June 21: Father’s Day, may look different this year but the message is the same, we love and want to celebrate our dads.
So when it comes to a gift for your dad, think about sharing the most valuable thing of all: your time. If you live close by, visit if it’s safe to do so. If you’re miles away, you may not be able to jump on a plane right now. But there are options such as Skype and Zoom, and if your dad is less tech-savvy, there’s always the phone.
No matter where you are, it’s also a good time to send him a greeting card; getting a handwritten message is always meaningful. Get your kids to make their own, to show just how much they love him. And throw in a gift card for gas, a future flight, or tickets to an event you can all enjoy together in the future.
You may be thinking about dad's health this year more than ever. Older parents are susceptible to dehydration because their bodies contain less water as they age. You may want to look into a way they can’t fail to drink the water they need. Get them the smart water bottle that makes every sip count on the journey to better health.
So raise a glass (or bottle) to your dad, stepdad, foster dad, or grandpa - and here’s to a Happy Father’s Day!
