    My Dad is a very simple person who does not like much pomp and show. He has limited needs and does not prefer fancy gifts.(vice versa in my case;))

    I am in a fix.....what to gift him?o_O He will not like it if I host a party and people come with gifts.:neutral:

    He has sacrificed a lot for the family. He has worked very hard and will retire on turning 60 :) Me and my husband really want to make him happy!

    Kindly suggest!

    How about gifting him a pilgrimage trip or some sight seeing trip which he might enjoy?

    Op, Why don't you gift him a trip with your mom. See rarely we hear our parents say they had a honeymoon. Why not a trip now.

    Recently my father got retired. I thought about trip but my mom's health doesnt co-operate
    So we have gifted clothes, couple gold rings and I made a big framed collage of around 120 photos (starting from his childhood and covering his entire 60 years journey) - This was a big hit!

    The answer depends on many factors such as geography to which he is exposed, various cycles of weather he would encounter, his hobbies, past time, spouse, theist, present and past health, his interest in literature, whether he is a netizen, official status of past and current, outlook western or occidental, etc. There are numerous things comes to mind. You can see him in modern haberdashery, if vision is corrected you can buy him power gogle in gold coated thin spectacle, if his ear lobes already adorned you can replace it and have wonderful selfi , you can buy him I phone, I pad, telescopic walking stick, and so on and so forth!!!! With my best wishes to your dad
    Regards.
