As fathers day approaches we get more excited to do things that would make our fathers smile. The roles our fathers play in our lives cannot be expressed in words. “I have a hero and I call him dad.” This is one of the fathers day quotes we can relate to the most. Our fathers are truly our heroes. Fathers play different roles in every child’s life, there are many fathers day quotes expressing this but this fathers day quote is my absolute favorite, “Dad, sons first hero and daughters first love.”
We need to show our love and how grateful we are to our fathers; here are some sweet ways of doing so:
1) Recreate a few old pictures and memories with him
Everyone has experiences with their dad they can never forget. Some hilarious incident or something that moved you both to tears. It could be the moment when you had a very serious conversation with him that brought you both so much closer. Or a moment when he had advised you about a phase in your life. Anything that’s of great significance. Recreate that experience. Bring back the beautiful memories. Let them flood around you. It’s sure to make your dad feel amazing.
2) Surprise him with a picnic
Today, pretend like you don’t even know its father’s day tomorrow. Be oblivious but not so much that it looks dramatic. Decide on a place where you and your family can take your dad for a picnic. Book a resort where you can spend your time lazily. Or plan a hike. Plan something that is your dad’s idea of fun. Since its Sunday tomorrow, you don’t have to hijack him from work. But wake him up and ask him to get ready and come with you. Drive him to the picnic spot and surprise him. He will love it!
3) Put up frames with fathers day quotes on his room
Frame pictures of his childhood. Or, frame your childhood pictures with him. You can also display pictures you clicked with him of every year since you were born. Frame beautiful fathers day quotes or messages saying how much you love him. Hang all of these up in his bedroom before he wakes up. He’ll be shell-shocked when he opens his eyes in the morning. And maybe, a little teary-eyed.
4) Write a heartfelt letter
You may have trouble expressing yourself in person or if you don’t live at home, write a letter for him. Pour out your feelings for him. We don’t tell him often how much we love him. This is the time. Tell him you value him. Tell him why he matters. Tell him why you are so lucky to have him. He’ll absolutely love it. He’ll keep your letter safe forever.
5) Get him a personalized gift
Personalized gifts can be a delight. They make one feel special. You put efforts and thought into it and who wouldn’t like that? Gift him an over sized beer mug with some writing over it or a coffee mug with a picture of you and him. Or you can have a personalized pillow, a tee-shirt, anything that he’d love. It’ll work like magic!
6) Bake him a cute fathers day cake
This is one of the cutest gestures. Bake him a special cake…maybe a superman themed cake, or a cake that says “I love you, Dad”. You can also bake little cupcakes with a father’s day theme. They are adorable and easy to make. He’ll love the efforts you are putting into making his day special. Often, the little gestures are all we need to make a bond more special.
7) Make him a gift hamper
I am sure you have a list of things that your dad loves. Present him a gift hamper. Gather all the things…he’ll love it. You can buy his favorite wine, a tie, a shirt, stationary if he likes, cuff links, a book, anything that he loves. Honestly, more than the things, he’ll love the fact that you know what he likes and what he doesn’t. And at night, you’ll go to bed satisfied with how you celebrated your dad’s day.
8) Make him his favorite dishes
Well we all know a way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, Treat him with his favorite dishes starting from his breakfast to his dinner. It’s okay to be in the kitchen all day. And, it will turn out to be a fun day. Make him his favorite dessert..decorate the table for him. Lay out all the dishes and watch his surprised expressions!
