The third Sunday in June is once again upon us, which means it’s time to celebrate the man who has raised you, loved you, and taught you how to navigate the big, wide word. Dad’s are the ultimate role models and while they deserve recognition each and every day of the year, the least we can do as children, is to take this one special day set aside just for Dad, and do something wonderful. What will you be doing for your Dad? Read on for some great ideas!
Breakfast in Bed:
You know what they say. The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. So why not capitalize on that? Make Dad his favorite breakfast served up with a strong cup of joe (yeah, all you scrubs clad nurses know exactly how important that early morning brew is!), and the morning paper. Ahhhh, now that’s the perfect start to a perfect day!
Make It a Family Thing:
Round up the masses! Get the entire family together even if everyone is all grown up and living their own lives. Father’s Day is a family affair, so head out to the beach or choose a beautiful scenic park to spend the day at. And you obviously need activities, so bring along a ball, fishing rods if there’s a lake, a picnic so you can have a relaxing family lunch, and a grill so you can end the day with a barbecue bash!
Feeling sentimental? Rummage through that stack of old photos collecting dust down in your parents’ basement, and put together a fun, little scrapbook highlighting your favorite childhood memories. Dad will love it; guaranteed!
Pen a Letter:
A letter is forever! Write down everything you’ve ever wanted to tell your Dad, (the positive, of course!), then seal it with a kiss and watch his eyes mist over as he reads how you truly feel about him. A material gift is nice and all, but a letter from the heart is worth more than the most expensive present you can get him!
Say It With Words:
Before the day is over, make sure to walk up to your Dad, give him your biggest bear hug, and say the words, “I love you!” out loud! That’s all your Dad really wants on his big day; the reassurance that his children love him and that he’s set them on a path for success.
Thank you, Dad!
