Father's Day

Father's Day wishes

A father is a guide, a teacher, and a friend to his child. He is the man who loves his children enough to allow them to make mistakes, so that they can learn a lesson from them. A father is someone who does the right thing rather than the easy thing, and learns to say "No" when it is required. A father is someone who resists the urge to catch you before you fall. Instead he picks you up after you fall, and allows you to try all over again. Yes, there is no doubt about the fact that a dad is indeed a gift from God Himself.

Fathers are unique, and the reason for fun and laughter at home. No matter how old they get, dads retain that boyish and playful streak, which allows them to let the child take a ride on the shopping cart in the mall, or even try a hand at driving as they sit on his lap holding the steering wheel. It is not that he is not scared for you. He is. But he also knows it is important to let you grow up. Fathers are just like mothers. Their love for the children is as unconditional and as subliminal as a mother's. Dads love their children even when they are at their worst. Loving is not an option for them. When he is correcting your mistakes it is not because it irks him; it is because he wants you to be a better human being.

Father's Day is a day for family. It is the day when children living with parents do special things to honour their dads. Children living away try and be with their dad on that day or at least make the day special through phone calls and gifts.

Here are a few ideas for spending the special day with your dad.

1. If he is interested in sports, get ticket for a sports event and go along with him to watch it. It need not be on the same day. Remember, the gesture is more important.


2. If your father plays any game, join him that day for a game. It can be a round of golf, tennis, badminton etc. Sweat it out together and see the bond getting stronger.


3. Boys will be boys. Take your father to an amusement park and see the thrill that he feels. You will be amazed at how much he enjoys it.


4. If you are girl, you can take your father for paintball or bowling. Let the warrior in him find a space, and there is nothing like a little friendly battle of generations to express love.


5. Go Karting is another fun option to spend the day with your dad. Let him forget about the inhibitions of family safety and go wild with speed on the tracks.

If you want to make the day special for your father with a gift here are a few ideas on what you can give him:

1. Make a scrap book with memories penned down and pictures of some of your precious moments of togetherness.


2. Personalised t shirts, coffee mugs, photo frames, accessories with the message "the best dad in the world"


3. Books are anyone's best friends. If you can lay your hands on the paperback edition of a book your father wants to read or loves reading time and again, then nothing like it.

4. Buy him the membership to a gym. Help him keep fit.


5. Book a day at the spa for him. He will love being pampered.


6. Sponsor a "boys day out" of your father along with his friends to any place of their choice.

gift here are a few ideas

There is nothing in the world which is more expressive of love than a handmade gift. Here are a few ideas:

1. Convert any plastic box, like chocolate boxes, into a tool box complete with nuts, bolts and a small screw driver, which he will surely find handy next time your mom calls out to fix a leaking tap.

2. Make a homemade car wash kit with all the supplies in one place. You can use a small cardboard box, cover it with a colourful paper, decorate it with glitters, and put the supplies in it.

3. Make your own atlas tea coasters. Cut small circles from a cardboard. Take an old atlas and cut out the places that your dad has been to or wants to go in the same circular shape and size. Stick them onto the cut out card oard pieces. Your dad will just love them.

4. Take an old cloth hanger. Fix hooks in a row at the lower rung of the hanger. This can be used by your dad to hang ties.

Handmade gift

Celebrate Father's Day in the only way that will please him. Be with him. Spend time with him. Let him know that he is one of the most important people in your life. Here are a few ideas on celebrations:

1. Book a day in a resort, away from the mundane surroundings of the four walls. Join your father along with the entire family, and spend the day doing things together.


2. If you have a family home, call the entire family, including the extended family, for a day over, to be with your dad. Spend the time playing family games, singing the favourite family songs, watching old classics with your dad on TV, cooking his favourite meal, eating together and ending the day with a long drive with the entire family and maybe having a milk shake.

Celebrate Father's Day

What you feel in your heart would be the real wish for your dad. But here are a few ideas on how you could wish him:

1. Dad!
I want to thank you for so many things.
But then the list would be endless.
So I just want to thank you for being my dad.
Happy Father's Day!

2. Dad!
The man I am going to marry can only be a prince in my life.
You will always remain the king.
Happy Father's Day!

3. Dad!
I hope it is not too late,
but I want to thank you for correcting me when you did.
For I am in a lovely place today because of your corrections.
Thank You Dad.
Happy Father's Day!!

Father's Day Ideas

There are several ways to let your father know that he is truly special. Celebrate this year’s father’s day in a unique style. Surprise your dad most affectionately and see the million dollar smile on his face!
  • Start the day with the fragrant surprise

    Let him wake up to the fragrance of flowers…gift him a bunch of beautiful roses. A handmade card if tagged along with a short poem scribbled by you for him in your best ever handwriting would give his day an ideal start. Express your affection, care and concern for him…just as he does for you every other day of the year. Read the poem aloud while you hug him tightly to say that he is the biggest support of your life!

    Start the day with the fragrant surprise

  • Prepare with your own hands his favourite breakfast and lunch

    This would be immensely overwhelming for him. Organise a small leisure outing for him, go to the countryside or to a sea shore or to any other nature-bound serene location. Play his favourite music as you drive for him on this day. Go fishing together, play badminton, perform a song, and play guitar. Do not forget to capture all these memories in your camera.

    Prepare with your own hands his favourite breakfast

    As you reach back home, bake a cake especially for him, bring him his favourite champagne and snacks. Keep yourself at bay from attending phone calls of your friends and fellows. Such distractions spoil the fun. Keep your presence exclusively for him.

    bake a cake

    Keep the later part of the evening reserved for a heartfelt conversation session with him. Take every opportunity to tell him how special is his love, strength and support for you. Narrate to him instances that prove how his mentoring and guidance have helped you evolve into a better human being, and how best you are trying to make him proud of yourself. Share your life’s small secrets with him, update him about all matters concerning your life, something which you could not do all the while he was busy with work. And while he expresses how he feels, shoot a video. This session would surely overwhelm him and work for him as the biggest form of rejuvenation.

    Throwing surprise parties

  • Make Photo Album

    Create a photo album of special moments from the past year with Dad. Show your dad your chow much you love with a digital photo album that you post online or a physical album that you present to him on Father’s Day. Add captions to each picture for added fun. It’s not a bad idea, hence, to let your father know on this finicky occasion of father’s day that he is very close to your heart.
