Father’s Day Background & Video Gifts
Father’s Day started as a traditional Catholic holiday in Europe during the Middle Ages, but today it’s celebrated by millions around the world. The holiday acknowledges the impact of fathers on their families and beyond, and is the perfect opportunity to let a dad, grandpa, uncle, brother, or any father figure in your life know that they’re appreciated.
This year, capture love and best wishes for a happy Father’s Day and create a precious digital keepsake for the dad in your life with a group video. Gather video messages from loved ones and play the final video at your Father’s Day gathering for a special surprise the recipient will love.
Can’t celebrate together this year? Email, text, or share the video over social media so that Dad can watch your Father’s Day gift from the comfort of his home.
Ready to get started? Let’s take a look at a few Father’s Day video ideas that make thoughtful and unique gifts your dad will cherish for years to come.
Memory Lane Videos
Have video contributors share a favorite memory of growing up with their dad. Whether it’s bedtime stories, a nice trip somewhere, or a memorable holiday, children and significant others should tell the recipient why this memory is special to them. Grandkids should be included, too!
Take out an old photo album, share a few favorite pictures, and reminisce. The recipient will enjoy hearing about these good times, especially ones he might have forgotten about!
"Thank You" Videos
Simply say “Thank you.” What do you love most about your dad? His sense of humor? His generosity? Let him know!
Think of three things that you’re grateful for or recall a few times in your life when Dad was there when you needed him the most. Spouses can let their husband know how much they’re appreciated both as a father and as a partner.
Kiddo Q & A Videos
If you have little ones at home, ask them questions about their dad or have grandkids answer questions about their grandpa. You’re likely to get some pretty heartfelt and hilarious answers that will warm the recipient’s heart and will be fun to look back on when the kids have grown up. Here are some prompts to get you started:
- What do you love the most about Daddy/Grandpa?
- What is he really good at?
- What is he not so good at?
- What’s your favorite thing to do with Dad/Grandpa?
- What makes him happy?
- What does he do that makes you laugh?
- If you had a million dollars, what would you buy for Daddy/Grandpa for Father’s Day?
Happy Father’s Day: Religious Videos
Recognize a much-loved and respected father figure in your church community. This person doesn't necessarily have to be a priest, minister, or rabbi, but could simply be a beloved elder or active community member. Have this person’s family and other parishioners submit video messages of gratitude and appreciation to create a thoughtful Father’s Day group video.
Play the final video at your church or synagogue service for the recipient and parishioners to see, or email the recipient and contributors the video along with warm wishes for a happy Father’s Day.
Do something special this year to honor and thank a father figure who has played a vital role in your life. Create a group video for an unforgettable gift that lets him know how much he is loved and appreciated.
