I was reviewing my Father’s Day gift idea list from last year and it’s another reminder of how different life is post-2020. I wonder if we’ll ever have the carefree attitudes about road trips we once held. Father’s Day in our house often includes some sort of a getaway because it’s so close to our anniversary. However, there are some great ways to celebrate your favorite coach without traveling.
Father’s Day Gift Ideas
Support His Hobby (even if it’s new)
It’s been a season of forced stillness and many people have caught up on projects around their homes while others have used the time to explore expanding their interests. It’s important to keep the balanced perspective that at some point athletics will start up full force again, however, there is always time for additional interests. This is especially important when hobbies are used as a way to decompress and reduce stress.
When you support a hobby that encourages self-care you love your coach well:
- Pick up a new fishing rod, license, and bait
- Pick out a new grill master tools and seasonings
- Add a tool or buy the materials for the project he’s been working on
- Buy those new hiking boots he’s been eyeing
Customize Something Useful
Do you have a favorite photo? Add it to a mug, travel mug, keychain, or another item your husband uses frequently.
We’ve had a Shutterfly travel mug for several years. At one point we lost the lid and they even sent us a replacement.
For Christmas, I got Ordell a custom engraved pocket knife he picked out from ETSY and we were both pleasantly surprised and both the high-quality and the speed of its arrival.
Update His Wardrobe
I cannot stress this enough. If your husband has wanted to add to his wardrobe now is the time to do it. Go through those drawers and closets and see where the gaps in his day to day ensembles remain. You’ll find anything you want on sale if you price compare! Shop online and use Swagbucks or Rakuten to earn cashback on your purchases. Double your cash back benefits by shopping online at Kohl’s when there is a Kohl’s cash deal going or use a rewards credit card that you pay off right away to earn points and you’ll really stretch your dollars.
I did a round up of monthly subscription ideas for Mother’s Day and there are just as many fun ones for men.
- Man Crates includes several varieties of jerky, almonds, and cashews
- Check out these 10 Beer Subscription options from Urban Taste Bud
- Harry’s Shave Kit subscription
- Say it With Socks
- Blue Bottle Coffee
- Pig of the Month Club offers Gluten-Free options for your Grill Master
Create an Oasis
One thing I’ve focused on is making sure our outdoor spaces are inviting. We have collected a two-person hammock, an umbrella, a propane firepit, and really comfortable chairs. If we’re going to spend more time around our home we might as well enjoy the outdoor spaces as well! I’m looking to add some outdoor lights and ways to keep the bugs away in addition to bug spray.
However, you celebrate your favorite Coach this Father’s Day I hope you spend time relaxing together. It won’t be long before we’re back into the thick of the season with full to overflowing calendars. Take time to let your man know how much you value his presence on Father’s Day and every day.
