Father’s Day Special: 20 Gifts To Spoil Your Dad With That Are More Than JUST A Shirt

By  | 

Let me begin with asking you guys a question. When was the last time you thanked your dad, just in general, or simply asked him about his day, or his hobbies, or whether he caught up with the latest episode of The Big Bang Theory?

I can happily say that my answer to that is just this morning. I, for one, have a great relationship with my not-so ol’ man and one of the main reasons isn’t because he gave into my every request, but because he gave into the right ones.

He gave me the freedom to make my own decisions, to decide certain aspects of my life, to enjoy the fresh air of success, and to pick myself up without the help of anyone when I failed. He gave me the permission to fuck up, only because he knew that only through my own fuck-ups would I value and learn things — learn to be independent.

Contrary to society’s beliefs *cough* nosy family members who cannot mind their own beeswax *cough* he didn’t abandon me, nor did he stand behind me…he stood right next to me, making sure his guidance came through, no matter what.

And that’s why the relationship I share with my father isn’t one that’s out of the books — I don’t hide away from his opinions, but rather embrace them and actually have a conversation that goes beyond the average ‘how are you doing?’.

Now, you must be wondering how this ties in to a gift guide on father’s day? Well, I say this because a lot of people are not fortunate enough to not share this kind of an equation with their fathers, and that’s mainly because of this rigid, unfathomable, and not-so-warm image of a father they’ve constructed over the years.

Well, I don’t want to state the obvious here y’all, but the role of a dad comes with a briefcase full of responsibilities, which sometimes hinders their ability to express. All it takes is a little extended hand of care to bring a massive smile to his face (or his heart, if smiling isn’t his thing).

Just because he doesn’t instantly melt like makhan mummy, doesn’t mean he doesn’t melt.

FINALLY, my point is, if your father has gone all out for you for pretty much all your life, just buying him a shirt on Father’s Day won’t do justice to his efforts. I know, I know, it is the thought that counts, but come on…if he’d be chanting that mantra for all your birthdays, imagine all the random stuff you may have got.

Make a little effort, go the extra mile this Father’s Day and buy him something he deserves — something that tells him he’s awesome, even if tries to hide it. If you don’t tel him that already, then make a start…make the first move and he’ll definitely reciprocate.

Here are 20 things that are daddy-friendly, pocket-friendly, and will definitely bring a smile to your daddy dearest’s face this Father’s Day.
