TOP 10 unique Gifts for Dad

8 Comments

Here is my list of top 10 unique gifts you can give your Outdoorsy Dad this year.

“A father is neither an anchor to hold us back nor a sail to take us there but a guiding light whose love shows us the way.” – Unknown

Why do we call him Dad?

“Dad” was first recorded in English sometime in the 1500s, but its ancestry isn’t clear. The forms “dada”, “pa” and “tata” is more like baby talk.

Father is a male human parent and a much more formal way of addressing one’s male parent. Some men like to be called father and other like to be called dad.

  2. Hi Cornelia,

    Thank you for sharing this article, it really is helpful to me as it is Father’s Day in the UK on Sunday 20th June.

    I will have a good look into your ideas and I will let you know if I eventually end up investing in one or two of them for my Dad. Dad’s are so important in a child’s life. Especially my own Dad, as we are very good friends. Even though I moved away from my home town, we still stay in constant contact along with my Mum of course.

    Thank you for sharing again and keep up the great work.

    All the best,

    Tom

  3. These are some great ideas for father’s day gifts! I like the collection of books you’ve put together. My dad isn’t as outdoorsy these days, but I did get him a book on welding recently, so I think books on hobbies is always a good option. I might even be interested in that one on survival 101! Thanks for sharing 🙂

    1. Hi Dereck, thank you for taking the time to comment. Books can be such a great gift. I am glad you found my collection interesting.

  4. This a very helpful article and with upcoming father’s day I will really come in handy.

    These are nice gifts that can be given to our wonderful dads on any day and on any occasion and definitely these gifts will put smiles on their faces, especially if they are outdoors just like you mentioned.

    Wonderful gift ideas, keep up the good work
