Father’s Day is coming. Are you ready? Have you thought about what you can do to make this Father’s Day extra special for the special man in your life? We can help! Don’t stress. These are simple yet effective ways to give Dad a day to remember and let him know how much you love and appreciate him. Try one or try them all!
One of the bests gifts you can give is to take the pressure off from too many expectations, hassles or things to do on this day. That includes planning “the perfect” Father’s Day. Instead, try to make sure Dad doesn’t have any big projects, to-do lists, chores, or too much rushing around this Father’s Day. Let him relax!
The gift of quality time is a most precious gift and one that is often taken for granted. Take this Father’s Day to focus on the family and spend time together talking, sharing and dreaming. When’s the last time you asked Dad about his hopes and dreams? How he feels about life? What matters to him? Now is the time. Choose activities that foster quiet quality time together whether it’s a walk in the park, a special picnic, or just lying around in the hammock. The time together and communication are sure to be remembered, and truly cherished.
Focus on Him
We’re not saying to neglect planning any special activities on Father’s Day. But we are saying that the focus should be on Dad, not on what everyone else wants to do. Instead of planning everything out on that day, let Dad choose what he wants to do or how he’d like to spend his time. Center your day around something that is meaningful to him, whether or not the rest of the family enjoys that particular activity. If he needs or wants some time to himself to pursue a long-lost hobby or recreational activity, then let him do it. He surely deserves it!
Praise Goes a Long Way
