Life’s many hiccups and curves may have prevented you from getting your dad an expensive Father’s Day Gift. Not to worry. Here are a few low cost, high reward gift solutions.
- Reconnect: Offer to spend a day doing what dad enjoys. A Dodger’s game, bowling, bird watching, tinkering around the basement, hitting the golf course, it’s all good.
- Help your papi around the yard, or garage. Clean those gutters and touch-up the trim in the kitchen, you know, spend some time with him while lightening his load.
- Cook the old man a healthy meal. Doesn’t need to be today. Just put it on the schedule.
- Forget the booze, cigars and toys. Get pops something alive that he can put in his garden or on the patio. Emphasize going green without being a pain in the ass.
Remember — it’s not about what you spend; it’s about showing you appreciate what he’s done and how he’s done it. Keep it personal.
