It's Father's Day on Sunday.  Why does it seem easier to choose a Mother's day gift?  For some reason our society has made flowers and candy the gifts for mothers, but advertises socks or ties for Father's day.  Have you already thought about what you'll do to honor your Dad?  No matter what stereotype society has given males, a gift that's especially meaningful is one that shows Dad you took time to think about him.

Here are some ideas to get your creative juices flowing:

Make a Memory Box.  Place in a box items that have special meaning to you and your dad. 
Gather ticket stubs, photographs, an old sweatshirt, a special keepsake, a favorite book, or whatever will bring back happy memories for dad.

If you're artistic, you may want to draw or sculpt a piece of art that reminds Dad of a special time he had with you.  A few years ago I saw a dad proudly wearing a sweatshirt with names and hand prints of each of his children painted on it.
You might give Dad a booklet that includes 12 coupons, one for each month of the year with a promise of time to spend with dad in any activity that's special to both of you.

If you and your dad like music, record a collage of songs or parts of songs that tell him how special he is to you!  A cassette tape or CD is a great way to send love to a Dad who lives too far away to visit on Father's Day.

Write dad a letter telling him why he is the best dad in the world.  Include not only the things he’s done, but also the respect you have for him as a person.

Write a prayer to God thanking Him for your dad.  Name the important ways that your dad helped you learn about the Heavenly Father and experience His love.  One of the best gifts you can give a Christian dad is the assurance that his Savior is yours too!

In this awesome paettrn of things you actually secure an A just for hard work. Where you misplaced us ended up being in all the particulars. You know, as the maxim goes, the devil is in the details And that couldn't be more true here. Having said that, let me tell you just what did give good results. Your text is pretty persuasive and this is possibly why I am taking the effort in order to comment. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Second, whilst I can notice the leaps in reasoning you come up with, I am not really convinced of how you seem to connect your ideas which produce your conclusion. For the moment I will subscribe to your position but hope in the foreseeable future you actually connect your dots better.
