Father’s Day is this Sunday, June 19, and while I’m sure some of you have already purchased Dad something incredible, I’m also sure some of you haven’t even given a thought as to what to get dear old Dad. Well stop worrying because I’m here to tell you exactly what to buy him!
Yep, you heard me right.
Don’t spend a damn dime.
No, I’m not a Dad Hater. Not remotely. Give your dad something better than you can afford to buy at a store. Give him a hug. Your love. Your time. Tell him that you love him. Make him a card from scratch like you did when you were little. Spend the day with him. If you don’t get along well, reach out. Find common ground. Make peace.
Because someday Father’s Day will roll around and Dad won’t be there to celebrate it with.
To all those men out there who are not just sperm donors and raise their children to be good citizens, I salute you! Happy Father’s Day!
