Fathers Day / March 6, 2019 / Blanche Durham.
Fathers Day is the time when were encouraged to give cards whiskey cigars to our fathers in recognition of their valuable role in our lives. But these days many homes are single-parent families with an absent father maybe seen only occasionally. Step-fathers grandfathers uncles neighbours teachers can all occupy the position of significant male role model and may actually be more supportive and reliable that our real father. Father is often a childs first significant male role model. If he falls short is a disappointment the child may become defensive shut off emotionally in a bid to avoid further hurt and let down determined to show they dont care.
The last thing Dad wants to do on Fathers Day is put something together such as a bike or shed. Unless he wants his joints and muscles to erode even more... Bad cooking. Many Dads have to face unusual and unfamiliar foods concocted in the name of love by their kiddies. Though the hearts in the right place it wouldnt do to make Dad sick on Fathers Day. So just stick to the breakfast-in-bed routine (if you really can cook that is!). Now for the spiel on what TO buy Dad for Fathers Day. If youre after unique Fathers Day gifts listen up because heres something that might be right up his street. [Drum roll]... Fathers Day gift experiences.
Everyone makes a mountain out of Mothers Day and rightly so. But without Dads lets face it we wouldnt exist. Fathers Day falls on 19th June this year so how about using this day to tell your Dad what a man he is? Fathers Day gifts are all part of the equation but year in year out you may make excuses about what you "meant" to get your Dad. But something always gets in the way and suddenly its Fathers Day and you have nothing... not even an excuse. Well NOT THIS YEAR! At least this time you can give your Dad something hell remember. Forever. But first heres some advice on what NOT to get him.
Another fathers day gift which tops the list is the self made card. Nothing beats a card which says that you love him. It is even better if it has been made by you because it shows the effort which you have put in. You can also frame the card if you want in this way it can be appreciated throughout the year. Photographs are always reminding us of all the beautiful memories that we have spent. On this fathers day take out the family album and use all those photographs to make a huge collage of you and your father. You can put together all the baby pictures birthday photos and all those special occasions when you and your father were together.
Yet we indulge ourselves into putting in a futile effort to be emotive and effusive enough to make our way to the bottom of someones heart. Gift is a medium through which we often want to showcase our love and respect for the others. But instead of flaunting our riches and spendthrift nature we should bask in pleasure while gifting the others. When it comes to buying a fathers day gift you should take a pick that suits to his taste. Surely you will find a galaxy of beautiful items in the market but it is you who have to make a choice which one to pick up. My dad is my hero - almost all of us murmur this slogan times and again.
