Celebrate Dad in style this Father’s Day
It’s easy to make a great big fuss over Mother’s Day. Mom is easier to shop for, has more specific desires about activities, and will make you feel really guilty if you forget her Hallmark holiday. Dad, on the other hand, probably doesn’t care. But that doesn’t mean he should be left out.
For Father’s Day, think way outside the box. Dad has great taste and knows what he likes to do best, whether that’s hitting the nicest golf course in town or having a beer at the lake. Cater to his wishes – and by no means make him do any chores – on Father’s Day, June 17.
If your Dad lives far away and you can’t spend an afternoon with him, you’ll have to think of a creative gift idea to send his way. The perfect Father’s Day gift is a challenge – it probably isn’t a dress shirt, a book or a new pair of socks. Here are some fun Father’s Day gift ideas that won’t break the bank:
Send a steak. It might be the perfect opportunity for a grilling party on Saturday if it arrives by Friday night. A variety of companies, like Omaha Steaks, Kansas City Steaks, Rube’s, McGonigal’s and Chicago Gourmet Steaks are all in the freeze-and-arrive fresh steak business.
If he enjoys drinking, a nice bottle of wine is a thoughtful gift. Or give the gift that keeps on giving and register him in a wine club that will send our regular shipments quarterly.
You can’t really ship a case of beer, so consider instead a gift card for a meal and tasting at his favorite hometown brewery. If they can’t mail out the voucher, you can always send a card that promises to buy him a nice dinner the next time you’re in town.
Is he a TV junkie? Consider a subscription for Dad to an expanded offering of his favorite shows. Whether its sports, HBO drama or Pay Per View poker, he’ll be sure to remember your thoughtfulness as he stretches out on the couch for his next viewing marathon.
