Unique Gift Ideas for Hokie Dads
Hi Hokie Friends,
It’s Dottie! Very soon it will be a holiday dedicated to dad’s everywhere… Father’s Day! I love Father’s Day because it is a time to show some appreciation for good ol’ Papa Bird. Although your dad probably isn’t the Hokie Bird like mine, he is just as delightful. Here are three unique gifts to give dad, without a tie in sight!
- A Hokie Bird
With Virginia Tech pride running deep in all our Hokie dads, what’s better than giving him a member of the flock? My brother X, the Executive Hokie bird would make a great addition to dad’s desk! However, if your dad is an avid golfer, he might enjoy having my brother GG, the Fore the Hokies bird as a permanent member of his man cave.
- A Day on the Golf Course
If your father is a big-time golfer like mine, you can gift your dad with a day on the golf course. There are several courses in Blacksburg that are up to par. My personal favorite is the Virginia Tech Golf course, located at 1085 Duck Pond Drive. You can find information on purchasing a day pass here: https://www.recsports.vt.edu/getactive/golf.html.
- Dinner out of the House
With Blacksburg Restaurant week just around the corner, you can promise dad a dinner date starting June 25. Now is the perfect time to treat your dad to a gift card that he can use for the great deals that are coming up. For more information on this fabulous week of good food and great deals, you can check out this link: http://downtownblacksburg.com/restaurant-week-blacksburg.aspx.
The most important thing to remember this Father’s Day is that the most important gift you can give can’t be wrapped. Make sure to carve some time out of your day to spend with dad! The memories you make together will last a life time.
I hope these suggestions ease the stress of shopping this Father’s Day. What are you doing for dad this year? Comment below!
Until next time Hokies,
