Father’s Day is hopefully a time when the culture says, ‘This is our moment to look at who our men and boys are.’ -Michael Gurian
Father’s Day is coming up this Sunday June 18. Still wondering what to get your dad? Fret not, you are not alone. Shopping for dads is a bit tougher than for mums, considering a bouquet of roses might not be met with as much enthusiasm. Luckily we have a great list of 7 gift ideas suited for every type of dad.
1. The Reader Dad
This dad is known for his love for the written word. If he doesn’t have a copy yet, get him Robert Greene’s Mastery.
Synopsis : Mastery explains how to become a leader in any given field by examining the lives and pathways to success of historical masters such as Mozart, Einstein and Darwin, as well as “living masters” which Greene interviewed—including Paul Graham, Freddie Roach, Santiago Calatrava, Temple Grandin, Yoky Matsuoka, V.S. Ramachandran, Teresita Fernandez, Cesar Rodriguez, and Daniel Everett.
2. The Chill and Cool Dad
We are totally rooting for this Bestway Fast Inflatable Sleeping Banana Air Bag Lazy Sofa Lounge Camping Laybag.
Open the upper pocket mouth and run fast upwind.
Run about 15 feet then close the pocket mouth during running. Do not stop running.
Keep running several feet after closing the pocket mouth. Turn over the bag and repeat the front steps to inflate another one.
Make the pocket edge in the same level.
Roll it as tight as you can.
3. The Sporty Dad
This Fitness Sport Gloves Felt Mitten with Extended Wrister L would be perfect.
Main Features: – They are padded in the palm area, to provide protection to the hand, and the exposed fingers do not interfere with sensation or gripping.
– They have a ventilated back to allow the hands to cool.
– Extended wrister with handy Velcro strap, easy to take on and off.
– Durable material, give your hands the best care.
– It can be worn by motorcyclists to better grip the handlebars, as well as by skateboarders and rollerbladers, to protect the palms of the hands and add grip in the event of a fall.
4. Stylish Dad
How about the Generic Stylish Hat Summer Straw Hat Cap Topee Fedora Trilby Panama Hat Cap Jazz Hat?
This great accessory is made from woven straw, comfortable and durable. It features a pinched crown and curved brim with an inseparable belt decoration with pin buckle. Talk about style.
5. The New Dad
His life is about to take an interesting turn and he will probably be doing a lot of school, family and hospital runs in the future. We highly recommend the WHD Car Back Seat organiser.
This car seat hanging auto organiser ends the dreaded mess in the car!
Hangs from either the passenger seat of your car or from the driver’s seat.
Includes mesh pockets.
The convenient pockets hang close at hand, but out of the way to keep your car clutter-free.
Stuff anything from snacks, cell phones, maps, and more.
6. The Fix-it/Handy Dad
For him, we recommend this Grape Store Exploit 12 Pieces Yellow Tool Box.
This incredibly functional tool box offers a one stop tools solution for home improvement and maintenance. Contents include: one 7″ pliers, one 8″ plastic coated spanner, one 0.25kg Claw hammer, one art design knife, two 6*100 screw drivers, two 6*38 screw drivers, one steel tape, one Blow moulding box. The case included has a dedicated home for every tool contained and is convenient storage.
7. The Tech Dad
He might have the latest iPhone but how about you try him with this functional Generic Heart Rate ID111 Fitness Smart Bracelet.
Why we think he would love it? Smart Bracelet ID111 fitness band is a good sports partner. It can display heart rate, steps, calories, distance. It lets you know your sports data immediately. It can also monitor your sleep.
All of these data can be synced to your smart phone. With adjustable silicon wristband and light weight features, you can wear it and exercise comfortably. It is also a Smartphone companion. When you have calls or SMS, it will vibrate to remind you. You will never miss them, even in the noisy party.
In a word, it is a nice personal companion for you.
