In 1966, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed a presidential proclamation declaring the third Sunday of June as “Father’s Day”. Looking at the present month in the calendar, Father’s Day is just around the corner. It’s that day when dads get extra appreciation—and a one-day pass to not do his chores.
So, have you made plans yet? Here is a three-pronged plan on how to spend that special day with dear ol’ dad.
On this day, enjoy a little quality time together doing physical activities. Go for a run together, or even spend a day at the shooting range. Either way, the goal is to get dad off the couch and do some fun activities with you.
They say the best way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. That said, treat the old man to some grub. This is a special day, so don’t hold out on the expensive stuff.
Taking him to some of the best gourmet restaurants or coffee shops is a good start. There are a lot of restaurants that hold buffets for the occasion. Better get there early.
If going out isn’t your thing, stay at home and cook a feast for him. Some homemade food with a nice cup of coffee should be more than enough. That can be your gift, too—no coffee-drinking dad will say no to gourmet coffee gift packs.
Before you spend a fortune on the gifts, know that Father’s Day is not about giving your dad the best things money can buy. It’s about spending time with him, appreciating him for all the hard work and sacrifices.
So while you’re out there, why not go for a nice hike, or a walk on the beach? Go to church, if you’re religious. Whatever you do, spend that special time with him.
Father’s Day is coming soon. Start making plans and show your father some love.
