20 Ways to Celebrate Dad on Father’s Day

Father’s Day is coming right up! At our house, we like to celebrate fun holidays like this with experiences, instead of things. I usually surprise my husband with a day filled with some of his favorite things. One year, we went golfing and I made him his favorite thing to eat. Last year, I surprised him with a little road trip where we hiked through a state park and ate lunch at a sausage factory. These kinds of celebrations are some of our favorite memories!
