Father's Day Ideas

By Anne Harvester

Father's Day presents a great opportunity to show your father how much you love and care for him. Traditionally, on Father's Day you might give your special dad a nice meal and some type of a gift to celebrate all that he does or has done for you. One especially thoughtful Father's Day gift is a gift basket that has been tailored to all of his particular likes. Here are some ideas for making Father's Day gift baskets extra special.

One way to make your Father's Day gift especially memorable is to build a gift basket around a particular theme. You will want to think of sports or hobbies that your father enjoys, because any of them might make a great gift basket theme.

If your father is a baseball fan, you could focus a gift basket around that sport. Include such items as a baseball cap from his favorite team, and a pennant. Gift wrapping the basket, including colorful ribbons and bows, in the team colors will all go toward making a favorable impression on your dad.

Maybe your father loves to spend his free time out in the garage or workshop making woodworking projects, or working on an automobile. These activities would make super gift basket themes as well. You could put some small chisels, planers, sand paper, screws and nails into the woodworker's basket. Wrenches, as well as car wash and wax would be an excellent choice for the auto enthusiast. Favorite magazines on either topic would also be welcomed by your father, and make a great addition to a gift basket for him.

If your father loves to travel, you could put together a regional gift basket based on a place he has visited. If he loves France, you could include a French cookbook, a small French flag and postcards along with French favorites such as an assortment of olives, anchovies, even truffles and wine for which the country is famous.

If your father enjoys cooking, gourmet Father's Day gift baskets would be in order. If he is a barbecue lover, your basket could consist of varieties of gourmet barbecue sauces and culinary brushes for their application, as well as a colorful pair of hot pads and a barbecue cookbook.

Every dad loves to take time out to relax. Why not give your father a great spa gift basket, and be sure to include luxury items such as scented soaps, shampoos, body sponges, scented candles and a neck pillow so he can enjoy his time in the tub. Personalized Father's Day gifts are always appropriate because they show that you took the time and put the thought into a great gift for your father on his special day.
