Gifting the man who taught you how to walk, bicycle or scared away those wanna-be-suiters can conjure up overwhelming emotion, and therefore a lot of confusion. You do not want to disappoint him, especially when you know he will just accept anything from you. Discussing your ideas with your friends and peers does not help either as the suggestions are as diverse as a bag of cookie. Because no two dads are the same. But believe it or not, gifting your father can be easier than you think. Here we are, with gifting ideas for different types of dads out there. All you have to do is find out which one is yours!
Gifting The Dapper Dad:
Aren’t you proud of all those times when your dad came to pick you up looking like someone straight out of a K-Drama? Yes, men’s grooming has come a long way from just having a monthly haircut to using hair products to set the mane right. Gift your dapper dad products that will help him groom his hair and tame his facial fur.
Gifting The Masterchef Dad:
You are one of those fortunate kids who get to eat their dad’s food. He doesn’t mind spending hours in the kitchen and get all sweaty just to witness the joy it brings to his loved ones. Gift him some heavy-duty soaps and shower gels to freshen up and enjoy.
Gifting The Corporate Dad:
He is the one in suits and is now working from home. But hey, can we blame him for continuing his well-groomed habits of dressing up and getting ready even now? Rather, he is the epitome of someone being in control and at peace with the situation. Gift your corporate dad a few colognes and perfumes to keep up that feel-good factor.
Gifting The Bookworm Dad:
Be honest. Haven’t you ever felt like getting less attention than those yellowish pages he is so glued to? Then again, you know the truth. He and his books maybe inseparable but he cherishes you the most. So, be thoughtful of his hobby (and his skin care!). Gift your bookworm dad face masks and sheet masks that he can just put on while reading.
The Fallback Plan:
If the above ideas do not fit your father (or you), here is what you can always gift your dad. Pick up products such as shaving creams, foams, gels and shaving tools. With the long lockdown period coming to an end, he might be in a hurry to get back to his favourite salon. But with you gifting him grooming and shaving products he will be able to stay home for a few more days. Now, isn’t that something rewarding?
This Father’s Day, surprise your dad with carefully thought-out gifts. But you know what works best? The care and love you wrap your gift with. So, don’t forget to add loads of love. Happy Gifting!
