How To Make Dad Feel Special This Father’s Day

How To Make Dad Feel Special This Father's Day

I know I’ve said it before, but my husband is truly one of the most amazing fathers I know. Not only does he work hard to provide for our family, but he also makes it a point to spend time with our family when he’s home. Each evening he takes the time to hang out with each of the kids, and even feeds the baby her last bottle of the day so he gets time alone with her. Did I mention that he’s also an amazing cook? Yes I know, I’m a lucky gal. Here’s a few photos of my awesome husband and amazing father of my babies.

Fathers DayCan you tell he fell in love instantly?

I’m sure many of us could share some great stories about our own fathers or husbands. With Father’s Day just around the corner, I wanted to share some ways you can make dad feel special on his day.

How To Make Dad Feel Special This Father’s Day

Serve him breakfast in bed

There’s no better way to get dad’s day started. Get your children involved by allowing them to help you make the breakfast and/or delivering it to dad. Serve him his favorite breakfast and drink. You should also use your best dinnerware. You may think that men don’t notice small details like these, but trust me, they do.

Treat him to his favorite activity

Does your dad enjoy fishing? Set up a time for him to go fishing and provide him with all the things he needs (bait, fish line, etc.). Does he prefer watching a baseball game? Treat him to tickets to his favorite local team. If game tickets is not an option, find an inexpensive alternative. Instead of tickets, give him some quiet time along with his favorite snacks so he can enjoy a baseball game on TV. It truly is the thought that counts.

Make him a gift basket

This is a great way to involve your kids. Make dad a gift basket of his favorite things. It can include his favorite candy, snacks, drinks, movies, CDs and even gift cards to some of his favorite stores. Let the kids pick out something they can add to the basket and include personal notes from each member of the family. Again, it doesn’t have to cost a lot of money to make dad smile and feel special.

Thank him

Just like moms, dads work hard and love their kids unconditionally. However, it’s very easy to forget that dads also need to hear that they are appreciated. Write him a thank you letter and include all of the kids. Make it extra special by having each member of the family read their portion out loud to dad. If you can’t do anything else this Father’s Day, make sure you at least say thanks.

Now is your turn to share some of your awesome photos with dad. To make this Father’s Day extra special Oral-B at Target is hosting the Power Dad’s Smile Everyday Sweepstakes with over $1,000 in prizes starting June 2! You could win the Father’s Day Power Bundle which includes the Oral-B Black ProfessionalCare 1000 Rechargeable Toothbrush, the Braun Series 7 760 shaver and a $250 Target GiftCard! How awesome is that?!

All you need to do to enter, is share a photo of you and your Dad on Twitter or Instagram using #oralbsweeps between June 2 and June 15. That’s it! It’s super easy so go share now!

How will you make dad feel special this Father’s Day? I would love to hear from you!

I have a father sized hole in my life that is filled by God. So perhaps Father's Day is about my Heavenly Father. Also, my husband is a wonderful father to our baby. He's blossomed as a person since our son was born. Nothing is more touching than seeing someone change their mind about themselves. This week, he's insisted that my daughter (his stepdaughter) call him dad... and she was giggly about it. He is probably the larger influence in her life over her bio father. Heck, I was adopted, so I never put barriers upon people of who I could or couldn't embrace. =) Blessings to you, Jesenia~

I love these ideas. Especially telling him thank you. I know I don't say it nearly as much as I should. We plan on making him a special father's day card and letting him play on his football game all day.

He is such an attentive father to his children. I agree that besides the other things, just a simple thank you is something we don't say often enough.
