Making our First Hero Feel like One!
George Herbert rightly puts it – One father is more than a hundred schoolmasters.
Indeed. A father, our invisible support system quietly works in the background to extend all possible comfort and support we need to live a life that others envy. The struggle that our fathers go through is often masqueraded by his joyful smile or the occasional stern behaviour to help us rectify our mistakes.
Not often do you get a chance to ‘thank’ him for all that he does for us. We let the days pass thinking we would thank him later. But then with Father’s Day just being round the corner, why delay your chance to reciprocate al the love he showers you with? A gift, no matter how small it may be, will make him feel special. We have narrowed down on 10 of the most wonderful gifts you can opt for. Read on to find out more.

1. Beard Love
For those who have had their father’s sporting a beard, we are sure you would remember the childhood memories of getting tickled by your fathers stubble as he would rub it on your face to make you laugh. Time to let him pamper his beard / stubble now. Check his preference. If he loves a wet shave, gift him a complete wet shaving set and if he prefers trimming them without using the shaving foam and blade, gift him an electronic trimmer.

3. Book bug
The hustle and bustle of daily life must have made your father leave so many of his hobbies and passions. Do you often see your father devour on the newspaper every weekend?

Coax your father into visiting a book store and picking up the book that he would fancy reading. The best option here is to gift him a voucher from Crossroads.

4. For a Relaxed Look
A handloom cotton kurta is a must for any man’s wardrobe. Wouldn’t it be a sight to see your dad sporting one ethnic kurta of your choice during a casual weekend walk/dinner? If you go through your father’s wardrobe, you will realize most of his clothes are occasion driven – festive wear, work wear, party wear etc. Only some men like indulging in clothes that aren’t meant for any specific occasion. Buy him a chic kurta he would cherish.

5. A Dinner Date!
So have you always been accompanying your mom and dad for the weekend dinners? Give them a break guys! Let them enjoy a cozy dinner together this Father’s Day. Gift your father a gift voucher that would let him choose a restaurant of his choice and enjoy some special moments with your mom. And as your parents’ enjoy their dinner date, you can perhaps sit and get some popcorn and watch a movie indoors with your sibling.
6. Go for the Glares
Have you seen your dad wearing the same pair of sunglasses for ages now? It is time for you to let him try something new. Lack of time and again lack of an inclination to buy makes our fathers carry on with things that they have instead of opting for something new. It is only when we push them, will they go shopping, isn’t it? Gift him a pair of sunglasses and see him happily accept it. Don’t worry about getting a wrong one. At least this would make him go to the store / portal and look out for what he likes the best. So here you aren’t just giving him a new pair of sunglasses but also giving him a chance to take a break and indulge in some shopping! Smart, isn’t it?

Let your dad proudly sip his coffee at work from a mug that would let the world know how much his child loves him! You can opt for either personalizing the mug with a message you want to convey to your dad or pick up some readymade ones with ‘My Daddy Greatest’ kind of messages. Either way, he is going to cherish this gift of yours.

8. Flowers, chocolates or wine cases
For the father who has it all, a bouquet of fresh flowers could actually be a good idea. It might sound a little girly to you, but trust us when we say this, flowers have this magical quality of lifting a person’s mood and making him feel special. A personalized note is a must with this one. However, if you prefer something more manly, a pesonalised wine case could be a good choice.

9. Travel buddy
If your father is someone who loves to travel, explore new places and live new expereinces, gift him a holiday with his dream adventure. If age and health permits, skydiving in Dubai is a great idea. Or maybe snorkelling in Maldives, and if you want to keep it simple, go for a simple sailing trip or a swim with the dolphin expereince at Thailand or Bali. If you want to keep it safe, get him personalised luggage tags.

10. Tracking the Moments
A wrist watch is an evergreen gift for anyone and if it is for your father, the watch becomes more than just a time teller. Gift a note with it letting him know of the innumerable happy moments you have spent under his love and affection. Let him know that each time he looks at the watch to check the time, it should remind him that his son/daughter is thinking of him and thanking him for all that he has done. A perfect gift for your father, isn’t it?
