What’s Father’s Day really about? Is it about paying too much for a new set of golf clubs? Is it about making or buying that perfect meal? Is it about making sure you don’t ask him for any “honey-do’s” that day? Or, it is about appreciating those special dads in your life?
Give a Father’s Day Gift He’ll Cherish
While sleeping in and cufflinks are nice, they don’t necessarily express how you truly feel about that special someone. Here’s a really easy way to write a letter of appreciation that they’ll cherish for the rest of their lives.
Step 1: List the top five things that you’re thankful for about them
Step 2: List five special things he does
Sit down and write it in this form:
This Father’s Day I wanted to tell you how thankful I am for you and tell you all the things I love about you.
I am thankful for ___________, ______________________, _____________________, _________________, and __________________.
I appreciate you because _________________, _________________, __________________, ____________________, and __________________.
Happy Father’s Day!
I love you,
Don’t stress out about the perfect card or the perfect setting. (This could be on scratch paper and be just as meaningful). Simply take the time to focus on all of the things you’re grateful for and all of the things you love and tell the fathers in your life.
It just might make this Father’s Day the best ever!
