Gifts for Dad and a Great Sweepstakes Tip

papá cantando -

My blog post was written as part of my collaboration with eBay.

A year ago we celebrated Father’s Day in Mexico. It was an especially happy event. The children in the family sang a special song and choreographed a dance for all the fathers in the family. The women cooked and made festive desserts and we all had a very good time.

Our family fiestas are always full of music, it’s part of our identity. When my papa was younger he belonged to a musical group, and later, when I was still a girl, a group of family members and friends formed a Rondalla, which became very popular at parties and other get-togethers. For as long as I can remember, my father has always had music playing continuously in the house and in the car. He has always liked classical music, Boleros, and instrumental music of all kinds.

Because of this, I always know that if I give him a gift related to music, he will always like it.

To help me in my search for the perfect gift this year, I headed over to eBay and organized a couple of collections. One collection includes gift ideas inspired by my dad. He loves music, photography, watches and cologne, and so these are some of the interesting things I found.

I also thought I would put together a collection of great gifts my dad would never ask for, but he would still love:

eBay has created a special area with gift ideas for dads in several different categories to make choosing the perfect gift easier this year. But beyond that, if you have your own eBay account (which is free and lets you buy and sell on eBay) you can create collections and share them yourself, which is not only fun, but in this case, will allow you the opportunity to participate for the chance to win a $500 shopping spree on eBay! It’s like a dream, right?

All you need to do is create a collection of at least 8 things and use #eBayDad in the title and the description. Read all the details and official rules here.

Do you have any ideas for gifts for the dads in your family?
