Father’s Day is approaching, which might mean that you’re on the hunt for just the right way to show the dad in your life some love. Well, it so happens that Father’s Day is a pretty big deal at our Phoenix salvage yard, too. In fact, we’re a third-generation, family-run business, and realize full-well how important it is to show the dads, or dad-type figures, in your life the proper appreciation. Need some inspiration? We’ve got a few ideas.
Take a little time.
Forget the tie. Forget the grill brush. How about an afternoon together instead? Author Rick Warren said, “Time is your most precious gift because you only have a set amount of it. You can make more money, but you can’t make more time. When you give someone your time, you are giving them a portion of your life that you’ll never get back. That is why the greatest gift you can give someone is your time.” Tag along with him in his favorite summer afternoon activities, or ask him to join you in yours. Go to lunch together, go shopping, or go swimming. You won’t regret it.
And then, get to work
Chances are that the father in your life could use a little help with some cleaning tasks around his home. Giving the fridge shelves and drawers a deep cleaning can help keep Dad from coming in contact with nasty bacteria (and don’t forget under the fridge, as well). Wiping down the screens, window sills, and window and door tracks can keep dust and pollen from blowing in through the windows. And when was the last time those ceiling fans and ceilings were wiped down? Keeping up with some of these more heavy-duty cleaning tasks can help keep him healthy and comfortable. Come by Davis Salvage and pick up some of our high-quality cleaning rags and then get to work on a few of those to-do items on Dad’s list. We have a variety of rags for any project you need to tackle, from terry cloth, to flannel, to cheesecloth.
Spruce it up
If your dad is more “mature” in his years, and his home is aging right along with him, then maybe a little updating is in order. Consider hitting the bathroom first with a new coat of paint in a fresh color. Then check out the drawer pulls and cabinet hinges, and see if perhaps a trip to our Phoenix metal supply company is in order. Same goes for the kitchen – sometimes the presence of new hardware can brighten up the entire space. We carry a vast array of decorative metals of high quality, and we’re betting that you and Dad will find a few things that fit your style and budget.
And then, relax
After all your hard work, you and Dad deserve to relax with a favorite beverage or two. Could he use a new patio chair? Or would he like a hammock? Or perhaps a hefty supply of his favorite music, snacks, and drinks to relax with?
For some reason, the dads we know can be a little tricky to shop for. However, with our help, we believe you can show the dad you love just how much you appreciate him, and make this a Father’s Day he won’t soon forget.
