All dads are heroes to their children. They're old, strong, full of wisdom and are almost always up for doing something fun. And as I've grown up, I've realized that my dad wasn't always actually an old man. My earliest memories of him are when he was somewhere around my age now. So, it makes sense that he wanted to go on bike rides, build stuff and listen to music. I do all of those things today too!
I realized that people are never actually OLD, they just get older. My dad still has that adventurous 30-something hero inside who is dying to breathe some fresh air again. I bet your dad does too! You have to give like a H.E.R.O. when it comes to dad if you want to make him feel like the hero he was when you were just a pip-squeak! If he is a new dad, then make sure he stays in touch with his awesomeness this Father's Day.
Here is a collection of fun gifts for dad that will rock his world more than another tie or personalized gift. It's not that he won't appreciate one of those classic gifts, but the folks at Gifts.com headquarters are all in agreement that a fun gift is better than a boring gift any day.
