Father’s day is coming up this weekend. If you are a last minute shopper, don’t fall for the advertisements.
Father’s day, like most holidays, has become tremendously commercialized. “Get dad Avatar,” the latest adds go. Or get him a new BBQ, the Kindle, or iPad. Those are great gifts, for a birthday, but not for Father’s Day. Father’s Day is a day to celebrate fatherhood and to show appreciation.
As part of appreciating, it would be good to line up the gift with Dad’s love language.
