Celebrate The Perfect Father’s Day

Father’s Day is an occasion to mark and celebrate the contribution that your father has made to your life.  Now is the perfect time to plan the ideal celebration for dad.  The secret to making it special is to customize by surrounding him with the things he loves.  No matter the age or disability, there is no match for spending quality time together with dad.

 

  • The best celebrations are planned around his hobbies.  Taking a walk, or just grilling, relaxing and reminiscing in the back yard can make his day.
  • How about a day off from cooking.  Invite him over for a home-cooked meal of his favorite dishes, or a brunch or dinner outdoors.
  • Consider spending some time showing dad how to text, use features on his cell phone, like facetime, or play a video game!
  • For dads who are little less mobile and have less dexterity, ask them to choose three things on their list of things to get done around the house and get it done for them on this special day!
  • A memory book from the grandkids highlighting recent events and achievements is a great gift for a dad who can’t get out as much these days.
  • For the dad who likes to travel, how about asking about his favorite park and take him for a ride, topped offed with a stop for ice cream with the grandkids afterwards.
  • If you live away from dad, always appreciated is a phone call, video call, greeting card or care package filled with his favorite goodies.
