In the age of digital messaging, few things beat a handwritten card—especially when it comes to holidays. So for Father’s Day, why not send a note to your dad to tell him how much he means to you? Make sure you write it in a greeting card; it will turn your words into a beloved keepsake. Thanks to sites like Etsy and Minted, there is no shortage of unique cards with clever sentiments for the greatest guy in your life.
You have a lot of choices when it comes to picking out a Father’s Day card. While flowers are a common motif for moms, card illustrations run the gamut with dads. Characters in pop culture, for instance, are a popular choice. In a painted card, artist Alexandra Harris depicts one of the most famous (and notorious) fathers around, Darth Vader. But if you’re trying to steer clear of television and movies, there are still plenty of options for you, depending on what your dad likes. Does he enjoy beer? This Guinness card will whet his emotional whistle. Or, is your father always on hand with a silly pun? Get him a card that highlights his dad jokes and makes him smile.
