Father’s Day is one of the several reasons to celebrate in June. Every year I make a point of making it truly special for my husband. The month of June makes it easy for us to not pay attention about it. It’s the start of summer. It’s this time of the year that grads celebrate and party. And then there’s the fact that June is the choice of hundreds of thousands of brides and grooms. So how do I make it special for the father of my children? I make sure that the third Sunday of June is all about him, and nothing else.
Our typical Father’s Day is either a barbecue party or a picnic. Last year was a joint effort when we decided to spend the day at Six Flags America, with the children of course. I’ve been thinking about how to top that, but I just might give him something familiar. It’s true I don’t have a lot of new ideas, that’s why I feel lucky he’s always happy to be “king of the grill”. That said, I’m definitely going to add a surprise twist to our usual BBQ come Sunday.
One thing I never forget to give my husband is a Father’s Day present that’s not a necktie, not that it’s a terrible thing to give. I once bought some ties off Macys.com for my hubby and my dad, and they were quite ecstatic. But of course I can’t give them ties every year. That’s just lazy, plain and simple. If you ask me, it was a risk on my part because I thought ties were so uninspired. So yea, in a way I take risks when I choose gifts. There was one time I ordered some halibut steaks. My husband loved it.
I remember looking for a gift for my dad back in the day. It was difficult starting from scratch, but fun nonetheless. So I kind of like it when shopping sites have their own list of suggestions for Father’s Day. It makes it easier for me to find the right gift. Macy’s gift guide for Father’s Day has a clean and simple layout that’s easy to navigate, that’s why I start and usually end up with Macys.com. Then there’s the fact that as a cardholder I make big savings every time I shop at Macy’s – and even bigger savings every time I use Macy’s coupons.
I admit I get my ideas from the internet more often than not. I start by simply browsing through the offerings of shopping sites – they’re all about Father’s Day in the third week of June! I also read blogs about unique Father’s Day gift ideas and sometimes I stumble upon truly unique gifts, such as halibut steaks. At first I thought it was a crazy idea. My husband clearly thought otherwise because he wanted it to be a yearly thing. And it’s just priceless. To see him happy on Father’s Day. That’s all that matters, right?
Happy Father’s Day to all dads out there! Here’s an awesome Youtube video about you:
