When it comes to parenthood, moms are sometimes deemed to be the superheroes — they receive the best compliments and appreciation for the sacrifices that they do for the family. However, if parenthood is a team, then one member is surely underappreciated — dads. It seems as though the efforts and sacrifices they give for the family aren’t acknowledged enough. This Father’s Day, it’s time for moms to let that great dad know he is doing a great job. Here are 5 simple Father’s day ideas to make that daddy know he’s amazing.
Collaborate a Father’s Day Card With Kids
Showing appreciation for the man of the house is a family effort — you don’t have to do it alone anymore. This Father’s day, express your love and gratitude for your husband by making a Father’s Day card with the kids. Bring on the praise — sometimes, parenting differences can make husband and wife clash and compliments are often forgotten. Show him how proud you are of him as a dad by listing down the little things he does that you’re always thankful for. Ask the kids to write down the things they love about daddy, too. This gift may be simple but the words of assurance and appreciation make it one of the most special Dad’s Day gifts out there.
Prepare a Classic Breakfast in Bed
Don’t just make this Father’s Day Sunday easy, make it more special by starting with a classic breakfast in bed for dad. Sometimes, moms get all too busy with preparing great breakfast for kids that dad’s own share is sometimes forgotten. Jump start your Father’s Day Sunday by preparing breakfast goodies he loves. If he prefers fried chicken and pizza more than pancakes and bacon, go for it. Make it more fun and special by letting the kids join in the preparation.
Give Him Something He Wants But Doesn’t Always Get
Most of the time, the sacrifices of dads are noticed but often unappreciated. Like moms, fathers also commit their time to being effective breadwinners for their families — even if this means setting aside the stuff they want to buy for themselves for the greater needs of the family. Show your padre de Familia how special he is by giving some of the stuff he wants to buy for the longest time. They could be new basketball shoes, a shiny bicycle, or some fresh clothes. It’ll send the message that you know his needs and wants are not overlooked.
Bring Down the Pressure
Fathers face different kinds of “pressure” every day — pressure to become the best husband, the best father, the best provider, the best repairman, the best storyteller! What greater gift can there be than by helping him relax and unwind? During the day dedicated for dads, forget about the deadlines, the chores, the stuff to repair, and the idea that the day needs to be perfect! Instead, treat him to the movies or buy him a gift certificate from a spa. Make Father’s Day a day free from stressful pressures — it’s surely a big treat for the always-busy man of the family.
Spend Some Romantic Time Together
Father’s day isn’t just about celebrating fatherhood — it’s also a time to recognize your husband as a lover and a friend. Prepare something special and romantic for him like a weekend getaway without the kids, or a trip to some of your favorite places. Find a romantic place where you can express your love and admiration for him as a father and a partner. Don’t forget sexy surprises — he’ll surely be looking forward to that.
One can’t truly measure the love of a father and the things he’ll do for his family. Make him feel it’s all worth it by acknowledging him in simple but heartfelt ways. Doing the things suggested above can make your husband feel a million bucks.
