Father’s Day is just around the corner on this 16 June, and it isn’t always easy to come up with something new and different for Dad. The traditional gifts of ties and mugs feel tiresome year after year, but at least they’re useful and practical. This year, why not get Dad a gift that is a little more unique, but still just as needed? Here are six Father’s Day gift ideas to help you think beyond the clothing accessories this Father’s Day:
Give Him the Gift of a Restful Sleep
Pillows aren’t something that most people think to buy for themselves, but a restful night’s sleep makes all the difference in the world when it comes to physical and mental wellness. Pillows can also easily collect dust mites, dander, and other allergens that make getting any kind of sleep feel impossible. A set of hypoallergenic pillows is a welcome Father’s Day surprise. Know your dad is picky when it comes to his pillows? Get him these hypoallergenic pillow covers instead.
Encourage Him to Try New Ways of Cooking
A Halogen oven lets you roast, bake, and more, all with less time and less fat. The convection technology keeps meats flavourful on the inside and crispy on the outside. Halogen ovens are a favourite amongst many home cooks, especially across the pond in the States.
Get Him Exercising
This one’s a Father’s Day splurge, but well worth the purchase. He’ll be able to keep up his fitness routine (or start a new one) no matter the weather or how long his workday with a desk cycle. A personal favourite of my own, he can use this to get exercise even when he’s just scrolling through social media on his phone. This version is quiet and adjustable, with eight resistance levels for when he wants a bit of a challenge, too.
Give Him Something for His Tunes
Your dad likely has a stash of old vinyl records tucked away in his closet just waiting to be played. There’s been a huge resurgence in vinyl and even cassette tapes in recent years, likely thanks to our technology booming society looking for a slower pace with a touch of nostalgia. Even Aldi is getting in on the act, selling boomboxes and turntables in their stores for Father’s Day this year. Let your dad relive his childhood and enjoy the healing power of music with this best selling record player from 1 by One.
Let Him Relax with a Foot Spa
It’s another gift that he’ll never buy himself, but getting pops a foot spa this Father’s Day guarantees him the much needed opportunity to relax and recharge. These foot baths aren’t just relaxing, either. Foot spas also come with an array of health benefits, including increased circulation.
Write a Meaningful Card
Of course, at the end of the day, what your dad most wants is your words. These dog-themed greeting cards are so much fun and provide the perfect outlet for your Father’s Day thoughts. You can also appeal to his sense of humour with this Star Wars card featuring the classic Darth Vader line or this brilliantly British card, both listed on The Evening Standard’s list of this year’s best Father’s Day cards.
