Father’s Day Gift Ideas Dad Will Love!

June 12, 2014

Still need inspiration for the perfect Father’s Day gift? Don’t panic! We asked Jamie O’Donnell, our event and lifestyle expert, to shop the Mall and put together some top tips and ideas that are guaranteed to make you Dad’s favorite this year.
 
So, where to start for Gifts Dad will love?  Jamie says don’t fret, follow these easy tips for gift-giving and you’ll be Dad’s shining star!
{Jamie O’Gift Tip: Focus on experiences}

Of all the Dads I polled this year, they all had one common thread in their answers – Experiences, Experiences, Experiences!  Whether that be having time with family, golfing, fishing, grilling, working on their car or just downtime in general, they all wanted something to experience…
So does that mean finding the perfect gift for Dad just got even harder?  No, it’s great news - It means that finding the perfect gift just got even easier!

{Jamie O’Gift Tip: The magic key to making a gift meaningful is to tie the gift you pick into a past memory or a future experience. It instantly turns an inanimate object into something much larger and guarantees that Dad will never forget the effort you made or how he felt!}
 
If experiences are what Dads want then ask and you shall receive with these great gift ideas!
