Daughters hold a special place in the hearts of dads and they love any gift from their little girls, no matter how big her budget. Daughters who want to give a truly thoughtful gift for Dad should consider items that might not have considered in the past. Get creative and use your imagination to find a gift for dad that lets him know how much you value his love.
Dad may have bought you your first necklace or earrings and you too can shower him with lovely pieces of men's jewelry. Cuff bracelets, crosses and dog tags are popular men's items that come in a wide range of prices and styles to suit your dad and your budget. Thick rings and necklaces can be personalized with a note from his daughter or with his initials. Red Envelope has wide assortment of men's jewelry dad would love. Hide a special message on the back of one of the vintage, rough-hewn sterling silver tags he can wear on a chain or get him to muster up a tear when he reads the inscription on a circle of life pendant for dads that hangs on a faux-leather cord. Surprise him with a father/daughter necklace inscribed with words in English and Chinese.
If you're operating on a tight budget, consider a gift that dad can take everywhere with him like a digital photo key chain from Red Envelope. The one-and-a half-inch screen on the key chain can hold up to 60 photos, which you can download before you present it to him. Include pictures of just the two of you that you remember as special.
Plan a trip just for the two of you to catch up and have fun together. Take him for a golf weekend at the coast or plan a three-day cruise. Start a tradition that keeps the lines of communication and love open between the two of you with an annual or bi-annual trip to somewhere memorable. Give your dad a picture album with photos of each trip at another gift-giving holiday. Load those pictures on a digital photo key chain one year and put another set in a brushed nickel digital photo frame put out by Red Envelope that is very masculine. Each gift throughout the year can lead up to this trip. Birthday, Christmas, Father's Day -- all can provide times for a trip gift ranging from pictures to travel cases, a compass or new bathrobe.
