Value City New Jersey’s Guide To Gifts For Dads And Grads!
It’s that time of year again! When our kids, grandkids, nieces and nephews are graduating from high school and college and we observe Fathers Day to celebrate the dads in our lives. There’s pomp and circumstance, there are caps and gowns, and there are barbeques and cakes to celebrate our dads and grads. And, of course, there are gifts! But, with all of the choices out there, it’s hard to choose something that truly honors them. Here are some ideas to help you give them gifts they’ll remember and love.
Gifts For Dad
What Fathers Day gift do you get for the guy who has (and probably knows) everything? An experience he won’t forget. Book him for one of those racecar excursions or take him deep sea fishing. You can also get him something that sets the stage for experiential gifts, like revamping his man-cave or home theater with this Signature Design Paramount DuraBlend® Home Theater Group by Ashley. It has all of the best features of a movie theater, with all of the bells and whistles. This sets the stage for movie night with dad, with sodas, popcorn and everything!
Another gift that sets the stage for an experience is a new fire pit. I know what you’re thinking, “A fire pit”? Yes and here’s why! A fire pit draws people together, so it’s setting the stage for outdoor barbeques, parties, or just catching up with dad out on the patio. This Burnella Outdoor Round Fire Pit Table by Signature Design by Ashley is perfect for sitting and chatting with your family.
Gifts For Grads
Give Them Help On Their Next Adventure
This may seem like you’re taking the easy way out, but you really aren’t. Graduates can always use gift certificates. Especially if they’re rising first year students in college, there’s so much one needs for dorms alone, not to mention books, paper, pencils, pens, printer cartridges and so much more.
Another gift to consider is, believe it or not, dorm furniture. Some dorms come with a standard desk and wardrobe, but some only have the bare essentials, like a bed and a restroom. Your grad is going to need a desk, maybe shelves and both a chair to relax in and a computer chair. When you’re buying for grads, think lighter weight and portable, because they’re going to have to disassemble and reassemble every semester. This Contemporary Computer Desk by Coaster is light weight ands compact, with optional wheels. It’s the perfect combination of functional and portable.
Also, getting accessories for your grad’s new dorm can really help to make the place feel like home. Accessories like these Signature Design Waman Charcoal Pillows by Ashley can really go a long way towards making a drab dorm feel homier. If your special grad is graduating from college, you may want to consider setting them up with some starter furniture for graduate housing or their first apartment!
If You Don’t Know What Your Dad Or Grad Wants, Don’t Be Afraid To Ask
If you’re unsure what your dad or grad wants on their special day, just ask! If you want to surprise them, ask a relative, spouse, or the other person in your life that knows the answer to just about everything…that’s right, you should ask Mom. Encourage them to create a registry at their favorite store or shared cloud document, so everyone can access it and get our honored guests what they really want.
