History of Father’s Day
Father’s Day is a celebrated in the United States on third Sunday of June. It’s a day on which not only we honor dads and stepdads, but also grandfathers and father figures. Many attribute the observance of the holiday to Sonora Louise Smart Dodd, who is believed to have petitioned for an annual celebration in honor of fathers honoring her own dad. Others believe the holiday originated following a 1907 mining disaster in West Virginia that inadvertently left hundreds of children without a dad.
All Dads LOVE good food, so why not celebrate the dads in your life with a special dinner and dessert. Kara Zauberman from The Pioneer Women has curated some wonderful recipes that will surely be a hit!

But don’t just settle for a meal. Plan to spend quality time doing something together, than you know your dad will enjoy. Some suggestions include: golfing together, washing the car, or arranging for a dream car test-drive.
Once you have the meal and the experience figured out, do not forget to get a gift for dad. Dads are practical and they appreciate practical gifts, but there is only so many tools or BBQ accessories they need. Be more creative this time and build a gift box for dad that will contain all his favorite goodies. A curated gift box with a tumbler, coffee, chocolate and cookies will definitely score you some brownie points.
Another great option, for those dads that are whiskey connoisseurs, is a whiskey gift box featuring either a whiskey wedge glass or a cigar glass, whiskey infused chocolate, bourbon smoked peanuts and Woodford Reserve Cherries.
Is your dad a coffee lover? (whose dad isnt't?), then send him a coffee gift box with a walnut wood Corkcicle coffee mug, variety of coffees, and delicious cookies.
