Father's Day Gift Ideas

Sunday, June 19th, 2005

Frequently Asked Questions

Should I give my Stepfather, or other men, a gift on Father's Day?
Why not? In addition to a Stepfather, you may also wish to gift a Grandfather or a Father-like figure a gift. The choice is entirely up to you. Many people struggle with the card that accompanies their gift. In addition to a range of cards that are printed specifically for Father's Day, there are many blank cards that allow you to write a personalized message that suits the relationship best.

I think my husband is a wonderful Father, and I'd like to give him a gift on Father's Day. Is this a common practice?
Yes, many Moms like to give their husband a present on Father's Day. It's a great way to let your husband know how much you appreciate his role as a Dad.

Our Dad is retired and his favorite hobby is spending time in his woodshop. We'd like to give him some tools or equipment related to his interest, but don't know much about the craft. Any suggestions?
A gift related to your Father's favorite hobby sounds like a wonderful idea! Have you considered a gift certificate to a store that sells related supplies? This would allow him to get the tool he's always wanted, but doesn't already own.

Every year my daughter (who lives across the country) sends me a new tie for Father's Day. I don't want to sound ungrateful, but I seldom wear ties and it seems like a waste. Is there any way for me to tell her that I don't want any more ties for my collection? I don't want to hurt her feelings.
Most gift givers really do wish to please the gift recipient-your daughter is most likely under the impression that you want or need some new ties! Well in advance of Father's Day, you might try a few subtle hints: perhaps mention how you are enjoying a newfound sense of casual style, or tell her about some recent hobbies and interests. Hopefully your conversation will inspire some new gift ideas.
