5 Father's Day Gift Ideas Dad Will Love

Father's Day is fast approaching on Sunday, June 21st, but there's still time to celebrate Dad from near or far! Here are some thoughtful and affordable gift ideas for every type of dad:

For the Grill-Master

If your dad loves to fire up the grill, you can't go wrong with grilling gadgets and accessories. Grab a basket and fill it with grill-themed goodies like heat-resistant gloves, spring-loaded grill tongs, a digital meat thermometer and a few bottles of tasty sauces or marinades.

For the Sports Enthusiast

Whether your dad loves playing sports or watching them, he's sure to appreciate a gift inspired by his favorite sport. If you're feeling crafty, consider making a scrapbook or memory box with saved ticket stubs from memorable games. Another DIY idea is to personalize a ball (basketball, golf ball, baseball, etc.) with a special message to your dad using waterproof markers.

For the History Buff

Does your dad have a passion for the past? Maybe he'd like a new biography, trivia game or subscription to an online ancestry service. For a special and inexpensive gift, digitize old family photos by scanning them to a computer. You can then order prints to frame or create a digital scrapbook or slideshow.

For the Music Fan

“Rock out" this Father's Day with music-themed gifts for Dad like noise-canceling headphones or a wireless speaker. Another gift idea for a music-loving dad is to create a retro mixtape or playlist of songs that remind you of him. If your dad prefers vinyl records, try searching local thrift stores or online auction sites for unique albums.

For Every Dad: Quality Time

You don't have to spend money on an elaborate gift to show Dad you care. For many dads, the most meaningful Father's Day gift is quality family time. If you're not able to celebrate together in person, be sure to call or schedule a video chat. You can even set up a virtual game night or stream a favorite TV show or movie together!

Happy Father's Day from all of us at Wright-Patt Credit Union!
