It’s June again, which means a couple of things. One: we can finally say that summer is here to stay. The sun is shining, and the weather’s warm. And two: it’s Father’s Day! North America celebrates Father’s Day on June 20th this year, so be sure to get your dad something special in time for the big day. Whether you’re celebrating your dad, a person who stepped up and became a father figure in your life, or someone who is celebrating Father’s Day as a father for the first time this year, you want to surprise them with the perfect gift.
To give the special man in your life something unique this year for the big day, check out our list of gifts below.
A Travel Mug
Whether the dad you’re shopping for is a traveller, outdoorsy, or likes to take his coffee to the car each morning because there’s simply not enough time to drink it at home, he will love a brand new travel mug. But you don’t want to get any regular type of travel mug — you’re looking for quality, durability, and comfort.
Always look for things such as insulation and a sturdy lid, so you’ll know that the mug will last your dad a long time. It’s also a good idea to check for washability — he can throw it in the dishwasher after a good day’s use without risking any damage.
You want to show your dad how much you love him with a unique present from the heart, but you don’t want to settle for anything too traditional or something you’ve gotten him in the past. How about personalized t-shirts? You could design your own custom t-shirts online from a reputable printing company and then hand-deliver them to the big man himself.
Do you have a shared interest or hobby, such as cycling or dogs? Make t-shirts with an image of your favourite dog breed or something funny that only the two of you would understand. The shirts will become tactile tokens of your relationship with one another for years to come.
A Portable Air Purifier
While an air purifier isn’t going to get rid of something like COVID-19, it will help to clean the air in your dad’s home and eliminate some of that dust that’s been sitting there for years. A portable air purifier is excellent for folks who have pets or allergies because they sanitize toxins, pollutants, and allergens floating around the air.
There’s been quite a bit of lounging around the house this year due to the pandemic and lockdowns. And what we all learned is that lounging at home in comfortable clothing is kind of the best. Why not get dad a pair of comfy sweatpants to leisurely hang out in the house in? He’ll appreciate it and likely never get out of them.
This Father’s Day, spoil your pops with something unique and heartfelt. He’ll be so grateful to receive something from you, and you’ll feel so pleased when you see that smile on his as he opens the gift.
