Family Matters: 5 Ways to Celebrate Dad
Friday, June 15, 2012
1. Quality time with the kids.
A family outing or just dad and the kids may start with breakfast at home or at his favorite diner or coffee shop. (My husband loves having bagels and lox at home as much as dining out at the Modern Diner in
2. An event.
Give a gift-certificate (for two, if it includes you) to his favorite local restaurant or tickets to a sports game or music concert.
3. Re-purposed finds.
Wallets and messenger bags made from old sails and bike tires make a very stylish statement and are a cool re-use of discarded items.Although it may be too late to have the actual gift arrive in time for Father's Day - you can still place an order and wrap up a picture of the cool item in transit.
4. Make a book.
Have your children help create a special keepsake for dad. Every year we make my husband an accordian book filled with pictures and words documenting our sons’ current stage of development, likes and loves.
5. Techy Gadgets.
My husband loves most tech things as do many dads I know. Although my husband may covet the newest iPhone with cool added or improved features, he will keep the phone he got last year. An iTunes gift card of any value though is always handy and appreciated—allows him to buy music, movies or special apps for phone, music player or computer.
