Finding great Christmas gifts for the father who has everything is tough, for obvious reasons. Most fathers who have everything still want something new, but what that is exactly is left up to the imagination, careful observation and creativity in most cases. Many people think that someone who is financially successful and has everything he could ever want would need something incredibly expensive to satiate their tastes. While this may be true in some respects, successful and generally happy people still want the same things everybody else wants! So before you go out and try to figure out how to buy a yacht that also drives, check out some ideas for great Christmas gifts for the Father who has everything, listed below.
What happens when technology meets the boring old picture frame? Everything changes. Picture frames can now be purchased that are plugged into the wall and can have digital pictures from all the best family vacations uploaded onto them and set to a timer, so that pictures of the family can be sifted through every few seconds, giving the Dad who has everything memories of what he has worked so hard to get. A perfect family, hopefully, seen from a number of different angles, at a number of different times, in a number of different places. This Christmas gift is perfect for his office at home or at work, so his family will always be present in some way.
Scout out the newest, best restaurant in town and get your Dad a dinner there on your nickel, so that he can't beat you to the punch. This all depends on what size of area your parents live and if your Dad is a real foodie or not. Regardless of the latter, the best new place in town my take some research but once you find it, put down a credit card to hold the reservation and then ask your Dad when it works best for you to take him out for a lavish new meal over the holiday season.
Even Dads who have everything can't have seen everything and every day, new experience and performance is something new, fresh and exciting to them. So plan ahead and look into what concerts are rolling through the area where your Dad lives and buy him the best tickets you can, so you and he can attend the show together and have an experience that even he hasn't had quite yet. Try to take him to a concert that is more of an event than anything else, like The Rolling Stones or some rock God from his youth touring again, allowing him to drift back to his glory days.
If your Dad who has everything lives in a place where few members of the family live and he rarely gets to see all of you, get everyone together to surprise him over the Christmas holiday. Keep it a secret though and fly everyone in, having them meet at a restaurant where your Dad will show up just before Christmas. Then he will finally be a Dad who has everything for this Christmas.
