Thinking Outside the Box: How to Choose a Unique Gift for Dad

Dads are notoriously hard to buy for, and it can be difficult to find a gift that they will appreciate and make the most out of. Unlike other gift guides, we aren’t going to suggest getting him a watch or engraved towel that will sit in the closet for years. We’ve got some different categories and ideas on how you can find a unique gift for the dad or father figure in your life. Whether you’re prepping for Christmas, have a birthday coming up or you just want to show them how much they mean to you, we’ve got you covered.

Golf Subscription Box

Depending on what he’s interested in, you might want to get your dad a subscription box that will give monthly deliveries containing things that can fuel their hobbies and interests. A golf subscription box is bound to please the dad in your life, offering regular installments of equipment,

gloves, and tips. Follow the link above for an easy-to-follow guide to help you find the best gold subscription box for you. With 12 options to choose from, varying in quality and price, there will definitely be something that your dad will approve of.  

Subscription boxes are the gift that keeps on giving. From international coffee roasters to a gardening bundle for the green-fingered dad in your life. Monthly deliveries are a great way to show someone that you care and that you were thinking of them. These can be as personal as you like and

can even include an added note to say thank you for always giving you advice, or for encouraging you to be the best version of yourself.  

Tool Box

We appreciate that not all dads like to golf and have some other options if you don’t think that a subscription box would be his thing. A gift for someone who is a bit of a handyman could be a new toolbox or piece of equipment for their man-cave. Of course, toolboxes can be pricey and not everyone needs a new one, so you could try to take note of which tools they are missing in their collection and head to Home Depot. Give them something that they will make use of for years to come, and see their face light up when they see that you’ve really spent the time thinking about what they needed.   

Hobby Gifts

If your dad loves being out on the open water, then a gift for boat owners is a great idea. You could get him a new set of navigational maps or a Fish Finder to help him find the perfect spot to drop anchor. If he’s more of a recreational boater, then some new boating accessories like a cooler or folding chair would be appreciated. For the dad who loves to fish, a new fishing rod or reel would be a great gift. Whatever his level of interest in boating, you’re sure to find something that will make his time out on the water even more enjoyable.

Experience Day

Another idea if you don’t want to give a material item is to plan or book an experience day. There are many ways of finding a custom experience that your dad will like, including sitting in a sports car, hot air balloon ride, a trip to The Georgia Rodeo or even a guided tour through a historical town complete with ghost stories. However, a more budget-friendly option is to choose a day when you are both free in the next few months or book it off work if you need to, make a reservation at your dad’s favorite restaurant, and plan a whole day

together. Make a schedule and decorate it, so this can be what you put in his birthday, or Christmas card.  

Simple activities like baking and decorating a cake together to pottery classes, or showing him your favorite spots in town. Your dad will appreciate the sentiment and thought that you put into it, and reserving a day for quality time to reconnect and do what you both love cannot be priced. You

could even get him to show you his favorite stores or coffee spots and build fun outfits together at second-hand stores.  

Build-Your-Own Kit

If your dad enjoys making things with his hands and is always on the hunt for a new project, he might like a kit as a unique gift. Creative kits come in all shapes and sizes and are also available as subscription boxes. Some great ideas for your dad could be construction kits, some have directions

to build mini figurines. Other options could be more food-inspired, such as brew-your-own beer, or craft-your-own burger containing different meats, cheese, and salad options to get creative with the next time the grill is fired up.  

To summarize, dads are pretty difficult to categorize, and it’s hard to find a perfect gift for them. Subscription boxes are a great way to give something back and show them that you love them. 

Whether your dad is a keen golf player, looking to get into it, or wants to try a new project, hopefully, these ideas have given you some inspiration, and you won’t be empty-handed at the next birthday or even at Christmas.
