Shop Early for Father’s Day and Access Great Savings

By: Brittany Engelmann-- 2016-05-31 6:00 am --

Father’s Day is on June 19th and provides an opportunity for children and partners to express their gratitude for their loving and dedicated fathers. Father’s Day can be traced back to 1909, when a woman by the name of Sonora Smart Dodd was listening to a sermon about Mother’s Day. She decided she wanted to create a day dedicated to the fathers of the world, and so she petitioned for the holiday to be recognized in her city. It has since evolved into a nationally recognized day, with children across the U.S. eager to express their gratitude and fondness to the men who raised them.

Make This Father’s Day Special

Father’s Day is a time to recognize fathers for their incredible contribution to their families, and there are a lot of ways you can make this day special.

  1. Oftentimes, people go so far out of their way to make holidays extraordinary, they forget to just relax and enjoy each other’s company. This year, do away with the gallant plans and spectacular gestures, and opt for a simple and relaxing day in the company of one another.
  2. Focus on dad. Remember, this day is about him, so plan activities you’re sure he’ll enjoy. Pick his favorite foods to make him breakfast in bed, plan his favorite activities for a day of fun in the sun, and most importantly, let him lead the day, rather than creating a rigid plan based upon your own expectations.
  3. Express your appreciation. More precious than any gift is knowing your children love, appreciate, and respect you. Focus on praising your father and letting him know just how much he means to your family.

Memorable Gifts for Dear Ol’ Dad

Most dads are more concerned with the sentiment than the price tag. Use this day as an opportunity to express how much dad means to you. For families with young children, arts and crafts are a great way to create custom and unique gifts that dad will cherish forever. Give yourself a head start by purchasing everything you need early. Father’s Day gifts often increase in price around the week of Father’s Day, so you can save money by stocking up in advance.

Here are some thoughtful gift ideas that dad is sure to love.

  1. Scrapbooks: Gather your art supplies, family photos, and glitter glue, and spend the afternoon slapping together a memorable scrapbook of all your favorite get-togethers.
  2. Handmade cards: Children love making cards, and a handmade card means a lot more to dad than a store bought greeting card.
  3. Homemade candles: Candles are easy and fun to make, and they provide a great learning experience for children. Buy some wax, dyes, wicks, and candle molds, and have fun whipping up some colorful custom candles, complete with dad’s favorite scent.

No matter what you give your father for Father’s Day, as long as it’s from the heart, he’s sure to appreciate it. For children, making homemade crafts is thoughtful and memorable, and shows dad just how much he means. Search an array of bulk craft supplies today, and make dad a gift he won’t soon forget.
