10 Father’s Day Gift Ideas for a Highly Sensitive Father 

Next Sunday is Father’s Day and if you’re still wondering what to gift that highly sensitive father in your life then you probably can’t go wrong with one of these ten ideas.

  1. Dad’s Dadville car track play shirt – dad gets a little lie down and can enjoy a back massage from his children whilst entertaining them at the same time. Some training in gentle car handling may be necessary before dad’s back is put to the test……..
  2. Ocean wave light projector – even if he lives hundreds of miles from the sea the father in your life can still enjoy the relaxing nature of the waves in his home office/bathroom/shed. (UK Link)
  3. The Highly Sensitive Person book by Elaine Aron – this is essential reading for any highly sensitive person. (UK Link)
  4. The Highly Sensitive Person in Love, also written by Elaine Aron but this time about highly sensitive people and relationships. (UK Link)
  5. Lava lamp – a relaxing addition to the home office, living room or bedroom. A great bucket emptier, even for dads.(UK Link)
  6. The Highly Sensitive Person’s Workbook by Elaine Aron is a collection of exercises designed to help identify highly sensitive traits and then support the reader to live more effectively with these traits in mind. (UK Link)
  7. Noise reducing headphones – if the highly sensitive father in your home is sensitive to noise, then headphones that reduce audio stimuli is something he’ll surely thank you for the next time the kids are over-exercising their vocal chords……(UK Link)
  8. A kindle reader – reading empties an overfull or filling bucket. With an e-reader dad always has a book on hand to switch off and get some quiet time. (UK Link Here). You can also combine this gift idea with numbers 3, 4, 6 and 10!
  9. Eye mask – some HSPs are particularly sensitive to light. An eye mask solves this, whether it’s for those regular plane journeys, or simply a good night’s sleep at home. (UK Link)
  10. The Power of Sensitivity by Ted Zeff – reading the success stories of other highly sensitive people is extremely motivating and empowering. This is a collection of positive stories collected from HSPs across the globe. (UK Link)
