Dads, it’s your turn! We’re celebrating dads of all kinds – is there a special man in your life like your dad, father-in-law, stepdad, foster dad, grandpa, uncle, father of your children, “second dad” or father figure? Well, then this list to make their day will certainly help you plan a celebration. Here are a few things you can do to amp up the kindness vibe on Father’s Day for the incredible men in your life.
Say thank you – This one is good for dads too! Dads do so much for their families and hearing thank you can be the difference between a good day and a bad day. Make sure to thank your dad for all his hard work.
Start a “Dad jar” – This Father’s Day, gift your dad a hand-decorated jar, and then fill it with little notes of appreciation or kindness throughout the year. Next year for Father’s Day, let your dad read through all the nice thoughts you’ve had about him.
Plan something special – Sometimes dads don’t get to do what they want to do, often putting the family’s interests before their own. Plan something that your dad will love like a poker game (use chocolate coins for betting), video game time, a special hike or an outing to a car show. Whatever your dad loves, embrace his interests and plan a fun activity just for him.
Spa dad – Spa trips aren’t just for moms! Treat your dad to a massage, sauna time or other spa treatment. How about a pedicure with foot massage for a dad that’s on his feet all day? He deserves a taste of the finer things in life.
Bake a treat – You know what they say, the key to a man’s heart is through his stomach. Bake your dad a special dessert that will satisfy his sweet tooth and his soul.
Chore coupons – Dads are often responsible for the dirty jobs around the house. Taking out the trash, washing the cars, cleaning the garage and yardwork. It can be a lot! Give your dad a chore coupon book that lets him relax while you do the heavy lifting.
Don’t stop now – Dads are wonderful beacons of direction and guidance — devoted to providing love and happiness for their families. Give them your kindness and support all year for a dad that’s smiling.
