It doesn’t have to be Father’s Day to make Dad feel loved and appreciated, and all gestures don’t have to be grand. Even though fatherhood is a reward in itself, your dad and mine and your hubby probably wouldn’t mind an actual reward now and again, either.

#20. Buy a couple of video games.

One for him and one he can play with the whole family.

#19. Finish Sunday’s work on Saturday.

An entire day off will do everyone a lot of good.

#18. Grab his favorite snack.

Yes, even if it’s so terrible for him that he feels too guilty to buy it for himself.

#17. Rub his back.

Or scratch his head.

#16. Give him a hug.

From the front, from behind – a small display of affection goes a long way.

#15. Upgrade his toiletries.

He would never do it for himself, but that doesn’t mean he won’t enjoy it.

#14. Grab his favorite drink.

Surprise him with his favorite bottle or a six pack on a random weeknight.

#13. Flirt.

It’s fun, it’s great for your relationship, and healthy for your kids to see it, too.

#12. Get the good meats.

If your guy is a carnivore and a griller but hesitates to buy the best cuts because of the price, have a splurge dinner at home.

#11. Go with him.

Fishing? Golf? For a run? Chances are you used to do it together and now you don’t.

#10. Plan one-on-one Daddy dates.

Daddy-daughter, Daddy-son, and a date night for the two of you.

#9. Write a nice note.

If he tells you he doesn’t love hearing all of the sappy reasons why you love him as a dad, he’s lying.

#8. Plan a hike.

Plan the whole thing – just put Dad in the car with his hiking shoes and go.

#7. Psych your kids up for his homecoming.

Everyone loves coming home to sweet kiddos excited to see them.

#6. Put something personal in his work bag.

A drawing, a note, or those cookies he loves – he’ll know you were thinking about him when you did it.

#5. Get frisky.

You know what I’m talking about, and it’s always welcome.

#4. Let him poop in peace.

Run interference and cross your fingers he’ll do the same for you.

#3. Buy him new socks and underwear.

You know he needs them and he won’t buy his own until they are literal rags.

#2. Make time to binge-watch a show.

His choice, no commentary from you.

#1. Clean out the car.

Yes, it’s driving him nuts.

Yay, dads!
