Father's Day Military Dad Style
Father’s Day Military Dad Style
This year, Father’s Day falls on Sunday, June 20th. For Dads serving in the military, Father’s Day is often a day where your appreciation often travels great distances to reach them. If the Dad in your family is currently TDY or deployed, you can still show him your appreciation by sending a care package that lets him know he is not forgotten. And, if your Dad is home, here are some store and restaurant discounts that you can take advantage of this year! Read on for more ideas to put a smile on the Dad in your life’s face!
CARE PACKAGES | Items that you can include in a Father’s Day care package might be Dad’s favorite candies, a family photo, a book he’d enjoy, socks, and personal care items. Remember that especially on a deployment, Dads may not have access to their favorite snacks and consumer items. Hand crafted items from the kiddos are a big hit too!
DON’T FORGET TO ASK FOR MILITARY DISCOUNTS | Some of your favorite stores and service providers offer military discounts. Here is a very comprehensive list.
TAKE DAD TO DINNER | Restaurants like Macaroni Grill, Firehouse Subs, PF Chang’s, and Outback SteakHouse offer Father’s Day Discounts. Check out this list for more!
REQUEST A GIFT BOX | If Dad is currently deployed, you can also request a FREE Father’s Day care package, sent on your behalf from Full Circle Home.
SUBSCRIPTION BOXES | Monthly, curated subscription boxes can send a range of products directly to a military Dad, even ones who are deployed. Hello Subscription has a selection of military and veteran subscription boxes available that include items such as branch-related clothes and tactical gear.
MEDAL & AWARD DISPLAY CASES | Send Dad a display case for his military medals and awards to honor his years of service.
PERSONALIZED AMMO BOX | Personalized ammo boxes are made from military surplus boxes and custom printed with name and date in a variety of designs.
ORGANIZE A DAD/KID TRIP | Dad will always consider spending time together a great gift. You can organize a weekend trip, going to a sporting event, or a recreational activity. The memory of time with your dad will last forever.
CREATE A VIDEO/PHOTO ALBUM | Dad will love revisiting events from the past with this treasured gift. Inmotion Albums creates interactive print, digital, and video albums.
