Adult Kids looking for Father’s Day Ideas

Since adult children were once younger children, they have much more time and experience with brainstorming Father’s Day ideas. Here are some more ideas that might be fun to use on grand ol’ Father’s Day.

Looking for gifts can be either difficult or easy for your dad depending on what he has already. You also want to make sure you do not get the same gift that you got him last year, or the year before. Repetition is boring and dads usually have enough ties and books to read. If he is an avid reader then new books are ok. Clothing is a bit harder to choose and to buy for fathers, so it is best to keep it simple. Here are some best bets when it comes to buying for your dad on Father Day.

* If your dad has a favorite car, boat, dog, animal etc. you can get an artist to paint or draw a portrait for him.
* Gift Certificates are always a good bet for clothing options
* Brand new DVD’s or DVD’s of his favorite show
* A subscription to a magazine that he loves
* Tickets to his favorite sporting event
* Take him out to see his favorite band play
* Write him a poem if you are feeling expressive
* Get something engraved that he can cherish
* Buy a book from his favorite author
* Take him to see a blockbuster hit with his favorite actor

Every dad is different and each has a different taste from the next. The most important thing is making the effort on Father’s Day. It is the time taken to find the gift or plan something that is appreciated, not the actual gift. Study what your dad likes and enjoys, and then ideas will start coming out of the blue. You can blend two activities in the day or possibly have lunch after seeing one of his favorite actors in film. It is always nice to have some part of the day where you can sit and talk about general things and catch up. Chances are, you do not get to see your dad as often as you use to, so this day is only centered on Dad! Remind your dad of how much you love him and thank him for being there for you when you needed him. Expressions from the heart will always be appreciated by your dad, whether on paper or verbally.
