The perfect gift for Father's Day

May 17, 2018

 

If you're just coming out of Mother's Day feeling disappointed by the perfunctory gift you drummed up, and are already dreading the routine of Father's Day, maybe it's time to try something different.

 

There is a wide range of gifts that are more meaningful and much longer lasting than a meal and flowers. Consider the following:

  • Organizing and scanning the photos of your father's side of the family

  • Publishing a book of these photos

  • Gathering stories about that side of the family

  • Creating a memory book of your father's career

  • Creating a book to honor someone your father cared about, like his parents or another special relative

The best thing is, none of these are hard to do -- they just require time and advance planning.

 

Need extra motivation? Just think of how happy you will be once these photos are scanned and you don't have to worry about the originals being damaged or lost. It's also easy to imagine the pleasure your father will have knowing you took the time to create something that honors him and his past. And if that's not enough, whatever it is you create will provide a wonderful tool to remember your father and share his story once he is gone.

 

Pro tip: When you sit with your father to go over old photos or to open his gift, use the record function on your smart phone (or other recording device) to capture the conversation. This is when the best stories come out!

 

And if you're thinking whether you should do this for your mom too -- of course! These gifts work wonderfully for any important holiday, birthday, anniversary, etc.
