How to support someone dreading Father's Day

father's day for those dreading it

The push for Father’s Day has begun – our inboxes, news feeds and social channels are overflowing with ways on how to honor and celebrate your father this year. But for those who are grieving the loss of their father or for fathers grieving the loss of their child, it can be triggering to see ad after ad of what can be a painful reminder.

COVID-19 has swept across the globe, killing nearly 600,000 people in the US alone and disproportionately affecting men. As we enter the 15th month of the pandemic, this Hallmark holiday will certainly bring a different meaning to lots of people this year.

Our hope is that Good Grief can fill that void when you don’t know what to say or do and will encourage people to reach out and support one another in a meaningful way, especially during Father’s Day, a day that comes with so many mixed emotions.

Below are a few of our Father's Day care package recommendations. All of them are ready to ship, so supporting someone has never been easier. You can also select a card and add a message, which we will handwrite ourselves to add a personal touch.
