Showing our love and appreciation can be done in so many creative ways. Here are a few suggestions:

  • A special lunch or dinner out as your treat
  • An audiobook of your dad’s favorite author or genre
  • A gift voucher to Amazon or iTunes
  • A crafted leather item like a leather belt, coin wallet, or key pouch
  • Special water bottle for walks, complete with sunhat and sunscreen
  • A novelty gift for the garden or packet of bulbs
  • A tactile box or mini-chest to store keys and wallet for easy reach
  • A talking clock or watch. You may want to read VisionAware's guides on clocks and watches to help you choose just the right one.
  • Solar lights for a garden path
  • Decorative lamp to brighten up a dark corner of the house

The Gift of Time

Your dad can still enjoy ball games and sports of all kinds. Take him to a game but be sure to bring a portable radio to tune in to hear the announcer give a blow by blow description of the plays! Or how about a fishing expedition or bowling. And be sure to read Gil Johnson's post on A Father's Day Gift to Your Children-Quality Time in the Woodshop and read his woodworking guide.
