Making Father's Day Special

Throughout the year, fathers love and care for their children; even grown up children receive Dad's help, advice and care. Each September, everyone has the chance to acknowledge Dad's efforts and make him feel wanted and appreciated.

Although your Dad will love a gift, there are many other ways to show him how much you care. Here are just a few:

* Go to the footy (or his favourite winter sport) together

* Have a BBQ where Dad doesn't have to cook the meat! Make it for family or invite some of Dad's friends to join in.

* Take Dad on a walk or drive somewhere. Enjoy the scenery and each other's company.

* Give him a call if you can't be there. Even if you are seeing him, why not call Dad first thing in the morning to say "Happy Fathers Day."

* Send him a card in the mail as a surprise. Or join the digital age and send him an e-card or email.

* Take him fishing. Spending time in a quiet spot with you will make your Dad's year!

* Get the whole family together in one place, instead of Dad seeing his children (and grandchildren) separately. And don't forget Dad's Dad!

* Invite Dad (and Mum) over for a meal, and make it something special. If possible, include at least one of Dad's favourite dishes.

* Go home for the weekend, if you don't live with Dad anymore.
Really surprise him by doing all your old chores whilst your there.

* Hire a DVD or video and watch it together. Let Dad choose he genre.

* Do something to help Dad where he needs it most. Maybe it's tidying his desk, painting his lounge room, updating his computer programs or sorting his shed. Don't break any of his taboos in the process, though.
