5 Tips For Celebrating Dad This Father's Day
June 13, 2017 at midnight
Here are some tips:
1. Do Something Based Around Past Memories
The day is about him. You may not enjoy sports, but if there's a big game on, get the best tickets you can. Does he like nature? If he's up to it, take him on a hike, or maybe he is a keen fisherman. These are activities Dad probably liked doing with you when you were growing up. Nostalgia is a great emotion to work with.
2. Don’t Make The Day Necessarily Focus On Him
If your dad doesn’t like to create a fuss, get all his favorite people together. Let the family get together and spend the day with one another. If you need another excuse, make the event based around a BBQ, a typical Dad thing to do.
3. Embrace Your Father Figures
'Dad' doesn't have to mean your biological father. You might have several father figures in your life. Everyone's situation is different, but whatever the case may be, ultimately the relationship is special to you and that man.
4. Share Time & Show Appreciation
There are plenty of studies showing that one of the biggest regrets people have is not spending more time with their parents. You spend most of the time you’ll ever spend with them before the age of 15. It’s time to let your guard down and open the communication lines with gratitude and care. And use of the word 'love'.
This isn’t always easy, but with a bit of careful thinking, gift giving can be really rewarding. Consider these three Ps for the perfect present.
Practical Gifts: If you’re Dad is a practical man, don’t get something that goes straight to the back cupboard. With a bit of communication with others close to him, you’ll figure out what he needs soon enough. Popular options are work shirts, restaurant vouchers, and accessories for his hobbies.
Personalized Gifts: Your dad may be humble, but personalizing something he’ll use will ensure he knows he is loved. You might like to do that to a watch for him, get his name on the back of his favorite footy teams cheers or a beer mug. You get the idea.
Perfect Bucket List Gifts: Whether you believe in bucket lists or not, there are a few things everyone wants in life. That might mean Dad gets some new sports gear, a helicopter ride, or a ticket to a concert.
