A Day For Dad

Father's Day is June 20th!

Got gifts?

Need ideas?

Read on!

In my opinion, men are the most difficult to shop for, so I've come up

with a solution that's perfect for Father's Day, Dad's birthday or any

special day for the man in your life! It's called...A Day For


    A Day For Dad
  • Plan a day that revolves around all dad's favorites...favorite foods,

    favorite activities, favorite movie & more!
  • When dad opens his Father's Day card (in the morning) have a note

    with a clue about his first activity! Once he figures it out...let the

    fun begin!
  • After he finishes his first activity, present him with clue

  • The day will continue with clues & fun!
  • If your children are old enough, let them each plan an activity or

    cook one of the meals.
  • Younger children will love making little surprises to give!

Take a look at some of our most memorable "Days For Dad"...yes, they all

revolve around his favorite things!

  • Camping!

    My husband loves to camp, so we surprised him with a family campout, and a

    few small camping items for his gifts!
  • Golf

    We surprised him with a round of golf at one of his favorite area courses,

    & we've established it as an annual tradition! It's called "The Bucket

    Tournament", and the winner gets to fill the bucket with his favorite

  • Beer

    For his 40th birthday, we gave him 40 beers, for 40 years! With the help

    of the local liquor store, I selected 40 different beers along with a book

    called "The Beer Lovers Guide".
  • Favorite Food

    My husband loves a good hamburger, so when we first moved to Houston I

    found the restaurant that was supposed to have the best burgers in town.

    This was our dinner stop after the round of golf!
  • Tools

    My husband is not a handyman, but one year he wanted a drill (I still

    don't think he's used it!). Instead of traditional gift wrap, we had him

    follow a "string trail" throughout the house until he arrived at his

    toolbox which we had cleaned out, organized & put the new drill in!

So, think outside of the traditional "gift box" and certainly think beyond

the necktie!

Go make a list of dad's favorites, and soon you'll have a plan for

Father's Day!
