In honor of Father’s Day, I sat down with my husband to talk about what his fatherhood experience has been like. Dove Men+Care celebrates men and I’m excited to partner with Dove Men+Care to share these simple ways to make Father’s Day special.
I know that the experience of motherhood is very different than fatherhood. I’ll admit that I’m often so caught up in my experience that I don’t always take time to think about what it’s like to be the father of our amazing children.
Father’s Day is the perfect time to slow it down and focus on celebrating Dad and all he does for us! There are some easy ways to celebrate the father figures in your life!
4 Simple Ways to Make Father’s Day Special (Dove Men+Care & more!)
When it comes to Mother’s Day, I like to keep it pretty simple. I love a good homemade card from the kids and I love getting the van detailed. Oh, and going out to eat together. It’s a simple celebration but it’s really just perfect.
When it comes to celebrating Father’s Day, Justin is very similar. He likes to keep it low key though I probably come up with a few things that are a bit more sentimental for him because I do love giving gifts.
If you’re looking for some simple ways to celebrate we have some ideas that are easy to put together.
1. The Gift of Time
Just like moms on Mother’s Day, one of the easiest ways to make Father’s Day special is to take it easy and give him the gift of time. It’s the easiest (and most affordable) gift you can hive him!
The day doesn’t have to be a perfect day packed full of things to do and places to be. Justin told me that the best Father’s Day gift he could get would be a day at home just relaxing with the family.
So don’t hesitate to take a break and just let dad relax.
2. Dove Men+Care Clean Comfort Products
When we think of bath and skincare products, women usually come to mind. But bath products make great gifts for dads. It’s just as important for fathers to make time for themselves and really take care of themselves.
Putting together a gift box full of Dove Men+Care products is a great way to encourage your husband to find a self care routine that can help him feel at his best.
Dove Men+Care Clean Comfort Body and Face Wash is a cleansing formula that offers a refreshing clean and comfort for the skin. Justin likes that it washes away without leaving any residue behind.
I like that his skin is taken care of thanks to MICROMOISTURE technology in the Dove for men products. It locks in the natural moisture in Justin’s skin and also has a crisp, refreshing scent that I love!
Justin has also been using the Dove Men+Care Clean Comfort Antiperspirant Deodorant Stick that protects against sweat and body odor for 48 hours. It has a clean scent that keeps him feeling great all day long, whether he’s at work or at home.
Putting together a collection of Dove Men+Care products would be a great gift for Father’s Day. He may not want a bubble bath, but time to take a long shower and wash away the cares of the world is something I know Justin never turns down!

3. Let Him Make the Plans
If your family is anything like ours, things like swim lessons, sports practice, dance class, and school functions seem to drive our days. Sometimes it feels hard to find time to do everything we might like to do.
Justin loves all of the things we do with our kids but having the gift of choice is often the best gift of all. So instead of planning out a day of Father’s Day of celebrations, hand it over to him. Give dad the chance to choose something he’d love to do.
We’ve gone to the movies together, gone to see the Astros play baseball, made pizza at home, and even gone out to paint pottery together. It all depends on how Justin feels. Sometimes the best gift is a few hours alone. I know it’s one thing I enjoy, so it only makes sense that it might an easy way to make Father’s Day special!
4. Share What You Love About Him
I asked Justin what his favorite thing about Father’s Day was and he said it was the way we all take time to tell him all the things we love and appreciate about him. I try to do this on a daily basis but special days really bring it out.
Try doing one of these simple activities to show Dad just home much he is loved and cared for:
- Make your own Father’s Day card
- Buy a card and write your own message to him
- Make a video together telling him how important he is
- Draw pictures that show how he is important (this is great for younger kids)
Father’s Day doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive for Dad to feel appreciated. You can keep it simple and focused on time together or head out to the store and pick up some great gifts.
