Dads are pretty low maintenance guys, but they can be a little tricky to buy for so this year, instead of getting him a new shirt or tie that every Dad dreads – do something else! You may have to put a little more thought or effort into it, but it will probably end up being a much more fun day than handing him the card and the box (with the tie in it) and staring at the TV for an hour or so before leaving.
Father’s Day Ideas:
- Let him sleep in a little – then surprise him with his favorite breakfast. If he likes to read a certain paper or has a favorite coffee add that to his breakfast tray as well.
- Hire the neighborhood kid to take care of the lawn this week and take Dad to do something DAD likes to do…for instance, if he like baseball – take him to the game and buy him a beer and a hotdog (or whatever it is he likes best).
- Does Dad have a sweet tooth? Make his favorite cake or cookies and bring him his favorite ice cream. Would he have to call the health department over your baking skills? Well, for crying out loud, surely, you can pick up the phone and order the man a proper Caramel Cake.
- What about the Dad that loves to grill? Well, don’t by him another set of tongs – unless he really needs them – buy him some really good quality steaks and all the sides for a really nice meal and then stay for dinner.
Dads sometimes get overlooked because Moms are by far more vocal when you don’t acknowledge something properly, but they need a day geared around them too. The memories you make doing something together will be far better than anything you can pull out of a box. Unless, of course, you are going to pull a winning lottery ticket out of the box and then the memories can come later…
Carmine’s wishes all the Dads out there a very Happy Father’s Day! If you run into any cooling or plumbing problems, give us a call 203-791-8089.
