Heartwarming Gift Ideas For Father's Day 2021

Updated: Jun 22, 2021

Mother's day is illustriously celebrated around the world. We can see social media being blasted with posts about moms, and kids rewarding them with flowers, chocolates, cakes, presents, meals, a day of rest, and more. But you don't see the same level of enthusiasm when it comes to father's day; there's barely a post shared about it. Maybe it's because we automatically assume dads wouldn't appreciate the sentiment as much as moms do. But I wonder if they feel left out. If you're a dad yourself, do comment your thoughts about it in the comments below!

When Is Fathers Day?

Father's day is said to be celebrated on the third Sunday of June. No, not the 3rd of June. It's the third Sunday that comes around. And because of this, the date changes every year. Am I alone in feeling that this is kind of nonsensical? It would have been more memorable if it was a fixed date like the 25th of December for Christmas. Honestly, up until this morning I had no idea that the date changes!

Anyway, father's day 2021 is celebrated on the 20th of June.

Heartwarming But Manly Gift Ideas For Father's Day 2021

Now that you know the answer to 'when is fathers day?', it's time for you to prepare for it. Let's crack that tough armor they hone and melt their hearts! Figuratively speaking, of course. Listed below are some great gift ideas for your dad this year.

So bake a tiny lunch box cake just for your dad since lunch box cakes are all the rage these days. However, if you suck at baking, it would be better to purchase one and have it delivered instead. No offense, but baking disasters are the worst!

2. Cookies

Cookies are easier to bake than cakes and the chances of you going wrong is very less because even if the taste isn't exactly what you expected it to be, you could pass it off as a different flavor. This is what I've been doing with my experimental cookies, and I've got no complains so far!

3. Key chain

Father's usually carry a bunch of keys around, be it for the car, the garage, the shed, the safe, and what not. So, isn't a key chain the perfect little gift? You can either purchase one from an online store or make one using resin yourself!

4. Wallet

Let's be real; dads carry the most worn out and filthy looking wallets. They'll continue using the same until it literally falls apart or someone forces a new wallet on them. I'm not sure if they care for the state of their wallets or not, but it would be a very practical gift to give. And dads are the epit
