Out of the Box Father’s Day Gifts

If you’re stuck trying to come up with a new or inventive Father’s Day gift, you’re not alone. It’s not surprising to hear someone say ‘use your imagination’ when it comes to finding the perfect gift. Sure, it would be easy to just purchase a gift card, but there’s very little thought that goes into giving a gift card. Why not go with something new and fun that dad will never expect? Have a special memory or an inside joke that the two of you share? Play on those special moments when searching for your gift.

If you’ve ever spent a special moment with dad, over a bowl of ice cream, why not go the sentimental route? If there was ever a good reason to shop for ice cream, it’s because it makes a great gift for Father’s Day. Not just any ice cream will do, though. Go with the very best, and give dad the gift of Graeter’s Ice Cream. Grater’s is absolutely delicious and is available in a variety of flavors like black raspberry chocolate chip. There are actually quite a few flavors that have chocolate chips in them, which are actually huge chunks of creamy chocolate that melts in your mouth. You haven’t tasted real ice cream until you’ve tried Graeter’s. Graeter’s has a large selection available online, with seasonal flavors, and it can be shipped directly to dad’s door for Father’s Day. Next day shipping is just $29.95.

For dads who enjoy comics and the like, and love surprises, Nerd Block is a fun gift idea. Nerd Block is a subscription box, which offers fun toys, collectibles, apparel, and more for fan dads. Each month has a different theme, and you might wind up with a mixed box of all sorts of different characters, like MARVEL characters, TMNT, DC Comic characters, and more. You never really know what you’ll end up with, which makes this such a fun gift to give. You can select individual gifts a la carte, or subscribe as a one-time purchase, or a monthly subscription. The box will be delivered right to dad’s door- or yours, depending on where you choose to have it shipped. Right now, you can get 10% off any Nerd Block order.

If dad is adventurous and loves to travel and cook, or wants to travel but can’t really afford to, Try the World is a really neat gift idea. It’s another subscription box, but this one give you a taste of different countries around the world. Each month, Try the World focuses on a certain country. You’ll receive a box with information about that country and a list and description of the different foods that are included in the box. The box usually includes 5-6 items that can be used in cooking or enjoyed as snacks. It’s a unique way to explore the different tastes of the world without every having to leave home.

If you just want to go with something useful, yet fun, a sock subscription is the way to make dad smile. Yes- there are a lot of different sock of the month clubs, and sock delivery subscription services. Best way to choose one is to actually browse some of the sock styles on their websites, and choose the service that looks like it’ll best fit your dad’s personal style. Some socks are dressy and dapper, and some are downright silly. Just depends on what kind of guy your dad is.

Subscription boxes are fun to give as gifts, and if you buy an annual subscription for dad, it’ll be the gift that keeps on giving. Who doesn’t love a fun surprise every month?
