I have no idea what to do for my SO on Father's Day...Any ideas?? What do you usually do?? (first father's day for us)
Last year we didn't but for about 5 years before that we tend to go camping with my parents. My hubby likes camping but it's kind of a bummer that we go with my family. however if we were home he wouldn't do anything specific and every time I ask him he says YES to going camping.. This year we are going to VT to go camping and we are going in a hot air balloon ride.. I'm SO nervous and excited..
I usually make breakfast for DH. Usually pancakes or french toast with bacon, eggs, and coffee. After we eat breakfast, I tidy up the kitchen, and then we go out an do something as a family (movies, the park, or the zoo). Afterwards we go out for dinner (dh's choice of course) and have a nice family dinner. My parents, grandmother, and inlaws usually join us.
We don't usually do anything big for mother's or father's day just a dinner and that's about it.
He gets breakfast in bed (unless he wakes up early to golf), then he gets gifts/cards at dinner (usually steak, potato, brocolli) and for dessert he gets angel food cake. I make the cake while he vegges out in front of the TV or naps or something. Basically I try to give him a whole day off.
I don't do anything for father's day. My dad passed away and my husband isn't my father. I never wanted him to do anything for me at mother's day, either. I am not his mother.
We have been married for over 20 years. We have 2 boys, now ages 19 and 16. The favorite gifts for both my husband and I were the home-made gifts from the boys when they were old enough to make something (with help).
I'm not real sure, but thinking back, on his 1st father's day, I'm thinking the baby and I woke him up and gave him a creme filled donut. The baby was 9 months old, so he had a taste of donut creme with his dad.
Father's day with SO is spent with his mom because it's her birthday. That way the family can celebrate both.
Will be leaving town that weekend planned on purpose :)
