6 Father’s Day Gift Card Ideas – He Has Enough Mugs!

The not-so-celebrated holiday is around the corner, and the only people anticipating this day are supermarket owners. The “World’s best dad” mug has been carrying this holiday on its back even before I was born. It is safe to say that gifting your dad that mug on Father’s Day is now a tradition.

I know the lazy excuse, which I am also guilty of, is saying they already have everything, or you do not know what to get them because they literally do not like anything. But if we are being honest with ourselves, that cannot be true. 

Gift cards are one of the best presents to give your dad or the father figure in your life. Not only does it show you care, but they are also functional because they can purchase the items they want with it.  My job today is to give you a few gift card ideas they would appreciate and use. Hopefully, the popular notion that Father’s Day is not as important as Mother’s Day can change after tomorrow. 

Six Gift Cards Ideas For Father’s Day

The top six gift cards you can gift your dad or the father figure in your life include;  Google Play gift cards,  Apple gift cards, Nike gift cards, Amazon gift cards, Nordstrom gift cards, and Visa Gift Cards. 

1. Google Play Gift Card:

This would be a suitable gift card for your dad if he is an Android user. With a Google Play gift card, he can purchase paid apps on the play store and keep himself entertained and informed.  We all know how skeptical Nigerian dads get about inputting the details of their debit or credit cards online. But with the google play gift card, they wouldn’t have to do so

2. Apple Gift Card:

On the other hand, if your dad is an Apple user, the Apple gift card is the perfect gift card idea for him. He can purchase applications on the IOS Apple store and Apple products with an Apple gift card. So if they want to upgrade their iPhones, iPods, or Macs, this gift card can help them do just that.
