Give Dad His Due

This Sunday, it’s time to give your dad his due.  He’s raised you, supported you, and helped you through your life, and now it’s time to thank him.  It’s also a day to show appreciation for brothers, uncles, grandfathers, and husbands who are fathers.  So how will you show those special dads in your life how much they’re appreciated this year?  We’ve got some thoughts.

Many men love sports.  If your dad is a fan of one of your local sports team, buy him season tickets.  If you really want to splurge, get him box seats.  Of course, you might want to get two tickets so he can take your mom (if she likes sports), one of his friends, or you!  Jerseys, hats, and other team memorabilia are other options.  If Dad plays sports, get him some new gear.

Another great gift idea is a new electronic gizmo.  If your dad works out, get him an iPod so he can listen to his favorite music while he exercises.  If Dad loves to read, he might like a Kindle or other ebook reader.  If you really want to get him something trendy and cool, go with the iPad or iPhone.  If your dad doesn’t have a blu-ray player yet, now’s the perfect time to get him one.

There are a number of websites and stores that allow you to customize things for your dad.  You can create a custom t-shirt, have his name embroidered on a nice polo shirt, and more.  These customized items take traditional, somewhat boring gifts and put a neat, personalized touch on them.

Do you know your father’s family history?  A unique, personal gift for him could involve doing some research and created a detailed family tree for your dad.  You can also research the family crest and see if you can purchase a nice piece of artwork featuring it.  Kids could even help draw a family tree for their Dad.

Of course, if you’re an artist, you can create a wonderful piece of art for your father.  A recreation of the family crest is just one idea.  You can paint his portrait, draw the house you grew up in, or create a piece of art that goes with one of his hobbies.  The possibilities are endless.

While flowers are usually sent on Mother’s Day, some fathers do enjoy a nice arrangement, plant, or gift basket.  Let us handle all your Father’s Day Flowers in McLean, VA.
