How can I make every day father's day?
What are his favorite things?
Make a list of all his favorite things: photography, family time, fishing, golf, his car, tv, sporting events, rum, steak, etc. After you have made the list, prioritize the list. You can do this with other family members. Once you have prioritized the list, then you can take the number one and number two and maybe number three items and make lists of related ways you can show your love and appreciation.

Evey dad wants to be REMEMBERED. That is the most important thing. I look at the little things my son has given me like his hand print and marvel at how time has passed. I suspect that a lot of other fathers will feel the same way. My son calls me or IM's me every day. I cherish that connection.
It is the little things that mean the most to me. Those things are generally inexpensive but take some effort. If my son were to show up and work in the yard for a couple of hours, I would be impressed. If he cleaned my car, I would be grateful. If he mowed my lawn and had me sit in a lawn chair sipping beer, I'd be thrilled.
Mostly I would want to spend the day with him. Just having a laugh and laid back time. That would be ideal for me.
Judge your situation and your Dad and supply him with attention that you know he will like.

Remember all the things your dad has done for You!
Build a memory book using special events in your lifetime when you depended on your dad. Good examples are when you learned to ride a bike, entered a soap box derby, your first day of school, throwing and catching, batting, feeling safe and gaining the courage to do something scary like skiiing, or diving. The book can be completely hand made with colorful paper or made in a scrap book using drawings, or photos.
A keepsake like this will mean the world to your dad and will give you and your dad many hours of enjoyment from time to time and you can add to it at different times during the year.
Guaranteed to be a treasured gift.
