Who’s the superhero in your life? If you’re like most people, it’s your dad. He’s the one who was always there for your baseball games, dance recitals, spelling bees, etc. He taught you how to drive, he took you to see every superhero movie you wanted to see when you were a kid and he was the one slipping you ten bucks when you needed it for pizza.
Father’s Day is June 16th this year – be sure to give your dad the recognition he deserves as the personal superhero who watched over you through the years. Take him out to dinner, go golfing with him, or check out Avengers Endgame with him. Most dads have a secret soft spot for superhero movies, so watching a movie filled with men who can save the world will be a sure-fire hit. Maybe even give him his own Captain America shield to hang on the wall in his man cave or garage to remind him year round that he’ll always be a hero in your eyes.
A Father’s Day Super Movie Night
If you want to give your dad a present this Father’s Day that will be appreciated and remembered long after the more traditional gifts have been forgotten, consider the gift of his favorite superhero movie on DVD or Blu Ray. There are plenty of them to choose from, including Black Panther, Iron Man, Batman, Spider Man, Superman and many more. Toss in some movie style popcorn and soda and you have the makings of a great night of bonding at home with your dad on his special day.
Super Costumed Duos
For dads who love to take part in Halloween fun with their kids, consider investing in matching superhero costumes for the ultimate trick-or-treat night fun. At Halloween Empire, we offer both children and adult sizes in various superhero costumes from the Marvel and DC universes. What dad wouldn’t love to be Superman while his pint-sized daughter is dressed as Supergirl? And if dad is Batman, what son wouldn’t want to be Robin? And the best part is, you can wear these for an afternoon of fun any weekend of the year, not just at Halloween.
Unusual Superheroes for Father’s Day
Maybe your dad is more the sarcastic, edgy type? Is he a huge fan of darker heroes? Is he the King of Dark Humor? Then maybe you should consider a Deadpool themed Father’s Day gift, combining his superhero status while acknowledging his affinity for weird, offbeat humor. Buy the movie and get him the Deadpool costume so he can crack jokes in style.
If you’re strapped for cash, don’t forgo the gift, simply think simpler. Handmade cards can be pretty impressive if you draw or photoshop a picture of a superhero with your dad’s face superimposed over the real deal. It’s a great way to let him know he’ll always be the superhero in your life.
Happy Father’s Day!
