It’s always the same story; you need Dad Birthday gifts ideas, but he’s so hard to buy for. Whether its a birthday gift, Christmas gift, Father’s Day gift, or some other special occasion, Dads are notorious for either saying they don’t want anything or they want something basic like socks or a sweater. Well there is no way your going to buy him a sweater this year. It’s just not right! You’re Dad is too cool for something boring like that. You want to get him a great gift that he will really love!
The first question you should ask is, “What are his interests?” What does he spend most of his time doing, or wishes he was doing, and you’ll probably find some very good Dad birthday gifts ideas.
I’m the father of two boys and a girl and I like cars, trucks, motorcycles, tools, country music, writing articles like this one on my laptop, watching NASCAR, auto racing of all types, international soccer (especially the Premier League in the UK), playing the occasional game with my daughter on Xbox (all on our big screen TV), and working on projects around the house. So if someone was going to buy me a gift for my birthday something in those areas would be a good choice.
I’m also interested, like a lot of men seem to be, in new technology and electronics. With that in mind, some gifts that might be appropriate include a new larger flat screen TV, a new laptop, a media streaming box, a new tablet computer, a new game console, a backup camera for the truck, one of those new black box cameras for the car, a set of those new-fangled headphones, a new larger monitor to view the laptop on, and the list goes on.
All Dads spend some of their time doing things they don’t really enjoy, but it is their function around the house. That might include chores around the house, the honey-do list, yard work, and fixing things that continually seem to break. In those categories, you might choose from Dad Birthday gifts ideas that he would find useful and appreciate that make his life a little easier and those tasks he dreads not as dreadful.
For instance, it would make it easier to do his yard work if he had a vacuum/blower to clean up after he mows. Everyone needs to be prepared for getting stranded a car or truck with a dead battery; even Dad. A portable jump starter or some jumper cables might be a good choice for your Dad. Lot’s of Dads store cars, boats, motorcycles, ATVs, or water sports vehicles during the winter. It’s common for their batteries to go dead during storage, so getting him a combination battery tender and charger would make his life a whole lot easier in the Spring. He may enjoy building things or repairing things, but nobody likes the cleaning up part. Your could make it less of a pain with a good quality shop vac or wet/dry vacuum. Does he drink beer or wine? What about a fancy beer refrigerator, wine refrigerator, or kegerator for the den or man cave? Does your Dad enjoy the outdoors, adventure, and action? One of the hottest gift categories is the new action-adventure cameras designed to capture all those cool action-packed memories.
I think you get the idea; at least for me.
