The best Father’s Day gift ideas for 2020

Men, be they husbands or fathers, are a significant person in a family. They are the ones that offer support, safety, and love. We as women are spoiled every day with those little things that make us feel so thankful for everything, but once a year is their time to be spoiled. 

This year, the 21st of June is about them. It is about the devoted fathers and the most loved husbands. It may seem like the holiday is all about grilling and fantastic Father’s Day gifts, but there’s undoubtedly more to it. The way we celebrate Dad has changed through the years. We have to get more creative thanks to the changes in the generations and the social context, but the reason why we celebrate this day remains the same.

To be honest, men, in general, can be extremely tricky to buy for, even if it is way easier to buy for them instead of buying a present for a woman. When choosing the perfect gift for Father’s day, you have to find the purpose first. You may want to make a symbolic present, or probably to buy something practical, or maybe you know he needs or desires something for a long time, and now it’s the right occasion to buy it for him. Below, we’ve made a list of some gift ideas that might be helpful for you. Hurry up, you still have a few days to find the perfect present for him! 🙂

1. Cooking apron

It is said that the best chefs in the world are men. Therefore, your man might be one of them. Cooking is a relaxing activity, and most men might prefer to do it themselves. Why not choose a funny cooking apron as a gift for your father? I bet he’ll be even more glad to spend time in the kitchen with a new apron from now on!

2. Workshop toolbox

A toolbox is something that every handyman has to have is his house. If your father is the kind of person that fixes everything in a few seconds, this is the perfect gift. Just think about it: did it happen that your car didn’t turn on and you called your father or husband to come and fix it? Probably yes. Therefore, he might need the right tools to do that. 

3. Relaxing activities

When thinking about buying a present for him, you should know what he likes to do the most: maybe he likes fishing or playing football or basketball, or perhaps he enjoys hiking. In this case, the best thing you can do is: buy him something new for his passion. If he likes fishing, surprise him with a new fishing rod. If he’s a sports lover, maybe a new ball might be ideal. Just in case your father is an adventurer and loves spending time in nature, some new hiking boots could be perfect for this period. 

4. A new wallet

Men are generally very unorganized when it comes to their pocket. They put their money everywhere; they never find their documents or simply throw all of them all in a pocket. Therefore, a new wallet, an excellent personal document organizer, would be ideal for them. Probably they have desired it for a long time, but men aren’t always thinking about buying stuff like that, right?

5. An appointment

What do you say about spoiling him with a full-service gift card at the salon? Maybe he’s stressed, or he has too many tasks to complete, but not enough time to think about spoiling himself right now. Book an appointment and let him enjoy a haircut or a barb trim at his favorite salon in your town. 

6. Office stuff

A calendar template, a new notebook, a document organizer, or an old fashioned pen can be just perfect for your dad. When it comes to an office person, work stuff is never enough. They always need something more in order to be more organized in their workplace. Therefore, I bet you won’t fail to choose this option! 

7. A dinner with your family

It is not always just about restaurants, grills in a unique camp, or some other fancy ideas. Preparing dinner at home together, talking about things that you love and spending some quality time together is everything a father can desire. Family is the most important gift for a person, so make sure everyone will be present there: people’s time is the gift!

8. A vacation

He didn’t make it yet to book a vacation for this summer? Luckily, you can do it for him. Choose a destination you think he’d like to see and buy a ticket for two. It doesn’t have to be far from home, just a little change of environment. A vacation is about changing the vibe, not the place!

9. A wish

Sometimes, a simple wish to say how much you love him matters more than buying something. There are things you may feel uncomfortable to say while having a discussion. Why not tell him everything in a pretty Father’s Day letter? I bet he’ll appreciate your honesty, and you’ll have the chance to get closer by communicating better after that. 

Some wishes you can make to your beloved father:

Dad, you’re the main person I think about when I need a piece of advice. You are a very important person to me, and your word matters a lot to me. Thank you for always being there!

Dear father, thank you for being there every day, spoiling me with your love, and guiding me. I love you!

Dad, you’ve given me the most important things in life: your time, care, and love. I am grateful to have you in my life. Happy Father’s Day!

Even if I’m not with you every day, your guidance, advice, and love have stuck with me. I wouldn’t be who I am today without you. Enjoy your special day, dear father!

The older I get, the more I realize how important it is to have a dad in your life. Thanks, Dad, for everything you do for me!

Dads and daughters don’t always see eye to eye, but always see heart to heart. Happy Father’s Day!

I’m not that kind of perfect daughter, neither you’re the ideal dad, but I do think you’re the most important man in my life!

Dad, your guiding hand on my shoulder will always help me make wise decisions. Thanks for always being!

Happy Father’s Day to the world’s greatest dad from the world’s greatest children.
