36 Texts To Send Dad On Father's Day That'll Make Him Smile, Laugh, & Feel So Loved

Cue the happy tears, because there are so many things you can, and should, celebrate right now. There are the silly jokes, the life lessons, and the family vacations at the beach that wouldn't have been the same without your dad or the dad figure in your life. There are the nights you went on father-daughter dinner dates or watched an action-packed movie at the theater. Most importantly, there's the person in your life, who may or may not be related to you by blood, but has been there to support you since day one. He deserves a party, a quality breakfast, or one of these texts to send Dad on Father's Day that'll make him smile, laugh, and feel so loved.

Can you agree? Of course. You really don't know what you would do without your dad, and all the advice and guidance he's given you over the years. When you were searching for your first apartment, he asked the questions like, "What amenities come with the place?" and "Are there any utilities included?" After signing your lease, he may have helped you move your belongs and unpack your boxes. Believe it or not, he even taught you how to make his famous macaroni and cheese, so that you'd never go hungry or without a home-cooked meal.

Since then, he's come over when he wants to catch up or share a cup of coffee, and texts you on the reg. He sends you memes, relatable and funny tweets, and pictures from when you and your siblings were little. Occasionally, he'll send you a heartfelt message, too — a quick reminder that he loves you and is so proud of how far you've come.

Those messages always make you smile, reach for the tissues next to your bed, and think, "Wow, I'm incredibly lucky." This Father's Day, you want to return the love and send your dad a message that'll make him laugh or feel the same way. Here are a few I think will do the trick.
