It’s been a few times now that I’ve heard the running joke that Father’s Day pales compared to Mother’s Day. You might be reading this right now realizing you completely forgot about the holiday and are now scrambling to come up with Father’s Day gift ideas. The reality of the situation is that you’re probably not the only one. Or perhaps you are well aware that this special day is coming up, but you’re still drawing a blank on what to get your dad since he seems to have it all. Well, luckily enough, sometimes all that’s needed is a fresh set of eyes and an outsider’s perspective to give some ideas you probably hadn’t thought about before. So what are some practical gifts for dad for 2021?
Functional gifts for dad
For many people, handmade gifts can be the most important kind of gift to receive. This is because a lot of time, dedication, creativity, and most of all, care, go into creating something for someone you love. Consider crafting an elaborate greeting card, a poster, or a simple, heartfelt letter. Any of these unique and emotional ideas are sure to melt any fathers’ heart.
Socks or Boxers
I kid you not! I never understood why my mom would always buy my dad boxers or pairs of socks as Father’s Day gifts, or for any holiday for that matter. It wasn’t until I grew up that I realized dads will rarely buy these items for themselves. Not even when they’re full of holes and need mending. Buy your dad a set of nice socks, some comfortable boxers, and maybe even throw in some undershirts. That should keep him set for a good while.
Custom Keychain or Jewelry
There are so many online options nowadays to customize and engrave jewelry pieces or ornaments such as keychains. Engraving a unique message on a keychain could make a lovely gift for businessmen dads who may need to keep track of multiple sets of keys at once.
A knife set
Another practical gift for dad. I’ve rarely seen anyone get upset over being gifted a knife set, especially fathers. They’re helpful tools for the kitchen and the barbeque.
An Electric Razor
This Father’s Day gift idea may deserve a higher place on the list. An electric razor is a convenient accessory to add to any dad’s bathroom cubby. It makes the task of shaving more enjoyable and less of a hassle.
A common stereotype in the beauty industry is that skincare is something solely reserved for women. Yes, men’s and women’s skin is different. However, every gender can immensely benefit from having a skincare routine and the right products. Dad’s face might especially need it if he’s shaving or trimming his facial hair. Razors can cause irritation, bumps, and dryness. Men’s skin is also more prone to free radicals due to its active sebaceous glands. This also means men’s skin tends to be oilier than women’s. Aging signs also appear earlier in men.
