It takes a lot to be a dad. Traditionally, fathers have had the image of being strict and
veracious. They are the backbone of our family and make tireless efforts to keep things
going strong for everyone in the family. Fathers are always guiding us to follow the right
paths in life, pushing us towards achieving our dreams, lifting us up when things get difficult,
fighting all odds with us, encouraging and celebrating all our achievements. To celebrate this
special bond, we have Father's Day to express our love and gratitude towards our beloved
Origin of Father’s Day
No one knows about the exact origin of this day however, it is being said that the first
Father's Day celebration was held in Spokane, Washington, by Sanora Smart Dodd. It was
the year 1910.
The Father-child Bond
Fathers have always tried to instill strong character, discipline and chivalry in their children
leading them by example. In the earlier times, fathers’ sense of duty prevailed over
expressing their love towards kids. With the millennial generation, things have changed and
most of the fathers have started expressing their love and appreciation for their kids’
achievements openly. While girls look up to their fathers as heroes, older boys find a good
friend-cum- advisor in their dads.
Cherish the Day
Take a pause and think about the different ideas that can make this day memorable for you
and your father. Appreciation, no matter how small it is, happens to be the most beautiful
gift. We can appreciate the efforts of our fathers by making a hand-made card, or writing a
thank you letter to him. We can pen down every quality we appreciate in our father and
make his day by sharing our feelings and gratification.
How to make it a memorable one
With so many different ideas, it sometimes gets difficult to select what all to do. But
then, every father is an individual with different likes and dislikes. We’d suggest you
to choose the celebration idea that your father would like. Here are some ideas –
plan a surprise party or go to a road trip; take a day off from your office and plan a
vacation to your father's favorite holiday destination; take him out shopping or
order his gifts online. If you want it within a budget, organize a party with your
family at your home keeping your dad’s favourite foods in mind.
On this day, ask your father to narrate good, memorable stories or learnings from
their life. These golden memories will stay with you throughout your lives.
Gifts for Father’s Day
When it comes to gifting, it feels like having too many fishes in the pond. So many options
and yet so much to ponder on. Nonetheless, if you want to stick with one idea, choosing a
gift would not be much hectic. Think something different from ties, watches or wallets this
time and keep in mind the likings of your father. Although anything gifted by you will be
extremely close to his heart yet any handmade stuff will be alluring. If your father loves
cooking which is least common (no offence!), go for a culinary book or if he is into
technology, a good gadget would be a good option.
Now go and plan some happy moments for your Dad! Cheers
