I don't know about you, but I'm pretty darn lucky to have such a cool, supportive dad. This Father's Day, I plan to show him how much I love him by putting together a heartfelt gift. While brainstorming ideas, I came up with a dozen alternatives, spanning a wide range of prices. Planning a gift for the dad that seems to have everything isn't easy, in fact it can be intimidating  even daunting. However, you don't need to spend exorbitant amounts to show your dad you care. For all the procrastinators out there {like myself}, I've comprised a list of awesome ideas dad will love.

1. A gift basket. Do you and your dad share a special memory? For example, did you and your dad golf together when you were a kid? If so, put together a basket of all the necessary items to recreate that special memory.
2. A bottle thermometer to keep his chardonnay to crisp perfection.
3. A barbecue kit for the grill master chef {via Williams-Sonoma}
4. A volleyball or soccer ball for the athletic dad that misses practicing with you. Attach a sweet note promising a day back on the field with him.
5. A business tie for his professional career. Even better: stitch a sweet note or monogram inside for an extra special touch. 
6. A luxury shaving kit; {Art of Shaving via Bloomingdales}
7. Bake him his favorite dessert, because sometimes men are basic. After all, a homemade gift is always appreciated because it requires a lot of thought and attention to detail. 
8. A frame for his office or bedroom. I like the double-sided frames {pictured below} because you can add more than one photo or write a sweet note.
9. A subscription to his favorite magazine.
10. A luxury keychain for his set of keys. 
11. A ticket to his favorite sporting event, concert, or a movie.
12. A homemade card, because you're never too old to make a homemade gift. 

What are you doing for your dad this Father's Day? Share your feedback below!
