Father’s Day became a national holiday in 1972, when President Richard Nixon signed it into law. The third Sunday of every June, fathers are celebrated and honored. It is traditional to give your father a gift on this special day. Forward these foolproof gift ideas to your grown-up kids who are statistically the most likely to forget, or think that they can get away with giving a gift card.
Loved by Dads everywhere is:
#5 – Tools. Every Dad likes to fix stuff, or at least pretend he can fix stuff. Get the man some seriously modern, heavy duty tools – including a roll of duct tape and a staple gun.
#4 – Sports. You can’t go wrong with a new golf club, tickets to a favorite sports team game or a subscription to a premium 24/7 sports TV channel.
#3 – Adventure. Let Dad plan a weekend road trip. You foot the bill for the sleek sports car or off-road SUV he wants to rent. (A red stapler makes a great traveling buddy!)
#2 – Food. Mostly self-explanatory. If you want to think big picture buy a new grill, a mini fridge for the man cave, or a top-of-the-line knife set.
#1 – Gadgets. Outdoorsy Dads, Businessman Dads and everyone in between can find the fun in gadgets. The Swingline™ Stack-and-Shred™ Shredder topped many online gift idea lists both this year and last year. Fancy fishing poles, tablet computers and robots (think Roomba & remote control car starters) are also pretty awesome.
