Dad Hard To Shop For: Ideas For The Best Christmas GiftsBy Debra Wilson on November 3, 2011, 9:32 pm
Is figuring out what to buy your father for Christmas giving you a headache? If your father is anything like mine, he already owns the best of everything and buying him a Christmas gift that is thoughtful and personal proves to be incredibly difficult. Over the years I have learned a few tips that have helped me give Dad a gift from the heart. With Black Friday coming soon here is a few ideas!
Apple’s famous tablet is the only good tablet computer out their with its own dedicated apps and services. The iPad sports a great screen and powerful processor. Rumor out there is Apple is going to release a new iPad 3 Soon, so you might be able to snatch up a iPad 2 cheap.
In complete desperation on Christmas Eve, gift cards will be well-received, as well as movie tickets. As a last resort, many gas stations carry convenience items which you can pick up on the way to the house. Anything that he might use that he doesn’t have to pay for will be welcome
Sports team clothing is a good choice, available in most stores. Stuff from NFL teams that are out of the playoff hunt is sold at a discount by Christmas Eve. Sweatshirts, sweaters and gloves are good choices for a man who lives where it gets cold in the winter. For guys, it doesn’t pay to don’t buy summer gear now, since he will probably forget about it when the warm weather arrives. If he is a sports fan, simple gifts like golf balls or tennis balls are cheap and available at the last minute.
If the man on your list likes TV but still hasn’t gotten wise to TiVo, here’s an idea he’ll appreciate. This digital video recorder takes the hassle out of home recording, even allowing you to pause and rewind live TV.
The Phone is the hottest tech item out on the market. Apple has created a get network of app that can’t be match with any other phone. Plus, it sports the voice interactive App Siri. Apple even allows you to jailbreak iPhone 4S device to give it a wide range of new features.
A watch is always a good Christmas gift idea for a man, and this site has the majority of the major brands and types you might be looking for.
Music, all fathers have a favorite type of music. My father has every electronic gadget know to man when it comes to playing and recording music. Burn him a CD with the top ten songs on the charts when he was a senior in high school and add a gift card so that he can download more of his favorite music.
