We’ve come a long way as a society in terms of celebrating Father’s Day— did you know father’s frowned on the holiday in the early 1920’s? They complained the sentimental gifts interfered with their masculinity and that gifts were only given by families using their own personal money!
According to this 2017 survey, adult shoppers spent an average of $134.75 on their gifts. Giving us a running total of 15.5 billion total in the United States. Of course, it is not necessary to match this exact amount. There are a variety of gifts available for Dad for budgets of all kind.
You are probably celebrating more than just your biological father on this day. Between step-dad’s, father-in-laws, grandfather’s, brothers, sons, and men that have acted as your father, it can be overwhelming to say the least. Make this a personal decision on who you choose to honor.
At the very least make sure to give Dad, Step-Dad, and Father-in-Law all a card with a handwritten message inside. If you choose to honor individuals such as your son or brother on Father’s Day, that is entirely up to you. You may not wish to spend the same amount on each Father figure in your life, but a card should be doable for each of them. Bonus Points for Grandpa!
When writing messages in your card, remember that what you write is cherished more than the Hallmark message itself. Again, be thoughtful and keep it personal. Depending on your Dad and who he is as a person, decide just how sentimental to be.
