Seven Holiday Gifts for Dad

Wednesday, December 14th, 2011

 

 

I’m thinking of something….

….Thoughtful
1. Heartfelt Card
There’s nothing like an honest heartfelt card around the holidays. Just make sure it’s not too honest—you don’t want to go bringing up old tiffs and trysts with Papa Bear now. Tell him how much you appreciate him, how invaluable he is, and include a little personal memory that only you would remember.

…..Pocket Sized
2. Swiss Army Knife
Every man can use a new pocket knife. Think of the one dad already owns? Crusty old thing. Throw it out! Get him a new one! Of course one of the most trusted brands is The Swiss Army Knife and even comes with the little plastic toothpick for those unsightly “gum food”. Get the guy something handy.

….Functional
2. Cufflinks
Think about it—it’s quite simply a no brainer. He can wear them to work, golfing, formal dinners, meetings, at your child’s christening and graduation…they will come in handy very soon. We have a range of moderately priced cufflinks to fit your budget and Dad’s style (or lack there of) and we have a cufflink set for literally every Dad personality out there. Choose from Homer Simpson Cufflinks, Navy Cufflinks, or Hand Painted Animal Cufflinks

3. Tie
Duh. Every year. He needs another tie.

…Handy Dandy
4. New Tool
Right before the holidays, tool kits and individual tools normally go on sale. Keep an eye out on the Sunday ads, online sales, free shipping deals, etc. A simple drill, or 10-in-1 kind of tool is always good.

….Appealing to the Male Ego’s love of sound and projection
6. Surround Sound System for Home
Let’s face it—dad’s hearing is going a little haywire these days. (Think: “What? What?? What?? I can’t hear you! Turn up the TV!). Yes, his ears are going bad. But don’t worry! He can still enjoy his Monday night football and episodes of David Letterman with a surround sound system. And he doesn’t need to have a giant plasma fancy pants TV to go with it, you can simply use it with almost any set you already own. (Not sure about the rabbit ear kind of TV though…)

…Sporty
7. Tickets to a sports game in the New Year
What’s his favorite? Baseball? Soccer? Hockey? Pre-pay for tickets or give him an IOU for his favorite team’s sporting event.
