Giving someone thoughtful presents and gestures is a lovely way to express your affection. And special occasions like Father’s Day or Valentine’s Day provide us with the perfect opportunity to pamper the valuable people in our lives.

Oh, the joy you feel when you see the happiness on your brother’s face when he unwraps the PS5 or that big, warm hug you receive from your bestie when you gift her the Taylor Swift concert tickets. But here’s the thing: it’s not always easy to buy the right item for your loved ones. Especially for fathers and grandfathers.

Each dad plays a unique and important role in their families and communities. There are nearly 72 million fathers across the USA, 29 million of whom are also grandfathers. Every year, many people recognize and honor their dad’s contributions and sacrifices on Father’s Day.

Interestingly, it’s not celebrated on the same day all around the world. In countries like the US, Canada, and UK Father’s Day is on the third Sunday of June. In Australia and New Zealand, it’s on the first Sunday of September. Germans celebrate it on Ascension Day (40 days after Easter). In Thailand, it’s on December 5th, which is also the birthday of King Bhumibol Adulyadej.

One of the most popular Father’s Day gifts is a greeting card. We know it’s easy to purchase one from any store near you, but wouldn’t it be so much better to give your pops a handmade card?

Commercial cards have generic messages and can’t be personalized. If you make something on your own, it reflects the time, effort, and thoughtfulness put into its creation. You can also customize them with unique designs and heartfelt messages.

Apart from cards, clothing is a popular choice of gift for fathers. It’s not difficult to choose a shirt or t-shirt for your dad, as chances are he has been wearing the same kind for years. When it comes to clothing, many men prefer comfortable clothes over anything else. Also, you can always ask mom or just get him a jersey for his favorite sports team.

Many people also organize special outings for their dads. The idea is to give a gift of experience, such as tickets to their favorite sporting event or concert. You can also arrange to do a completely new activity with your father.

For instance, you can take him to a wine and paint class. Both you and your dad can get creative together and paint a piece of art. That’s a great way to spend time with him and bond with him.
