Why are you interested in the best Fathers Day gift? Because you love your dad right? If he’s anything like my dad, and I’m sure he is, he’s always been there when you needed him. At the time any advice he had given may not have sat well with you but in the end he was always right. Over time you learned that he always had your best interest at heart. Besides, you love him because he’s your dad. As to what makes the best Fathers Day gift, that all depends on what type of dad he is. This is where you need to become like a gift detective as I described in the post called How To Buy The Perfect Gift.

Naturally being your dad makes the job a hell of a lot easier than having to buy something for someone who you don’t know that well. Ask yourself, what sort of dad is he?

  • Is he a DIY dad.
  • Sporty dad
  • Gadget dad
  • A typical hobby dad
  • A Media Mogul
  • Trendy Dad

Once you’ve answered that question you half way to getting your dad the best Fathers Day Gift. For the purpose of this post we’re going to be looking at the best Fathers Day gift for your everyday DIY type of father. I’ll be discussing the other types of fathers in future posts.

Best Fathers Day Gift For The DIY Dad

I personally think that the best gift you can give a DIY dad is a cordless drill. Mine’s almost had its day and I know that’s what I would love as a Fathers Day gift. Cordless drills make jobs around the house so much easier, and the DEWALT DCD760KL 18-Volt 1/2-Inch Cordless Compact Lithium-Ion drill looks like it would do the job. Not as cheap as some you’ll find on the market but then at least you know it’s not going to fail him when he really needs it. Read the rest of this entry

In this modern world of technology of ours it’s not at all surprising that we consider giving our parents an iPad for their birthday. This is especially true as they hit their sixtieth or seventieth birthday as it’s a pretty big milestone and we generally want to go that extra mile by getting something extra special. So, why shouldn’t we get them an iPad?  After all, it’s the latest in technology, it allows them access to the World Wide Web opening up so many social sites to them like FaceBook and Twitter. Of course being limited to only 140 characters on Twitter may be a bit of a challenge for some of the old folk.  :tongue:

Another great positive for the iPad is that it’s made by Apple and everybody knows how good Apples are. I’m sure you’ve heard more than once from the old folks how an apple a day keeps the doctor away, right?  :crazy:
