Fathers are special creatures. They’re our superheroes, the role models we look up to and the wisdom and guidance they provide are immense. That’s why they’re cherished by everyone even when they get old. A good way of doing this is by showing appreciation and one day, in particular, is dedicated to them. Yes, Father’s day.
Father’s day is a day rightfully set aside for the celebration of fathers (and father figures too) who have been doing a good job of being the fatherly figure that kids love and adore. It could be celebrated with a song, a trip to the park or restaurant, or even the traditional gift card and handing out of gifts.
I get excited about Father’s Day ideas for a couple of weeks after Father’s Day when I see things that I should have thought about getting for that year. When June rolls around, they all disappear from my head. But last weekend I started to pull together a couple of ideas, and with the help of the site Plow and Hearth, it’s easier to see many gift ideas.
One gift idea is from a game that he’ll remember from being a kid, trackball! Good fun for the whole family, even the dog (so keep him away from the plastic ball). Then there’s the possibly ridiculous, or potentially spot-on gift, a drink and hot dog skewer holder(you know, for while you’re busy doing another grilling.)
Other wonderful gift ideas include a wristwatch or pocket watch, a brand new tie to add to the already existing catalog of ties in the closet, a brand new grill (we just can’t understand the bond between a dad and his grill) or even a living room concert from the little ones. That’ll surely leave a smile on his face.
No matter what you give, the best gift will always be the love of close ones (and food of course), moments like these make father’s day a truly special day.
