Having grown up as typical Africans, Our dads are so different, what will make my dad happy is not what will make yours happy. Most of our dads are too traditional that we even wonder if they will truly appreciate the gift we buy. We understand that dads have been brought up tough and we shun from anything that might show their sentimental side, including the three letter sentence! So, we let the actions speak louder than the words.
While taking our dads out for lunch and patting them in the back without saying I love you or thank you (especially for men) is a kind gesture, It is always good to buy something tangible and functional. A gift he will carry proudly and say “You know, I got this one from my son, he is all grown up and independent now.” If you want your dad to walk proudly feeling loved and appreciated, Kaymu.co.ke has a list of gift ideas that will do just that.
We live in a world where image is everything, you want people to think of your dad highly by adorning a watch on his wrist. It doesn’t need to be encrusted with diamonds it just needs to come straight from the heart. It’s the thought that counts anyway.
Beat the monotony of always buying shirts and get a T-shirt. T-shirts scream relaxation and there is nothing better than the feeling of seeing your dad chilling and unwinding in a Tee you got him. A simple Tee with simple graphic or fun writing would go a long way.
You love your dad so much that you wouldn’t want to see him get a cold. And there is nothing like warmth from a hug by a dad wearing a sweater with good fabric and a fine hand. Get a good quality sweater that can retain heat and last for eternity.
Step up his footwear by getting him a good masculine shoe that oozes elegance and sophistication. A Solid reasonable shoe that will command respect without having to say a word. Who wouldn’t want their dad to be respected?
If your old man winds down his day with a beer, get him a mug that will make him anticipate sipping his drink. It can be engraved his name or your mother’s name, that will make him smile.
