This weekend is Father's Day — the day to honor our dads with a thoughtful card or day together, if you're lucky. Whether or not you've always been a daddy's girl, take this Father's Day to celebrate with some quality father-daughter bonding if you can. Head to a driving range or simply watch golf's US Open on TV; drink beer at the baseball park or head to a brewery for a tour; shop a farmers market and make a lunch with your hull or simply order his favorite greasy pizza. Here are 15 fresh or classic ideas to get you started on planning a thoughtful Father's Day.
Moms aren't the only ones celebrating an addition to their family these days. While some parents-to-be opt for a couples shower, a new trend is putting the focus on the man of the house. A "dadchelor" party (also know as man-shower, diaper party, daddymoon, and dadelor party) is daddy's last hurrah before the baby comes. Often described as the male counterpart of a baby shower, it's actually more like a bachelor party but with diapers. And they've become increasingly popular of the last year or two.
Is dad-to-be complaining about feeling left out due to the baby shower? A dadchelor party might be just what he needs.
Only men are allowed at this fete, but you can rest assured that there will be plenty of beer, food, and diapers!
Father's Day is this Sunday, and we've been reminiscing on the advice we've gleaned from our dads. Annie's dad, on the right, gave her these words of wisdom: "Nothing good happens after 2 a.m." While my dad, looking quite dapper on the left, has always stressed, "You never regret paying a bit more for quality."
Now it's your turn! We would love to see pics of you and your pop along with the best love and life advice he's passed down to you. First, be sure to like us on Facebook. Then, post a picture of you and your dad on our Facebook wall and tell us the best advice you received from him! The picture can be of your dad back in the day or a current pic of the two of you — whatever you'd like to share. We can't wait to see your father-daughter shots and read the advice your dads have given you over the years.

Oh, dad. From the awkward and embarrassing days coaching our youth sports to busting out the famous dance moves only dads know at our birthdays, he always took charge, from home repairs, navigation — you name it — Dad's the boss! So to commemorate the man of the house, here are a few websites to celebrate dad's unique sense of humor, style, and words of wisdom.
I grew up in a pretty active family. My dad was insistent on getting the whole family bikes when I was in junior high. It embarrassed me at the time, how he made us go on family bike rides, but he definitely instilled in me a love for being active. Now he plays racquetball and goes on daily walks with my mom. I'm really glad he keeps moving since we have heart problems in our family. He knows exercising is good for his health, and it keeps him around to enjoy his grandchildren. Since Father's Day is this Sunday, I was wondering . . .
Father's Day is this Sunday, June 15, so if you need some last-minute gift ideas, here are a few ways to inspire Dad to live a healthy and active lifestyle (just like you).
- Golf gear
- Handheld GPS
- Kayak or canoe
- A new bike
- Water skiing or surfing lessons
- A few sessions with a personal trainer
- A year subscription to Men's Health magazine
- A grill basket for cooking veggies at the next BBQ
- A volleyball and net for the backyard
- Sport-inspired tie
