Every year, National Parents Day is celebrated on the fourth Sunday of July. In 1994, President Clinton signed this holiday into law to recognize, uplift and support every parent raising a child. While still a relatively new holiday, the custom of honoring our parents belongs to the ages. Hickory Farms has a few suggestions for making July 27 a memorable day for your family.
- Parents of young children know how much they adore your time and attention. Nothing delights kids more than to see you unplug your electronic devices and devote your focus on them. Making great childhood memories for them to reflect on in later years is a priceless gift only you can give.
- Have a spontaneous family picnic, even if it’s only in your backyard. Our Spiral Sliced HoneyGold Ham is a great ingredient to add in a hardy sandwich, or just put out a spread and pair it with some of our delicious fruit and cheeses. After the feast, engage your children by asking them to say or write down three things they really appreciate about you as a parent. Then, reciprocate by letting them know three things you appreciate about them.
- If your parents are older, surprise them with a special gift box like our Hickory Tropical Delight from our selection of gourmet wine gifts. Make sure you stick around for a toast and some laughs as you share fond memories from your childhood.
- Take Mom and Dad out to dinner at their favorite family restaurant. Make a reservation at a venue you’ve all gathered at for special moments in the past. At this time, don’t let Dad pick up the check! Make sure they both realize how grateful you are for their loving direction over the years.
This year, celebrate Parents Day by spending the entire day with your family. Remember that Hickory Farms will always be here to make the occasion a real treat with our gourmet food baskets.
