Some of the best Father’s Day gifts you can get dear ol’ dad is the gift of laughter, relaxation, and peace.
You’re probably thinking, what does that even mean? Well, let TaskBullet tell you.
Let’s be honest… Your dad probably doesn’t need another tool kit, beard shaving kit, or nail gun this year now does he?
Why not think outside of the box this year. Do something that will not only put a smile on your old man’s face, but that will also shock him and maybe even make him slightly uncomfortable…
Here are a few TaskBullet-approved, funny Father’s Day gift ideas to consider for your old man this year.
Pamper Your Old Man
Bare with us here.
Typically, dads work a lot to provide for the family right? So most likely, your dad is simply exhausted with work and with life and just needs a break.
Now normally he does this by kicking his feet up, turning on his favorite show, and crackin’ open a cold one. So let’s put a little spin on this, shall we…
That’s right, “pampering” is exactly what it sounds like. We’re telling you to take your old man out to get a pedicure, a massage, or even a facial.
While this is quite comical to do and will be one of the funniest things you could ever see your dad do, it’s also one of the best gifts you can give your dad.
Just imagine your dad sitting in a salon chair getting his toenails done!
Men are extremely embarrassed to get things done like pedicures or facials. And if they do get them done, they have to be quiet about it, because their buddies will crack jokes about it for the rest of his life.
But let’s be honest– if you took your dad to get a pedicure or something of the like, he’s going to love every dang minute of it. He’s going to pretend he doesn’t, he’s going to complain, laugh of embarrassment, and maybe even call you names.
But don’t let him fool you. Deep down he loves it. You know it, and he knows it.
Everyone needs to pamper themselves every once in a while, even dads and men alike. So force him out of his comfort zone, embarrass him, but know that the whole time, he also low-key loves it…
Now consider that an activity like this may not be easy to get your dad to.. willingly anyways. Therefore, you may need to think outside of the box.
Tell your dad you have a surprise, but that you have to take him there, it’s not something you can physically give him. That’s right– take him hostage and head to the salon. He’ll have no other choice muahaha!
Namaste This is Funny
Are you picking up what we’re putting down?
That’s right, another funny and yet insanely relaxing gift activity you can give your dad this Father’s Day.
Take him to a yoga class. Preferably hot yoga, because that would be even more hilarious.
There is nothing funnier than watching your old man indulge in hipster activities.
And yet, he will love every minute of it.
Though again, he will never admit that he did, in fact, love every minute of it, but just trust that he did. Everyone loves yoga, and he will too.
Give Him a Life Experience
What’s even funnier than yoga and pedicures?
Making your dad do something he’s never done or doesn’t really want to do.
The fact is, middle-aged people sometimes have regrets. Not necessarily regrets for things they had done or wish to take back, but more often than not, they are regrets for things they never did.
At this point in your dad’s life, he’s likely given up on trying new things. He’ll say he’s “too old for that crap” or “missed his chance”.
Don’t believe that for a second.
What is the one life experience that your dad has probably never had the opportunity to do? Maybe that’s skydiving, white-water rafting, rock climbing, scuba diving, swimming with sharks, mountain biking, riding in a helicopter, zip lining, going on a cruise, or even visiting a place he’s never been before.
Think outside of the box.
If you don’t know, ask your mom. If that doesn’t work, subtly trick him into telling you, get him to vocalize some ideas without him even knowing! Find that one thing your dad has never done, and make him do it!
Make sure you bring the video camera.
How hilarious would it be to see your dad sky dive, or swim with sharks and potentially pee his pants?
You won’t regret this, and trust us- neither will he.
Large spontaneous gestures like these are better than anything material you could ever buy him. Get your dad a life experience and forever memory this Father’s Day.
Hire Someone To Do The Dirty Work
So your padre is working day in and day out, so naturally, he is just exhausted. But maybe he’s spending time on things at work that he doesn’t necessarily need to?
Perhaps he is doing some of the receptionist work because his last secretary quit, or maybe he has taken on the sales side of things because he has no one there to do it for him.
Not to mention, there are still things around the house that need fixing that your mom keeps nagging him about.
The bathroom needs painting, the lawn needs mowing, he hasn’t finished building that shed out back, the toilet keeps running, etc, etc., the list goes on! How can he work, fill in for the receptionist or follow up with leads, AND manage all these household chores?
Why not help your old man out– hire some professionals to take off the load at work and to do the housework for a day so he can have a full day of rest without nagging!
Hire a plumber for that leaking toilet. Call the painter pro’s to finish the bathroom (or do it for him?). Last but not least, call TaskBullet to finally let your dad part ways with doing the receptionist work.
Give your old man the gift of time, and less stress this Father’s Day!
Can’t you imagine it already? To have your dad’s customer service handled 24/7 at all times, with professionalism, never having to touch the secretary duties again? And never actually having to spend the time and money babysitting a new receptionist or worrying about training and turn-over.
Think about that for a second.
How much of your dad’s time is spent per day either handling the customer service himself or babysitting the employee who does? How much time has he likely spent on hiring and training?
Can you imagine never having to do that again?
All you would need to do now is focus on his business. The way it’s supposed to be!
Not only that but with a Virtual Assistant, he now gets to enjoy his Father’s day in peace, like he’s supposed to!
But most of all, have a Happy Father’s Day, from TaskBullet.
