What To Get Your Dad For His Birthday?
Dad’s never really seem to ask for much, but doesn't that just make the birthday hunt that much more confusing?
"Just get me a wallet or some slippers, honestly it's fine"
But Dad… I have got you 3 different versions of the same wallet for the last 3 years! Let’s switch it up a bit.
Why do they say this? It's their special day, and we want to make them feel important. Are they just being nice, but secretly want a well thought out and planned gift? Or do they genuinely just have low expectations?
We will be diving in to answer these important questions and more. To make your birthday gift ideas for Dad run a bit smoother, we have narrowed down the key points into 3 (hopefully relatable) simple sections.
1. Gifts For Dad Who Wants Nothing
First things first, is the Dad who wants nothing. They say they want nothing, but would probably be quite offended if you rocked up to the birthday party singing “HAPPY BIRTHDAY!” with no present or a card. Very confusing, right?
Usually these Dad’s would be happy with an inexpensive gift, with a bit of thought behind it. A personalised gift would go down a treat here. You could get him a photo frame of you and the family, that he can look at and smile, while at home or work.
2. Gifts For Dad Who Have Everything
These are the types of Dad that when you think about it, he literally has everything! Any hobby or interest, he's got all covered, with all of the up to date gear for.
When you think about the items your dad has, you overwhelmingly notice:
- All the DIY department's tools bursting out of his drawer.
- His wardrobe is full of the same 10 pairs of shirts and jeans.
- The kitchen cabinet overflowing with all the latest cooking gadgets.
- He Has all of his favourite footballers signed shirts.
- Multiple wallets, slippers and watches from your last birthday gift ideas.
So what else could you possibly get him?
A Dad who has all of the above is surely a dad who is fun and entertaining. Someone who gets the job done, but also someone who loves a good time with this family. For this, a gift that will make him laugh will be received with a smile on his face (and a chuckle of course)
3. Gifts For Dads With No Hobbies
So your dad doesn’t seem to have any hobbies, this narrows down the gift hunt quite a bit. But they will definitely have some interests to buy gifts for. Whether they are a football supporter, enjoy watching their favourite movies on TV/Netflix or are a workaholic. There are still many gifts to buy for these interests.
For example for someone who watches a lot of football on TV, you could get him a Footballers cushion for him to relax and watch the games with.
If you let your Dad choose, what would he get?
