Interesting birthday presents for dads are always hard to find. It can be quite an ordeal trying to find meaningful alternatives to the traditional gifts for men, but with a little thought it is possible to find those presents that not only spark dad’s interest, but are also fun and functional. Most dads love practical gifts. It’s nigh on impossible to go wrong if this is kept in mind when choosing. It’s just a matter of finding something that he will appreciate. Consider, for example, a custom controller for his PlayStation. Custom controllers can be made for any game, and you can learn more about their features here.
Or, how about a beautifully engraved gift? Gifts with engraving are a nice way to give something personalized and unique. The name of the giver and the receiver can both be inscribed on the gift, along with a personal dedication or verse. Beer mugs, carafes, decanters, key chains, pocket knives, and photo frames, with meaningful messages all make truly special gifts.
Turn dad into a pool shark! He’ll enjoy hours of entertainment with a brand new pool table. For those with extra cash to splash, a glass pool table would be a major feature and talking point. Or really impress him with a waterproof pool table that can endure outdoor weather. If those ideas are a bit too budget-busting, then consider a traditional, or multi-game table, and don’t forget that all necessary accessory packs.
If his interests border more on the cerebral, then maybe a chess or backgammon set would be more fitting, perhaps? How about laboratory shot glasses complete with mixing pipettes for the keen mixologist, or thinking putty, the ultimate in stress relief and great for stimulating those creative juices. And not to be forgotten, the evergreen Rubik’s Cube (bet that will revive some memories)!
Does your dad have an exquisite taste that is impossible to confine to any one genre? Is he the suave sophisticate, always well dressed, with a perfectly maintained luxury car, does he savor only the finest malt whiskey and cigars, and always have the correct gadgets that make life that little bit easier? If so, it may be a little more difficult to find the right gift for him, but you can add to his collection of luxuries with an impressive espresso coffee maker, Zeitholz wooden watches, or golf clubs.
He is the Do-It-Yourself type from an age when males were proud of their role as the ultimate engineers of their abodes. Dad hasn’t encountered a problem he hasn’t been able to solve himself, and he tinkers continuously, crafting wondrous objects from raw materials, and flawlessly rewires circuits to upgrade the home. He travels near and far to find the precise parts or tools, and has absolutely no use for cufflinks and ties, so he will prefer appreciate something such as a drill, toolbox, or tool set that he can make regular use of while inspecting the house, yard or garage looking for the next challenging project.
