While it’s great to honor your dad of Father’s Day, there are ways to celebrate him throughout the entire year as well.


Thank him: Dads do a lot for their kids –of all ages. Make sure you show your dad you appreciate his help by thanking him.


Tell him you love him: We all love our fathers, so don’t be afraid to tell him. A simple “I love you” can go along way to making a dad feel appreciated.


Call him: For older children who no longer live at home, make sure to call your dad often and check in and ask him how he’s doing.

Do yard work: Help your dad by pulling some weeds or mowing the lawn or doing other landscaping tasks he’s been putting off.


Take him to dinner: Surprise your dad by taking him to his favorite restaurant for a meal on you.


Pay him a visit: If you’ve moved out of the house, stop by and visit your dad and spend some time with him.


Ask him about his day: While dads tend to always ask their kids how they are doing, instead ask him about what he did and how he’s doing.


Give him a card: You don’t have to wait for special occasions to give your dad a card. Presenting him with one on a non-holiday will make it even more special.


Help with small jobs around the house: Does your dad have a long to-do list of home repairs he needs to do? Stop by and help him complete some of them, or surprise him by hiring a repairman to finish the projects.

Wash his car: No one likes driving in a dirty car. Wash your dad’s car for him and save him the time.
