Since we will be celebrating Father's Day this coming weekend, let me give you some of the best ways to make your dad feel like he’s the “King of the Day”.


Basically, you don’t need a ton of cash for this. No need for fancy gifts or extravagant celebrations. Remember, it's always the thought that counts, especially for these folks who are not so keen on receiving material gifts (like my dad, lol).


Okay, here’s your quick guide:


Help him enjoy the day


Just for Father’s Day, please, stop badgering him over something. Let him relax, help him free his mind from any stress and pressure, let him enjoy the day by treating him like a king! Got you some ideas:


Clean his car:

Prepare his breakfast (much better if you make him breakfast in bed):

Bring him newspaper or magazines to read:

Or, make him his favorite coffee!


The point is, you have to make him feel special on this special day. You can also have conversations with him while he’s finishing his cup of tea. Talk about cars or girls. Ask his opinion about something, or ask for his wisdom.



Plan a celebration the entire family will enjoy


You know what’s best about dads? They’re fine as long as the family is fine. So, make Father’s Day a family day!


My tips: Have picnics in Tagaytay and share stories, attend sports events (in case your dad is an avid sports fan), go to a local park and spend quality time together, or go to the nearest beach resort like what my family usually do during special days.



Express your feelings through a letter


I know, I know. Not all of us can afford to sit down and write sweet letters. But hey, there’s no harm in doing it, right? And besides, your dad will feel really special and loved when he receives a letter from you. That is something he will treasure for the rest of his life.

So, take a few minutes and think what your father really means to you. Tell him how much you love him, how much your mom loves him, how special he is. But if you really can’t write a heart melting letter, you can just get a poem from somewhere, or buy him a card.



Give him something special


How do you think your father will feel if you give him passes to his favorite basketball game?


I'd like to see my dad happy on Father’s Day so I’m giving him something that can make him a smile. And you can do that, too! Buy him a pair of pants or shoes, give him a cake, draw or paint a portrait of him (if you’re the artistic kind), or treat his car to a tune-up.



Like I said, you don’t have to spend a lot of cash on extravagant gifts. Your love, your time, and your attention are enough to make him feel extraordinary this Father’s Day.


How about you? What’s your surprise for your dad? I’d love to hear them! Share your thoughts on the comment box below!
