Dads have tough jobs. Some work hard to battle Larry the dreaded monster under your bed. Others have to get dressed and go to endless tea parties with Princess Peach. Some slave away building pillow forts, throwing balls, changing diapers, and going on fishing adventures.
Okay so maybe you’ve grown and he instead shares his shoulder rides, secrets from mom, cereal for dinner, and afternoon naps with his grandkids.
But just like old times, he still works hard to always be there to lift you up when you’ve fallen on hard times, to listen to you when you’ve lost your job, explain how to change a doorknob and to love you. It’s true that he won’t always be there to watch you grow with his grandkids, so why don’t you let him know you appreciate his love while you still can. Get him something really special for this father’s day, a present that says “I love you.”
We’ve rounded up great, heartfelt Father’s Day gifts for dads of all kinds, including your stepdad, father-in-law, godfather, and grandpa. The best thing about these gifts is that they are all customizable, so they can be tailored to your awesome monster-fight’n, tea-drinking, bad-joke-telling hero.
