“The power of a dad in a a child’s life is unmatched.”
Father’s Day this year is definitely going to be a different one as 2020 has been a really crazy year for a lot of us! However, now more than ever we need to celebrate the fathers in our lives and show them just how much we appreciate them.
Below you will find a couple of gift ideas for dad!

The Gift of Time
If you read my Mother’s Day Gift Guide post, you noticed I included this as an idea over there too. The gift of time simply means you give Dad some time to himself.
What he decides to do during this time is completely up to him. I know during this pandemic a lot of dads have been working non-stop so having a little bit of time to themselves will definitely be appreciated!
For some dads this may mean a fishing trip with friends, or maybe some alone time to catch up on sports. Whatever Dad chooses to do is completely up to him!
Self-care is not just for women! Men need time to care for themselves too, specially dads that are always busy and on the move.
Some dads may want a gym membership, others may want a trip to the barbershop, while others maybe want an at home kit like the one pictured below from Etsy. Whatever self-care routine dad has, make sure to keep it in mind this year!
You can grab the luxurious shaving kit HERE.
Self-development was mentioned in our Mother’s Day Gift Guide as well and for a great reason! We never have to stop working on ourselves!
Picking an enrichment activity will be up to what Dad has been into lately. Maybe he wants a session at the shooting range, or maybe he’s had his eye on an online course. Take a minute to ask and find out what he’d prefer!
Replace old items
Dads are notorious for holding on to very old things. What better opportunity than Father’s Day to replace a couple of them!
For my husband’s first Father’s Day, we gifted him a personalized wallet that had a quote engraved inside and he absolutely loved it!
Food & Drink Outings
My husband just like many dads out there don’t always get a proper sit-down lunch break therefor a couple gift cards to Dad’s fave restaurants are always a hit!
If the dad in your life, enjoys going out for a drink, you can definitely gift that instead!
A dad we certainly cannot forget is Grandpa!
Of course if you ask him what he wants he may say that time with his grandkids is plenty, but dig a little deeper and maybe gift him something personalized like this decanter and glass set below.
You can find it over at our Gifts by Lizzy gift shop.
Not only will grandpa have a unique gift, but you will also be supporting a small business!
Whether the dad in your life is into car modifications, drones, or any other hobby, gifting them something hobby specific is always a plus!
Gift your dad something simple yet useful like a personalized tee!
Over at Gifts by Lizzy there’s several designs to choose from and if you’d rather have a custom design made, that is also an option!
Maybe your hubs has had his eye on the latest headphones, or maybe it’s time to upgrade his phone. Electronics are always a good option!
So Mami, what are you thinking of gifting Dad this year?
Whichever gift you end up picking, what really matters most, specially during times like this, is the love and appreciation you show him!
Talk soon Mami!
