Father's Day: Get Something Your Dad Actually Wants

Posted: Updated:

Father's Day is Sunday, June 20th, and probably just like last year (and the year before) you're struggling to think of the perfect gift for Dear Old Dad. Men, especially fathers, can be pretty hard to shop for, and by now your pop probably has enough bowling balls, fishing rods, ties and coffee mugs than he knows what to do with. So how about getting him something really unique and personal for a change?

This Father's Day, add a little spice to your dad's wardrobe with custom dress shirts. This can be done at ShirtsMyWay.com, a custom shirt site where you can pick fabrics, buttons, buttonhole colors, collars, cuffs, and lots of other details with the help of an interactive design program. You can design something completely outrageous with five colors on it or something more classic with just one fabric, depending on your dad's taste. You can also add a cute 'DAD' monogram to ensure your father thinks of you every time he wears your present.

But before you start worrying about the hassle of getting the proper size for your dad, just sneak into his closet and find an old shirt of his that fits him well, take a few measurements and submit them to ShirtsMyWay.com. This way you can be sure he'll be getting a shirt that not only you've designed for him but also fits him well.

Or if you're not sure what your dad would like, you can keep it simple with a Gift Card and let your dad experience the fun of freedom of made-to-order clothes shopping, especially if he's made do with off the rack shirts his whole life.

ShirtsMyWay's custom dress shirts start at $75, and there is free shipping. Design Your Dad's Shirts Here.
