Father’s Day is almost here… are you still looking for a gift for the Dads in your life? Is your husband or your own father tricky to shop for?
An easy and sure to please gift idea for dads is to book him a “weekend away”.
If he clocks in tons of hours at the office and misses the kids, perhaps you can book it for a family getaway. Or make it a gift for your relationship as well and make it a trip for two.
The bonus of giving this gift to your hubby, is that it can be a gift for you too… you can both enjoy the weekend trip together.
Many of us already have so many “things” filling up our houses, that giving “experience” gifts can be a great way to give a gift that fills our memories not our cluttered drawers.
You could book the trip for next weekend and take him away for Father’s Day or you could surprise him on Father’s Day with the date for your “weekend break” written in the card.
If you have small kids, it’s nice to spend the day as a family on Father’s Day, so you don’t need to have the trip actually booked for the Father’s Day weekend. Writing it in the card also gives the gift of anticipation… looking forward to a vacation is part of the joy.
Here are a few resorts ideas from Embassy Suites for trips you could gift to your husband or your own father…
Weekend Away Gift Ideas for All Types of Dads
Which type of man are you celebrating this Father’s Day?
