Father’s Day is tomorrow. For many of us who, for some reasons, could have forgotten that the day is celebrated yearly, this is a timely reminder. You need to celebrate your father or the father figure in your life.

Presenting gifts to your father may happen at the last minute, it should not be an excuse for not giving anything at all. Think outside the box this year, do something new and unexpected for him.

Here are a few options to consider to be well guided in taking decision on how to get for your father the most thoughtful gifts this year.

Spa visit
Living in Nigeria can be very stressful. Most men would never think of relaxation, so why not pamper your father with a free massage and facial at a good spa tomorrow? It is guaranteed to help him relax and feel good afterwards. Make his day better.

A framed portrait
What’s more unique than a classy portrait of him from an excellent artist? Usually, a photograph would suffice when making this, either as a painted art or pencil work. Bonus if the picture includes you and/your siblings.

A night out
Some just want to relax with cool music; from open mic nights to jazz performances, your options are endless if both of you live in an urban area.

There are many unique and timeless timepieces and pieces of jewelry you can give to that man. Get him something that looks good and is highly functional as well.

Customised football jersey
This is an excellent choice for the football fan at heart, who doesn’t own one yet. It’s practical and something that can be used for years. You can even get matching father-child or husband-wife ones. It is a perfect way to solidify the bond.

Men are always admiring one device or gadget or the other; it could be something simple like a smartphone or more expensive like a play station. To make it easier for older dads to be able to virtually see you more often, consider giving them a video-calling device and taking care of the setup ahead of time. These devices do need to be set up to connect to a WiFi network. If possible, you could ask someone in the household to help get it set up.

Gift cards for favourite services
You could give them a card for a popular restaurant currently delivering meals or to an online store, cleaning services and so on. To make it even easier for the dads, you could let them know that you’ll be giving them their next grocery deliveries and place the order for them.

Customised Gift Basket
A gift basket filled with some of their favourite items is a wonderful way to show how much you care. Everyone would love a basket filled with favorite snacks, beverages, good perfumes/colognes or everyday basics used at home.

Create a special photo album, calendar, blanket, or puzzle
With a customised photo album, you can showcase special photos or events so your dad can reminisce anytime. Make a custom photo calendar to help your older dads keep track of days, months, and appointments while seeing smiling family faces. A custom photo blanket will keep your older adult warm and cozy with familiar faces all around. A custom photo puzzle uses a family photo or picture with special meaning to create a fun puzzle your older adult can put together again and again.

Other thoughtful gifts
A few novels or audiobooks by his favourite author or about a favorite topic of his.

History-themed gifts: books, documentaries or movies
Music, experiences, travel, a weekend off and so on.

Cash gifts are always welcome
The gift of your time. Take time out of your day to fete your dad, take him out and treat him very well.
