A few of these items are a little off the wall to some but do have the potential to be a lot of fun. The biggest gift anyone can give a parent is love and their time. Spend time with Dad this year. Tell the special men in your life how much you love them.

Thank you to all the dads around the world. Your sacrifices, hard work, and dedication to your families are not without notice. Happy Father’s Day to all the single parents who play the part of both parents. You’re amazing!
