Best Father’s Day gifts – FOX 31 Denver

Win over even the fussiest father with these gift ideas

We all know fathers who don’t like to have a fuss made over them, but you can’t let Father’s Day pass without letting your dad know how much he means to you. Unfortunately, finding a special gift every year can seem like mission impossible. You should consider your father’s personality and hobbies to find the perfect present to celebrate his place in your life.

Stuck on what to get your father this year? Check out some of the best Father’s Day gift ideas for your dad, no matter whether he lives for sports, loves to grill or can’t resist trying out the latest gadgets. 

How to choose a Father’s Day gift

It would be easier if you could just ask your dad what he wants for Father’s Day, but you know what he’s probably going to say: he doesn’t need anything. 

If your father is practical, you’ll want to choose something that makes his life easier, like a top-notch beard trimmer that can streamline his grooming routine or a comfy pair of slippers he can wear to take out the trash. Of course, you’ll have an easier time shopping for dear old dad if he has a hobby. Your fisherman dad will probably love a new rod, while a technology-loving father will appreciate a new electronic gadget for Father’s Day. Tailor the gift to his interests, and you’re sure to hit a home run.

If your dad is adamant about not wanting the usual gifts, consider a more sentimental option. A framed photo collage with family pictures or a photo album with your favorite snapshots of dad is sure to tug at his heartstrings. And if your father is really opposed to material gifts, spending time together may be the best present. Cook a meal together, take a trip to the beach, go bowling or watch your favorite movie to show Dad how much you really care.
