Dads, grandfathers and father figures help guide us through life and ask for so little in return. That’s why we dedicate a whole day to celebrating all they do for us, which falls on the third Sunday of each June in the U.S., this year on June 18. If you're looking for a way to recognize someone who offers paternal support in your life, check out our recommendations below!
