Gift Giving For The Dad Who’s Still a Kid at Heart

Being a dad can be a tough job. Show the dads in your life that it's OK to be a kid at heart by gifting them items that remind them of childhood. And don't forget to get the kids involved.

Nostalgic Gifts
When dad was a kid, he probably had a favorite book. Perhaps, it was one his father used to read him or that his grandparents gave him as a gift. There are many resources available to track down these classics. To add an element of surprise and fun for the kiddos, secretly ask his family members about his favorites which included fun activities like, a book of constellations or choose-your-own adventures.
Board games are another way to remind dad of his time as a child. Bring home one he played with his family and encourage a family board game night.

Backyard Playground
Maybe dad has grown too old for swings and slides, but he will still enjoy outdoor games to entertain guests during barbecues or other get togethers. Look for pre-packaged games like horseshoes, cornhole or ladder ball and encourage him to hold tournaments with his friends.

Trips to the Ballpark
Is there a better way for dads and children to bond than enjoying a sporting event together? The sportsmanship, delicious food and incredible atmosphere are enough to excite anyone. Gift him tickets to his favorite team and make sure to provide enough for the whole family.
