It's coming up this Sunday, sneaking in among all the end-of-school and graduation and summer-program-starting chaos. If you need a quick idea to hide the fact that you forgot all about this important holiday, try one of these last-minute ideas for Father's Day card and gift giving:
- Print out a Love Notes for Special Parents greeting card with a Happy Father's Day message inside. Fold it up, and tell Dad you're saving the environment by skipping the envelope.
- Give Dad or Grandpa some well-deserved public recognition for the things he does for his child or grandchild with special needs by posting about it on the Readers Respond page. Copy the url into that card you just printed out so he'll see what nice things you said.
- Books are always a good gift, and though moms seem to produce the most memoirs, there are many that reflect a father's experience, including this week's Harried Parent's Book Club pick, The Boy in the Moon, and others in the Dad's Toolbox gallery.
- Offer Dad a few laughs, along with those things you know he really wants, with ten printable Coupons for Special Dads. Give him the whole set, or pick the most desirable one and give him a bunch of copies.
