Maybe he was the man who took you to your first basketball game or ballet practice. Maybe he was the one who grounded you for staying out too late or scolded you for that grade you got on your finance exam. Maybe he was the guy who gave you the advice you needed and taught you lessons that continuously impact you every day of your life. Father’s Day can be a wonderful opportunity to express gratitude to your old man and/or the father of your kids; instead of getting him the same old Hallmark card, here are some creative gift ideas that will say, “thank you,” loud and clear.

If He Enjoys Family Time…
Sometimes, the best gift you could give is your time. Take him for an afternoon picnic at the park or watch an evening movie with him. You don’t have to blast your wallet to give him the perfect present; some quality time could be the bowtie on top of a Father’s Day well spent.
