Everyone enjoys receiving birthday wishes on their birthday, but who else is more deserving than loving uncles? Below we have provided reasons as to why uncles are so awesome and deserving of birthday wishes as well as some gift ideas and "happy birthday uncle" wishes for those amazing uncles in your lives.
Why Uncles Are Awesome
Below is a list of reasons uncles are so awesome and why it is important to wish them a happy birthday every year.
They Love Their Nieces/Nephews
This is probably obvious, but uncles aren't obligated to love their nieces/nephews..
They Make Their Nieces/Nephews Laugh
Uncles just tend to beabsolutely hilarious and can make their nieces/nephews laugh even on their worst days.
They Care about Their Nieces/Nephews
Outside of their parents, it is important for kids to have family members who truly care about them. That is where an uncle comes in, and an uncle's love and care is the closest thing a child can experience to a parent's.
They Are Fun
Uncles tend to be more fun than parents and allow niece/nephews to bend the rules a bit more. Most of the time spent with uncles is all about fun and games.
They Enjoy Playing with Their Nieces/Nephews
Uncles tend to embrace their inner child and have a blast playing with their nieces/nephews. Whether it be video games or dress up, uncles are the best friend a kid could ask for.
They Tend to Have Less Anxiety than Parents
Because uncles usually have fewer responsibilities than parents in terms of childcare, they are far less anxious. This provides a much needed mellow and calm environment for their nieces and nephews.
They Give Treats
Uncles usually bend the rules when it comes to treats allowed. They are usually the ones who sneak their nieces and nephews an extra piece of candy or allow the kids to have a bowl of ice cream after dinner.
They Teach Their Nieces/Nephews
Kids tend to open up to uncles because they can come to them about stuff that they may not be able to or feel comfortable with coming to their parents about. This allows uncles to teach their nieces and nephews important life lessons when it comes to things like relationships and friendships.
Celebration & Gift Ideas
Below is a list of gift ideas perfect for any uncle.
From t-shirts to beer glasses, every uncle would appreciate a personalized item that is unique and specifically for them. You can always add their initials, names, or sayings like "Best Uncle Ever" to one of these personalized items.
Scratch-Off Beer Poster
For those of you with beer connoisseur uncles, this is the perfect gift. The poster contains a list of 100 of the most popular craft beers. Once they try one of the beers on the list, they can scratch it off the poster with a coin.
Hot Sauce Kit
For those of you who have uncles that love spicy foods and love a good kick, this gift is the one for you. You can buy a pre-made hot sauce pack that has different hot sauce flavors OR you can purchase a DIY hot sauce that includes all the equipment and ingredients to create your own personalized hot sauces.
The Arccos Caddie Smart Golf Sensors
This is the perfect gift for uncles who enjoy playing golf. The Arccos Caddie provides sensors for each golf club in a golfer's bag, totaling 14 in all. Using artificial intelligence, these sensors can be attached to each golf club and can provide information and analysis on each shot taken. The product also provides tips and tricks also to assist golfers in making smarter shot decisions.
Baseball Whisky Chillers
Baseball whiskey chillers are the perfect gift for any uncle who plays or enjoys watching baseball. The chillers are in the shape of a baseball and don't water down your drinks like ice does. These can be used for any beverage, not just whiskey.
If you have a curious uncle who you would think would be interested in learning about their ancestry, then get them a DNA kit. This allows uncles (and even you) to find out about where your family is from and details about your family's ancestors.
Picture of You with a Personalized Picture Frame
This gift idea is for those who have uncles who tend to be nostalgic and love personalized gifts. You can use a family photo, a photo of just you, or a photo of you guys together. Place it in a personalized picture frame. You can even include a cute uncle poem along with it.
Beard Grooming Kit
If you have an uncle with an awesome beard, this gift idea is for you; especially if your uncle takes his beard seriously. Most kits include a brush or comb, shaving and after shave cream, and beard oil to keep beards in tip top shape.
Beer Making Kit
This is another great gift for the beer aficionado uncle in your life. Like the hot sauce kit, a beer making kit includes all the necessary equipment and ingredients needed to brew your own beer at home.
