Do you want to make Father’s Day extra special? Instead of cards, a gift card, or dinner out, how about something remarkable and differenPaula Pugh, author of the book “Celebrating Beginnings and Endings,” has spent years studying and capturing life’s most meaningful moments. Her book describes more than 100 different ways people can connect with family and friends in new ways and create meaningful moments in their lives.
The first thing to do is ask, what does my dad really want? You’re searching for ideas that will lead you to a special way of telling him how much he means to you. You could even ask him yourself.
Pugh book describes ways to turn events or situations into memories that last for lifetimes. One example:
For Father’s Day, one man took his 87-year-old uncle fishing, as a thank you for teaching him how to fish when he was a little boy. His uncle caught his first king salmon, a bright shining silver fish that weighed more than 25 pounds. He still carries the photo of the fish sitting on his lap with him everywhere he goes.
Instead of taking your dad out to dinner, how about cooking a nice meal for him with leftovers he can put in the freezer and eat later.
Or help in the yard or garden. Plant some perennials that will bloom for years and remind your dad of you. And, if you really want to make a lasting impression, plant some trees.
Best wishes on finding that unique moment with your dad for this special holiday honoring dads.
