We Know What Your Dad Wants!
It’s going to be hard to accept this but some fathers are tired of receiving the same ol’ gift year after year. Those traditional gifts like socks, ties, and wallets are definitely classics but luckily for you, those tried and true oldies are out and unique gifts are all the rage now -- they’re very fetch!
Dads seem to get stuck in this loop of receiving janky repetitive gifts that usually pale in comparison to the gifts that mothers receive. However, that doesn’t mean it’s too late for a change. This Father’s Day, (Sunday, June 21st), is the perfect time to combine some of your gift ideas and create a gift basket for your dad.

Punny Papas 💚 Plants!
It is hard for some people to think about purchasing flowers or other types of plants as a gift for their dad or father figure. It’s unfortunate that this idea exists because greenery is known to positively affect mental health! Anyone can benefit from the serenity that plant care brings into their life.
Moss balls, also known as marimo, are ideal for those who don’t want the hassle of dealing with a traditional pet because they require little to no care and you don’t need to feed them! One of the best things about getting your dad a moss ball pet is the number of dad jokes that can be used, here are some of our favorites (Source: Thought Catalog | Maria Monrovia):
What kind of flowers bloom on your face?
- Tulips! (Do you get it? Two lips?)
What do plants do when they first meet each other?
- They in-tree-duce themselves!
How do plants practice self-care?
- They try to weed out unnecessary drama!
Now is the time to wow your father with luck for life. If you’d really like to maximize the mental health-boosting properties of plants, you could give your parent a trio of plants including a moss ball pet, an aloe vera plant, and another variety of potted plants.
Take this gift idea a step further by pairing it with a pair of cozy socks or a mug, and a homemade card that says, ‘Aloe you very much!’.
