Did you wait until the last minute to get your dad something?
If you’re looking for the perfect thing to make your Father’s Day gift or card a little more personal, try adding some of these awesome quotes about dads to your note! You can even print the images I made and turn them into a cool piece of art. You can thank me later for making your dad’s year.
When I searched for these quotes, it turns out, that just like for mothers, fathers are often universally hated in literature. I’ve tried to collect uplifting quotes about dads so we can celebrate the good things about the father’s in our lives and so you can have something amazing to put on your card! Always looking out for you, I am. 🙂
