On Sunday, many families will once again be celebrating Father’s Day Weekend. If you’re cramming to find a good gift for your Dad or your husband, or you want something that will stand out or be different, then we suggest the following Father’s Day presents. These are guaranteed to not only bring a smile to your father’s face, it’s also going to help reduce your carbon footprint.
1) Do errands for your father or husband on Father’s day. Do tasks that he would usually do for the week — such as going to the hardware store or grocery, or cleaning up the back yard, or greening up his garden — and give your Dad the day off. If he still insists on doing it, offer to accompany him and drive him up the places where he’s supposed to go for that week.
2) If you’re Dad gets around in a car, why not offer to bring this to a mechanic for a tune up and maintenance? A well-tuned car is going to perform better. Offer to pay for this service, of course, and also keep it simple for him and have all his car’s records in check (such as the stats and gauge, which your father will most likely not have a previous record of).
3) Treat him to a simple fun outdoors. It could be just a walk in the park, with a pack of beer on hand, or an elaborate picnic with the rest of the family. Make sure, however, that you clean up after your outdoor activities and if you do decide on a picnic, use reusable items and not disposable utensils.
Enjoy Father’s Day this Sunday!
