A multi-tool is ideal for the fixer-upper, jack-of-all-trades or preppers who spend hours tinkering with their cars, attending to what needs fixing around the house or preparing for the apocalypse. Fits right in Dad’s pocket, but the price of a good one could burn a hole in yours.

Get his sentimental side

Time to show your father all those piano or guitar lessons were worth it by surprising him with a lovely song. For the less musically inclined, AI can help you create the best Father’s Day song ever! Just input the lyrics and arrangement and it creates the melody.A Chinese tea set, perfect for both brewing tea and to adorn a man cave. — FreepikA Chinese tea set, perfect for both brewing tea and to adorn a man cave. — Freepik

Time for a cuppa

If your dad is a traditionalist who likes his “spot of tea”, afternoon tea or Chinese tea, consider getting him a stylish tea set as an alternative to Fathers Day high-tea buffets. This usually comes with a small teapot and several cups, which could spark his interest in the art of traditional tea drinking. The set could also be a perfect gift to adorn his man cave.

For the playful papa

Besides allowing dads to relive their childhoods, racing with remote control (RC) vehicles could be a great bonding activity to do with him. Whether cars, trucks or military vehicles – there’s plenty to choose from and typically not too pricey either. Some can even be custom-made to suit dad’s preference.

Love the classics

With renewed interest in analogue music and vinyl records, this Fathers Day could be the perfect time to get dad a new turntable. Be prepared, however, to see him gyrating to disco music in the hall as he reminisces about his younger days.

Make it personal

According to Dale Carnegie; “A person’s name is to that person, the sweetest and most important sound in any language.” With that in mind, getting your dad’s name embossed, carved or engraved on common items like mugs, key chains or even pens could be a basic but memorable, not to mention inexpensive, touch.

Green is the colour

Potted plants are an obvious gift for fathers with green thumbs. Just look around your garden or balcony to find the plants, flowers or colours which interest him. Then head down to the nearest plant nursery and get what tickles his fancy.

Gift of the generations

Dad’s family tree with pictures of all his relatives present and past could be a great Fathers Day gift. The lineage chart can be an important family document to pass down to the next generation.

Time

Of all the gifts that we can give our dad no matter how simple or luxurious, nothing can ever beat the time we spend with him. The best aspect about this gift is that it does not require a big budget and can be as simple as accompanying him in doing what he likes best. However, this simple but precious gift should be shared daily and not just on Fathers Day.
