Some of the best father’s day gifts you can get your dear ol’ dad is the gift of laughter, relaxation, peace, and time.
You’re probably thinking, what does that even mean? Well, let Harrington & Company tell you.
Let’s be honest. Your dad probably doesn’t need another tool kit, beard shaving kit, or camping supplies, or nail gun this year now does he?
Why not think outside of the box this year. Be creative with your gift giving this Father’s Day. Do something that will not only put a smile on your old man’s face, but that will also shock him and maybe even make him slightly uncomfortable…
Here are a few Harrington-Approved, funny Father’s Day gift ideas to consider for your old man this year.
Pamper Your Old Man
Bare with us here.
Typically, dads work a lot and hard to provide for the family, right? So most likely, your dad is simply exhausted with work and with life and just needs a break.
Now normally he does this by kicking his feet up, turning on his favorite show, and crackin’ open a cold one. So let’s put a little spin on this, shall we…
That’s right, “pampering” is exactly what it sounds like. We’re telling you to take your dad out to get a pedicure, a massage, or even a facial.
While this is quite comical to do and will be one of the funniest things you could ever see your old man do, it’s also one of the best gifts you can give your dad. Trust us! He’ll actually like it!
Just imagine your dad sitting in a salon chair getting his toenails done!
Men are extremely embarrassed to get things done like pedicures or facials. And if they do get them done, they have to be quiet about it, because their buddies will crack jokes about it for the rest of his life.
But let’s be honest– if you took your dad to get a pedicure or something of the like, he’s going to love every dang minute of it. He’s going to pretend he doesn’t, he’s going to put on a tough face, he’s going to complain, laugh of embarrassment, and maybe even call you names.
But don’t let him fool you. Deep down he loves it. You know it, and he knows it.
Everyone needs to pamper themselves every once in a while, even dads and men alike. So force him out of his comfort zone, embarrass him, but know that the whole time, he also low-key loves it…
Now consider that an activity like this may not be easy to get your dad to.. willingly anyways. Therefore, you may need to think of a way to get him there.
Tell your dad you have a surprise, but that you have to take him there, it’s not something you can physically give him. That’s right– take him hostage and head to the salon. He’ll have no other choice muahaha!
Namaste This is Funny
Are you picking up what we’re putting down?
That’s right, another funny and yet insanely relaxing gift activity you can give your dad this Father’s Day.
Take him to a yoga class. Preferably hot yoga, because, let’s be honest, that would be even more hilarious.
There is nothing funnier than watching your old man indulge in activities that he’s not necessarily used to.
And yet, he will love every minute of it. He will love the challenge as well as the relaxation. It’s an all around win-win for your pops.
Though again, he will never admit that he did, in fact, love every minute of it, but just trust that he did. Everyone loves yoga, and your dad will too.
Give Him a Life Experience
What’s even funnier than yoga and pedicures?
Making your dad do something he’s never done or doesn’t really want to do.
The fact is, middle-aged people sometimes have regrets. Not necessarily regrets for things they had done or wish to take back, but more often than not, they are regrets for things they never did.
At this point in your dad’s life, he’s likely given up on trying new things. He’ll say he’s “too old for that crap” or “missed his chance”.
Don’t believe that for a second!
What is the one life experience that your dad has probably never had the opportunity to do? Maybe that’s skydiving, white-water rafting, rock climbing, scuba diving, swimming with sharks, riding in a helicopter, zip lining, going on a cruise, or even visiting a place he’s never been before.
Get the wheels spinning in your brain and come up with an awesome idea for an experience with your dad.
If you don’t know, ask your mom. If that doesn’t work, subtly trick him into telling you, get him to vocalize some ideas without him even knowing! Find that one thing your dad has never done, and make him do it!
Don’t forget the video ad.
How hilarious would it be to see your dad skydive, or swim with sharks and potentially pee his pants?
You won’t regret this, and trust us- neither will he.
Large spontaneous gestures like these are better than any material item or tool kit you could ever buy him. Get your dad a life experience and forever memory this Father’s Day.
