So Father’s Day is coming up and you’re stumped for ideas. What can you give dad that he doesn’t already have? Why not make him a fun personalized gift this year? The kids can get involved. Or you can purchase a personalized Father's Day gift that he’ll always cherish. Here are some ideas.
Brief Case or Lunch Bag
Dads love things with their names on them as much as everyone else. It just makes it more interesting and enjoyable. You can start with getting him a monogrammed brief case if he’s a professional. Have golden letters embossed on a leather case and he’ll be the sharpest one in the office or at the board meeting. If he’s not a corporate dad, have a cooler or lunch box personalized with his initials. This is not only a cute idea, but it will help him from losing his own box at the job site.
Other ideas include personalized USB flash drives for his computer. You can order these online with an etched initial or monogram. Dad can keep it on his keychain and when he needs to transfer files from his computer at home to his work computer, he’ll have what he needs.
How about a cup cozy in silver plate? He can drink his soda at his desk at work and never leave a drop of condensation on his paperwork or keyboard. You can order these cup cozies in metal online. They also come in neoprene to stretch over any beverage can. He can take it tailgating at the big game or just use it around the house.
Initials make a nice accent to just about any present the kids make. Visit a paint-your-own pottery shop and have the kids paint him a mug or plate with his name or initials. They can also make other items like piggy banks so dad can save his pocket change in style. They can add his initials to just about anything. Look for fun and different options while you’re there. The kids can paint his name on a race car or other item for his desk.
Personalized golf balls are a great idea for when it’s time to hit the links. He’ll be able to retrieve all his lost golf balls easily when they’ve got his name on them. Get him a set of golf club covers and a golf bag or towel at the same time with his initials or name on them. Pack it in a nice golf gift basket and it will be a gift to remember!
Anything that you can personalize makes a welcome gift at Father’s Day. How about personalized car seat covers or accessories for his car? Get personalized mud flaps for the truck or floor mats with his name or initial.
You can also personalize a whole array of electronics. Get his mp3 player or iPod engraved with his name so he won’t lose it when he puts it down at the gym. Or have a set of ear buds done in a funky personalized style to go with his iPod or computer.
There’s no limit to what you can have personalized these days. Use your imagination. Sometimes just a paperweight that has the letter D for dad made by a loving little hand is all that dad wants for Father’s Day. Create special memories by making something with the kids and dad won’t soon forget the thoughtfulness.
