So here it is, from us to you, our staff picks for Dad this Father’s Day, featuring both personalized and non-personalized gifts.
Non-Personalized Father’s Day Gifts
“I’ve been trying to do event-based things. He has enough stuff at this point in his life where he doesn’t need a lot, so I try to get him experiences instead – concert tickets, Yankee tickets, etc. He’s a sports nut too, so usually Yankee related items are a pretty easy win with him (shirts, books, etc).”
– Dan, Smile Specialist for 13 Years
“I think a good book is a great value. Most of our dads have everything they need, so you have to find something unique.”
– James, Smile Specialist for 11 Years
“My dad always says his phone doesn’t hold a charge. He even went as far as to move the bed to be closer to the wall to charge it. So I got him a 6′ long phone cord and a backup battery pack for his Samsung smartphone. I’m embarrassed to share that he wears the phone battery from a keychain on his waist so that it’s with him at all times.”
– Erica, Smile Specialist for 3 Years
Personalized Father’s Day Gifts
“My Father took a trip to Yellowstone a few years back and I know he’d love a photo book to remember it all. Since he lives far away, I’m also sending him a personalized photo card.”
– Bill, Smile Specialist for 17 Years
“I like to do a photo calendar. My Dad always needs one and he loves seeing my daughter, especially since my parents moved and don’t get to see her every day. Plus I try to fill it with funny photos of her that I know he gets a kick out of.”
– Daniella, Smile Specialist for 1 Year
“I once scanned in a bunch of old photos for my Grandma for a photo book featuring all the photos of her with her 5 kids growing up. My Dad loved it so much and asked for a copy (that was 4 years ago!) So, I’m finally going to get him a copy, but add in more photos of him as a kid.”
– Rachel, Smile Specialist for 8 Years
“I’m surprising my Dad with a photo book from his wedding last year. They didn’t get one made and I know he’s going to love it.”
– Jason, Smile Specialist for 9 Years
“My Dad is a craft beer enthusiast, so I’m gifting him a collection of his favorite brews. He’s also grown into a big softie in his old(er) age, so I’ll be personalizing them with photo beer labels & throwing in some personalized coasters with a sweet message.”
– Abby, Smile Specialist for 1 Year
“My dad loves taking photos and is big on experiences over things. I am going to make him a photo book of all of the best pictures he’s taken for Father’s Day.”
– Marlaina, Smile Specialist for 6 Months
