To Sum Up
While these are only a few of our top picks, there are a lot more options available for you to choose from – after all, nobody knows your dad as well as you do.
If you think that the goodie bag has more space in it, add accessories like leather cuffs, a family picture keyring, or even a thumb ring. Understated doesn’t necessarily mean less is more. Although men primarily are more minimalistic than women, it’s all about the thought behind the gift. You can create the base of your gift with the leather bag and wallet and build on top of it with smaller gifts that have sentimental meaning behind them. Just go through the thought process. What do they use most every day? And what needs an upgrade or replacement? If your budget can’t compensate for a new cell phone, don’t feel bad! Go for the things that are within your budget and your control. New slippers, keyrings, and coffee mugs – these are all fantastic bag fillers. It’s all in the surprise that, yes, someone has been paying attention to them.
Whatever gift you decide to give him, your dad will surely appreciate the gesture and have fond memories of this special day!
