The tags we provided are very open to interpretation so that you can personalize this Father’s Day tradition to your own dad!
To get your creative juices flowing we’ll give you several ideas to get you on the right track as you prepare for Father’s Day Eve. For the foot rub tag, include a bottle of lotion or a hand-held massager to attach to the tag!
When it’s time for him to have a bacon break, deliver him a plate of bacon or get him bacon socks, you could even make a bouquet of bacon roses! To the tag granting him a little “me time”, you could set up a nook for him to read or work, or go all out with the gift giving and include a new watch!
Look for the tag granting Dad a show in pure silence. Tell me that doesn’t sound heavenly! You could attach a cozy blanket or a new pillow for his viewing pleasure… or you could just have Netflix all cued up and ready in his room! What dad doesn’t love to get some competitive juices flowing? When it’s time to turn up the heat because you give Dad the tag that tells him it’s time to compete, give him nerf guns or head outside for a basketball game and make him show you what he’s got!
More Father’s Day Gift Ideas
Of course, what Father’s Day is complete without a great breakfast?! Make him his favorite that he rarely gets, or make him breakfast in bed! One of my personal favorite tags lets Dad choose one item from his to-do list and you help him complete it! Maybe you can anticipate what he will be wanting help with and you can grab some new supplies to go with the tag. Perhaps, car washing supplies, or new gardening gloves for pulling weeds.
For the tag that says, “You deserve to be spoiled” you could attach a gift or a treat that he loves. When it’s time for the tag letting Dad choose the movie, snuggle up and enjoy watching another sports legend movie for the bazillionth time as he quotes every word.
There is even a tag for a “silly surprise”. Make up a song about Dad, or even a funny little dance to make him laugh. Finally, write a note or tell him aloud all the reasons he is the greatest father of all time. That is the final made-for-you tag on the page and a great way to wrap up a very memorable Father’s Day Eve!
These are just a handful of ideas to get your creativity flowing. Personalize your Father’s Day Eve Tradition specifically for your Dad!
Having every hour of the day dedicated to him will be a luxurious Father’s Day tradition that will be a huge hit every year. It’s good for Dad to get all of the attention for the day. This will be a Father’s Day celebration he will never forget!
