Six Father’s Day Gifts Any Dad Will Love

Thursday, June 16th, 2016


Father’s Day is less than a week away, and that means it’s time to hunt down the right gifts for that special guy who has always been there for you. Dads can be frustratingly tough to shop for, and that means we usually fall into the cliché presents and celebration tactics that we did last year, the year before that, and so on—you get the picture. If you want to really celebrate your Dad in style this year and make for a Father’s Day he’ll always remember and cherish, consider these unique and sentimental Father’s Day gifts he’ll actually love this June – most of which you can have delivered.

Make a Special Meal

What guy can say no to a warm meal prepared with love? Sometimes the simplest of gestures are the ones that mean the most. Get the family together to whip up Dad’s favorites in the kitchen and cater a meal specifically to his tastes. The fact that his family worked together to create a special meal for him and that he gets to enjoy a laughter-filled dinner with all the people he loves most is sure to be a wonderful gift for Father’s Day. Even if you’re not a chef extraordinaire, the effort is what counts. When it comes time to sit around the table and eat, make sure it’s a technology-free zone. It’s so easy to get distracted by the chime or lights of our phones and other gadgets, so make sure this night is all about Dad.

A Special Relaxation Spot

What dad doesn’t want to kick his feet up and take a well-deserved nap every once in awhile? If your dad works hard and you want to give him his own special place to have that relaxation time he so truly deserves, consider investing in a luxurious hammock. Dads tend to be on the more practical side, and what could be more practical than a prime nap spot? Hammocks come at a variety of price points in a surprising array of designs and materials. If you’re looking for the perfect hammock for Dad, check out Yellow Leaf Hammocks for a stylish and comfy new hanging bed.

If He’s an Avid Reader

Does your dad scour stores for new mystery novels, devour the classics likes of Hemingway and Orwell, or love losing himself in a great adventure story? If your dad is a literature maven, then you can’t go wrong with a gift that helps him pursue his favorite passion. If he doesn’t yet have a Kindle, or has been resistant, it’s time to help him take the plunge. While he might say he prefers the turn of pages and smell of old books, sometimes it just takes a little nudge to show how convenient technology can make reading and discovering new books. You can get an Amazon Kindle for $59.99 on Amazon as of June 15, 2016.

Spend a Day Together

As we get older, life gets impossibly busy and tends to throw more our way than we can handle, and sometimes the important things- like time with day- get shoved to the wayside. So, have all the kids set aside the day, and spend it with him doing all the things he loves. Maybe it’s a barbecue and backyard games, or a trip to sit on the beach. Focus on your dad throughout the day, and make sure he gets to bask in the glow of his loving family. If you do end up having a barbecue, you can also surprise him with a new set of barbecue tools. You can get the best seller Mr. Bar-B-Q 94001X 18-Piece Stainless-Steel Barbecue Set with Storage Case on Amazon for $19.49 as of June 15, 2016.

Compile Some Memories

Throughout your life you’ve likely made a cache of wonderful memories with your dad, so why not pay homage to these memories? Document each in their own individual letter, wrap them up in some cute envelopes, and tie together for a bundle of gifts that he can open all at once or savor and open each day or week for the next little while. If envelopes aren’t for you, try to put them together in a lovely scrapbook that you can decorate yourself. You can get a SiCoHome scrapbook on Amazon for $13.99 as of June 15, 2016. Maybe you can even get his friends and other family members in on the surprise.

Office Surprises

If your dad is a busy guy who’s constantly putting in hours at work, make the long days move that much quicker with some fun office surprises. Send a bottle of specialty wine straight to his desk, drop off a Father’s Day gift basket at his office, or show up with lunch in the middle of a long work day to break up the slow-moving hours. He’s sure to be proud of your effort to make his day special and get to show his colleagues and employees just how loved he is.

With Father’s Day on the horizon, make sure you find a unique gift that will make Dad feel cherished and loved on this special day. Get creative for a memorable celebration that he’ll surely love.

5 Ways to Bond with Your Dad this Father’s Day

Sunday, June 15th, 2014

Written by Ezra Schwartz

Your dad has always been there for you. Whether he was playing catch with you for the first time or, dressed as a princess, enduring your tea party, he’s always been around to put a smile on your face. Even if he didn’t want to be there, even if he had work to do, even if there was a game on, Dad was always there to do what you love.

Which is why the most important thing to do this Father’s Day is to return the favor and spend time with Dad. Sure, you can still buy him a tie, watch, grill spatula, or any other cliched gift, but what Dad really wants is your time. Here are 5 ways that you can bond with your dad on June 15th, and make it the best Father’s Day he’s ever had.

5. Spend it Outdoors!

The wonderful thing about Father’s Day is that it takes place in mid-June, the ideal time for outdoor activities. Whether this means going to the beach, having a picnic in the park, taking a hike in the woods, or just having a nice barbecue, make sure to take advantage of the beautiful weather.

4. Make His Favorite Food

Whether your dad was the one who cooked in your house or not, he will definitely appreciate a meal with his favorite dish. It might mean going out to a fancy restaurant, or staying in and cooking yourself, but either way, it is a gesture that your father will love.

3. Go to a Baseball Game

What better bonding activity is there than baseball? For over a century, dads have been taking their sons and daughters out to the old ballgame. It’s a classic way to spend the day, and if he loves the food at the park, this one can combine the previous two tips!

2. Bring Your Kids!

While Dad may love spending time with you, chances are he loves spending time with your kids, as well. This day is not only about cherishing old memories, but about creating new ones, and there is no better way of doing that than with the new generation. Dad loves his grandkids and they love him, so whatever you do, be sure to bring them along!

1. Just Do What He Loves!

You know your dad better than we do, so you know best how to make his day perfect! Dad has something that he loves to do, and whatever it is, just do that with him. Even (and especially) if that means just sitting on the couch with a beer and watching the game or his favorite movie, make sure that Dad can do what he wants, and make sure to do it with him!

Whatever you do this Father’s Day, make sure that everything is working in the house. It wouldn’t be fun if the TV, computer, or air conditioning didn’t work. You can also make sure that the lawn looks perfect, and that all of Dad’s Sunday chores are done.

We here at TalkLocal would like to wish a Happy Father’s Day to all of the dads out there! Thank you for all that you do!

Happy Fuss Over Father’s Day

Happy Fuss Over Father's Day - Seva Call

Quick! Before he barricades himself in his man cave until this whole thing blows over, attack your dear old dad with your full nuclear family arsenal: kisses, hugs, and the kind of mushy stuff that you can’t use to pave the driveway.

And, for the love of dads: do something different this year. Every year poor dad gets tied down, cuffed, or smothered. He already has more patterned strips of fabric than you’d need to hogtie a herd of elephants, so no more ties. And gold cufflinks? He may be worth his weight in gold, but his sleeves aren’t designed to bare that kind of weight. Lastly, if you don’t like his smell after he finishes investing another bucket-worth of sweat equity into the house, don’t cover it up with more cologne when you can just feed the honey do list through the shredder, turn on the fan, blow a kazoo, and toss his worries to the wind like so much confetti!

Fuss Over Father’s Day No More

You know that emotionally stirring moment when dad presses his fingers to either side of his nose, and a single tear slips down his cheek, but then he pulls it together, but everybody is full-out bawling because if dad cries then it’s totally a big deal? You know what we’re talking about. Now, did it ever happen after you gave him a tie? Of course not.

So, because he deserves much better than a case of Dadja vu, consider these great gift ideas:

– Give dad a hand with needed repairs, hand them over to a handyman.

– Kick-boxing anyone? Kick his heart health into high gear with some personal training sessions.

– Take away that tension trapped in his back and shoulders with a professional massage.

– If he’s bending and lifting with difficulty, that makes cleaning a challenge. So, hire a maid to clean every nook and cranny of the castle.

– Does dad dress like a 1950’s panhandler with ill-fitting jackets and trousers? Bag him and his baggy suits and drag them to a tailor.

In fact, Seva Call has over 50 service categories, and he’d be happy to see just about anything get done with one exception: he’d probably hate dentists, so wait until after Father’s Day to book that cleaning.

 Seva Call Has You Covered

Other than that, you can spoil dad right out of his shell with unforgettable gifts and experiences just by going to and submitting a service request. Then, stand by to talk to a top-rated pro in seconds. You’ll make dad wish he could hang your present on the refrigerator, but he can’t… the magnetic force isn’t strong enough. He will be, however, happy that you were so thoughtful… for once.

Happy Father’s Day from the Seva Call Team.
