When a storm is coming, all other birds seek shelter. The eagle alone avoids the storm by flying above it. So, in the storms of life may your heart be like an eagle’s and soar above.” – Author Unknown

Father’s Day is around the corner.  What can you get Dad that he will love?  Here are a few ideas.

  • An appreciation card, cost $0.

An appreciation card is simply a card that states how much you appreciate him.  It can also give a list of things you will do for him for Father’s Day.  List things you can do for Dad that he usually does for himself that he does not particularly enjoy doing.  Be creative in what you list and how you state your list.

This gift sounds simple but takes a long time to create if you spend time thinking about it first.  It is a gift Dad will always treasure.

  •      Spend time together, cost varies.

Simply spending time with Dad, real quality time, is a great gift.  Take an interest in whatever Dad wants to do and enjoy doing it with him.  This is a gift you both will enjoy and always remember.

  • A drone, $59 plus free shipping on Amazon.

For the Dad who has everything who loves simple distractions, this is a great gift.  It provides hours of distraction and fun so Dad can take a mental break from the challenges of his day.

Most people are curious about their ancestors and their genetics.  One gift that every curious person will enjoy is a genetic test kit.  This gift can allow your Dad to submit a sample of his saliva and find out if he has the lactose intolerance gene or the LRRK2 gene, the gene for Parkinson’s disease. It can also tell him more about his ancestry.

It is a gift I would give my Dad if I could.


Love your Dad while he is here with you.  Love him every minute you can.  One day he will be gone and you will no longer be able to ask him for advice or simply sit and watch TV together.

No one knows how much time he has left on this earth.  It is important to spend every day of your life appreciating and loving everyone who matters to you.

Parents, set an example for your own children.  Honor your own Dad on Father’s Day!


Soar like an eagle over life’s storms with your Dad.  Show him how much you love and appreciate him on Father’s Day!
