Wondering what to do for Father's Day? If you think your Dad could do with a sense of humour think again. From the time you and your siblings popped onto the scene, he's smiled his way through sleepless nights, tantrums, toilet mishaps, chicken pox, school reports, credit card statements, and the ups and downs of your relationships. And how about the times when he thought you'd finally left home, only to have you and your boxes of stuff back again...if he didn't laugh, he'd cry.
And then of course is Father's Day. That awesome Sunday that comes in September, when we surprise Dad with slippers or a book about the top golf resorts of the world. The irony is hilarious. He'd love to relax in his slippers but he's already being dragged out to breakfast (where he gets to foot the bill). And let's face it, the Ritz-Carlton Grand Cayman Golf Resort - yeah right! He's still paying for the second family wagon.
Imagine the shock if your Dad said to you, "Hey my lovely daughter, for Father's Day this year can I have a new set of Callaway golf clubs?". Of course, no intelligent Dad would ask this as he knows it will ultimately backfire on him. But think about the times when Dad has managed to provide you with your requests and the happiness he actually feels in doing that - it's genuine and it's love. We should be so grateful for it.
So this Father's Day, put a lot more love than ever into what you do for Dad. We've got some fantastic ideas for you at Gift Saint. Ways to make Dad feel a little more appreciated than socks and slippers.
