Father’s Day Gifts from the Heart

7200927_STraditional dad’s day gifts such as ties and shirts get old, so how about making sure Father’s Day is celebrated in style with a gift the dad or dads in your life will treasure?

Here are a few ideas to make that special day memorable for a father.

Give a memory. Create a special experience for dad. How about a surprise family picnic with all of his favorite foods? Make sure all he has to do is hop in the car and you can head to a favorite park. A trip to the zoo or a favorite museum such as a science museum would also be fun. Be sure to take plenty of photos so you can remind him of the day long afterwards.

Give photos. Does dad have a current photo of the family in his office? If not, start taking photos and choose the best to frame. Digital photo frames work if you want to share more than one shot.

Go handmade. Handmade cards, drawings or simple items for a desk have extra meaning if made by your children. Covering a can to make a pencil holder or a clay creature as a paperweight can be fun for the kids to make and fun for dad to receive.
