Father’s Day is coming up on June 20 in the US and I imagine many people are scrambling for the perfect words to accompany a card for their dad. Some people find these words easily, as a friend of mine who constantly says her parents are her heroes (which inspired me to make a card to that effect as well). Other people have trouble finding the right message, and they settle on things like “Have a very special day.” I feel that’s fine (your loved ones will know what you mean—will see the love behind that wish). But if you do want something different, here are some suggestions for messages from children to their father:

Dear Dad, you’re the bestest! (a more fun version of You’re the best/Best Dad Ever)

I’ll always remember the times we shared last summer when, among other things, you bought me fifteen books and encouraged me to pursue my passion for writing (a message where you get specific)

Hi Dad, have a very special Father’s Day! (as I said, this is okay, really)

Happy Father’s Day to the most amazing dad I could ever ask for!

Happy Father’s Day! Thank you for always being there for me! / for always knowing how to be there for me when I need it most

Thank you for encouraging my dreams!

Thank you for making a better fighter out of me!

To a Dad Extraordinaire, Happy Father’s Day!

And here’s a card and some mugs for Father’s Day. Note that they work for birthdays as well (you just change the message in the template). The main design element includes three customizable photos seen through transparent DAD letters. Also note that you can customize all the text as well. Enjoy!
