On June 17th it is Father's Day. On this day, go ahead and pamper your dad with lot of kind words and affection – and of course presents that show him that you care. "But wait," you might say, "Isn't dad impossible to shop for?" You are right, most dads are. A pair of socks or a bottle of aftershave are classic but also a bit boring gifts. This year, put some thought into the perfect present to make sure that your father feels your affection. Here is a list of presents for four types of fathers: the relaxed, the well-groomed, the active, and the downright tired one.
Gifts for the Relaxed dad
What man doesn't love to like to relax in front of the TV when the news or a good game is on? Make sure that dad is super comfy with a nice armchair, where he can kick up his feet after a hard day's work.
Gifts for the well-groomed dad
Does dad like to look after himself? Items for personal care aren't just for your mother. Make sure dad has the right equipment to stay in shape and look the best he can.
Gifts for the active dad
If dad loves to work in the garden, make sure that he can enjoy the fruits of his labor in a nice chair with a cool drink. Is dad an active, outdoorsy type who enjoys fresh air and a good hike? Help him follow his passion with the right equipment.
Gifts for the tired dad
Does dad deserve a good night's sleep or do you want to pay him back for all those times that you woke him up at night either as s baby or possibly as a teenager coming home late? Get him a nice duvet and pillow set so he can sleep in.
