A proper fathers day gift (provided one gives it to a father) should give the feeling of your respect and care. You would hardly expect a father showing too much excitement for getting a gift, after all, he just gets what is due to him. Main father's day gifts ideas clues can be the following:
His interests: To choose a gift, think what he would do if he had more time. Every one of us has those deep dreams or wishes, always postponed due to seemingly more urgent needs. A good fathers day gift fitted for the father's interests, would give a fresh and new impact, inducing him to enrich the life by simply using your gift!
His experience: Unlike the previous fathers day gift idea, the gifts related to the father's life experience, must give new shine and value to the treasure already gained. Try to draw attention to his most unique experience, which you (and he) consider to be real achievements. A good gift of this kind, being a new hello from the good old days, would refresh his memory of the past, so that it would affect the future as well!
Your family/relationships: To choose father's day gift you need to be more creative. The main gift idea is to show how important your relationships are. Try to find any moments when you shared joy or excitement, learning or help, challenges and victories. Choose a gift symbolizing one or some of these moments with clear meaning. After all, you are the main result of all his life!
Practical: The list of the basic men's needs is endless. Pondering mind with loving attitude would easily find a proper useful fathers day gift. Two things to avoid are to give too large gifts thus showing lack of subordination, and to give gifts implying weakness and a need for ultimate care. Even simple practical father day gifts must reflect his higher social position and his role as a leader and a father.
