For the Dad with everything
What do you buy the man who wants nothing?
Many of us find ourselves faced with this very
question when Father s Day comes around. Most
fathers tend to be unmaterialistic and when the question of
"What would you like for Father s Day?" is posed to them, the
answer is usually "I don t want anything." It s not that dads
are immune from the joy of receiving a gift but they simply
don t want a fuss made. Although their reasoning is genuine,
it leaves us with the predicament of having to second guess
what they would truly like on their special day.
Father s Day is a day to celebrate and commemorate the
dads, stepfathers, grandfathers, fathers-in-law, uncles,
godfathers, guardians or brothers who have played the role
of father figure in your life. Nobody knows your dad they way
you do so have a really good think about what makes him
happy and what he would like.
You may feel that buying a card or the latest useless gadget
is not good enough for your father and you d rather look for
something special. Whether it s a gift or an activity, let your
Dad know how much you love him.
Some dads enjoy going out for a meal on Father s Day so
make a reservation at his favourite restaurant as early as
possible. Father s Day is a particularly busy day for people
dining out so don t leave organising this to the last minute.
What is your father s favourite hobby? Perhaps updating his
fishing rod or golf clubs could be a good idea. That way you ll
know he ll get good use out of his gift and it ll also give him a
good excuse to try out his new gear on the river or golf
If your Dad enjoys going to see a show, check the latest
theatre listings for upcoming performances that he may like
to see. If your dad enjoys a challenge, then activities such as
paintballing or go-karting could be the best way to spend the
afternoon. You could also go somewhere that gets the entire
family involved. A game of miniature golf or a trip to the
movies will ensure that everyone spends time with Dad on his
If your Dad enjoys looking good, then an extra addition to his
wardrobe would be warmly accepted. With spring on its way, a
new piece of clothing from the latest offerings in the shops
would be an ideal choice to make. Whether it s a new shirt,
jacket or pair of slacks, remember to ask your mother for
your father s correct measurements first!
No matter what you get your Dad, make sure to spend some
quality time with him on Father s Day. That s the one thing
he ll always want.
You can rely on Dad
Unlike Mum he may not always have
little tidbits of advice, but you
know when it comes down to it,
dad can always be relied on to come
through for you when it counts.
Okay so he takes a little more time than
most to realise that when wiring up the
bedroom light switch it s best to turn off
the power mains and cooking a three
course meal doesn t constitute the
continual use of a frying pan.
But these minor inadequacies aside,
there is something just a little bit special
about good old Dad.
From teaching you how to ride a bike
without trainer wheels to learning how
to drive your first car, Dad is the guy in
the background always ready to lend a
And it doesn t stop when you leave
home. From mowing your lawns while
you are on holiday to lending a hand
building a fence, Dad is one of the most
reliable people you are ever likely to
When your car needs a warrant of
fitness and something s not quite right
or you need an electric drill to hang your
curtains, but aren t quite so quick to
return it - there is never a cross word to
Dad s the fun one, not the serious no-
nonsense rules are there to be followed
one. He s the one who bounces you in his
lap while he watches the six o clock news
after a long day at work.
He s the one who settles you into a
bubble bath and reads you a bedtime
story at night after Mum s had enough
of the kids. He s the one with endless
amounts of patience, who is never left
looking frazzled, just allowing
everything to ride over his head, whilst
stepping over a baby diaper and the
contents of the youngest child s
bedroom scattered across the living
Dad s the one who works hard all day, so
you can have that new PSP you ve been
harping on about for months and the
camping holiday at Christmas, which
doesn t just magically happen. Dad has
spent weeks getting everything
organised to ensure your holiday is
nothing short of perfect. And why does
he do all this? Because he loves you.
So take the opportunity this Father s
Day to show Dad how much he is
A father carries pictures where his money
used to be.
