Father’s Day is this coming soon! Have you taken care of your dad? Yes, your dad! I’m speaking mostly to the ladies of my age who have a senior citizen dad who is retired. If you haven’t had a chance to pick him up something yet, here’s a list of practical Father’s Day gifts, perfectly suited for retired dads or grandpas.
We always see lots of gift ideas for dads of the younger set but why not one for our own dads? My dad is 88 and he doesn’t want an i-Pad! Today I am sharing 17 practical gift ideas for the retired dad, because we should remember them and their unique tastes and needs.

I know there are a lot of retired gentlemen out there who like to go to their back yard and do a little bit of puttering around. But they need to have the right garden tool set!
And lest we forget that our dad’s may not want to kneel in the dirt, this is a great idea to help those older knees.
For the Fisherman:
My dad was a fisherman for many years and when he was not in his boat he was out on the beach throwing that line into the water. But he certainly didn’t need to be uncomfortable while waiting for the fish to bite.
This lure kit will certainly help to bring the fish in.
I know that dads can easily spend a whole day fishing, especially when there are fish to be caught. So let’s give him a cup of fresh coffee.
For the Woodworker:
Having a knowledge of the basics is so important for the beginner.
This kit is perfect for helping them to create all sorts of wood crafts.
Dad will need to be safe in order to create!
Safety Goggles are a must!
For the Automobile Enthusiast:
A First Aid Kit will definitely come in handy, especially if the car is full of grandkids!
Car Seat Protectors are a necessity for any grandfather who values his car interior! Plus they have lots of storage in the back.
For the Game Player:
Chess Set because grandpa deserves the best!
Bowling Ball Bag so he won’t have to lug those heavy balls.
I could use one of these Key Finders too!
Ear and Nose Hair is gone with this smart device.
An easy way to control all of his devices, so grandpa can relax in his recliner!
And we want grandfather to let us know who’s the boss with this fun t-shirt which comes in lots of colors!
These are my 17 practical Father’s Day gifts for the retired dad so that we can take care of our senior citizen fathers for this coming Father’s Day. And they can all be ordered last minute in order to arrive for that special day.
