On Father’s Day, what do you get a dad who seems to have everything?

My Dad is a strong, open-minded and friendly guy with a great sense of humor. He never takes himself too seriously and laughs heartily when we crack jokes at his expense! He is a helpful handyman, a dependable motivator and a trustworthy confidante.

Yet, it’s almost impossible to know what to get him when his birthday or Father’s Day comes around.

It’s not that he doesn’t appreciate gifts, but, he just seems so content and happy that you never know if he needs anything. It’s hard to buy gifts for Dad. Of course, he ends up loving whatever I get him so I always feel like I got him the perfect gift. He’s just a positive person who enjoys and appreciates everything his kids do for him. He especially likes it when we send him thoughtful wishes.

Which is why, regardless of what I get him, I always send him free Father’s Day ecards as well. Dad loves reading my personalized note and message. I know he preserves greeting cards and notes from his family for years. And you thought women were the sentimental ones!

If you’re not sure what to get Dad for Father’s Day, or, simply want to add a personal touch to your Father’s Day wishes, why not consider sending free Father’s Day ecards?

Gotfreecards has dozens of them to choose from. Here are a few of my picks.

The Handyman Husband: – The perfect ecard for your husband, who besides being a great Dad to your kids, is a great help around the house. Why not make his Father’s Day special by taking over his handyman duties for a day….at least virtually?!

King of the World…Just for Today: Even kids know who the boss is at home. But, on Father’s Day, Dad gets to rule.

Dad Your Beacon:
If you think of your Dad’s guidance at every step, if you hear his voice at every crucial crossroad and if Dad is your inspiration, no symbol could say it better than this one.

Daddy’s Girl:
Dads and daughters have this mysterious, magical bond that nobody really understands. Whether he’s giving her bike a gentle push or nudging her to go for her dreams…a daughter just knows that with Dad’s support she can do anything.

Thoughtful Gift:
Like me, if you can’t think of anything to get your Dad that he doesn’t already have or doesn’t really need….you can always rely on free Father’s Day ecards to warm his heart.  Ultimately, it is the thought that counts and free ecards help you convey them.

Printable Cards:
Free ecards aren’t the only way you can get your Father’s Day message across to Dad. Browse our section of Printable Cards and find one that fits your Dad’s personality. Choose from traditional designs to humorous themes, color-in pages to Rock Star and sports themes.

How to Choose a Father’s Day Gift

Fathers Day

Fathers Day

Father’s Day is a few weeks away. If you find it difficult to select the right gift for Dad, start by taking a couple of minutes to think about it. Instead of heading to the store or to a shopping site and browsing thousands of gift items, start by making a list. A list of your dad’s interests, what he needs, things he may find useful or interesting or something that might motivate him to pursue a hobby or a healthier lifestyle.

Dads can sometimes be difficult to buy for. If you find yourself in such a situation, Father’s Day is a great time to put some thought into what your father may really appreciate.

Here are a few things to keep in mind when choosing a Father’s Day gift:

Dad’s needs: Observe Dad closely and listen to him. Maybe he needs to upgrade his cell phone or perhaps he could use a new car stereo? Maybe he’d like some help renovating the garage.  As you engage in casual conversation, pay attention to the little details your Dad reveals inadvertently. If you ask him what he wants, he’s probably going to say, “Nothin’!” but if you listen carefully, you’re sure to find something that Dad really needs at the moment.

Dad’s interests: Parents spend most of their lives sacrificing their needs and forgoing activities they enjoy so they can save up to educate their kids or to give their family a better life. Now is the time to encourage Dad to take up his favorite hobby again or to pursue a new one. Whether it’s golf or photography,  give your Dad a head-start by buying him the essential items he will need( a camera, golf clubs) or by signing him up for a class or enrolling him in a club.  Motivate Dad to get actively involved with a favorite sport or activity by getting him a gift he can’t wait to use.

Dad’s Health and Lifestyle: If your dad isn’t too careful with his diet and lifestyle, give him a gift that makes it easier. A health club membership, an exercise bike and cook books with nutritious, low fat recipes are options.  If your dad already leads a healthy lifestyle, reward him with a gift that supports it. He may like a new pair of running shoes or a watch with a compass.

Gifts for Dad’s Work/Travel: The frequent traveler Dad will appreciate gifts that make his trips more comfortable in some way. Consider an organizer for his toiletries or travel documents, or an electronic photo holder to hold his grandchildren’s pictures. Personalized coffee mug and mobile music players make great gifts too.

Anytime Gifts for Dad’s: Some gifts are great for all kinds of Dads and come in handy if you’ve run out of ideas. A tool kit, for example, lasts a long time and lets handy-man Dad finish his in-house projects.  If he hates yard work, consider hiring someone to help him out for a few weeks.  Get him a subscription to an online movie rental service or buy him tickets to a game or show in his town.

When buying Father’s Day gifts, spend more time thinking about your Dad and his tastes and less time shopping – the secret lies in reading his thoughts and buying him the gift he really wants. It doesn’t matter how much money you spend on gifts. All that counts is the expression on Dad’s face when he opens them!  So, before you select a gift, visualize your Dad opening it – and if you see him smiling…it’s probably the perfect choice!
