1. Do a chore for him, like mowing the lawn or taking out the trash.

2. Take him out for his favorite treat, whether it is sushi or ice cream.

3. Give him a foot rub or back rub. If he likes his back scratched, do that, too.

4. Let him watch a sporting event without interruptions. Offer occasional snack and beverage service.

5. Get outside and get active with Dad. Hit a bucket of golf balls, take a hike or go on a bike ride.

6. Make him his favorite meal. Let him relax while you prepare it, and don't leave him the dishes.

7. Write a song or rap about all of Dad's great qualities. Perform it for him.

9. Make him a gift basket of some of his favorite snacks. Include a fun beverage or two and a note.
