Father’s Day is Sunday, which gives you just a few more days to put something together to thank him for all those times you shared playing with legos and letting you paint his nails. But if you haven’t gotten him anything yet, don’t feel like rushing to the store and picking out an expensive gift is what you have to do. Dad isn’t in need of something expensive, but of something that counts. Receiving a gift that means something from his family is going to go a long way on this special day.
If you are stumped on your father’s day gift ideas, then here a few options that your dad might just be thrilled about:
Clean/organize the garage
While this does not sound like the most thrilling activity in the world, and you feel that buying something is much easier, you aren’t wrong. However, it is the time spent on the act that matter since this case, and the fact that dad will have a garage that he can be more comfortable in. The garage is an important part of any father’s life, yet it often doesn’t see the same attention as the rest of the house. You can change that this Father’s Day and impress your dad by giving him the gift of a clean and organized space for cars, tools or whatever else he utilizes the garage for.
“Something meaningful is worth more than something expensive.”
Do a “dad” thing
Sometimes there is nothing Dad wants to do more than play a round of golf, maybe drink a slow cup of coffee on the back deck or even watch old black and white westerns. So join him! First thing in the morning, you should walk up to him and just say, “Dad, whatever you want to do today, let’s do it.” There are few things that will make dad as happy as having his family take part in one of his favorite activities.
Consider a membership
There are some gifts that are more than a one-time thing, such as memberships to Netflix or Amazon Prime. While these items cost money, they aren’t too expensive and are spaced out over a year. Specifically, a membership to Amazon prime costs $99, which might seem like a high price tag, but when you consider all the enjoyment Dad can have throughout the year with the subscription, it ‘s worth it. If Dad rents movies or games on a regular basis, then this gift might actually save the family money in the long run.
Cook him dinner
Whether Dad is into steaks on the grill or veggies in a salad, put it together for him this Father’s Day. At the end of the day, Dad just wants to spend time with his family and a meal to complement the situation goes a long way. Prepare your dad’s favorite dish, share stories and dedicate your evening to your pops.
There is no one way to go about Father’s Day. Every dad is different and the other family members probably know him better than he knows himself. You know what he likes and what he doesn’t, so don’t think too hard or break the bank while trying to decide. Trust your instincts and give Dad something he will remember and enjoy. It will mean more to him than a new expensive item.
Happy Father’s Day.
