My father has always been there for me
I am grateful every day for having such a great role model in my life. He has helped me to choose the best husband and father to my children by setting such an example as to how a great father should be. From the day he walked me down the aisle and handed me over to the new man in my life, I knew I would still hold him in the highest regard as the person who could fix anything.
Now, more than ever father’s today play an even bigger part in their childs’ lives. From making packed lunch, to organising birthday parties and maybe even attending the occasional playdate. Dad’s are at home more and endeavour to make their days more flexible so they can spend more time being involved in the day to day. So how do you decide what the best gift is to show your gratitude for their evolving roles?
Mother’s Day is a big celebration, we receive huge acknowledgement for the role we play in bringing up our children. I want to make sure my partner knows that he is equally appreciated for the challenges we experience alongside the joys of parenting today.
Finding the perfect fathers day gift
I am sure, like me you take the time to reward your father or the father of your children. I like to find a gift that can last into their lives together, something that in future my children as adults will still be able to do with their dad. Games like chess are something that can be learned together and practiced. Music is such an enjoyable thing to listen to, maybe your father plays guitar, why not learn too, and play together. Start a tradition for your family that will help you to share time together.
As the men in our lives change, embrace this by indulging them and help the modern day Dad to relax and for new dad’s it’s a time to enjoy this day for the first time so make it extra special. If you need some more inspiration take a look at my Pinterest board.
Of course I’m sure nothing would be nicer than spending time doing whatever your dad likes, as the absolute best gift you could give is time together.Yours Giulia
