4 Gift Ideas to Make Your Dad Smile This Father’s Day

Updated: Dec 5, 2023

Father’s Day isn’t just a day for dads to get more stuff. It’s to honor grandfathers, dads, step-dads, and all men who act as a father figure.

Father’s Day: A Brief History

Father’s Day was first proposed by Sonora Smart Dodd. Sonora was raised by her father, Civil War veteran, William Jackson Smart – he was a single parent who raised his six children.

After hearing a sermon about Mother’s Day at Central Methodist Episcopal Church, Sonora told her pastor that fathers should have a similar holiday honoring them. Although she originally suggested the celebration to be held on June 5 (her father’s birthday), the pastors didn’t have enough time to prepare their sermons, and so the celebration was moved to the third Sunday of June.

The first Father’s Day celebration was held in Spokane, Washington at the YMCA in 1910.

Thanks to Sonora Smart Dodd’s love for her father, we now have a day to acknowledge and celebrate the important role played by our fathers!

Father’s Day Gift Ideas

This year, Father’s Day falls on June 21.

Looking for the perfect gift for your dad? Depending on your dad’s interests, hobbies, and interests, there’s a perfect gift out there for him. If you’re not sure where to start, we have listed down 4 gift ideas that will help you make lasting memories.

1. Prepare your dad’s favorite meal.

You don’t have to take your dad out to a fancy dinner to let him know how much you appreciate him on Father’s Day. For a twist on a common Father’s Day tradition, why not prepare your dad’s favorite meal at home? You’ll save some money by doing the cooking yourself, but most importantly, he’ll appreciate all the effort you put into a home-made meal.

2. Get your dad some tools – and build something together.

If your dad is the type who’s happiest when fixing or building things, tools may be a great Father’s Day gift idea! From hand and power tools to mechanics’ tools – and even tools for computer and electronics repair – there’s something out there for your dad. But don’t just give your dad an electronics repair tool kit or hammer set and call it a day. Ask your dad to help you with a DIY or home improvement project to break in his new gift. After all, spending time with your dad is what’s most important on Father’s Day!

3. Get him a gadget he’d enjoy using.

From smartphones, computers, gaming consoles, to cameras – some dads LOVE gadgets and couldn’t be happier to spend hours playing with them. Do some research on the latest gadgets, cameras, or video games your dad enjoys using and get it for him. He will surely be thrilled with his present!

4. Schedule a Father’s Day movie night.

Do you usually have a family movie night? This isn’t all too different, except that you give exclusive movie selection rights to your dad! In honor of Father’s Day, let your dad choose all of the movies that your family has to watch. Whether it’s his favorite action flick or a movie he enjoyed watching while growing up, watching his favorite movie will definitely put a smile on your dad’s face.

Whatever you decide to do for your dad this Father’s Day, the good news is it doesn’t have to break the bank. No matter how simple or extravagant your gift is, remember that nothing beats spending time with your dad on this special day. Spending time with your dad and making memories that will last a lifetime is one of the best gifts you can give your dad.

Working alone in your business?

The business that you were so passionate about when you first started...but lately, you've been feeling like it's swallowing you whole.

Because, if you didn't turn the wheels in your business, who will?

Your free time must be disappearing as you work on email backlogs, unanswered social media DMs, video/podcast editing, client onboarding, and a BAZILLION other tasks you hardly have time for.😢

This is usually what happens when you have no team to back you up.

You probably had a solo virtual assistant in the past, but it didn't work out because you didn't have a task delegation system yet.

Maybe your virtual assistant needed you to train them, but you just didn't have the time and the mood for hand holding. You need someone who can hit the ground running!

Or, it could be that you did find an amazing virtual assistant, but they couldn't take up the huge load of work. It was too much for one person to handle.

So they quit on you, and now you're back to square one. 😭

It's important for you to know that

this is NOT your fault. 🙅

You are just trying to build your business empire. 💰

Because you've had so much business coming in, your task load is also growing at a rate
that you can't keep up with anymore. 🚀

So, how would it feel if you had an instant ROCKSTAR TEAM?

A team you can assign some or ALL of your tasks to? 🙋

A complete crew of virtual assistants that already had a task coordination and team management system in place.

All that's left to do is
and the team will follow your footsteps.

With your business operations delegated to the 8point8 Virtual Assistant Team
you can have MORE TIME to be inspired & creative!

You can finally claim back your time freedom.
