The Best Way to Show Dad You Love Him!

by Michelle Dempsey M.S., CPRW


Here are my tips for showering the special guys in your life with the best Father’s Day love they deserve:

1. Down time

Yes, I know what you’re thinking, Dads certainly get far more down time than Moms in (in many cases). But here’s what I had in mind: giving the special dad in your life an opportunity to spend time doing what he loves best. Maybe that’s just sitting in front of the television. Or maybe it’s on the golf course, in Home Depot, or at his favorite restaurant. Whatever it is, nothing shows your appreciation for someone like giving them the opportunity to enjoy what makes them happy, on their own time.

2. Skip the formal celebration

This kind of goes hand in hand with the last one. Brunch at the local overpriced hotspot in town to celebrate fatherhood? Did he even request that? Sure, it’s what the masses are doing – but we’re talking about the individual who has devoted himself to fatherhood, here. Create this year’s Father’s Day celebration around the activity he enjoys most, and this will be worth far more than any gift or trip to a fancy restaurant.

3. Give something worth holding on to

Sure, maybe the tie is something he needs, but when it comes to gifts from the heart, nothing is more meaningful than an item that increases its value or sentimentality over time. Maybe it’s a simple art project your child made, or a collector’s item they’d been hoping for. Personally, one thing I love to give the most is a great bottle of wine, particularly from Vivanco. This year, I stocked up on their Reserva 2007, the perfect gift  for the Dad who loves to relax with a wine worth collecting. Of course, this gift is slightly self-serving, but hey, it’s the thought that counts, right?
