Father’s Day is June 19; whether it’s a BBQ, an afternoon fishing or camping, spending time with dad, it's time to celebrate the great father's in our lives. So what do you get dad?
Think about sharing the most valuable thing of all: your time. After the last couple of years, it’ll mean more than ever. If you live close by, a visit will mean the world. If you’re miles away, and don't have video conferencing fatigue, Skype and Zoom are an option, and if your dad is less tech-savvy, there’s always the phone.
No matter where you are, it’s also a good time to send him a greeting card; getting a handwritten message is always meaningful. Get your kids to make their own, to show just how much they love him. And throw in a gift card for gas, a future flight, or tickets to an event you can all enjoy together.
You may be thinking about dad's health as well. Older parents are susceptible to dehydration because their bodies contain less water as they age. You may want to look into a way they can’t fail to drink the water they need. Get them the smart water bottle that makes every sip count on the journey to better health.
So raise a glass (or bottle) to your dad, stepdad, foster dad, or grandpa - and here’s to a Happy Father’s Day!
