We’re coming up on Father’s Day, and if you haven’t yet thought up the perfect way to make Dad’s day, you might want to let the cosmos be your guide.
My own dad is a Leo, so he always appreciates looking good. This is him with me at the Oregon coast about a hundred years ago, and as you can see he was quite handsome — and still is!
I often get him one of those semi-cheesy Hawaiian shirts that never seem to go out of style (mostly because they were never in style to begin with), or a fancy dop kit with expensive, nice-smelling shave cream. And I haven’t had a complaint out of dad, yet!
Here are some more great ideas based on your own dad’s horoscope sign:
Aries (March 21 – April 19) — Fire up the grill! Aries is a fire sign, so get him a new barbecue or accessories to fuel his flame!
Taurus (April 20 – May 20) — Taurus dad’s love to relax, eat, get outdoors and chill. Make him an elaborate dinner, or get him a gift certificate for a massage.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20) — These intellectual dads love to read, watch movies, play with gadgets and video games. Get him something to stimulate his mind!
Cancer (June 21 – July 22) — Cancer dads are softies, so get him something sentimental. Think about a framed family photo or a really sweet card.
Leo (July 23 – August 22) — Glamorous Leo dads love to look good, so get him a stylish shirt or a new grooming kit!
Virgo (August 23 – September 22) — Virgo dads are very practical, and they’re also into good health. Give him something he can use for both, like a new pair of running shoes or comfy headphones he can wear while working out.
Libra (September 23 – October 22) — These social dads love to dress up and go out, so think about a gift certificate to a restaurant or a show, and maybe a bottle of cologne to spruce him up before the big night out.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21) — Scorpio dads love mystery, so a great spy novel by someone like John le Carré would be perfect. Or take a step further and get him a police scanner so he can listen in on some real life action!
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21) — Sag dads love parties and adventure, so get him something new for camping or related to travel. He’d love a backpacking stove, a passport holder or a membership to the Beer-of-the-Month club.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19) — These hardworking dads take their careers and their finances seriously. Try gifting him an engraved money clip, or a new leather briefcase to keep his papers in order.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18) –Quirky, intellectual Aquarius dads love new technology. Get him a new gadget from the electronics store, like something to help him keep track of those keys he’s always losing!
Pisces (February 19 – March 20) — Artsy Pisces dads often love to write or take photos. Photography equipment is a great gift, or a fancy engraved pen and leather journal to document his dreams.
Have a great Father’s Day! Here’s one last gift idea:
