Check out a few of these last-minute ideas that don’t cost a lot—and don’t feel last-minute!
Organize His Sock Drawer
Helping Dad stay organized is a great idea—and it’s fun for kids of all ages who can help sort by color or size. And don’t stop there! Organize his shoes and t-shirts too. It’s not a big deal, but it’s a beautiful gesture to simplify his life.
Family Movie Nights are always fun, but this time it’s Dad’s turn to choose the flick. Grab his favorite movie snacks (I love Junior Mints!) and get the popcorn ready.
Every Dad loves cookies and nothing is tastier than a warm cookie straight from the oven. Looking for inspiration? Try this recipe. It’s guaranteed to please.
Listen to Dad’s Story
Gather everyone around and give Dad the opportunity to answer questions about his childhood, school memories and more. He’ll appreciate the interest, and it’s a great opportunity to share a little family history with the family.
Everyone loves a clean car. But life (and kids!) can take a toll on our vehicles. Surprise Dad with a thorough cleaning—inside and out! And then hop in and head to the nearest ice cream shop. Everyone wins!
