6 Creative Gift Ideas for Father’s Day

Father’s Day is the perfect time to show your dad just how much you appreciate him. Unfortunately, shopping for dear old dad isn’t always the easiest feat. While you can go the usual route and get your father a box of his favorite candies or that watch he’s had his eye on, giving him something creative is sure to have a longer lasting impression and be more fun for everyone.

Check out six creative Father’s Day gift ideas below, perfect for showing dad just how much he means to you.

Offer to Wash His Car for Him

As much as we all enjoy having a clean car, we don’t always enjoy having to actually get out and cleaning it. Give your dad a care package full of car cleaning supplies and then surprise him by putting them to use. Looking for some car wash tips? Click here.

Make a Donation to His Favorite Charity

Is your dad particularly socially conscious or passionate about a cause? Sometimes the best gift is having the ones you love support the things you care about. If he has a favorite organization, make a donation in your dad’s name. If your dad doesn’t necessarily have a favorite organization but has a cause he is passionate about, then look for notable organizations that operate within that cause and make a donation in his name. This gift idea is perfect for dads who appreciate thoughtfulness above all else.

Make Him His Favorite Meal

Today’s all about dad! Invite him over for dinner and cook up his favorite dinner and dessert. If you have siblings, ask them to get in on the fun too and really go all out. If the weather is nice,  take the party outside and use it as an opportunity to enjoy the summer season. Consider making extra portions of everything so that dad has leftovers to enjoy over the next couple of days!

Offer to Pay His Car Insurance for the Month

Does your dad value practicality? Then offer to pay his car insurance bill for the month. Make a homemade coupon for the gesture and pair it with a new tool that he’s been looking to add to his toolkit.

Plan an Outing

When is the last time you and your dad went to see a movie together or went bowling? If your dad enjoys the great outdoors, then invite him to go on a hike with you at the nearest state or national park. If you’re feeling adventurous then you may also consider a round of fishing or maybe even a white water rafting session. Invite the entire family to tag along and you’re sure to make memories that will last a lifetime!

Make Something Special

If one thing holds true it’s this: parents never fail to appreciate a homemade gift. Check out Pinterest for ideas on how to get crafty this Father’s Day and make dad something he can cherish forever. Is your dad also a grandpa? Consider making him a collage of photographs including photos from his childhood, your childhood and  those of your children. Do you have old VHS tapes of home movies that have been collecting dust on a shelf? Have them converted to a digital format and re-gift them to your dad. He (and mom!) are sure to love this idea and it will be fun for you all to re-watch the videos together.

As difficult as it may seem at times to come up with a gift idea for dad, the good news is you can’t go wrong so long as you’re being thoughtful. Use the holiday as an opportunity to get creative and show dad just how much he means to you.
