This time of year always brings me joy. No, it’s not just because it is summer. Summer makes me happy too but the real reason I love June so much is because I get to celebrate my Father.
Father’s Day has always been my opportunity to remind my Dad how grateful I am for the lessons he taught me and the sacrifices he made to raise me in a comfortable and loving environment. These sacrifices usually include going without certain things he wanted so that I could have what I wanted.
Father’s Day is your chance to present your Dad with a gift he may have had to miss out on when you were younger. Choosing a gift for Dad can sometimes be daunting, especially if you are not sure what he may like.
To make your life easier and to make your dad a happy man, we put together gift suggestions based on personality type. Choose your Dad’s personality type and a gift from the list and you are set to make your dad one happy camper for Father’s Day.
The Outdoorsy Type – These types of men are very practical and would appreciate a useful gift such as new Leatherman or a fishing rod. Gift certificates for fishing classes or prepaid camping vouchers are also appreciated by the outdoorsy man.
The Sentimental Type – Sentimental Dad’s don’t usually want material gifts. Scrapbooks, photo collages and sweet cards are all it takes to make this type of Father happy on his special day.
The Technology Type – If your Dad is a Techy, buy him new ear phones for his iPod or gift certificates to iTunes. You can also get gift cards to Best Buy to chip in for his more expensive tech gadgets!
The Professional Type – Anything that can be used in the office is what this type of Father wants. Smooth writing pens, iPad cases or a new briefcase would be your best bet with a Professional type. Make it special by having your gift personalized with his initials or name.
The Sports Fanatic Type – Did your Dad’s favorite player get traded this year? 2012 jerseys are always a good idea for Sports Dad’s. If your dad is a die-hard fan, personalize a jersey of this favorite team with his name at the NFL Shop online!
The Grill Master Type – You can always find great gifts for the grilling Dad. A new grill set engraved with his name will leave him wanting for nothing. Look for steak branders that have interchangeable letters so he can always decide what message to brand his steaks with!
While getting your Dad the best gift out there is always nice, remember the true reason you are buying him a gift; he always put your needs before his and you should be thankful!
Happy Father’s Day to all the proud papas out there!
