Father’s Day approaches, and we are once again given the challenge of coming up with a gift for our fathers on their special day. Whether it’s something elegant or something simple, the perfect gift that they would appreciate and use can be anything, so thinking of what to buy is not an easy feat.
So, instead of guessing, we asked our readers about gifts that they believe men would love to receive this coming Father’s Day. Ready your pen and paper, and read on to see which of these Father’s Day gift ideas your dad would love.
Dads love simple yet functional gifts and a wallet will definitely do.
Starting off our list is the classic leather wallet. Fathers generally love something that is simple and at the same time very functional, and an everyday wallet fits the bill.
However, before deciding on one, make sure that you’re getting what he needs. If his old and worn-out wallet needs an upgrade, you can buy a billfold. It’s a classic wallet usually made of leather that your father can use casually on a daily basis. But, if your dad likes to move around a lot, you can also give him a sports wallet. It’s made with water resistant and synthetic materials so that it remains dry and intact even while he’s at the gym or on his morning run.
Give your father a boost of confidence with a dash of the finest perfume.
The next item that men would love to receive the most this coming Father’s Day is a bottle of their favorite perfume. A perfume might seem like an item of vanity to some men, but it actually helps them present themselves well.
When choosing a perfume, familiarize yourself with the five types of fragrances. For a stronger concentration that will last the whole day, check out Parfum fragrances. If you prefer something for everyday use, you can give your dad Eau de Parfum or Eau de Toilette, a slightly diluted version of a Parfum but will still last a good couple of hours. The other two types, Eau de Cologne and Eau Fraiche, are more diluted with water and are cheaper.
A watch is a good investment that your dad will enjoy for a long time.
Third place on the must-have gifts for men is a watch. If you prefer to give your father something luxurious, a watch is a good investment that he can definitely use for a long time.
If you prefer a classic one, opt for a Mechanical, Automatic, or Quartz type of watch. They bear that sleek, classic style that fathers will surely love wearing anywhere. For the modern-day dads, you can give them a Digital, LED, or Smartwatch type of watch. These are high-tech watches that can often be connected to their smartphones for a well-rounded, functional use.
A stylish and sleek pair of leather shoes will certainly give your dad a dapper look!
The item that made it to the second spot is a pair of shoes. Whether our fathers admit it or not, they always love a good pair of shoes. A study made in Britain even concluded that men are now spending more money on shoes than women to fill their shoe obsession.
For something casual and comfortable, give your father a pair of sneakers or athletic shoes from his favorite sports brand. If he’s an outgoing person who likes to go on social gatherings, go for classic leather shoes that he’ll be able to use on formal occasions.
Bring out your father’s confidence with a button-down shirt.
And finally, the best item that men love to receive on Father’s Day is a reliable shirt. Who wouldn’t want a new shirt that they can show off to their family and friends? Aside from it being a necessary part of their wardrobe, a good shirt is also very easy to find.
If you want to give your dad something other than the usual polo shirt, you can opt for an Oxford Button-Down Shirt. They can pair it with jeans, chinos, or trousers and still look fashionable and presentable.
In the end, showing your dad some appreciation doesn’t have to be difficult or costly; a simple gift would do. Let us know in the comments section which of these gifts you will give your father this coming Father’s Day!
