A Celebration He Will Always Remember

We often depend on the newspaper ads and questions that we ask will determine what we should give to that special man on father's day. Many times he will act as if he is happy to get that new wallet, briefs, socks, briefcase or tie but what he is really asking for is for us to be different. When you work in a place where men are on duty 24/7 and father's day rolls around, you were hear them chatting about what they have received. They will nonchalantly say they received another new wallet again or it is sock season time and then go about their business just like it is any other day.

This year think outside the box and give him a celebration that he will always remember. Keep in mind that even if he does not have children, he is still a father. He could be a big brother, a wonderful uncle, a shoulder to lean on when advice is necessary all of these factors come into play and so many more when you are thinking about him on father's day.

Unique Ideas

Uniqueness can be the key to a wonderful Father's day, you do not have to spend a lot of money and it will be something he will be talking about for quite a long time. All men have a soft side, take advantage of it and open up a new experience for both him and you.

1. Run a Bubble Bath: Believe it or not quite a few men love bubble baths, including the manly man. If he used to have a rubber ducky when he was a kid get him one, just because we are all adults does not mean there isn't a little boy in there somewhere.

2. Create a Kings Crown and Sash : There is nothing like crowning your man king for a day and treating him like royalty. He may say " Honey this is silly!" , but what he is really trying to say is " I am honored to be your King!" Cook him breakfast, giving him a foot massage or manicure and pedicure he will thank you for this.

3. Create " I LOVE YOU" cards : If you have any type of paper laying around , you can cut them into hearts, circles, squares etc. get creative and write from your heart reasons why he is so special to you. Plant them in his pocket, his lunchbox, in his sandwich, briefcase, by the phone wherever you believe he will find them and read them. Remind him of how important he is to you and your family.

4. Create a Game: If you enjoy playing board or card games create a game and he will be the ending. Many of you know what strip poker is, or you may have some of those other adult games laying around, pull them out and use them to his advantage, both of you will be delighted about the outcome of the ending.

5. Be his French Maid : Ladies it does not matter what size you are small or bodacious he loves you for who you are , wait on him hand and foot. Get sexy and give him what he wants, if you don't have the french maid outfit dig out those favorite pair of shorts ,shirt or dress that he loves seeing you in and drools over. Wear it! Wear those boxers he loves to see you in, or the t-shirt without anything underneath, if you want to add some spice into your relationship and want to give your man some bragging rights, just do it!

6. Baseball for Two: Quite a few men enjoy sports and there isn't anything like seeing a live game, no ladies not one in front of the 52" Plasma TV. If it is in the budget treat just him and you to the baseball game, plan activities earlier or later in the evening, track down a babysitter maybe a friend's son or daughter or a family member, you can sometimes check-out the yellow pages in your area and find a licensed and bonded nanny. They are not as expensive as we all believe and they will be worth every penny. Be a couple again and watch that baseball live at the stadium.

7. Tape A Video: While he is away and if you have a camcorder create a video of why you love him and what he means to you and your family remember to include them. You can have them sing, write a poem or story about why dad is so important. If it is just you and him create a personal tape of the many reasons why they are important to you. On Father's Day tell them you rented a movie , if they asked what it is tell them it is a surprise and they are going to have to wait and see. Put in that DVD or VHS and watch their eyes and hearts unfold to the original movie you just made. If they are military and cannot be home for Father's Day download that movie you just made and send it via e-mail don't forget to let them know that you will celebrate Father's Day when they get home, and let them know what you they will be looking forward to.

8. BBQ or Cook: They say a way to a man's heart is through his stomach , if you haven't cooked his favorite dish in a while or are clueless about how to cook it, find the recipe and practice at a friend's house. If you don't know how to cook do not be ashamed have someone teach you to at least cook this one meal. He will be quite grateful and very surprised that you had his best interest at heart.

9. Try one of his hobbies: We all realize that men have a hobby or two and some of them involve risk, while other hobbies we simply will not do at all. If your man has a hobby that you have always been fearful of getting involved with , let him know you will be happy to try it once,although there isn't any guarantee you will do it again. He will jump for joy just knowing that you at least took an extra step to get involved with his hobby.

10. In the bedroom : We all knew this was coming on Father's Day once the little people are put to bed we should not make any excuses that we are all to tired, try something new. Ask him what we would like to try or experiment with, his answers may surprise you. Have fun with it and relax as it could be a new beginning for both of you.

Be unique and creative on Father's day , it certainly isn't about spending a lot of money, it is about the celebration of Father's Day and how we spend it.

For my hubby...he isn't very deep so I think he would like the French main scenario along with some dessert...other than that If I get all into it he will be like...OKAY THANKS and not even read the card. He is like that. Its better for me not to disappoint myself in that sense. Simple is better. Anything to do with him "getting some" is good enough for him..LOL

Nice ideas. I like the French maid and all the variations like a walk on the woods dressed as "little red reding hood", or the Sheherezada one where I can even get to tell him a naughty story ;-)

You've outdone yourself, AE! The French Maid bit is soooooo corny but sooooo effective! The video or DVD is a great idea too, for family viewing. ;D

This really goes to show that men don't need much money spent on them to enjoy Father's Day. Yep, the frilly, fun and sexy attitudes of wives really do appeal to us.

You read my heart, you are quite a woman that men rarely if ever have had the pleasure of knowing.

...perfections warm embrace denied

I take my peace deep down inside

in knowing that my love was true

and may have once been meant for you...

As I read your comments I just wished I had met you 30 years ago and lived happily Aeven after.

Don't take this the wrong way :))
