Dads deserve a special day designated to celebrate them as fathers and dudes. Father’s Day is the perfect opportunity to shower dad with love and gratitude, while giving him some much-needed relaxation too. In fact, much of what dads could use on Father’s Day reminds us a lot of what moms often get on Mother’s Day.
Today we’re sharing Father’s Day gift ideas that remind you of Mother’s Day…but with a manly twist. Check these out for inspiration when selecting the perfect gift for the dads in your life:
Flowers: Real men can appreciate a beautiful bouquet of flowers. While you may not select pinks roses for your guy, you can certainly create a vibrant and masculine bouquet using bold colors and the right flower choices. Use a base of thick green leaves of twigs rather than baby’s breath or other more delicate stems. Alternatively, potted cactus plants, bamboo or bonsai trees are a masculine take on the traditional floral bouquet.
Spa Pampering: Guys can use some pampering too. Book a deep tissue massage, luxurious facial and shave experience, or a foot massage for dad for some much needed relaxation on his special day. He’ll surely appreciate the time to himself and feel refreshed and ready for the rest of his celebratory day.
Homemade Gifts: Just like moms, dads love getting homemade cards and gifts from their kids. Work with your children to make Father’s Day cards, paint pottery or make a special craft that dad can display. This interactive experience for your kids will be fun and give them a sense of pride in giving dad something beautiful they have created from the heart.
Breakfast in Bed: Usually designated for moms, breakfast in bed is a terrific treat for dad on Father’s Day. Let dad sleep in while you and the kids whip up his favorite breakfast. Make it fun for everyone by decorating the meal for dad. If you’re making pancakes, cut out a big “D” for dad or make a silly face on his waffle using fruit for the facial features. When it’s ready, everyone can hop in bed with dad to watch him enjoy the feast.
Framed Photos: Proud dads love showing off their adorable kids and beautiful family. Frame a few of your family’s best photos for him to display in his office or on his bedside table. This will bring smiles to his face time and time again.
Grooming Products: Sweet-smelling lotions, perfumes and glam products are usually associated with gifts for mom, but masculine grooming products make a great gift for dad too. Look for a kit of products that you think the dad in your life will enjoy that may include body lotion, shave gel, cologne and hair gel.
Date Night with Mom: Wine and dine your guy just like you’d like to be treated. Plan a special date night as a gift from mom to dad. He’ll certainly enjoy the adult time and it will give you time to reconnect as a couple. After all, isn’t that how he become a father in the first place?
We hope these Father’s Day gift ideas will satisfy all the dads on your list. Remember, dads want many of the same things as moms so when in doubt, think about what you would want. Just add a manly spin and he’ll be thrilled on his big day.
