The dads in my life have one thing in common. They really don’t like to be celebrated. Each would rather stand at the side of the stage and be proud of the person in the center of it. This Father’s Day, however, we can honor dads for all they do, even if they shy away from the spotlight. Skip the crowded greeting card aisle this year and check out these brilliant Father’s Day gifts that will leave him beaming.
1. Silver Swag Box
Especially for older dads, Silver Swag Box delivers a gift box filled with items perfect for celebrating. You can make a one-time purchase, or choose flexible subscription options such as one box delivered every two months, four months, or whatever you choose. Each box has uniquely themed gifts that include activities, something useful, and even snacks. A handwritten note on a greeting card will be included with your box, as well as a special card full of conversation starters for you and your favorite senior. This month, your dad will love the “Take Me Out to The Ball Game” collection featuring a hardcover book by Dale Berra about his father —baseball legend Yogi Berra— as well as baseball themed Mad Libs, a stress ball, Cracker Jacks and more. Silver Swag Boxes will be a hit for all older adults you love and cherish.
Here is a gift that will give back to you. StoryWorth is a subscription service that collects thoughts and anecdotes from a loved one and preserves them in book form. StoryWorth offers a service that emails Dad (or another storyteller) once weekly for a year. This email contains a question about his life, and the answer is then shared with you via email. At the end of one year, these stories are printed in a gorgeous hardcover book. Examples of questions include: Who inspires you? What about being a child do you miss the most? What is one of the most beautiful places you’ve ever been? Family members can send in photos to include in the book in black and white print with a full color cover. At only $99, this awesome one-year subscription includes one hardcover book up to 480 pages. StoryWorth commemorates a lifetime of memories to be shared for generations.
