Dads come in all shapes and sizes, but there’s one thing common in all dads (well, the majority of them, anyway), and that’s their bigger-than-the-world hearts! Happy Father’s Day to all the amazing dads out there. There’s another thing about most dads: Their love for you is like an undercover mission. They keep performing tasks which ensure that you are ultimately loved, you do well, you make no mistakes and you are happy, but it’s all done undercover. As far as dads are concerned, love = top secret, basically!
And it’s this excessive stealth that sometime makes us take their love for granted.
While we need to respect that about fathers in general life, showing some extra care on a day dedicated to our dear fathers is a great way to get started. Therefore, respecting dads the way they are, here’s a list of gifting ideas for five types of dads that I think define most dads. And since you’re obviously slacking off and only just remembered to buy him a gift, here are some gift ideas that are available both online and offline.
Father’s Day was not celebrated in the US, outside Catholic traditions, until the 20th century. As a civic celebration in the US, it was inaugurated in the early 20th century to complement Mother’s Day by celebrating fathers and male parenting.
History and Tradiions:
After Anna Jarvis’ successful promotion of Mother’s Day in Grafton, West Virginia, the first observance of a “Father’s Day” was held on July 5, 1908, in Fairmont, West Virginia, in the Williams Memorial Methodist Episcopal Church South, now known as Central United Methodist Church. Grace Golden Clayton was mourning the loss of her father, when in December 1907, the Monongah Mining Disaster in nearby Monongah killed 361 men, 250 of them fathers, leaving around a thousand fatherless children. Clayton suggested that her pastor Robert Thomas Webb honor all those fathers.
some ideas that you can do to show your love for your father:
2. You can surprise him by gifting a brand new smartphone that might be best suited for him and will be in your budget.
3. You can organise a surprise party inviting his friends and family with the help of your mom.
4. If your father loves wearing watches, you can buy him a fancy watch which he can boast in front of his friends.
5. If you are low on budget you can just buy him fancy shirts and pants and help him with any work he has to do.
Your father may be the person who might have taught you how to tie your shoes, might have given you your first cycle experience, and lots of other things. Make Father’s day all about him and make him feel the best person and show him how much you love and respect him.
