Sunday, June 16 is just around the corner, so plan now for great ways to make your dad a star on his special day! Here are some gift ideas that are sure to make him smile…
•Gear Up and Get Outdoors! Make the most of warmer temperatures and surprise dad with a hike or a few fun hours of fishing with the family! Bring a picnic basket filled with dad’s favorite snacks!
•Sports, of Course! Sweet summer days can’t be beat when they feature a trip to the ballpark and an afternoon of popcorn, peanuts and the all-American hotdog! Present dad with baseball tickets wrapped up with a home-team cap and some slick sunglasses to get him into the spirit of the season. Or if it’s golf he loves, treat him to a round with a friend at his favorite course.
•Photo Op! Show dad how much you care with a fun family snapshot! Personalize the frame with words describing all his great qualities. Or, make a card from a retro photo!
•A Day Off! Show your love with some sweat equity! Surprise dad by cutting the lawn or moving some mulch. Or, wash his car and clean and organize the garage.
•Techno Smart. From remote holders to the latest TV, there are enough great gadgets and gizmos to make dad’s head spin! Simplify his workweek with a cutting-edge alarm clock or an organizational “APP” for his mobile phone.
•Get Grilling. Steaks for dinner, bacon for breakfast. Make a meal to remember! Serve it up on festive napkins and plates—or design some placemats with drawings and fun facts about dad!
•Musical Memories. Create some CDs of dad’s favorite songs for road trips or just relaxing around the house. Tie them up with ribbons and deliver with a special note.
•Plug in with Power Tools! Always a winner, add a spark to his workbench with a gift card to the local hardware or appliance store.
