It is getting closer and closer to summer. With the bringing in of summer comes a special holiday for dads! Father’s Day is just as important as Mother’s Day is to parents. What better way to celebrate this special day with dad, than to give him something from the kid(s). This is where being creative and fun comes into place! Check out these neat ideas for dad!
Homemade Father’s Day Card: This is most definitely a must for every father out there! This will give the kids an opportunity to show their creative skills off for dad as well. You can use anything from a blank card you purchase to a brown paper sandwich bag you have in the pantry. If you’re feeling really creative, you can work with stamps or foam letters to add a little more flash to the card. Remember though, it is from the kids so letting them do it on their own is important. If they don’t ask for help, just them do it on their own (with supervision of course). This will be a great start to any dad’s day!
Personalized Gift For Dad: While I must admit it may sound cheesy, it is indeed a very cute idea coming from the kids. You can choose from things like a T-shirt, a coffee mug with photos printed on it, and even some DIY homemade handprints for dad to hang on his wall at work or home. Check out Gifts for Proud Dads and see what kind of personalized gift you think he will like! They even have stuff for the new dad in 2010!
Sports Themed Gift: As stereotypical as it sounds, most men enjoy sports to a certain extent. This is a great idea for dad, especially if the children participate in the sports with him! If dad enjoys something along the lines of NASCAR, you can check out their site for awesome gifts he would enjoy! If dad is a baseball fan, tickets to a game versus his favorite opponent would be another fantastic choice! Whichever sport it is, this will be a guaranteed hit with dad!
Hobby Related Gift: Many men in general enjoy some sort of hobby. Hobbies can range from fishing and hunting to rebuilding older car models in the garage. If dad loves fishing, you could purchase a new pole and some new tackle. If you do the fishing thing, make sure the child(ren) also have fishing poles so they can tag along with dad when he uses the gift for the first time! If cars is dad’s thing, then some new tools might be in order. This would be awesome especially if the child(ren) often hang out with dad and have their own “tools” to help with. If you are in doubt on gifts, hobbies are always the safe way to go!
