Meaningful Gift Ideas for Dad

This year it seems more important than ever to let our loved ones know how much we care in a meaningful way. Here are 5 gifts for Dad to show him how special he is. Happy Father’s Day!

1. Write a handwritten letter to Dad, including favorite memories spent together. Bonus points for also mentioning the qualities you love and admire about him.

2. Spend an outdoor adventure day with Dad. Plan a scenic hike everyone will enjoy followed by a picnic after. Don’t forget to bring your camera/phone to document your day together. Need some camera phone tips? I have ten days worth of tips on the blog. Start here: Tell A Good Story and work your way back through all 10 tips.

3. Camp out with Dad in the backyard for a night. Break out the tent, sleeping bags, and pillows. Be sure to bring popcorn, Dad’s favorite book or movie (to read or watch on a phone or tablet), and chocolate for dessert. 

4. Surprise Dad with a portrait session, featuring Dad and the kids then the whole (immediate) family together. Remember, Dad’s need to be in photos too.

5. Chose a charity close to Dad’s heart and make a donation in his honor.
