8 things a wife should do for Father’s Day
No, I’m not talking about picking up dry cleaning or loading the dishwasher. That “to do” list will just have to wait another day. The things a wife should do on Father’s Day are special and celebrate the fact that this man is her husband and the father of her children. So if you’re ready, here are some of the many things a wife can do on Father’s Day:
Provide your husband with some “crazy money” – believe it or not, your husband also often puts off buying small things that he needs for the good of the family. So by giving him some money specifically to buy what he wants, he’ll feel good about buying that new pair of khakis or that DVD he’s wanted for months.
Have him plan a “night on the town” that you pay for! – Most of the time, when couples enjoy a “date night”, the wife chooses the restaurant and the movie. This Father’s Day let your husband make all the decisions and give him everything!
Surprise him with a vacation day. Plan an outing to the nearby beach, park, or zoo! Then contact her husband’s boss and tell him you’ll be taking off the Friday before or Monday after Father’s Day. To make it a real surprise, don’t tell your husband until he gets up for breakfast!
Go clean and wax your car, truck or SUV; add an oil change for a total vehicle makeover. Since the men of the house are normally responsible for maintaining the car, this will not only be a surprise, but a truly appreciated gift.
Send him for a weekend – send him on a men’s retreat, fishing with friends, or anywhere he can relax and rejuvenate.
Set aside money all year long so you can buy that really expensive gift he wants! Even if he doesn’t earn much, saving a little from each paycheck can really add up! Make sure this fund is strictly for Father’s Day, so you’re not tempted to tap into it for groceries. Every year, a handsome sum will be available to buy her husband that extravagant gift he really wants!
Give him some “alone time”: Set aside a whole day for your husband to do as he pleases. Send him out to play golf, baseball, or an all-day poker party with his friends. Let him know that he can keep the fort and the kids while he has fun.
Plan a night “at home”: When the kids are in the picture, intimacy isn’t always at the top of your list. Make sure romance is the #1 priority for Father’s Day. Send the kids out to Grandma and Grandpa for the day and cook a candlelit dinner, followed by snuggling up on the couch in front of your favorite movie, followed by a date in the bedroom.
The options for things a wife can do on Father’s Day are limitless. Just ask your partner, lover and friend what you can do to make that day the most special of the year.
