Handmade Card

Father’s Day is this weekend, (Is it really that time of year already?) and we want to make sure all of our adoptive fathers and birth fathers know that they are appreciated.

To help you celebrate the fathers, birth fathers, grandfathers and any other father figure in your life we’ve compiled a list of ways to show him how much you care. Whether you’ve got little children, big children, or grown up children, we’ve got plenty of ideas for you.

For Fathers and Grandfathers:

  • Buy dad a fun t-shirt like this one, to display ever-so proudly
  • Have a Dad photo shoot and create a photo display
  • Handmade crafts are fun for kids and dads love them!
  • Or you can opt for a personalized gift
  • Spend a little more time with him and go out to dinner together
  • Or let him enjoy some “me” time and send him golfing (or another activity he enjoys)

For Birth Fathers:

  • Send him a handmade card
  • If you’re in a semi-open adoption, send him an extra special Father’s Day letter and photos of your child.
  • If you’re in an open adoption and you live close enough, enjoy a nice meal together or even just an ice cream cone.
  • If you’re in an open adoption and live far apart, schedule a Skype or Facetime call just to say hi and let him know you’re thinking about him.

If none of these appeal to you, or you’re short on time, just remember that the best gift you can get for dad is to spend time with him and tell him you love him.

Happy Father’s Day!
