Father’s Day Gift Ideas

1. A Comfy Chair

If you are looking for a gift that makes him happy and comfortable, you should be thinking about gifting him a comfy chair. Your dad must love reading newspapers, and books for long, long hours. You can give him a flexible, elegant, and versatile chair. It’s something the man of the house would cherish and adore every day for years to come and I bet he won’t be the only one who’ll love to take a nap in that comfy and lovely chair.

2. Travel bag

We all have those bags at home which have broken handles, tattered fabrics, non-functional zippers, and whatnot. And who do they belong to? Well, of course! We have seen our dads carry the same boring bags to their work trips, vacations, picnics, and everywhere else. This father’s day, gift him a nice bag which can replace his old companion. 

Go for a trolley bag or a handbag or whichever goes with his personality.

3. Polaroid Camera

Our dads grew up in an analog world. They listened to music on cassettes and wrote letters to communicate with their friends and family. They also stood in lines, waiting for their turn outside the P.C.O booths. Remembering those times always makes them nostalgic. In the age of smartphones, where everything you would ever need fits on your palm (except food and water… and a few more things *wink wink*), give your father an instant polaroid camera. He would love to take pictures of it. There’s something with the prints that digital photos can never replace. Don’t forget to order some extra films with the camera.

4. Bobbleheads

With many options to choose from, you can easily find whichever fictional/non-fictional character your father likes. You can be profoundly thoughtful with your choice. Choose something that he can relate to. Bobbleheads are cute and funny. Your father would keep them at his office or his study desk. He would always remember YOU as he smiles at the bobbling head. Bigsmall & Chumbak have some great options for bobbleheads

5. Virtual Assistant-enabled Speaker

Nobody can come between our fathers and their love for retro songs. They can listen to them day in and day out. All the fathers deserve a good quality speaker for their daily dose of retro hits. But what if they could listen to the news and order groceries using the speaker too?! Too vague a description for a virtual assistant? Anyway, Alexa, the Google Dot, Apple home Pod (meh!), or any other virtual assistant speaker can be the perfect gift for your father. It’s also great to have someone other than you at home following all the commands (waiting for Alexa to start fetching mobile phones, water, and food on command. Alexa! Jao roohafza lao.) 

6. A Phone Makeover

Fathers are least interested in getting new screen guards or back covers or anything related to upkeeping of their cellphones. This father’s day, give their smartphone a makeover. A good phone cover and screen guard for his phone this father’s day can make him happy! 

7. 3-in-1 Shaving Kit

This shaving kit comes with a beautiful package. This is a 3-step shaving kit for men. Yes, you can gift this to your brother, husband/ boyfriend but 19th June is father’s day which is super soon. So, we suggest you give this to your dad for a luxurious experience.

8. Teacups/Mugs

Yes, we already know that most fathers love their chai/coffee! How many times a day does he drink his favorite cup of happiness? Go and ask him, but with that, gift him a pretty mug for his daily dose of tea/coffee! This is a must-have essential for every father. Even if he already has some pretty cups in the kitchen, don’t hesitate to buy a new one. He is going to love them all! There are never enough mugs in the kitchen, isn’t it? 

9. Organizers

How many times have you been scolded by your dad for not keeping your things in their right place? Do you want to know the reason? Simple, they love organizing things and their place. Are we stereotyping dads here? Never mind. If you doubt us, ask your dad right away! 

You can give him pretty little organizers to keep his watches, buttons, medicine, etcetera. 

You can gift this organizer, this one is special because you can carve his name on it. It has a fancy top lid and velvet cushions inside. 

10. Yoga Mat

Gift him a cute yoga mat, even if he is not a yoga person. Your gift will motivate him to use it every day! Tell him you care about him by giving this, write a cute little note and tag it along.

Most importantly, tell your father that you love him. This is going to be the most valued gift for him. We don’t usually express our love for him verbally. This father’s day, hug him and thank him for everything he did for you!
