Tips for Planning the Perfect Father’s Day

by Lynn Wilson, Founder of The CareGiver Partnership

Spending time together is the best gift.
Father’s Day is this Sunday, June 16, and there’s still plenty of time to plan the ideal celebration for Dad. The secret to making it special is to customize it with things he loves.

There is no match for spending quality time together; not even the perfect gift can do that. But when shopping for the hard-to-buy-for dad, make it personal. At The CareGiver Partnership, we offer products that enhance dignity and normalcy, and that can be the ideal gift for the dad who’s not quite as independent as he once was.

Here are some ideas for planning Dad’s big day:
  • The best Father’s Day celebrations are planned around his hobbies. Taking in a baseball game, golfing, or just grilling and relaxing in the back yard can make his day.
  • Both Dad and Mom might appreciate a day off from cooking. Inviting them over for a home-cooked meal of his favorite dishes, or a brunch or dinner served at a restaurant, is a relaxing alternative.
  • For dads who are a little less mobile and have less dexterity, a lightweight, portable folding reacher is ideal for use in any room of the home.
  • A memory book from the grandkids highlighting recent events and achievements is a great gift for grandparents who can’t attend every sporting match or birthday party.
  • For the dad who likes to travel but needs a little help getting in and out of vehicles, the CarCaddie is a portable handle that easily attaches to a door frame.
  • Helping Dad document his legacy for future generations is a gift for the giver as well as the recipient. Legacy tools provide services that help Dad turn his personal and family history into keepsakes.
  • Sending Dad home with a plate of his favorite homemade treats is a great way to remind him all week how much he’s loved.
