Best Experiences to Give Dad this Father’s Day

They say that a dad leaves his mark on the world through the love he gives to his children. I have been blessed to have been given an amazing father. One that has taught me and my children so much, and has given us an indefinite amount of love.

I have also had the fortune to marry my best friend who is an amazing dad to both of our girls.

While Father’s Day comes around once a year, and we treat our dads to a special day, the fact is–they should be celebrated every day. Plus, after a while, dads really have everything they need. But, experiences are the way to go! I recently gifted my parents with a Niagara Helicopter Tour and they still talk about it today. I was so happy that I was able to give them what is for most, a once in a lifetime experience. 

It’s truly priceless.
