Shopping for dad is simple if you know what kind of guy he is.
Armchair ref, avid golfer or earnest fisherman: all these dads are a snap to gift on Father’s Day. Try some of these fresh ideas to for the sports fan dad in your life.
10. A remote holder
The ever-present remote is forever getting lost. As dad sits in his chair switching back and forth from golf to basketball and pro to college he must have his remotes well organized…when the remote is lost it dooms day so choose a remote caddy that keeps it all together for him.
9. A new fishing box
The bigger the better when it comes to lure kit boxes. Dad can always use more room for new lures and that extra reel. The more compartments the better. Think of the fun he will have deciding which tray to put all his new hooks in.
8. A stadium seat cushion
On those Saturday afternoons while cheering on Dads favorite team or alma mater his tush should be comfortable. Doubles as a picnic table cushion as well. Have it covered in his favorite team logo!
7. The old favorite
Golf balls. Sleeves and sleeves of golf balls are always a welcome sight. Especially seeing as dad is off to his annual Florida trip with the boys. And his age he loses more balls than he ever used too. Be sure to get him his favorite brand.
6. His favorite team clothing
Whether it be socks, a sweater or sweatshirt or a ball cap. When he dons his favorite teams’ colors he always stands proud. Dad can always use another NFL hat with the Steelers logo on it.
5. Sports memorabilia
A signed baseball card or baseball. A football helmet or a golf flag. As long as its signed by one of his heroes it will make him smile. Look for odd and vintage memorabilia as the older and the rarer, the more he is apt to be able to show it off to his buddies with pride.
4. A golf greens fee
Get dad a round at the club he never plays because “It’s too expensive”. Ask his pals which one that might be. Be sure they can play too as he won’t want to play The TPC Sawgrass alone.
3. 4 game tickets to his favorite team
Be sure to get enough tickets so he can invite either you or his buddies. Better yet just tell him that you are going with and he can invite whoever he wants to fill the other two seats.
2. A sports book
The biography of his favorite childhood sports idle is always a touching gift. It shows you gave time and thought into the selection of this gift. Be sure to sign and date it so he places you right up there with Babe Ruth.
1. A free pass
Give dad a hand written coupon that simply reads, “This coupon can be used for a trade. Whatever you had to do around the house today will be done by me, so you can watch your favorite game, go fishing or tee it up with your pals.”
