Gift Certificates for Dad

Jun 10, 2010

Dads sure can be tricky to buy for! They always make it seem like they’ve already got everything they could ever need or want. Sometimes, when you ask what kind of gift they’d like for Father’s Day, they just tell you to be good or clean your room or help your mom or stop fighting with your brother or sister! Here’s our list of the best gift certificates to get dads that are impossible to shop for!

No. 1: Hardware Store

Face it: lots of dad like tools and tooling around the house. If your dad’s a Mr. Fix-it, go to your local hardware store and ask to purchase a gift card for your father.

No. 2: Music

We have yet to meet a dad who doesn’t love rocking out in the car while he’s driving. Whether he’s a rock-n-roll fan or just as into Justin Bieber as you are, get him a gift certificate to a music store or, better yet, to an online song store like iTunes.

No. 3: Books

Reading might not be YOUR fave thing to do, but if it’s something your dad does often, let him pick out his own library by getting him a gift card to a bookstore. There’s probably one by your house, or you can always get him credit at an online book seller like Amazon.

No. 4: Food

We all gotta eat! Get your dad a gift certificate to his fave restaurant or dessert place. You can even buy gift cards and load them up with dollars at the regular coffee shop he stops by every day before work!

No. 5: Events

OK, so this one’s more like a ticket than a certificate, but if you know of a major event that coming to our city or town in the near future, why not cop a pair of seats to it for you and your dad? It could be a baseball game or a concert or even just a movie – spending time with your dad is something he’ll probably appreciate more than anything you can buy him!

thanks for posting this Kristen. I think that it is a tough subject to talk about with other people and honestly I think it's good to talk about it in a moderate amount. Now that more pepole are being diagnosed with learning differences or some sort of other mental health disorder, I think that talking about it and informing people will only make it easier for people to feel less awkward or the odd man out. That's how I found about that I am not the only person in the room who has ADD. I'm more willing to come out and talk to people and discribe what I have to go through on a daily basis to raise awareness. School will always be hard for me so I look at my strengths to help push me forward in life.

Oh wow, a genuine trigger warning. Did the memes teach you nothing?  First off, an actual warning. Take no action based on what you've read here without first consulting a mental health professional.  Now, I have a lot of experience in mental illness. I have ADHD(Pre-DSMV), an anxiety disorder, and I've tested significant for bipolar (Pre-DSMV).  My best advise is to find a therapist that you personally connect with. It's not about being comfortable, because a good therapist will challenge your thoughts, but you need to be able to accept those challenges. And to do that, you'll need a therapist that you mesh with.  Aside from that, good medication can go a long way to helping you live with your mental issues. However, this isn't true for everyone, and it should be handled by a medical professional.
