What should I write in my Father's Day card?
Ideally you'd come up with something thoughtful and unique, but if you're struggling and waiting for inspiration to strike, you may wish to follow these helpful tips:
- A poem - It doesn't have to be corny or cheesy, but a little poem can add a nice touch
- A quote - Who's your dad's favourite author? Or, maybe he's really into a song?
- A thank you - The day is designed to celebrate fathers, and so a simple "thank you" goes a long way
- An action plan - If you feel like you've missed out over the last year because of the pandemic, why not write out the things you'd like to achieve with your dad this coming year?
- An "I miss you" - For those who have lost their loved one, it can be really cathartic to write out your feelings. It's also a good way to feel connected to them
