Fun Ways to Celebrate First Father’s Day

For those of you who are wondering when is fathers day?  It is SUNDAY, JUNE 18.  For the year 2017.

Now that you know what day it is, it is time to start planning for Father’s Day.  Unlike Mother’s Day, Father’s Day only became an official (1) U.S.  holiday in 1972.  Mother’s Day was made an official holiday in 1914 (sorry Dad).

First Father’s Day for your Honey

But we aren’t talking about celebrating the first father’s day.  We are talking about celebrating your husband’s first Father’s Day. Or your boyfriend’s.  You’ve brought a beautiful person into the world and, probably, been overwhelmed with the immense responsibility that has also arrived.  And you might not be too worried about how to celebrate first father’s day.

But you should.

I am going to list a few quick and relatively easy ideas for you to make his first fathers day special.  Nothing too elaborate as I know from experience that having a new little one around is quite exhausting.

Fun Ways Celebrate First Father’s Day

  • Go Shopping — LOL I told you this was going to be fun!  Maybe later on down the line, your little one can color a picture or buy a tie for Daddy. But for this first fathers day, the gift is on you.  So go get something that he truly would like that is in your price range.  Even if it is a CD of a music group that you hate.  There’s always headphones!  If you are completely stumped, you can check out what I offer from Avon. I also have a couple of suggestions below.  And remember there’s always gift cards 🙂

  • Continue Shopping — This will be for you, if it is in your budget.  You are going to surprise him with a nice dinner out without your sweet baby.  Call your friends or family to babysit (the ones you trust – this isn’t the night to try out a new baby-sitter).  The nice dinner requires a new outfit, yes?  If your budget doesn’t allow this — how about shopping in your friends’ closets? A pair of shoes from Amy, a dress from Marie, and a necklace from Susie means you have a whole new outfit that your husband hasn’t seen.
  • Dinner Day/Eve — Prepare for this like you might have prepared for your first date with your special man.  That means the works, doesn’t it?  You have to get your hair styled, get a manicure, and get a facial.  I mean this is all about celebrate first father’s day, right?
  • Dinner Night — Go out, give him his gift.  Have dinner, maybe dancing. And for a few short hours, remind him of why he is with you. Remind him that you were first his sweetie before you became his child’s mother. And, please, don’t keep calling the baby sitter to check on your baby.

Overview & Request for Comments

So what did you think? Is this doable for you? Do you think he will find this a good way to celebrate first Father’s Day?  Please let me know what you think.  I know it was very hard for me to separate from my baby when he was young.  And sometimes I forgot about being a wife because I was all wrapped up in being a mommy.
