Father's Day is about appreciating the man
Every year the day rolls around and takes us by surprise. Caught off guard and empty handed we twist our brains in knots trying to figure out what to do for the guy that has it all. What do you get a man that loves the outdoors and seems to have every gadget, contraption, or gizmo related to the outdoors?
Resorting to the old standby of the Gift card for the local outdoor store is certainly not out of the question. This gives Dad the freedom to pick out what he wants. However, it is difficult to be satisfied giving him a card and a piece of plastic.
Should you get him a new gun case? Or maybe one of those new style swimbaits that just came out? Questions and ideas start to flood your mind.
It goes without saying that father's day should be every day, but too often this seems to get lost and we need to be reminded every now and again.
Looking back at what my father has done for me in my life, I see all the support, encouragement, and knowledge he has given to me. How do I repay this with one gift?
Father's Day isn't about gifts, cards, or special dinners. This day is about the man himself. Dad just needs a small reminder that he is an important part of your life and who you are today. I guess when it comes down to what to get for Dad, it's easy. Get him that gun case, get him that new bait, or get him that Gift card. Most importantly, though, take the time out of your day to show dad what he means to you. Give him a call. Or, better yet, show up on the doorstep with an open mind, the keys to the car and go for a long drive to nowhere or anywhere.
Father's Day is about appreciating the man that you know and love. Give him a firm handshake or a bear hug and thank him for being the man that he is. For without him, you wouldn't be the person you are today.
