What do dads and grads have in common? They both give us reasons to celebrate this time of year. Father’s Day and graduation season have arrived leaving many of us scratching our heads when thinking of a gift that expresses just how much we love them. This year ditch the tie and gift card and get a little creative.

Some of Andrew’s tips will include:

  • Getaways: What better gift for someone who works hard every day, whether at school or at raising children, than a relaxing break from routine? They’re perfect for a solo getaway or for the whole family!
  • DIY: Whether for the dad who doubles as a handyman or a grad who is assembling furniture for their new college digs, a tool kit will always come in handy.
  • Team up: Save your typical gift ideas for the Holidays and make a big impression in June. Go in on the gift with your family and get more bang for your buck!
  • Upgrade: The tech industry usually runs huge sales during holiday seasons. It’s worth checking if there are any BOGO promotions on hot gadgets upgrades that both dad and your grad can enjoy.
