We celebrate fathers one a year, and take the time to make sure that they know how much we really care about them. Traditionally, Father’s Day is spent outside, enjoying the summer sun. However, there’s no need to be boring when your father deserves so much more this year. Here are few ideas to help you have the best Father’s Day celebration, honoring your father as much as he truly deserves.
First, make sure that you get him a gift that really speaks to his personality and interests. Don’t settle for just a card or, worse yet, another tie that he’ll probably never wear or mug that he’ll probably never drink from. Instead, get him a gift that matches his personal interests. For example, if he’s an enthusiast of the 2nd amendment, pick him up useful magazines for glocks from a company like Glock Store. If he is a big-time sports fan, get him tickets to a game or some kind of memorabilia. If he’s a movie buff, get him passes to an opening night or the autograph of his favorite actor. These gifts will show him that you care and that you‘re paying attention.
Next, consider going somewhere together to celebrate Father’s Day. While you may stick to hosting a barbecue or relaxing at home, don’t pick an activity that makes your dad work on his own holiday. Instead, offer to take him somewhere interesting. Go to a paintball course and have a fun game, or drive out to the country for a relaxing hike in the wilderness. Find out if there are any free outdoor concerts or other events in your area. The memories from these trips will outlast any traditional present.
Finally, make sure that you take the time to tell your Dad how you feel about him. It can be difficult to express your feelings, so get him a card that does the talking for you. Better yet, write him a note. Be sure to mention that you‘re thankful for all of the good things he has done for you. Don’t be afraid to be a little be sentimental, since that is the whole point of the holiday.
This Father’s Day, give your father a remarkable gift that he’ll never forget. Let him know how much you care about him on this fun summer day.
