Have you seen an increase in ads relating to home improvement, technology or men’s personal care items? You’re not the only one! The increase in promotion of all things manly tells us that Father’s Day is just around the corner! In honor of the occasion, let’s take a look at the most common gifts, then we’ll throw out some alternatives to shower dad with extra appreciation.

On the third Sunday of June, kids celebrate dad with practical gift ideas. Here are some of the typical gift ideas:

  1. A necktie (or another clothing item)
  2. An electronic gadget
  3. A gift certificate

Rather than relying on the same tried-and-true items, how about surprising Dad with something different this year?

  • Tickets

    We’ve said it time and again, but this summer is extra special because many of us get to come together again after being apart for months at a time. Celebrate dad by purchasing tickets to a concert or sporting event. Starting next week, the Milwaukee Brewers will be allowing full capacity at American Family Field.  
  • Project assistance

    If your dad is like many out there, summer is the busiest time of the year. Between yard work and other summer projects, you might notice that he hardly has time to just sit and take in the most beautiful season of the year. Help him get to relaxing faster by offering a hand. We can bet he’ll enjoy the company as well as the assistance.
  • A donation to his favorite cause

    Does Dad have a special cause that he loves to support? Consider helping that organization carry on in its mission by giving a gift in his honor. Remember that donations are the lifeblood of any nonprofit organization. If your dad is a Lions Pride supporter, an honorarium or memorial donations can help us continue preserving, providing and protecting for the Wisconsin Lions Camp and all WLF statewide projects.

Dad’s special day is only three days away, so don’t wait to find the perfect present. From the Lions Pride Board and Staff, we’d like to wish all the dads out there a happy Father’s Day!
