This Sunday is Father’s Day and what better excuse do you need to celebrate the men in your life? Most men are a little bit easier to shop for than some women you may know. Men like new toys, whether it is has to do with grilling, electronics, camping…whatever their niche hobby is, they want the latest and greatest in that very thing.
Men are like big kids when it comes to new gadgets and gizmos and cars, planes, trains and boats. Nobody in my life is getting a new one of any those though! Luckily, they will take some cake and some of my time just as happily as a new car!
Life flies by and you never know when circumstances will change from one day to the next so if it is at all possible to spend time with your loved one doing an activity that they enjoy doing, I highly suggest that instead of a gift, but in reality that is not always possible.
Maybe your parent is aging and what they really need is a weekend with you taking care of them. Clean up their yard, cook them some nice meals and freeze some portions for them for later. We live in a highly material world and while I am in complete agreement that material things are awesome and so fun to have, they don’t replace actions and words in letting someone know how much we appreciate and love them.
If they are fanatic about a certain sports team, go ahead and get them tickets for a game. If they like to play golf and you play too, take them out for the day. You can also spend the weekend being Mr. Fix-It for them, and if you run into trouble with plumbing problems or their air conditioner isn’t working properly, give us a call. Ailing parents do not always spend money on repairs that are needed, but they sure will appreciate you doing it for them.
Whatever route you decide to go this Father’s Day, make it a special one for the man or men in your life. It may just turn out to be a great memory for you as well. As always, Carmine’s is here for all of your plumbing and HVAC needs. Give us a call today at 203-791-8089.
