We’ve got some good news: No matter your age, your style, or your relationship with your dad, a good old-fashioned card is still the ultimate Father’s Day gift. It’s guaranteed to win him over and earn you plenty of brownie points. Oh, and it won’t break the bank, either.
Of course, picking out a card is only half the battle, especially if you’re wondering what to write in a Father’s Day card this year. Finding the right words to express your love is definitely the trickiest part. 😅
Luckily, you’re in the right place. Here, you’ll find tons of Father’s Day messages and wishes that any dad will love, including the most meaningful Father’s Day quotes. You might choose to keep things simple with a message like, “I’m so proud to be your kid,” or lighten things up with a dad joke (“Happy Great-Excuse-to-Go-Golfing Day!”). Or you could go full-on, whip-out-the-tissues-level sentimental like Ree Drummond did in a message to her husband Ladd last year. “Happy Father’s Day to my father-in-law, whom I love, my own dad, whom I adore, and my husband Ladd, pictured here with our first child,” she wrote on Instagram. “Strong, protective, serious, introspective, in awe of his kids. And covered in dirt and sweat, but my babies never minded. Love you, Chuck, Dad, and Ladd!
