Father’s Day Inspiration: Give the Gift of Memories

From the latest tech toy to a new driver for the golf course, there are plenty of options for great gifts for Dad. But to make this Father’s Day extra special, we’re suggesting the gift of time. Clichéd as it may sound, giving Dad a bit of one-on-one time might just be the sweetest gift he receives this year. Here are our ideas for some great activities:

5 19 AM

  • Looking Back: We love the idea of giving Dad a visual reminder of your appreciation for his support on your wedding day, by making a wedding photo album. Pour his favorite cocktail, set out some snacks, and stay in for a night of reminiscing about your wedding celebration.

  • Make a night of it: Take Dad out for a movie date – his choice, of course! Whether it’s the summer’s hottest blockbuster action movie, or the latest sports biopic, he’ll appreciate getting out of the house and having his choice of the movies Mom won’t see (no sappy romance flicks here). Splurge for the extra large popcorn.
  • Revisiting Old Memories: Take a trip down memory lane and surprise Dad with a visit to your favorite place as a kid. Whether it’s tossing a baseball and playing on the swings at the neighborhood park, or visiting the tigers at the zoo, taking the time to remember the special trips you took as a child will let Dad know you appreciate his time – both then and now.

  • A Battle of the Minds: Now that you’re both adults, go head to head in a board game with your old man. Or pull out a classic game you loved as a little girl (we’re thinking Candyland, Chutes and Ladders, or Hungry Hungry Hippos).  He’ll probably still let you win – old habits die hard, after all – but the quality one-on-one time is the real prize here.
  • A Quality Call: Live too far from Dad to do one of these activities? Just pick up the phone and call him. Your time and attention are the best gifts he could get this Father’s Day, and making a dedicated call to catch up on life, current events, sports, or whatever he wants to talk about will bring a smile to his face.

Really want to pull at Dad’s heartstrings this Father’s Day? Here are a few tips for writing a note to dear old Dad.

  • Remember the little things:  Did he stay up all night helping you write that book report in fourth grade? Or teach you how to tie your shoes? Pointing out the little moments in which Dad came to the rescue can lead to a larger message of appreciation.
  • Reflect on Inspiration: Let Dad know exactly how he’s inspired you – perhaps in your career, travel choices, extracurriculars, or even in friend choices. By telling Dad how he’s inspired you, you’re reaffirming all the wonderful things about him.
  • Look Forward: You’re at the point in your life where Dad could soon transition to Grandpa. Let him know how excited you are for this next step, and how you know he’ll be a wonderful Grandpa.

We hope these ideas help you make Father’s Day even better this year. Share your own ideas in the comments!

Holiday Cards for Engaged Couples

Being engaged at the holidays can be loads of fun… but it can also be a bit confusing—like when it comes to signing and addressing your holiday cards. You aren’t married yet… so how should you sign your cards? Tiny Prints, our premium cards and stationery brand has loads of chic options for your 2012 holiday card—and the tips you need to send your best at this time of year.

For your holiday cards…

  • If you’ve already sent out your save the date, “The Future Mr. and Mrs. Sullivan” is a cute option. Or simply, “The Future Mr. and Mrs.” works too!
  • If you want to avoid any kind of formal title and keep things a bit more casual, you can sign just your first names and leave the last name out altogether, like, “Love, Juliette and Robert”

For your return address…

  • The easiest option is to skip your names altogether, and only include your address on the address labels
  • Or, you can create a custom stamp with only your initials, which can be used for correspondence after “I do” too
  • Again, you can include only your first names and then your address

It’s never too early to start shopping for the perfect holiday card, so head over to Tiny Prints and find your favorite design! If you’ve already taken your engagement photos, what better way to share your season’s greetings? We think none.
