Father’s Day is an occasion to honor fatherhood. A father is not just a bread winner but someone who is looked up to for guidance. He shoulders the responsibility of the entire family. His acts of love are often taken for granted. We don’t always seem to see the effort he puts in to run the house. We often fail to take notice, mostly because we see his acts of love more as an obligation.
Yet, a father is someone who sacrifices his time and energy selflessly so that we could live comfortably.
When you recall all the wonderful things your father has done for you over the years, it can be a challenging task to know where to start and how you would like to pay tribute to him. With Father’s Day on the way, it’s a perfect time to make him feel special!
Find Out What He Loves
The humblest way of saying thank you to your father is by giving him a gift. Instead of falling into the trap of gifting a typical—boring gift (does he really want another tie?), keep some time aside to think about him, and what he likes. Remember, men too have a desire for things that they may want dearly but they won’t justify buying it for themselves. If you could learn of this secret, you have already won half the battle of making him feel special.
The gift doesn’t have to be very expensive or too extravagant.
It should be something that comes from the heart.
Give Him Something as Unique as Him
I think that an interesting option is a customized gift or even better a DIY gift! Especially if you and/or your kid can make it. You could start by choosing your favourite family photo or even one of your kids drawing. Then decide how you would like to have it personalized. You could choose from a variety of options such as coffee mugs, mouse pads, t-shirts, even bed sheets. You can design a Father’s Day card by making use of your favorite photos and having some heartfelt text written on it like “Love you dad” or “Best dad in the world”.
Always remember that Father’s day is not just an occasion but a celebration, a way to thank our father (and the father of our child) for all the love he has shown. It is a day to build strong paternal bonds, a day to make society aware of the hidden force that constantly works for their family’s well-being.
