15 Father's Day Gifts For The Dad Who Likes To Read Or Write
Is it just me... or are dads incredibly hard to shop for? Every year, no matter the occasion, I struggle to find the right gift for my own father, who hates gadgets, could care less about fishing, and never wears a tie unless he's in court. The one thing I know he does like is books, which is why this year, I'm picking him out one of these Father's Day gifts for the dad who likes to read.
Every June, stores and brands always advertise the same kinds of Father's Day gifts: grills and BBQ accessories, camping equipment and fishing poles, tech gadgets and tools, and, of course, socks and ties. But what if your dad is different, and instead of spending the day in the woods or in front of the BBQ, he prefers a relaxing morning with a good book, or a quiet afternoon with a notebook and a pen? If your father is as bookish as you, he deserves a gift that celebrates his love of literature, not get stuck with another belt he doesn't need.
From cool reading accessories to the hottest new book releases, here are 15 Father's Day gifts for the dad who likes to read and write.
