Tuesday, 26 Oct 2010 11:58 AM

Are you planning to buy a Christmas gift for Dad? Are you on the lookout for unique Christmas gift ideas?  If so, read on! It is usually harder to decide on Christmas gifts for parents than it is for friends. This is because it is practically impossible to put all your love, affection, and gratitude into a box. So, what will it be this year? Great Christmas gifts for Dad usually include the traditional, tried and tested, practical stuff including gadgets, equipment, and do-it-yourself kits.
Here are five of the best ideas for Christmas gifts for your Dad. These unique gift ideas will ensure a great Christmas.
  1. Food Gift Certificates: You can’t go wrong with food because you know his likes and dislikes. Promise to cook his favorite meal once a month for the next twelve months (depending on how close you live) or make him a giant gift basket, which contains his favorite home-made cookies. You could also give him gift certificates to his favorite restaurants, which he can visit throughout the year. This could be one of the best Christmas gifts your dad has ever received.
  2. Plants: Plants have an amazing way of uplifting a person’s spirit. You can buy him a few pots of plants that he likes. If he already has a fully fledged garden, then you can promise to come and help him with the gardening at least once a month, which also ensures that he spends time with you. This will be one of the best personalized Christmas gifts ever.
  3. Vacations: One of the best Christmas gifts is a vacation to the place of his choice (keeping in mind your budget) during which you can accompany him. There could be some serious father-child bonding that will show him that you care.
  4. Spa Vouchers: Whoever said that men don’t enjoy pampering wasn’t thinking! A gift certificate for a massage makes a great Christmas gift for dad.
  5. A New Hobby:  Explore your common interests by giving him your time. For example, you could learn how to play the guitar, go golfing, or teach him online gaming. Can’t find a hobby that the two of you could share? Then buy him tickets to his favorite sporting event or to a concert that he would like, and promise to accompany him.
Great Christmas gifts for dad aren’t necessarily expensive. Your time and effort will count for much more than you could ever imagine. So, go ahead, and spend a merry Christmas with your father!
