Maybe a nice suitcase if he travels alot, a nice family portrait painted... like they did in the 1800s... nice wallet, make a wooden tree and hang up giftcards from different stores, restaurant and decorate the tree with it..

Unfortunately DH's dad died a year before I met him. He says we would have gotten along so well.

I usually get my dad gift cards... its better cuz then he's forced to shop at his favorite stores & buy himself what he needs (home depot or lowes)
Or pics of the kids... he loves showing off his grandbabies!
*he's the only parent I go all out for. He does so much for us. Also, he's the hardest one to buy for cuz he returns everything lol!*

The ones my dad has appreciated the most has been things about the grandkids, one year each child made a wooden frame and we put their picture in it. We also like to buy him things that he wants but refuses to buy for himself. He's so generous to other people but rarely "spoils" himself. It makes me feel really good to do something for the man who chose to be my dad and continues to do so much for his family.
