Father's Day Gift Ideas: Choosing a Gift He’ll Love
by Cody Johnson | Jun 8, 2018 | Canvas Press
Since it’s almost summer, it’s time to start thinking about Father’s Day gift ideas. It’s a time many of us dread because dads are not always chatty about what they want or need and you’re stuck with the same tired options year after year. If you’re fed up with choosing from the typical tie, socks, power tools, or golf memorabilia, here are five unique ideas that will actually get Dad to crack a smile when you show him how much you appreciate him this Father’s Day.
Though Dad loves gadgets, he may not always stay up-to-date on the latest technology. A camera-enabled drone will give him hours of entertainment on trips or just at home in the yard. If your dad already has a GoPro camera, a drone like this one will make use of one of his favorite gadgets and save you some money on his gift.
If you want to spruce up Dad’s man cave for Father’s Day, check out a wall mural from Canvas Press. Your dad might not choose giant graphic artwork for himself, but adding a focal point wall to the garage or shed will up his style points and make his space feel much more special. All you need to do is get into his space to discreetly measure how big the wall mural needs to be, then you can choose your own photo or one from Flickr to display. Does your dad have a favorite city or state park? An urban or natural view covering his wall will give him an escape right at home.
Desktop Canvas Print
To truly customize your Father’s Day gift and get your dad something no other dads will, design and print your own desktop canvas print on Canvas Press so he can be reminded of your thoughtfulness every day! Getting a framed picture for pop is a classic gift idea, but printing on canvas adds finesse and shows you put just a little more thought into your gift. Choose a childhood memory or a recent outing together to showcase on a canvas he can keep at his desk at work or at home. A smaller size keeps the gift affordable and more convenient for Dad to display wherever he likes.
Metal Sports Print
Another great customizable gift for Father’s Day on Canvas Press are metal prints. They actually print any photos or graphics onto an aluminum sheet to get a unique masculine finish. The result is much classier than a bachelor pad street sign or other metal sign. We recommend getting Dad’s favorite sports team emblem or sports scene printed as a metal print with a wall mount so your dad can hang it out on the patio to show off to friends or wherever he watches the big game.
Treat Dad in a way he normally wouldn’t treat himself by swapping out that rusty old razor for a razor subscription that sends him new blades every month. Most razor subscriptions even include luxury shaving cream or gel with the first package so your dad can have his own spa day each morning. They’re not just for moms, anymore! A subscription like Harry’s shows your dad that he deserves a little pampering, too.
The key to success in choosing a Father’s Day gift is to keep your own dad’s personality and quirks in your decision. The more you can customize your gift to suit him, the better. Don’t be afraid to show your thoughtfulness, we all know Dad is really a softie, anyway.
