    Do His Chores

    While chores at home may not be as gender defined as they used to be, certain chores are still divvied up. For example I mow the lawn and take care of a lot of the outside stuff. I also do the grocery shopping for our family. Just like on Mother's Day when we should give mom a break on that stuff, why not give dad a break on a chore.

    Tools, (Doesn't Have To Be Expensive)

    When you think of tools, sometimes you think of expensive power tools.  That doesn't have to be the case. Ask dad what he needs more of. Drill bits are always a good idea, tape measures, and replace smaller hand tools that have gone missing.
