You ever look at your calendar and wonder “how TF did Father’s Day come so fast?” (No offense, Dad.) Unlike the mothers, dads unfortunately have one day a year, which is why you need to make sure it’s their best day. Shopping for your papa isn’t that easy, I mean, looking back, how many times did my dad really need argyle socks. Nevertheless, dads deserve love for raising, protecting, teaching, nurturing, advising, their young princes and princesses into kings and queens. Whether it be your bio-dad, grandfather, uncle, big brother, neighbor up the block who always gave you money for Mr. Softee because your mom “don’t work hard to spend money on no damn ice cream”– something special HAS to be done. No clue what to do? Don’t worry, I got you. Check out a few things you could do to show your old man that he’s the man on Father’s Day.

Crown Your Father
This digital experience will have all of your followers looking at your dad like royalty, look at Nick Lachey! As detailed by their site, “The “Crown Your Father” mobile experience was developed by Anomaly in collaboration with UNIT9. The digital workshop where the portraits are created was built mobile-first so users can personalize and share their digital portraits with family and friends. Five different illustrators, each specializing in a different style of art, were engaged to create the backgrounds for the “Crown Your Father” experience. Those illustrators include: Chris Buzelli (realistic), Corey Brickley (modern), Doug Sirois (illustrative), Jacquie Boyd (pop) and Tracie Ching (graphic).” You can click here to Crown your dad for Father’s Day.
