So you’ve got your Father’s Day card all picked out, that’s great – but what are you going to write inside? Here are some ideas on how to make you dad feel extra special this Father’s Day!

Zero in on Daddy’s Hobbies

Think about your dad. What are his passions or hobbies? Does he like golf? Or fishing? Or woodworking? maybe something less cliché? In any case consider writing something that has to do with that hobby of his. Here are some ideas:

  • Dad, you’re a terrible golfer, but a wonderful father.
  • Dear daddy, I always thought you were reel cool!
  • Dear father, I wish you cared for your children as much as you care for your homebrewed beer.

Funny Father’s Day card greetings

Let’s face it, dads are funny. They can be clumsy, awkward, hilariously incompetent. Dads snore, burp and belch. This is just how they are. Why not use all that comedic potential in the card we give dad on Father’s Day? Skip the heartfelt and emotional – go with a joke. But make it personal and specific – not just a run of the mill pun. But if push comes to shove you can always use one of our personal favorites:

  • Happy Farter’s Day!!!
  • Dad, I donut know what I’d do without you.
  • Look, you are my father
