Spend quality time with Dad
Most fathers tend to be nonmaterialistic and when the question of ‘‘What would you like for Father’s Day?’’ is posed to them, the answer is usually ‘‘I don’t want anything.’’
It’s not that dads are immune from the joy of receiving a gift but they simply don’t want a fuss made.
Although their reasoning is genuine, it leaves us with the predicament of having to second guess what they would truly like on their special day.
Father’s Day is a day to celebrate and commemorate the dads, stepfathers, grandfathers, fathers-in-law, uncles, godfathers, guardians or brothers who have played the role of father figure in your life.
Nobody knows your dad the way that you do so have a really good think about what makes him happy and what he would like.
You may feel that buying a card or the latest useless gadget is not good enough for your father and you’d rather look for something special.
Whether it’s a gift or an activity, let your dad know how much you love him.
Some dads enjoy going out for a meal on Father’s Day so make a reservation at his favourite restaurant as early as possible.
Father’s Day is a particularly busy day for people dining out so don’t leave organising this to the last minute.
What is your father’s favourite hobby?
Perhaps updating his fishing rod or golf clubs could be a good idea.
That way you’ll know he’ll get good use out of his gift and it’ll also give him a good excuse to try out his new gear on the river or golf course!
If your dad enjoys going to see a show, check the latest theatre listings for upcoming performances that he may like to see.
If your dad enjoys a challenge, then activities such as paintballing or go-karting could be the best way to spend the afternoon.
You could also go somewhere that gets the entire family involved.
A game of miniature golf or a trip to the movies will ensure that everyone spends time with Dad on his big day.
If your dad enjoys looking good, then an extra addition to his wardrobe would be warmly accepted.
With spring on its way, a new piece of clothing from the latest offerings in the shops would be an ideal choice to make.
Whether it’s a new shirt, jacket or pair of slacks, remember to ask your mother for your father’s correct measurements first!
No matter what you get you old man, make sure to spend some quality time with him on Father’s Day.
That’s the one thing he’ll always want.
