When Mother’s Day rolls around, I’m the guy freaking out about what to get my wife. Come to think of it, the same goes with birthdays, anniversaries and Christmas. So that means every year, my culture tells me that as a husband, I am bound to not only celebrate my wife once, but four times a year, or I’m a failure. That’s a lot of pressure. Thankfully my wife is gracious enough to let me miss a few even though, in my humble estimation, she deserves endless celebration.
So in an attempt to help you mothers out there, and in-so-doing honor my wife (see how this is working) here’s a list of ideas for what to get dad for Father’s Day (approved by other fathers out there):
While the above was written with tongue firmly planted in cheek, with a little tweaking, many of these would make many of us happy.
Also, many of us may be unable to be father’s in the strict sense, but we love adopting and mentoring and interacting with your children. These tips might work well with us as well. Happy Father’s Day!
This year, we challenge you to start a new tradition with your family by capturing moments and memories and sharing them with one another at year’s end.
