  • Make it about your dad – When selecting a song, think about your father. A song from his favorite artist or album. He'll be touched by the thought and it will be an even more beautiful moment for the two of you.
  • Confer with your father – Ask your dad what he would like. Even if he acts all macho, it will most likely melt his heart to know that his daughter is thinking of him in such special ways. Ask his opinion.
