Every year we set aside a day to celebrate all of the fathers in our lives, both biological and adopted. Traditionally, we mark this summer holiday with a barbecue or other outdoor meal and a very stylish gift, such as a tie or mug that says how much we love our dad. This year, think outside of the box and come up with something unique and interesting to show your dad that you’ve been thinking about him. Here are just a few suggestions to help you come up with a Father’s Day celebration that will really make him smile.

First, get him a gift that shows you truly care about him and are paying attention to his interests and desires. For example, if your dad is a big sports fan, get him tickets to an upcoming game with his favorite team or a piece of memorabilia from one of his favorite players. If your dad is interested in home brewing his own beer, pick him up something useful like a bottle matic from a company like Dispensa-Matic. If your dad is a movie buff, get him a gift certificate to a local theater or a book of cinema trivia. These gifts will show him that you listen and care about his interests.

Next, take your dad on an adventure or a relaxing trip. Again, choose your destination based on his interests and hobbies. Take him on a hike or visit the gun range if he loves being outdoors. Take him to the beach so he can work on his tan or go swimming. If he’d rather just stay home for the day, consider getting him a gift certificate for an outing so that he can go whenever he feels up to it. This will allow him to choose his own adventure and timing.

Finally, make sure that your dad knows how you really feel about him. Write him a note thanking him for everything that he’s ever done for you. If you find it hard to write about your feelings, choose a card that expresses your thoughts for you and let him know that you chose it just for him. He’ll always appreciate your honesty and kind words.

This Father’s Day, take some extra time to make your dad feel special and loved. He will always be grateful that you did.

Our bowling league will be holding its annual Christmas party on the second week of December. The membership committee is busy looking for bowling gift ideas for the raffle, the games and giveaways. The menu has been chosen and the members are all excited. I too am excited, I won a bowling ball last year. I hope I win a ball again this year.

I’m a godfather to so many kids. Most of them are from the marginalized poor. Because of my advocacies, I work closely with the underprivileged. So whenever a member of their community gives birth, I automatically asked to be a godfather. Times are tough and Christmas is upon us. Everyone of my godchildren expects to get a present from me. I have to be practical as they number to several dozens. My wife and I are shopping around for inexpensive baby, toddler, and kids gifts. These may not be much but I’m sure I’ll put a smile on their faces.

My teenage son is going through life’s phases. He starting to woo girls. He’s dating a girl right now and as any good suitor, he’s been giving her flowers & gifts. My wife and I are excited for him. We’re fully supportive and even give him pointers on how to earn good points. He’s very traditional and conservative. He’s biding his time and exerts effort to get to know the girl well which is good. Puppy love is in the air!
