Father’s Day is fast approaching, and it’s not just about appreciating the man who gave you the children in your life. It’s about helping your children to appreciate their father, and you can do this by helping them to choose the perfect gift for Daddy.
Whether you have little children or teenagers, you will likely be the biggest help when it comes to Father’s Day options. Choosing a present that is ‘just right’ isn’t easy, especially with all the other gift-giving events throughout the year. When you need a little help finding the right present, it’s always easier to go online and get some ideas, so check out our list of Father’s Day presents that will go down well in 2017:
  • Get crafty. DIY gifts are always appreciated from children because of the effort that goes into them. You get to help the little ones make something beautiful and they get to have fun. Dad can take the gift to work and proudly display it on his desk, even if it is a lopsided pottery pot! Crafts are a great idea for younger children, as they really feel a sense of pride for their creation, which rubs off on everyone around them.
  • For older children, looking for a gift can be difficult but they’ll know better what their dad likes and doesn’t like. A cross necklace or a personalised bracelet for the Dad who loves a little bling will always go down well, and older teenagers who have their own job will be able to afford the gift from their own pocket. These types of gifts are cherished as the effort put into them and affording them is huge, and that is recognised.
  • Watch Dad. See what he likes and what he loves. Ask him what he would like to have for his day and by watching him, you can really pick up on subtle clues about what would make him happy.
  • Gift cards are often a last resort gift for some, but this way, there is far more freedom for Dad to choose his own gift and know he didn’t pay for it. It can feel like an impersonal gift at times, but for the Dad who is difficult to buy for, it can be a relief!
  • Think about the gifts you have bought in the past that have been greatly appreciated. Was it a great suit or an experience day that brought that smile? Buying a similar gift isn’t a bad thing, in fact, if you know he’s enjoyed it before then you know he will again!
  • His hobbies should absolutely count when it comes to Father’s Day gifts, so go for gardening gifts, golf gifts and musical gifts if they’re what he loves the most. You can’t lose by choosing something he’s invested in!

Dad is a big part of your life, and the life of your children. A whole day dedicated to appreciating your Dad or the father of your children is a gift that cannot be wasted.
