Gift Ideas for Dad

By: Sam A. Brown

Father's Day isn't just a holiday to get your Dad his favorite NFL jersey or heaven forbid another tie, it's a time of thanks and spending quality time together.? More than anything, Dad's like to do things rather than receive things, but if you want to show your Dad just how much he's loved and appreciated bundle a gift of love with an act of fun.

A good example would be to get your Dad a new pair of athletics shoes and then make arrangements to engage in that sport.? If he's a tennis fan, get him a couple tennis balls, a new pair of tennis shoes and reserve a court at your local park or fitness center.?

If he's into Golf, you could do the same thing.? Get a few golf balls and some tees, and head out to the course or even just a few hours at the driving range.? NFL football jerseys are another great way to say, "Hey Dad - let's go toss the skin around the back yard."? Whether its football, basketball, baseball, tennis, swimming, horseshoes or golf - there's an activity for everyone that can incorporate a small token of appreciation for the dedication and unconditional love father's have for their children.

If he's not a sports fan, figure out what he does like.? If he's into gadgets like GPS, invest in a tank of gas and go for a drive together.? Or if he's the intellectual type, do something educational to pair with the book you give him.?

The point is, a gift is a great idea, but the gift of time is even more important.? It doesn't matter if you like the sport, are any good at it or even if you hate driving, this is about your Dad.? Spending time with him, thanking him for all the guidance, advice, jokes, and yes even discipline is an important part of sealing the father - child relationship.?

By pairing a token gift with a thoughtful activity, your Dad will feel truly special and enjoy the time he gets to spend with his little ones.? Regardless of age, Dad's will always be the guys we look up to and admire.? From words of wisdom to acts of affirmation and encouragement, Father's Day is the day to let him know just how much he means to you.

From NFL football jerseys, books, shirts to golf shoes, the best gifts are those that can be enjoyed, especially if it means the enjoyment can be shared by father and child.
