Father’s Day is less than a week away, but there’s still plenty of time to let Dad know how much you appreciate him. Here are a few simple gifts that will let him know he’s #1 in your book:
Great Gift Ideas for Father’s Day:
Write Dad a Letter
If words of encouragement are Dad’s love language, let your little ones fill out a few of our Father’s Day printables. If they’re too young to write, you can have them dictate their letters or maybe just color in a special Father’s Day picture you can download here for free.
Make Dad a Craft
From mugs to magnets to mason jars, it’s hard to beat the charm of a homemade gift. Dad deserves the care your kids will put into crafting something special for him. Need inspiration? Check out all the cute ideas on my Father’s Day Pinterest Board:
Give Dad Some Candy
The advantage of giving Dad a consumable gift is that it won’t take up any shelf space — at least, not for long. My husband has always had a huge sweet tooth, so we usually do most of our shopping for him on the candy aisle. Bonus: You’ll find lots of clever ways to wrap Dad’s treats on that “Make Father’s Day” board above.
Send Dad to the Movies
My husband has always been a huge movie buff, so when I spotted the Movie Pass program that would let him see any film at any theater on any day for just $9.95 a month, I knew he could easily get his money’s worth, and then some.
The movie pass is actually just a debit card. He checks in on the MoviePass app as soon as he arrives at the theater, and funds to cover the ticket price are automatically loaded onto the card so that by the time he reaches the window, he’s ready to go.
Help Dad Stay Healthy
If the Dad at your house is at all techie and/or health conscious, he would love the gadget my husband ordered for us last year: Motive Rings. Slip it on your finger, and it will automatically track your steps, sleep cycles, heart rate, and more. Order by June 12 to ensure delivery of sizing kit by Father’s Day.
Print Dad a Favorite Snapshot
From now until June 17th (2018), you can order a free 8×10 Photo Print from Walgreens. Simply upload your photo file onto the Walgreen’s photo site, choose the 8×10 size, select in-store pickup and use the coupon code PRINTDAD at check-out.
Let Dad Know Where He Stands
I’ve collected Precious Moments figurines for years, so when they offered me one of their Father’s Day editions in exchange for a blog review, I jumped at the opportunity. I just ordered this little “#1 Dad” figurine this morning and am hoping it will arrive in time to give it to my husband on Sunday.
Whether you buy a ready-made gift or emblazon “numero uno” on a mug or T-shirt, don’t miss your chance to let Dad know he’s tops!
