“A father is a son’s first hero and a daughter’s first love”- this statement couldn’t have been truer. For all that our dads do for us and for all they are to us, here are a few simple ways to make him feel special and make him know how much he means to you!
1. It’s Father’s Day. Try to make your dad feel that he is special! Start his special day by making him breakfast, bringing him the newspaper to read in bed, make tea for him just the way he likes.
2. Try making it a family event by bringing all the dads in your family together and other family members for a fun day. Nothing is merrier and more enjoyable than the family gathering. Feed all the dads with their favorite home-made delicacies.
3. You can also plan a family picnic at some good picnic location and do all the picnic kinda stuff there like playing games etc. Again, a family gathering is always fun.
4. If your father is a sports buff, you can take him to his favorite sporting event. Arrange for the tickets and he is surely gonna love it.
5. This time instead of ordering a cake from your local bakery, bake a cake for him yourself. The time and efforts you put in to make this personalized cake for him will be deeply appreciated by him.
6. All men are fond of eating. Make your father his favorite dishes for dinner.
7. If you’re artistically inclined, draw or paint a portrait of your dad from a favorite photo or from memory.
8. Make a fun banner that says, “You’re the best dad!” and hang it outside his bedroom so that the first thing he sees in the morning as he wakes up is that.
9. You can express your special feelings for your father by writing a poem for him. You can write about your childhood moments with him and tell him how much he means to you.
10. Look at old photos of you and your dad doing fun things together. Take a walk down memory lane by creating either a photo album or a photo slideshow.
11. Dads are responsible for at least one half of the financial and emotional well-being of the family. Give dad a heartfelt speech or card of genuine, loving words at the dinner table, or at some other point when all the family are around.
12. It does not take material presents to make a dad happy—it takes showing your love, and reassuring your dad that you’re proud of him and all he’s done for you. For many fathers, the most rewarding part of being a father is the feeling that your children love you!
13. Father’s Day might be a good time to tell him that you’re sorry for past mistakes. Use Father’s Day as an opportunity to tell him that you love and appreciate him. When he is gone, you will wish you had.
