Celebrating Fathers

Father’s Day is just a few weeks away.  If you haven’t thought about how to celebrate the men in your life, or what you can do to show them your appreciation, here are a few out of the box thoughts to get you started!

Gifts:

Personal Pretzels,a photo bookmark (for his book or the book you’re reading together), notepad for dad, don’t just get him another tie-personalize it,  personalized pub glasses, personal photo blocks, cookie tube for dad, pom-pom tie guy (too cute to not include)

Cards:

Tape measure, dogs, ties, footprint poem, paper-airplane cards (great for coupons too)

Food:

Broccoli, Ham and Cheese Omelet, Asian Meatball Subs, Lobster Rolls, Ale-Brined Roasted-Turkey Sandwich, Grilled Fajitas, PB&J Chocolate Bars, Blondies, BBQ cupcakes.  (Need more? Try these 100 ideas)

Celebrations:

-Ice Cream: nothing goes better with a hot June day than ice cream.  You could do the usual sundaes, or you could buy a bunch of little containers (pint size or smaller) of a whole variety and either do a tasting or make sundaes with not-usual flavors.

-Let dad have the day to himself, let him choose where to go, and who to be with.  If the kids want to “take” dad on a special outing, plan it for another day so dad can choose what he wants to do.

-Do a family fun day.  Go to a baseball game, go fishing, go camping, or just hang out as a family at home and watch movies.

Share your ideas too!  Do you have a favorite Father’s Day memory?
