Father’s Day isn’t about the gifts. They can be very nice and show appreciation and are greatly appreciated. As a Dad, though, I’d rather do something simple and memorable: go for an ice cream with my daughters like we used to do!
I spent many days driving up to Captain Dusty’s in Manchester-By-The-Sea for an ice cream with Abbey and Charlotte. Then we’d go across the street to Masconomo Park and they’d play on the swings. I would LOVE to do that on Father’s Day, but Charlotte is in DC for the summer, so we’ll celebrate with an ice cream run when she comes home later in the summer!
I will enjoy spending time with my daughter, Abbey, and my eight month old grandson, Harvey! I’m also going to Maine to visit the greatest Dad, ever, my Dad, Al Morse. We’re going to have lunch at our favorite spot, Goldthwaite’s in Biddeford Pool!
Whatever it is you choose for your Dad, I’m sure it will be something he appreciates!
Below, some ideas to help you with some Father’s Day ideas!
Dads can be tough to buy for on Fathers’ Day. To be honest, I really have enough stuff! I’d rather have a special picture with family in a cheap little frame. It’s the memories and the experiences more than “things” that matter to me! . It’s about 28 cents to develop a picture at CVS and it’s easy to find a $4 frame on clearance at Marshall’s. The memory will last forever!
That being said, Dads do have things they love, like steak, flip flops and massages. Below, find some links to things Dads love!

How to grill those beautiful steaks!
Feet aren’t the most attractive thing on most Dads, but it’s cool to have comfortable flip flops on when you’re flippin’ burgers!
If your Dad doesn’t like flip flops, try these summer shoes!
Does your Dad have foot trouble? The expert, Tom Cavanaugh, has “Fred Flintstone” feet! He LOVES “Oofos”!
I can only speak for myself, but I LOVE to get a massage.
YES, I’ve had a pedicure and it’s the BEST!
Dad’s love baseball, but Red Sox tickets are hard to get and expensive. How about watching the best college baseball players in the country, with your Dad, on Cape Cod?
Does your Dad love beer? There’s a club for that!
How about cool socks? One of my favorite gifts ever was the “sock of the month” for a year!
If your Dad loves tools or likes to fix stuff, there’s a “box of the month” club for that, too!
Maybe your father just wants time to relax and watch golf. The US Open is underway this weekend!
