Fathers Day

What to get for Dad

Ah, Father's Day. It's the one day a year that we universally celebrate the man who made us possible; the man who taught us to ride a bike, took us to Little League and protected us as we were growing up; the man who walked us down the aisle; the grandfather to our children. No gift can possibly equal the time, love and sacrifice Dad has made for us over the years, which begs the question, "What should I get for Dad as a Father's day gift?" Well, perhaps this collection of Father's Day gift ideas will help you decide.


Before you go shopping for any Father's Day gift, you should first set a budget for yourself. Set a limit on what you can spend ahead of time; this will help you narrow down the Father's Day present possibilities and prevent you from splurging.

Once you've set a budget, take some time to consider the man for whom you're shopping. What are his likes, his dislikes, his hobbies, what his beliefs? Once you've considered the man, you can then consider the gift.

Golf Gift

If your dad is an avid golfer, consider giving him a golf gift this year. He probably doesn't need another pack of golf balls or another set of club head covers, but why not give him tickets to an Open, or invite him on a golf weekend. If you don't golf, offer him a golf weekend for himself and a friend. If your budget won't allow a gift of this caliber, consider golf swing analysis. Golf swing analysis is an electronic evaluation of a golf swing. It's designed to calculate inconsistencies and offer solutions for improvement. It's a surefire way to improve a golf score - and that's a gift Dad is sure to love!


You might also consider buying Dad a high-tech gadget for a Father's Day gift. If your father is an avid reader, consider the electronic Kindle. If he is a music lover or an athlete, an iPod or mp3 player will be a good choice.

In truth, when it comes to Father's Day presents, the possibilities are endless. Just remember, the most important factor to consider when shopping for Dad is Dad himself. Stick to gifts that are unique to your father's personality and put some thought into your purchase. You'll be happy you did, and so will Dad!
