Lots of people can play the role of Dad in our lives – a person we go to for advice, encouragement, and a lesson on how to change a flat tire. So, when we think of Father’s Day gifts, we like to imagine that you might want to give a lovely thank-you to lots of precious people in your lives – one of whom might even be your biological father.
Whoever’s on your list this Father’s Day, when it comes time to revel in his fatherly glory, we think he deserves something a little extra-special. Come on: there are only so many times you can present him with a tie, sweater or tool kit, dear reader.
On that Sunday in June, especially this year, we think he deserves to feel appreciated and pampered. To help you from gifting him with the same old, same old, we’ve pulled together a fresh round of gift ideas to show him just how much you appreciate all he’s done for you.
No tool kits, no ties, no sweaters. And just one never-fail golfer pick.
From a stylish new pair of shoes to a portable pizza oven and dry martini infused truffles, here are 20 different ways to say “Thanks, Dad.”
