Father's Day is always celebrated on the 3rd Sunday in June. This year it falls on June 17th.
Historically, Dads get the short end of the stick on parental holidays. Fifty million fewer cards are sent to fathers than mothers to commemorate the day and hardly any flowers. That just doesn't seem right to us.
So, we've rounded up some great ideas to knock his socks off this year and also some fun facts to bring up at lunch.
For Dads Who Love Power
How about a recliner? And not just any old recliner, a power motion recliner. Today's recliner is able to kick back with a touch of a button. It can recline to any position as opposed to just a couple like the recliners of old. Power recliners also come with a USB port for easy charging, because…….WHY NOT? It's like letting him have a sleek power tool right in the middle of the living room.
Reclining doesn't have to be a solitary experience anymore. Sofas and sectionals also come equipped with power recliners, so if your dad likes to snuggle, he can finally have it all.
For Outdoor Dads
Dads often spend hours working in the yard and keeping it nice. How about some new outdoor furniture so everyone can enjoy the scene? These days, outdoor furniture looks and sits more like indoor furniture. You know, the kind you are used to seeing at Casinos and Resorts, but could never afford? Newsflash: That's all changed. Now stylish outdoor furniture is affordable and accessible. It's time to take another look.
Oh, and we have fire pits! Need we say more?
