Happy Father's Day to all Fathers and Father-Figures out there. We thank you for the ways in which you serve your families and seek to make the world a better place. Whether you're been a father for 60 years or this is your very first Father's Day as a dad, we this Sunday we raise our glass to you.
For those of you looking to give your father figure a token of your love on this Father's Day, we thought it would be good to give you suggestions based on what stage the person you're buying for is in. So, we have gone through different stages of Fatherhood to give you some suggestions on what your Father may enjoy best!
Brand New Father: Father’s Day is such a special day at any stage, but for brand new Fathers it is a completely new celebration of a role they may have always wanted to take on. This Dad has learned a lot already and is in for a lifetime of adventure. One gift idea would be to give him a book of advice on Fatherhood! Ask important men in his life to share their best advice, then put it all together in a book with pictures of him and his special people. Chances are he will really, really appreciate the advice and the encouragement of those who have come before him.
Father of Children and/or Young Adults: Nothing is more beautiful than Fatherhood, but at the same time few things are as exhausting. A good gift idea for this Father would be an evening out for him and his partner, friends, or self. This way he has time to relax and do something he enjoys before coming back home to a busy house full of the family he loves so much. We're sure he adores you; but we could all use a night off sometimes. You could buy him a gift card to his favorite restaurant, make a golf reservation for him, rent him an Airbnb for him and his buddies to go away one weekend, or anything along those lines.
Experienced Father: When all of a Father’s children have flown away from the nest, the most valuable gift becomes time spent together. Take your Father out for dinner, go on a little day trip, go out for coffee, anything where you are spending one-on-one time with your Father. He will appreciate it more than any gift you could give him.
Have an amazing Father’s Day! We hope you spend it with the ones you love.
