Father's Day

Ultimate Father’s Day Gifts Guide – For 16 Different Dad Types

Dad Type

Hey Friends, Great to see you here. Especially since Father’s Day is just round the corner.

So what do we normally think of when we think about Father’s Day?

Father’s Day gifts? That’s it?

Well, I think just thinking of Father’s Day as synonymous with Father’s Day gifts would be a bit of a cliché.

And now, since Father’s Day is just a few days away, let’s see how the role of a Father has changed or evolved with time.

Lately, I was just wondering as to how the role of Dads has changed over different generations. I remember in my childhood days, dads were more of just the bread earner types & moms were the ones to take care of kids.

But with changing times, there has been a change or shift in the role of a dad. A Father is no longer just a bread earner in the house. He has much more to contribute.

Today’s Dad, I think is more engaging with kids. Of course, there are exceptions. But by far, I think Dad’s today are more as a friend to their kids than what dads were during my childhood days (circa 80s -90s)

So lets see the different Dad types that we can spot in today’s times & what kind of gift items they might like this Father’s Day.
