With the celebration of graduates and the school year ending for many young folks, Father’s Day can often get lost in the shuffle and catch us by surprise!
If it’s too late to order something special (shipping delays can be a beast!) you need not despair. A wonderful Father’s Day is at your fingertips with just a little planning--and it doesn’t have to be expensive!
And Remember This: Father’s Day isn’t just about a biological Dad. This day should be a day of celebration honoring all the special and encouraging men in your life—and genetics aren’t required! Consider taking this opportunity to honor a special teacher, an uncle or even a neighbor that has made a difference if your life. It’s a great way to celebrate the third Sunday in June!
Check out a few of these last-minute ideas that don’t cost a lot—and don’t feel last-minute! Dad will feel special as the recipient of any of these kind gestures.
Get Those Socks in a Row
How about organizing Dad’s sock drawer? It’s fun for kids of all ages who can help sort by color or size. And don’t stop there! Why not organize his shoes and t-shirts too? It’s not a big deal, but it’s a beautiful gesture that just might simplify his life.
Movie Night—Focused on Dad!
Everyone loves a Family Movie Night. But this time it’s Dad’s turn to choose the flick. Grab his favorite movie snacks and get the popcorn ready.
Who doesn’t love homemade cookies? Nothing is tastier than a warm cookie straight from the oven. If you are looking for inspiration, you should try this recipe. Brook says it’s guaranteed to please.
A Little Family History
Gather everyone around and give Dad (or Grandpa) the opportunity to answer questions about his childhood, school memories and more. He’ll appreciate the interest, and it’s a great opportunity to share a little family history with the family.
Everyone loves a clean car. But life (and kids!) can take a toll on our vehicles. Surprise Dad with a thorough cleaning—inside and out! And then hop in and head to the nearest ice cream shop. Everyone wins!
