Although hand-made cards, his favorite home-cooked meal and heartfelt messages are great ideas for this special day, there are a wide variety of gifts you can choose from to surprise and give him something special during Father's Day.
Men, our husband and father's in general are usually busy and DIY inclined individuals. Beside managing their day jobs and providing for the family, a lot of them also enjoys doing home repairs and DIY projects at home or inside their man caves.
With this mind, a gift card from Home Depot, Lowe's or his favorite hardware store is one of the best options you can pick for a rush gift for your special man on Father's Day or any other occasion. Men generally see these places as their "toy store." Any typical dad would generally make a dozen trip to the hardware store in a week and never get tired of doing it or even thinking about their next trip. Not only will he appreciate the gift, you might end up getting that repair done or that DIY swing set-up before the weekend.
Electronic gadgets are also great options to consider when getting gifts for your special guy. Think of digital camera, wide-screen TV's, DVD players or laptops. It all depends on what they are passionate about. If he enjoys watching movies, DVD players or a big TV would be a great surprise. If he loves the outdoors and enjoys photography, a classy new digital camera would do the work. These gifts however can be a little bit too pricey so be sure to save up and plan early to be able to score one for your favorite man on Father's Day.
Personalized gifts are also a good idea when giving a gift to the guy who seems to have everything. Picture frames, plaques or figurines can be purchased specifically with Father's Day in mind. You can also purchase personalized pens. Mugs and t-shirts with special photos and special messages to show your appreciation.
Gift certificates to a hobby they are fond of a specialty shop they enjoy visiting is also a nice option for Father's Day gifts. If they enjoy playing golf, drinking wine or woodworking, you can practically find a specialty gift shop for that. Get him a gift certificate to get an item that he really likes or need.
