Father's Day is coming up soon (it falls on June 18 this year), so it's time to start planning what gift you will give dear old dad to celebrate how much you care for him. The last thing he needs is yet another tie or paperweight to add to his collection, so consider one of these unique gift ideas instead:
Try a Virtual 5K
These days, gift giving is all about experiences, so sign yourself and dad up for a virtual 5K. You can choose any track you like, as long as you reach the full five kilometers (about three miles). Even if you are not a runner, you can still walk the distance. The goal is not necessarily to get the best time, but rather to enjoy spending time with your father on his special day. To make you feel even better about completing the event, the creators are donating a portion of the proceeds to Team Hoyt, a charity that supports disabled and physically challenged young people.
Enjoy Some Cigars and Champagne
If you are in our local area of Spring, Texas, you can take dad to Buy the Glass Wine Bar & Lounge's Champagne & Cigars event. This makes a great gift for the dad who enjoys the finer things in life. The two of you can kick back and relax as you enjoy your beverages and cigars in the evening.
Of course, young children will want to get something for dad. However, kids aren't known for having a lot of money, so help them make something instead. Dad will love the thought and effort that went into creating his one-of-a-kind gift. It is likely to be something that he will cherish forever. The internet is filled with great ideas for crafty gifts that kids of all ages can make, so get crafting!
Frame Something Close to His Heart
Whatever your dad is into, there is likely something that you can put into a stunning frame to create a unique piece of memorabilia. For example, if he's a sports nut, buy an autographed jersey or other piece of memorabilia from his favorite player and frame it so that he can hang it on his wall, preserving it for all time and creating a unique conversation piece. If he's a movie buff, frame a poster of his favorite movie. You can complete the gift with a screening of that movie, complete with popcorn and snacks.
