Go over these nice little ideas and give your dad a wonderful surprise on this Father's Day!
A surprise party works best to honor dad as well as astonish him, if you can keep the preparations well under wraps. It is best to include only close family members in your guest list. Send out the invitations about 2-3 weeks in advance with instructions that the guests keep the thing a secret. Set up a time for them to arrive at the party and stess on the fact that they should arrive before your dad comes back from work and also instruct them where they should park their vehicles.
Start the decorations only after your dad leaves for work in the morning. Beautify the party area with balloons, streamers and a huge Happy Father’s Day banner. Arrange a food table in one side of the party zone and lay out the snacks in a way that makes them easily accessible for your guests. Order a cake or buy one personally with instructions to have "Happy Father's Day" written on it followed by your dad's name. Keep it in the freezer till your dad comes. As the guests arrive, let them in fast and make sure none of them can be seen through the windows or doors when your dad comes. As dad enters the party zone, have all of the guests yell, "surprise."
A gift that your dad expects the least from you, can give him a good surprise. If your dad loves sports, you can buy tickets to his favorite sporting event and give him as a gift. If you have the budget, buy him a brand new cellphone. Preferably, a business phone like a Blackberry if he is a busy person. You can also go for cheap but useful gifts such as a webcam that come in as low a price tag as $29.00. If your dad surfs the net too often, it will enable him to get in touch with his friends in "real time". All he needs then is to download software such as Yahoo messenger or Skype, get a screen name and plug into the usb port. You can do this for your dad and show him the way.
Father's Day is to give your dad a little joy and are we not all happy when we find our workload reduced? Take up some his jobs and let your dad rest a little. Mow the grass in the lawn for him or make a trip to the grocery store and buy the items needed in the house. Wash his car, scrub the exterior and vacuum the interior. Fill the tank using some bucks out of your own pocket. Buy his medicines before he does and hand them to him. Your dad will love this gesture and you will be surprised at what an immense pleasure and satisfaction it gives you to be of help to him.
