Are you starting to think about your Christmas shopping? Dads can be notoriously hard to buy for, often having everything and claiming they want nothing. That’s where a gift guide for dads can come in very handy!
Whether you’re buying for your dad, grandad, or father-in-law, here are some great gift ideas to inspire your Christmas shopping.
Personalised gifts tend to go down a treat with everyone, but they can be a particularly good option if you’re buying for someone who already has everything.
The beauty of a personalised gift is that people are very unlikely to buy it themselves. Knowing it has been bought with them in mind and is unique makes it all the more special.
Take some time to think about what they’re likely to use the most. A wallet, a notebook, a piece of clothing, a coaster, and garden tools are all great options for dads.
The gift of alone time, particularly for a dad with young children, might be the best thing you can give. All parents need alone time every now and then, so arranging an activity for them to enjoy on their own will always be welcomed.
This could be anything from a voucher for their favourite coffee shop to a spa experience. Being able to support with any childcare that may be required is a good idea for this gift option, to make sure it can be thoroughly enjoyed.
If you still want them to have something to open on the big day, you can explore Christmas cards for Dads and write a special message inside letting them know about their gift.
A hamper is a great Christmas gift if you’re shopping for someone who doesn’t want any more ‘stuff’, but you still want to treat them.
Filling a hamper full of all their favourite consumables means you still get to spoil them, but they won’t be left with lots of things to find a home for. The hamper could contain anything from their favourite food and drink to toiletries or items related to their hobbies. You might even like to include some silly Christmas jokes to give dad a giggle.
Make your own kit
Another great gift option for dads is a make-your-own kit.
This can be specific to their personal interests, and is perfect if they have some time off work during the festive period. A few examples include make your own pasta, make your own beer, make your own candles, and grow your own vegetables.
A subscription is the gift that keeps on giving, literally. Nowadays we are spoilt for choice with subscription services, so there is bound to be one that will suit the dads in your life.
From fresh pasta to craft beer and magazines, do some research and opt for whatever you think they would enjoy the most. Subscription gifts are also good as they can suit any budget depending the length of the subscription.
Hopefully this gift guide for dads has given you lots of ideas and inspiration, and makes your Christmas shopping easier. Have you got any tried-and-tested dad gifts to add to this list?
