Father’s Day is this weekend—have you found the perfect gift for Dad yet? Shopping for the man who already has everything (and then some) is definitely difficult. You don’t have to tell us! We go through the same struggle when picking presents for our own fathers. Rather than grabbing another tie or gift card, we’ve come up with some innovative solutions for 2019. If you’re still looking for last-minute gift ideas, try one of ours!
A Manly Meal
Your dad may be in charge of the grill, but does he really want to spend Father’s Day cooking? Surprise him by preparing one of these manly recipes that will satisfy his taste for a home-grilled meal. If you pick something new, he’s less likely to compare your grilling technique to his! At least, we hope so. Don’t forget to make enough for everyone. Whether you go with the burgers, the baby-back ribs, or the barbecue turkey breast, you can easily expand the menu for the whole family. That way, Dad gets a meaty meal and plenty of time with his favorite people this upcoming Father’s Day.
A DIY Day Off
As the resident handyman, it seems like Dad is always doing something. Even on his days off, he’s often working around the house, taking care of small repairs, renovations, and/or landscaping. While he might enjoy DIY, we think he’d also like having one less item on his honey-do list. Particularly if it’s a big one.
Since home exterior updates often require the most time, labor, and expertise, why not get the ball rolling? You don’t have to fund the full siding replacement or roofing repair. But it would be nice to do some research and pool together to start the project. At Schaefer Exteriors, we’d be happy to help! We can provide expert guidance and competitive quoting, so you can decide how much you want to do this Father’s Day.
A Personalized Present
When all else fails, go with a gift that shows how much you know about your dad. What are his favorite things? Is there a way you can make it even easier for him to enjoy them? If you customize a present this Father’s Day, it doesn’t really matter how much you spend on the item. Honestly, you could make it yourself and he’d love it just as much! Check out these crafty examples from HGTV and use what you can. As long as you put the effort into finding the perfect gift for Dad, he won’t be disappointed. Trust us!
If there’s anything we can do to make your Father’s Day a little better, just let us know! At Schaefer Exteriors, we’ve been helping families throughout Maryland, Northern Virginia, Pennsylvania, Eastern West Virginia, and Delaware for over 35 years. We hope you and yours have a wonderful time celebrating this weekend!
