Find a Gift for Your Type of Dad
Here are some suggestions for the perfect Father's Day gift.
Father's Day is this Sunday. Buying a gift for dad can sometimes be a challenge, but it really depends on what type of dad you have.
Mr. Fix-it Dad
- Rommel's Ace Hardware is a great place to find a gift for this type of dad. From paint to plumbing and everything in between, there has to be something dad needs. Sign him up for an Ace Rewards card and earn points toward rewards cash. Go on the website and join the mailing list and he will receive a coupon for $10 off his next purchase of $50 or more and 10 percent off storewide the first Tuesday of the month.
- Great Moments at The Avenue at White Marsh has just the thing for sports dads. This store is full of baseball, football, basketball, horse racing and even more sports memorabilia. Buy dad an autographed baseball or jersey of his favorite player.
Wine Connoisseur Dad
- Swan Song Spirits has wine from Australia, France, New Zealand and South Africa, not to mention California wines and local wines as well. Find dad's favorite wine or buy him something new to try. Is dad not really into wine? Buy him a case of beer instead.
Car Guy Dad
- Advance Auto Parts has everything a car guy would want. The DIY car dad would love engine parts, batteries, oil and brake hardware. There are also plenty of accessories like cups holders, litter bags and even fuzzy dice.
- The Wireless Zone will help you upgrade dad's cell phone to the latest in mobile devices like the Motorola Droid. Dad will love all of the apps. If dad is already up on the latest technology, why not get him a leather case or car charger?
- Tom's Tropicals is a great place to have dad's prize catch immortalized. Tom's offers taxidermy services for antlers, fish, birds and even big game. Dad won't have to tell fish stories when he can show off the real thing.
No matter what type of dad you have, when it comes to gifts, it's the thought hat counts. And if you're still not sure what to get him, there is always the ultra-versatile gift card.
