Father's Day in Revere
There are few things better than taking some time to honor and thank the people in our lives who have taught us, shaped us, and been there for us throughout our lives. In June, we can take some time to celebrate men who fit that description, our fathers (or other father figures in our life) on Father’s Day which is June 17th this year. Today, the Rumney Flats Blog is sharing some ideas with members of our apartment community about how to celebrate the holiday here in Revere, MA — or wherever your father may be!
While getting an appliance or tool is probably not the best gift idea for women in your life, for the fathers (or other men) in your life, it can be a highly appreciated gesture. Before you get it though, do some research. Check into the brand of tools he likes, find out what he already has and what he might need. Some sleuthing may be in order! If tools are completely out of your realm of experience, get the advice of a trusted friend about what to get.
Father’s Day Talent Show
This is perfect if you happen to have a big, boisterous family. Have everyone come up with their own unique performance to honor dad. It can be anything from reading an original poem written for him, showcasing a skill he taught you, or even sharing a few dad jokes.
A gift that harkens back to your childhood or even your father’s younger years can be a hit. Was there a particular hobby you shared? Choose something that reminds you (and him) of that time spent together. Did you share a love of collecting baseball cards with your Dad? Get one to add to his collection. Did you go hunting or camping together? Plan a trip, just like old times. If you’re going to go with a coffee mug, instead of “World’s Greatest Dad” have one made featuring a favorite photo of the two of you and be sure to include his favorite coffee blend.
Gift of Time
Spending time together may be the best gift you could give to your Dad. Get tickets to a sporting event, a theatre production, or a concert you know your Dad would enjoy — throw in dinner, and you’ve got the recipe for a meaningful gift. If you are not able to spend time together physically, send a letter with your gift or in a card expressing appreciation for all your father has done for you and what he means to you. Be specific, recount memories and what they taught you. If writing isn’t your thing, make a phone call and spend some time connecting with your father. He’s sure to be pleased.
What is your favorite Father’s Day gift you have given your dad? Let us know in the comments. Thanks for reading! We hope that you have a great month here in Revere, Massachusetts!
