If dad loves the sand and the surf and would rather be at the beach than a ball game, then there are some great gifts for the dad who loves that beach that will make him feel at home in the sand. You can turn his passion into unforgettable gift giving.
Go to your local specialty store and you will find a great selection of designer swim trunks. Help your dad to be fashionable while he is tanning or swimming. And a quality sun block product will say that you care about dad's health and well being while it helps him get the golden tan that mom loves so much. If dad is a swimmer, make sure to get the waterproof variety.
And because you want dad to look hot even while his eyes are being protected, there are some great looking sun glasses that will do the job. For this gift you should bring dad along so he can try them on and admire himself in the mirror. Make sure to get a pair that blocks ultra violet radiation.
For your dad to be comfortable while he is working on that killer tan, a nice beach chair makes a great gift. They are durable and inexpensive and you can purchase premium models that have all sorts of accessories from sun shades to drink holders. Some swivel so he can easily follow the sun and some recline and even rock back and forth.
If dad is more sedentary, a tablet reader is a great thing for the beach. He can read an adventure novel while he is enjoying the beach, or just catch up on the latest news and sports. If he likes music you can make him a mixed tape featuring the likes of Jimmy Buffet and the Beach Boys. And for the dad who likes to do his exploring in real time, a metal detector might lead him to discoveries that can add to your college fund. There are a great many choices and all you have to do is to think about dad when you are choosing.
