Father's-DayThere exist those delightful lads known as fathers that need our attention at least once a year on their birthday. The inevitable question regarding what to give will be in our thought process before this annual occurrence comes to fruition. So what's a strategy to make this job easier? Birthday Gift Baskets for Dads is the correct answer, my friends!

How so, you ask? Well, with this option there is a wide variety of themes to choose from that would be within the broad realm of Guy-dom which includes those under the subcategory of "Dads". So, after the realization and acceptance those Dads are, indeed, guys we can then deduce that such Dads would enjoy gifts generally deemed favorable to guys. Agreed? Let's move on.

The first question naturally is....What do guys like? The next question is....Are there Birthday Gift Baskets for Dads that I could send that could cover these bases? We can answer both with the declaration that there are gift baskets that cover themes that guys love such as golf, NASCAR, handyman, casino action, cigars, movies and other favorite pastimes as well. Let's now look a bit further.

Does dear 'ol Dad have an appetite for gourmet food or the world's finest chocolates? Would he beam with mouth-watering anticipation after presented with Italian Food? How about top-shelf coffee or tea delicacies? Would a "push the envelope" spicy theme be appropriate or, conversely, a heart-healthy or sugar free one? The good news is that there are Birthday Gift Baskets for Dads having these themes as well.

Would Dad enjoy (or deserve) a dash of good natured ribbing after another year of gracing this world with his existence? There is an "Over the Hill Birthday Basket" that would keep the juices of sharp wit flowing amongst the down-to-earth type family. Nothing wrong with a little jest now and then to keep everything in perspective, eh?

When it comes to choosing the perfect gifts for dad, there seems to be a limit on the variety of gifts to choose from. Of course, there are typical gifts for dads like neckties, watches and gift cards, but you are probably searching for that all so unique gift idea. Gift baskets, though traditionally not considered as that perfect gift for Dad, are actually an increasingly common gift.

Brainstorm for a Perfect Unique Gift Basket

I'm sure you are familiar with the saying, "It's the thought that counts." Often, it's used as consolation for someone who didn't choose quite the right gift. If you put just a little thought into the present before you buy it, however, you can avoid the dreaded statement altogether.

Take a piece of paper and write down every detail you can think of in a minute about your father. Use these questions as a guide:

  • What's his job?
  • What are his hobbies?
  • His likes and dislikes?
  • What bothers him?
  • What does he complain about?
  • How does he relax?
  • What are his favorite foods and beverages?

Once you have these items down, certain themes will start to jump out at you.

Choosing the Right Gift

Here's where it gets interesting. Gift baskets for men come in all different themes including sports (golf, football, baseball, etc.), fishing, games, and tools. General baskets also have specific gourmet themes including coffee, tea, chocolate, and cheese - so those are always an option as well.

Now what it comes down to is finding a basket that fits your budget as well as your father. Places like Amazon have thousands and thousands of unique gift baskets from hundreds of different merchants. Start your shopping early and you should be all set for a Father's Day present that will truly give pleasure to Dad.

Here's a look at several gift baskets for men that your Dad will absolutely love.

Sweet Tooth Gift Baskets

Retro Candy

Does dad enjoy sweets and candy? Does he have that all so famous never ending sweet tooth? Well you can take him for a nostalgic trip down memory lane with a retro candy gift basket. There are baskets filled with candy from the 1940's, 1950's, 1960's, 1970's and 1980's dads. Penny and nickel candies, sugar babies and rock candy are just a few of the goodies that are in them.

Godiva Chocolate

While I am on the subject of that good ole 'sweet tooth' another good idea comes to mind. If Dad is a chocolate lover then there is nothing in the world that he would love more than a Godiva chocolate gift basket in Canada. Godiva is one of those chocolate indulgences that you simply cannot refuse. On Christmas as Dad is smiling while eating his milk chocolate bar, you will know for sure that this gift idea was perfect.

Ice Cream 'Goodies

Guess what, I am not done with the sweet stuff. How does an ice cream gift basket sound? Well you are probably saying to yourself that the two can't possibly go hand in hand. You are absolutely correct, that is of course unless you don't mind having a dripping sweet mess. Breathe easy; Dad won't have a messy Christmas gift. I don't mean the actual ice cream in the gift basket. This basket for Dad is filled with all the fun toppings, sauces and condiments for that ultimate ice cream experience. Dad's next bowl of ice cream will taste ten times greater with these goodies.

King of the Grill

Is Dad the King of the Grill? Does he eat sleep and drink BBQ? Is he glued to the television set for all of the cooking shows that are about grilling? If so, then the perfect gift basket for him is going to be one filled with all sorts of grilling goodies like marinades, rubs, sauces, skewers, spices and grilling planks. One thing for sure is that by getting Dad a basket filled with grilling goodies is you will get you a good meal out the deal (hopefully).

Golf Goodies

If Dad is a golf lover and enjoys playing every waking moment that he has then, this would be ideal for him. It is a great way to give him a bunch of golf related items in one basket. Most, if not all of these baskets come with some type of gourmet golf snacks, a few golf balls, and other keepsake items.

My Car My World

What man is not infatuated with his car? For that car enthusiast that enjoys spending their spare moments shining those four wheels, consider a car wash themed gift basket. Dad will have everything he needs to make his car shine.

Gift baskets in Canada are always a big hit. Dad will have lots of goodies all in one nice packed bundle. You can't go wrong with this gift idea.
