5 tips to make dad feel everyday is Father’s Day
MANILA, Philippines – Father’s Day comes only once a year — and it’s one of the rare chances to get a little cheesy with your Dad. Rare chocolates, a bouquet of flowers or a fancy dinner uptown can bring a smile to your mom’s face, but finding the right gift for your dad on his special day can often feel like a test. So instead of stressing over what to buy him, send the one thing guaranteed to make his day: your love.
And here’s where a heartfelt message not only is free, fast and fun, but also a gift he can keep with him forever.
KakaoTalk, one of the leading mobile messaging apps, suggests a few tips on how to make your dad feel like every day is Father’s Day:
1. Eliminate stress
Whether it’s organizing your closet, making your bed, or keeping your weekend curfew, make your dad happy by actively fulfilling his request. Your dad will surely appreciate the responsibility and initiative you show. Send him a photo of all the dishes you washed, his newly shined and waxed car, or your neat and organized room as a postcard of your appreciation.
2. Spend time together
It may seem simple, but just spending quality time together can create indelible life moments. See the newest blockbuster movie, take a road trip out of town, go for a walk alongside the nearest beachfront, or fire up the grill for dad’s favorite barbeque. Plan a Father’s Day event that you and your family will always remember.
3. Pamper him – any way you can
Dads don’t get as much pampering as moms often do, so treat him to a day of massages, grooming and relaxation. Breakfast in bed might be a bit awkward for him, but your dad will surely love a meal at his favorite restaurant. However, if you’re far away from him, sweet message coming from your voice will be just as nourishing to your dad.
4. Express how important he is
Chances are, you have made or bought a Fathers’ Day card at one time or another. This year, dare to be different. Use a wide array of animated stickers when you send your message of gratitude.
5. It’s the thought that counts
The heart of Father’s Day is showing dad how much you care. Gifts and gestures are nice, but nothing matters more to dad than knowing that he’s loved. Wherever you find yourself this Father’s Day, a simple message of “I love you, dad!” will be enough to make his day.
Whether you choose to celebrate the occasion modestly or elaborately, Father’s’ Day is all about bonding with family and showering dad with the love he deserves.
