Father’s Day Gift Ideas

Father's Day Gift

Father’s Day is only a week away, and you know what that means: it’s time to scramble to get those last-minute gifts if you haven’t already. We know that not all dads are electricians or lighting designers that would appreciate the gift of brand new LED lighting or electrical wire. So, we’ve put together a list of gifts that 1000Bulbs.com has to offer that will appeal to those of you looking for something that you know the father in our life will love.

For the Collector

Whether your dad is a racing, sailing, or aviation enthusiast, we have handcrafted model cars, boats, and planes that he will be proud to display on his mantle. In addition to these models, we have other vintage reproductions including collector’s games, nautical accessories such as compasses, bells, and clocks, and more.

For the Tech-Savvy Dad

One way to accomplish the back-lit look is by using strips of LED tape light to create a soft glow around the edges of your screen. USB tape light can also be used for easier application on computer monitors. This could be a great gift for the dad who watches sports in his dimly-lit man cave with his buddies or works on his computer late at night.

For the Holiday Enthusiast

Does your dad look forward to putting up the Christmas decorations every year? Does he have to have the best looking lightkeeper prohouse on the block during the holiday season? If so, he may appreciate the gift of new Christmas lights. At 1000Bulbs, we have a huge selection of holiday lights and decorations that will make any house sparkle. If your dad has all the Christmas lights and decorations he needs, there are always accessories like bulb testers and mini light caps to ensure light strings are functional and the bulb remain damage-free.

For the Car Lover

If your dad is anything like mine, keeping his car in impeccable condition is a top priority. Instead of having to run to the store every time one of his headlights burns out, wouldn’t it be nice if he had exactly what he needed on hand? If you don’t know what kind of automotive lights he needs – don’t worry; we can figure that out for you. Just enter the year, make, and model of his car into the part finder, and we’ll take to the exact replacement bulb his vehicle requires.
