This holiday is the perfect chance to show all the dads in your life just how much you care, and there’s no better way to do that than with pretty paper greeting cards. We love picking out the best Father’s Day cards for the husbands, dads, stepdads, and grandfathers who make our lives better. And there are so many options, from humorous to sweet, to help customize the sentiment for each individual. Make the occasion even more memorable by adding a Father's Day quote. We recommend ordering his card at least a week before Father's Day if you plan to give dad his card in person. If you need to mail his card to him after it arrives, order two weeks in advance to make sure he receives it on time.
