1. A Handwritten Card
You can never go wrong with writing out how special your dad or grandpa is to you. A handwritten message in the Father’s Day card you were probably already planning to pick up from the store, will add that special touch and give him something to hold onto. Cards can also be enjoyed on their fridge or near their bedside as a special reminder of how much you care for them each day. You can also take it a step further, if you’re the crafty type, design the whole card from scratch or opt for a digital card or recording of you and your loved ones wishing Pops a very Happy Father’s Day.
2. A Gift Card
Many people brush off gift cards as impersonal or lazy, but if you put a bit of intention behind it, a gift card can be just as meaningful as the most well thought out gift. If you decide to get him a gift card to his favorite restaurant, maybe also make a reservation when you know he’s free. Make note of his favorite stores, or if there’s something you know Dad’s been wanting to buy, get him a gift card to help make him make the purchase. It shows that you’ve been paying close attention to what he’s been talking about or interested in – always a thoughtful gesture.
3.A Digital Photo Frame
Photos are a keepsake that many of us build up over the years, and it gets to a point where we simply cannot display all the wonderful photos of family, friends, and memories throughout our home. This is especially true, if your loved one is living in a senior living care community. Digital photo frames solve that issue by putting all your pictures into one simple place. Not only does it save space, but it allows for hundreds of pictures to be displayed through a slideshow.
4. Reading Tablet
Help Dad read more books this year without overfilling his bookshelf! Gift him with more than a million books, ready to read with a reading tablet. Reading tablets are another great space saving gift, especially if your father figure is an avid reader! Plus, many come with adjustable lighting and font options, which can be much easier on the eyes. Pick out a few books you think he might like and load them onto the tablet before gifting it, so Dad can get right to reading.
5. DNA Testing Kit
If you know Dad or Grandpa has always been curious about his ancestry (and maybe, you are too) pick up an ancestry DNA testing kit. There are quite a few to choose from nowadays, so make sure you do your research to find the right one for your dad or grandpa. Once the test is sent in, get together to look over the results! You might be quite surprised on what you find out about your family lineage.
