Gifts for a Dad Who Wants Nothing
Buying a gift for a dad who has everything he needs requires creative thinking. (happy with father image by Marzanna Syncerz from

Shopping for your father's Christmas, birthday or Father's Day present remains difficult at times, particularly when he announces he does not want anything. A dad who makes such statements may feel as though he already has everything he needs in life. As a result, you should look for gifts that offer variety, a unique quality or something that will benefit someone else in need.

Adventure Excursion and Classes

Some companies offer a host of adventurous excursions, many ideal for your dad. True thrill seekers will enjoy an afternoon of skydiving, swimming in a shark cage, driving around a race car track or riding in a helicopter. Other options include instruction in scuba diving, snorkelling or surfing. Sporty individuals will appreciate lessons in such unusual fields as archery, fencing and dirt bike riding. Enrol him in a class relating to a hobby of interest, such as cooking, photography or golf.

Charitable Donations

Dads will appreciate charitable donations to organisations they remain passionate about, including everything from disease research, to preservation societies, to art programs in the schools. Some companies allow you to buy gift cards that the recipient can then use to donate to a charity of his choice. Donate your time to your father's pet cause as well. For instance, volunteer to build homes for the underprivileged, read books at a children's hospital, answer calls for a suicide hotline or donate hours at a battered women's shelter.

Monthly Clubs

Provide your father with variety by enrolling him in a monthly club, with goods typically arriving via mail. For instance, red meat eaters will enjoy a steak-of-the-month club while wine aficionados will appreciate a wine-of-the-month club. Additional gourmet fare includes coffee, tea, chocolate, fruit and cheese clubs. Dads who maintain busy schedules will appreciate a dinner-of-the-month club, providing them with a full meal and dessert on a monthly basis. Artistic types will enjoy membership to a book or foreign film club.
