Askmen.com did a survey of Dads and created a list of the ten worst Father’s Day gifts. Not surprisingly, novelty clothing like wacky ties and socks were on the list.
Dad’s smile when they get these, but they secretly hate them. And yet Dads continue to get these kinds of presents because children are often without a good idea as to what their Dad might want or find useful.
At True Dental Care Preston, we’re here to help you stay away from buying dad hygiene products, like nose hair trimmers or hair dye, or from worthless gag gifts. Instead, we suggest the gift of dental health – Give your Dad something he will like, use, and that will help his oral and overall health.
To help you, we’ve composed the following list of dental gift possibilities for your Dad.
Studies have indicated that electric toothbrushes are effective at removing dental plaque and can be much easier to use than conventional toothbrushes. This is particularly convenient for Dads who may have arthritis or other flexibility issues. Dentists suggest brushing teeth for a solid two minutes to lower the levels of the compound, but the reality is most people do not dedicate enough time to brushing and only commit about 45 seconds to their teeth, tongue, and gums. Most electric toothbrushes have internal timers that can make your Dad fully conscious of his brushing time.
Travelling dental kit – This is an excellent gift for a Dad who likes camping, fishing, or hunting. You can buy this ready-made, or create your own personalised for your Dad’s needs. A good dental kit should contain:
- Toothpaste: Place toothpaste tubes in a sealed container or plastic bag.
- Toothbrushes. Include extra toothbrushes!
- Floss and mouthwash.
- Individual items. Include any specific things your father might need or want, like denture-cleaning fluid, floss-threaders, or a mouthguard.
- True Dental Care’s phone number: Have our phone number readily accessible for unexpected situations.
If a kit is too bulky, at least buy a folding toothbrush. These travel toothbrushes can be folded down to half their original size and can be tossed into a glove compartment, coat pocket, or desk drawer.
DIY Toothbrush Holder, for that personal touch
Does your dad like gifts that you make for him yourself? Then he’d probably like a personalised toothbrush holder to brighten up his brushing. This article has some good ideas, including a toothbrush holder made out of an action figure and another made from a melted toothbrush (that’s kind of meta!). Most of these are easy to make, and inexpensive if you’re on a budget. Best of all, they are personalised for Dad, and personally created by you!
