wasn’t around for as long as we would have liked. I have been subjected to both scenarios. My father was not always in my life. We were reunited when I was 19 years old. We got to know each other, and he became an important part of my life.

Unfortunately, he was taken away from me when he died of cancer. With that being said, I am truly grateful that he was a part of my life. And even though we did not have much time together, we had some good times and he taught me many things. For those of you who are in similar situations, I think it is important, that on Father’s Day, we take the time to reflect on our fondest memories of dad and the love that was shared.

For those of you who are fortunate enough to still have your father in your life, don’t take him for granted. Cherish every moment that you have together.
