Father’s Day is a reminder to everyone about what their fathers have done for them in their lives. Even if Dads weren’t always around they were able to instill values and life lessons into the hearts of their kids. Father’s Day seems over rated but think of how hard your dad works to make things happen at the right moment. There’s a reason why dads are always up in arms, or stressed out and want to relax, and it’s because they spend their whole day serving the kids.
It may not seem that way but Dads just want to let loose and play but are bound, and committed to providing their children a solid quality of life. I remember how much my father loved chocolate chip cookies. He had to hide them from his kids because we would scour the kitchen looking for the goodies. As we got older we learned that dad was stashing the cookies in the top drawer of his dresser, and we devoured them. Dad’s one piece of solace was his cookies that he usually had for himself. Looking back it was silly and fun to snatch Dad’s cookies so one year for father’s day we ordered a commercial case of chocolate chip cookie dough. This box was wrapped cold, and weighed about 25 pounds. That’s lot of cookies but my dad loved opening the father’s day gift, and immediately remembered how we used to take his chocolate chip cookies when we were young. Cookie dough had a sentimental value to my Dad and that gift was a memorable one. If you’re thinking of a good gift for father’s day, try and find one that will help him remember his youth. Don’t get trapped with the normal BBQ hardware, and grilling aprons. Make your Dad feel more like he contributes to the family than the person that pays the bills. Playing board games will spark conversation and help to reflect on the good times over the years. You can also write him a hand written letter telling him how much you love him and look up to him. Dads are just giant teddy bears. A few activities to complement a cake or a gift care for this Father’s Day will also be admired. Here are some engaging events for your dad on Father’s Day.
