Your dad’s birthday is approaching? There’s no need to panic; you can buy him some great gifts that he would actually enjoy. I, for one, know that over the years I tried to make him happy with presents that I liked for him, and although he was glad and grateful of my efforts, I know that he could enjoy more something else. So I’ve learned – and this is a general advice, not only for this special occasion, but for all birthdays to come – that you have to pay attention to the celebrated one’s likes and dislikes, not your own. Of course, if you manage to combine the two – your tastes with the person’s you are celebrating – that is the perfect case scenario because it will be a birthday gift that not only he will love, but it will be from you, with your print all over it, which gives it value.
So, let’s see some suggestions for your dad’s birthday gift. You have to look for manly gifts – we girls tend to give to everything a soft touch, and in this kind of cases we have to be cautious.
You can think of an agenda with leather covers (the color shouldn’t be bright, play safe with brown which is a classic or black) where he could make notes and appointments related to his job or family reunions. If your father’s birthday is in summer what could be better than a grill – this way you bring the family together for barbeques when everybody can just hang and have a good time (this could actually be the activity for his birthday, maybe even a barbeque surprise with balloons, cake and the whole package – a proper birthday surprise!).
I’ve mentioned earlier the agenda with the leather covers – actually, the leather inspired me and in this sense you can go further than that: a leather wallet and leather belt can do the trick, or, if your budget allows you, you can look for a leather travel case or leather man’s bag for daily use – this way he will appreciate your gift every day).
Even if men display a tough position most of the times, that doesn’t mean they don’t need some time off and relax. A nice surprise will be to give him a soft bath robe, maybe you can even get it personalized and write something like “the boss” – this will tickle his ego a little bit.
I’m hoping this was useful. Happy birthday for your dad’s anniversary!
