Let’s be honest, figuring out what to get your dad for Father’s Day can be a bit paralyzing. Even for us—and we live and breathe all things gifting! It’s a lot of pressure, especially this year because of the pandemic and varying social distancing restrictions across the nation. Being able to spend the day with your dad in person may not be possible, so you need a gift that not only celebrates Father’s Day but lets your dad know how much you love and miss him during this incredibly uncertain time.
Use This Easy Exercise to Figure Out What to Get Your Dad for Father’s Day
In moments of paralysis such as this, we like to fall back on a very simple exercise to help us figure out what to get dad for Father’s Day. Here’s how it works. Take a moment to visualize your gift recipient, your dad in this case, when he is most ‘in his element’. What is he doing? Is he playing or cuddling with the family pet? Grilling in the back yard? Endlessly, watching the travel channel? Obsessing over brewing the perfect cup of coffee? Capture that essence in your mind and channel it into a gift customized around his favorite moments.
