Even though your dad may seem like a superhero, he still needs to eat. So skip the drugstore socks and visit your local farmers’ market where you can stock up on exactly what you need to whip up his favorite meal. It’s a great way to show him how much you love him, this idea also helps support local farms and business.
Summer is a great time to rock out at a concert or grab veggie dogs at a ball game, so bring dad to one of the many events that are happening around town. Although you may be just a tad too late to catch Pink Floyd in concert, there are dozens of incredible musicians and ensembles getting ready to tour as the months warm up. Do a bit of research (read: iTunes stalk), and find an artist your dad would truly love to see — or if you’re not such a sleuth, just get pumped up for some brewskis and burgers at the field!
It’s likely that you and your dad work a 9-5 (or longer) job in the city, so get away from all that urban sprawl and spend a day in the great outdoors. Tis the season to be sucking up the fresh air and sunshine, so if your dad enjoys fishing, then head out to the lake or hit the pier. And if the idea of scaling a fishes gives you the willies, take a more leisurely approach with a nature hike or a picnic under the trees.
This one is an oldie but goodie – and for good reason. Not only is it great for the environment, but the tree can serve as a warm reminder of your unconditional love. The perfect gift for the man who says he has “everything.”
Give dad a break from reality by conjuring up a coupon book that will take care of all the less-than-desirable daily chores. Whether its mowing the lawn, washing the car, cleaning the garage, or taking out the trash – this booklet is a great way to give dad a chance to do something much more fun.
Digital technology has made it easy for just about anyone to become a creative filmmaker . So grab your camera — or even your smart phone — and make a video of all the family and your dad’s favorite friends talking about their favorite things to do with dad, and what they love most about him. This is sure to become a treasure trove of memories and laughs.
