Father's Day is Sunday, June 18th this year. Barbecues are classic to have on Father's Day, but why not spice it up a little bit? As the years go on it can sometimes get tricky to figure out what you can do or get for your father on Father's Day that you haven't done before. Whether you have quite a bit of time and money on your hands to prepare something or not, we've got you covered.

Gift ideas

If you're a mom and have young kids, one of the cutest gifts that any father would love is art with handprints on them. It is something that they can cherish forever.

With this idea, you can get quite creative and even go to places such as ceramic decorating stores located near you where you could make plates or cups with your little one's handprints on them - or anything else that you know your husband would love.

If you enjoy being creative, this could be one of the best ideas yet. Put together a collage of pictures of you and your dad. You can get as creative as you want with this. Scrounge up all of the pictures you can find with you and your dad and put them together in any way you desire. One example of how this could be put together is by putting together a poster board with the pictures, by using the pictures to form the letters 'DAD', or even making a scrapbook.

Even if it is your dad's first year being a dad, these ideas can still be used. Make him feel loved and welcomed into the family by making him personalized gifts such as a hand-written card with a heartfelt message. Anything you do would mean the absolute world to a new dad as you are showing how much you care.


If you don't have a lot of time to prepare a fancy gift, don't worry - gifts aren't what matter.

What matters the most is spending quality time together with your dad. Get your family together - or even just you and your dad - and go out and watch a movie. If you are looking to spend as little money as possible, switch it up and stay at home and watch a movie that both you and your dad love.

Another fun idea to do for Father's Day is to Surprise him with breakfast in the morning.

You can get as creative as you want with this such as creating funny faces with the food, or even making him a fancy breakfast if that is your forte.

At the end of the day, it's not about how much money you spent on your dad, but rather how you spend this day. Make it special in any way that you desire. If you are proud of your dad, show him on this day how proud you are of having him in your life. It is always the little things that matter, and just being there for your dad on this special day could make his day. Show your father that he is the "father of the year" like Michael Strahan has been named this year.
