Looking for the perfect prezzy for the special dad's in your life? We broke down great gift ideas using the 5 Love Languages as a guide.
We all express love in different ways and wish to receive love in certain ways. Some dads just want a heart-felt card with words of affection, while others desire some quality time with their children. Follow this guide to decipher what gifts would be best for the dads in your life based on what love language speaks to them
Love Language #1: Acts of Service
Does your Dad light up when someone does something practical for him to help out his life? Does he believe actions speak louder than words?
Love Language #2: Quality time
Does Dad pine for a moment of undistracted, uninterrupted quality time with the people he loves? And remember, keep your phone out of sight during his time with you!!
Love Language #3: Gifts
Does Dad gush over gifts you buy him? If he turns into a little boy at the sight of a present and sincerely loves receiving gifts then its time to get creative and nail the perfect surprise gift for him!
Language of Love #4: Physical touch
Does Dad love holding your hand? Does he try get in as many hugs as possible? Or perhaps he is constantly asking for a back rub? If so, physical touch could be his love language.
Language of Love #5: Words of Affirmation
Does Dad fish for compliments and light up when he gets them? Does it bring him satisfaction and delight when you acknowledge him for being a great Dad or tell him “I love you”?
And for those who have difficult relationships with their fathers, remember that this is an opportunity for healing, forgiveness and for our parents to learn from us.
I hope this has given you some good ideas and inspiration for this Fathers Day!
