We all love and adore the father figures in our lives. They are our pillars in life and have gifted us with the gift of life, to us or our children. Lucky for us, there’s a whole day dedicated for them in the calendar, during when we can spoil them even more than we usually do.
Do you think it’s difficult to find the right gift for the dads in your life with Father’s Day being just around the corner? We can help you save all the trouble of trying to figure out what you want to give him this year. Having been with him for a long time, you probably know what his taste in gifts is. May be he would love the idea of a fine bottle of whisky that he can sip to wind down after a long day. Does he have a sweet tooth? Then maybe get him a nice, premium box of chocolates. If you’re looking to spend more quality time with him, perhaps a game board would be a good choice.
You might even want to give him a personalized gift this year. Whether you are with him or live away from him, it is guaranteed to make him feel thought of and happy. Moreover, no matter what type of dad he is, by personalizing your gift, you can give him the kind of present that reflects his personality and the special type of relationship you have with him. What’s special about personalized gifts is that they are just that. Personal. They make the receiver feel cared for and loved in a way that standard presents can’t.
When giving a personalized gift, your options are endless. You can give him a keychain with a picture of your choice. Maybe with one of your favorite pictures with him, that time you both went camping or when he attended your graduation ceremony. If it’s for your partner, you could gift him a dog chain and a pendant with a picture of the best gift he has given you – your children. If the father in your life is someone that’s always on the go, they might love the idea of a versatile, multi-tool keychain, on which you can have your personal message engraved. Always having little snippets of your favorite memories with them or being able to read a loving message from you wherever they are, will surely bring a smile to their face, even when they least expected it.
Use this opportunity you get every year to show the fathers in your lives, just how much you appreciate and care for them. While quality time and words of endearment are a must, it certainly wouldn’t hurt to accompany those with presents, to really make their day.
Gifting is an age-old way of making the dear ones in your lives feel cared for and a way of thanking others for their thoughtful gestures toward you. Receiving a verbal thank you supplemented with a gift – however big or small, is something that most people would appreciate. Whether it is your wedding anniversary that you celebrate with your beloved, a token of appreciation for your father on Father’s Day, a sign of thanks to someone who has helped you during challenging times, or even just as an indicator of how much you love and miss a dear one, a gift can convey a thousand thoughts and feelings. Receiving a gift from a special someone can instantly take you back to some of the best memories you’ve shared with them. Gifts can enhance the important relationships in your life.
Among other types of gifts, personalized gifts stand out because of the room it allows for you to customize your present in a unique way. Your present could reflect the kind of relationship you have with your loved one, whether it is characterized by humor, encouragement, companionship or support. You also have the freedom of choosing the right words to celebrate the unique personality of your dear ones. Moreover, no matter what the occasion is, you can include whichever words you want to, to tell them exactly what they’ve brought to your life and others around them and why they are valued.
Personalized gifts come in all different types. Personalized and engraved cufflinks are getting popular. You could get a pair for your wedding’s best man as a way of thanking them for their support. Getting your spouse who is the father to your children, a pair of cufflinks with their names engraved in them could lead to a pleasant surprise for him too.
Personalized necklaces are also very popular. There are sets that you can get, for example ones with 2 halves of a heart as pendants with a name on each half, for yourself and your loved one to wear. This may make the perfect wedding anniversary gift. You could get one even for your best friend who may be moving abroad, to show how much they mean to you.
One of the more unique personalized gifts is lighters that can also have engravings in them. You could get your good friend one with his picture and your wish engraved on it and they will have something to remind them of you, every time they use it.
Personalized gifts with engravings has taken the art of gift giving to a new level. As it combines everyday tools or adornments with words and pictures of endearment, they could be a powerful way to show love to the people that mean much to you.
With quarantine and social distancing becoming the everyday norm, staying and feeling close to your loved ones is starting to feel like an impossible reality. The good news is that now there are countless creative and effortless ways you can spread love to them. Gift giving can be a great way of bridging the never-felt-so-strongly-before gap, between you and your loved ones. Receiving a gift when you’ve just been FaceTime calling would be far more refreshing for the receiver and they will surely find your gesture thoughtful and endearing. Often as the giver themselves, you will feel a sense of positive gratification about the act too. Carlos Ruiz Zafón, in his novel ‘The Shadow of the Wind’ says “Presents are made for the pleasure of who gives them, not the merits of who receives them”.
During birthdays, anniversaries and other special occasions, with gift shops and other non-essential outlets being closed, this is a perfect way to send love and good wishes. You don’t; always need a special occasion to create an opportunity for you to give gifts to your close ones. Self-isolation and other not-so-favorable life changes might have gotten the better of your loved ones’ mental and emotional health. It can feel debilitating to not be able to reach out and embrace those close to you, especially knowing they are going through particularly tough times. A little something that lets your family member or friend know that you have been thinking of them, better yet one that explicitly carries a note of love like a personalized gift, might help them feel supported and less lonely.
A personalized gift is far more special than the usual one, for it says something about the unique relationship you have with your close one and can make them feel more cared for. The extra effort you put into it when you choose exactly the right words to make them feel supported or when you select a picture of your favorite memory with them, it makes it a charming little expression of your love to them. A keyring with a personal message or a picture of you and your dearest together or a necklace with a pendant containing an engraved note of love for them, could lighten up their mood and invoke much needed hope during these overwhelming times. Best thing about it is that the process of personalized gift giving can be done at the comfort of your home in a safe manner without having to risk your health.
In the wake of the coronavirus (or COVID-19) pandemic, we are all looking for new ways to feel close and show gratitude to our family, friends and beloveds. Perhaps sharing gifts will help us do just that and still continue to cherish and celebrate our loved ones, despite the trying times.
