What to get your father at the last minute on Father's Day 2011

See also

So, you're reading this because you forgot it was Father's Day or you could never figure out what to get your dad. You're in luck because below are just a few easy things to do for your dad on Father's Day 2011.

  1. Take Dad to see Super 8. Super 8 is an action movie about junior high kids "coming of age", but it also tells an excellent story of two single fathers trying to reconcile with their children in the midst of tragedy. Super 8 is showing at Movie Tavern in both Denton and Fort Worth today.
  2. Send Dad a Cabela's E-gift card. Cabela's is offering an E-gift card online that can be delivered in as quick as four hours, so you could go with your dad to spend it this afternoon if you hurry!
  3. Help Dad do a project. Probably of all the activities/gifts listed here, time working together is what your father wants most. Many men are embarrassed by words and recognition, but probably every dad is behind on a project or honey-do and could us help!

Hopefully you remembered Father's Day and sent your gift, or you have time to go visit your dad today. If you can't do what you wanted for Father's Day, do what you can: call him, write on his Wall, send smoke signals, or one of the above. He is worth it today.
