No need to break the bank or bend over backwards to achieve a Father's Day triumph. Just follow this simple recipe for a special day any dad would love.

As you probably know, yesterday was Father’s Day. And I did good. So good, in fact, you might even call it a Father’s Day triumph.

Jay is the best dad I could possibly ask for my girl. He loves her completely and takes excellent care of her. So I wanted to make this Father’s Day great for him.

Here’s what I did:

  • Made his favorite breakfast: eggs, biscuits, bacon, and plenty coffee.
  • Gave him three presents: One practical (wallet), one sentimental (our wedding video—now on DVD!), and one he truly wanted (cover thingy for his new treasured possession, a Scion xB).
  • Let him nap.
  • Didn’t nag.
  • Told him just how much I appreciate him.

It was a hit! Now tell me, WMAGs, what did you do for the dads in your life? Did you have a Father’s Day triumph of your own?

No need to break the bank or bend over backwards to give the perfect Father's Day gift. Just follow this simple recipe for a special day any dad would love.

P.S. I didn’t forget my own dad, who has always been terrific. I gave him a pen holder for his office with a picture of our family on it, plus a card I made with my Hallmark card-making software. I believe he liked both very much.
