Whether you’ll be celebrating one wonderful dad or several special guys on Father’s Day, finding a great card or ecard is usually pretty easy to do. Figuring out what to say in a Father’s Day card, however, can sometimes leave you staring at a blank page. Here are some idea-starters:
Tickle His Funny Bone
— If sentimental isn’t your style—or his—then even Father’s Day isn’t the time to get sappy. Keep your note simple with some of these humorous spins:
- Thanks for all your great advice, Dad! Can you please repeat it now that I’m paying attention?
- Fatherhood isn’t for the faint of heart…or the scared of bugs. Thanks for being my big brave Dad!
- You’ll always be someone I look up to Dad—even when I’m taller than you.
Speak from the Heart —
If you do want to say something sincere, Father’s Day is the perfect time to show the appreciation that Dad so deserves to hear:
- Even when I’m not saying it, I’m always thinking it…I’m glad you’re my dad.
- Thanks, Dad, for helping me believe in heroes.
- I can only hope to be the kind of parent you’ve always been: The Best.
Compliment Your Spouse —
Father’s Day isn’t just about parenthood, it’s also about partnership, marriage…and maybe a little bit of romance, too.
- There’s no one I’d rather share the crazy, wild, wonderful ride of parenthood with than you.
- I’m so thankful for the husband you are—and proud of the dad you’ve become.
- Thank you for giving me the family I always dreamed of.
Share a Famous Quote —
Combining a famous quote with a personal note is a wonderful way to show a little extra effort while giving you a starting point for your own idea. Here are some examples:
- “My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person, he believed in me.” ~Jim Valvano That’s exactly how I feel about you, Dad. Thanks!
- Someone once said, “Children close their ears to advice but open their eyes to example.” Thanks for setting a great example, Dad!
- “Dad, your guiding hand on my shoulder will remain with me forever.” ~Author Unknown Thanks for always being there.
