Father's Day is almost here! We only have a little more than a week to hunt for the perfect gift for Dear Ol' Dad! Sunday, June 16th is the big day, and if you are a last-minute shopper, this post is for you. Dads can be super difficult to shop for. Whether they love everything their kids bring home or already own everything you can think of, these gifts are sure to please.
For the Dad who truly has Everything
1) Quality Time
Quality time is priceless! Take your dad fishing or take him to the driving range to hit a few golf balls. I recently took my dad to the Atlanta Spring Wine Festival in the backyard of my amazing Camden Fourth Ward apartment. We had a blast taste testing and exploring in our own city. If you live in the Buckhead area, near Camden Paces or Camden Buckhead Square, try what my siblings and I did a few years back and spend the day out with dad at one or more of Atlanta’s famous breweries like SweetWater. Also in the Buckhead area, right across the street from Camden Phipps, is the AMC Phipps Plaza 14, a luxury movie theater with recliners and full kitchen and bar. Take your dad to see something he’s been waiting on or one of his favorite actors. Nothing shows how much you appreciate your dad than good quality time.
2) A Project
The best thing about Dads is that they truly just want to be involved and help. Invite your dad in on a project you’re working on and see how quickly that menial task becomes a joyful memory. Just last week while my brother prepared for his soon to arrive baby girl, he and our dad made a day of putting the baby’s crib together. They both found it to be productive, rewarding and, most importantly, very fun.
For the Sentimental Dad:
3) Personalized Photo Calendar (Walgreen’s, Shutterfly, etc.)
This is a big hit with dads! Every year, I make a calendar highlighting all the antics and adventures that the previous year brought for the family. Were you splashing around in the Camden Fair Lakes pool? Or playing giant chess in Camden Thornton Park’s courtyard? These are memories you want to capture and remember! My dad absolutely loves this gift. It’s a smaller, more frequently looked at scrapbook and is great for dad’s fridge, office or man cave. It is only $30 but it makes a special gift for a special dad!
This is a wonderful gift to give your dad if you have the time to spend to create it. For only $35, each page can be customized with your own special photos and sentiments. Did your dad help you move into your top floor apartment at Camden Breakers on a particularly warm day? Does he walk your dog around Camden Doral’s Bark Park when you’re out of town? This gift is the perfect thank you for everything dad does. They also make this book in the version of "Why a Son Needs a Dad" - awww!
For the Life of the Party Dad
5) The Craft Beer Club’s Beer Subscription Box
If your dad loves to relax and drink a beer every now and then, this is the gift for him. Each month dad will get to try new brews that will be delivered right to his door and he can take them straight to his Camden balcony to enjoy a brew with a view (check out the Atlanta skyline from Camden Vantage or Camden Post Oak’s high rise views of Houston). The size of the box can vary and there are a large variety of subscription services from different companies for you to choose from but there is no doubt that a beer subscription box will be the gift that keeps on giving. Fingers crossed he’ll share!
6) Portable Cornhole
Is your dad constantly telling the family “it’s time to get moving!” Mine is too. For the active dad who can’t stand to sit, gift the GoSports Portable Cornhole Game. Everywhere your dad goes, he’ll have a game that everyone can play and cheer on together. Take it along to your local Camden’s playground, like these playgrounds at Camden Peachtree City and Camden Visconti, for a day of endless fun. It’s lightweight and easy to set up so you can go from sleepy to celebratory in minutes.
For the Artistic Dad
If your dad is the artistic or musical type, show him that you couldn’t have “picked” a better dad with this customizable guitar pick. What better way to show him how much you love him than to support his beloved art? You can personalize the pick to say whatever you would like. The finished pick comes in a leather pouch and can be shipped right to dad's door and easily transported to the recording studio. Your dad can even record his own music in The Camden’s Jam Room. Best. Gift. Ever.
Does your dad wield his creative powers in the kitchen? Have him serve a trendy charcuterie board on his gorgeous white quartz countertops at the Camden Grandview Townhomes with this customized cutting board.
Maybe he’s your own personal King of the Grill? A sturdy cutting board is ideal for grilling out at any Camden grill station, like this gorgeous one at Camden Old Town Scottsdale. Either way he will love this wood cutting board. He can chop, serve or display the board in his kitchen and show everyone why cooking is cool.
Happy Father's Day to all the AMAZING Father's out there!
