Choosing gifts for fathers is a lot more challenging than for boyfriends. Honestly, how often will dads tell his kids what they want to have?
Just because dads don’t speak their mind doesn’t mean we don’t have to think of Father’s day gifts. What we want to see is the joy of happiness on dads’ face, just like the happiness moms get on Mother’s day.
When it comes to picking dads’ gifts, practicality is key. We naturally think of clothing and shoes as being most practical ones. However, we hardly realize they actually need a decent men’s bag to put their belongings.
Come to think about what sort of things dads often bring along – from essential items like keys, a wallet and mobile phone to tech gadgets like ipad, SLR camera and laptop, to go with a few personal items like reading glasses and books and an umbrella. These are just a handful. You probably see how indispensible a smart handbag or backpack will be for dads’ everyday use.
