Messages For Grandfather

Grandpa, Gramps, Papa, Grandad and so on. Whatever you call him, share how special he is to you this Father’s Day.

  • “Happy Father’s Day to the best grandpa in the world!”

  • “You’ve always told me the best stories and the funniest jokes. Always enjoy whenever we get to spend time together.”

  • “I hope you know how much I love and adore you. You’ll always have a special place in my heart.”

Messages For a Father Figure

A father figure doesn’t always mean the traditional dad. It could be your uncle, a family friend, step-dad, a Grandpa, or whoever stepped up into that role. 

  • “Having you in my life has meant more than you could ever know. Happy Father’s Day to my almost dad.”

  • “Thank you for being such an amazing man. I’ll always look up to you.”

  • “Wanted to recognize you on Father’s Day for being a father figure to me. I don’t know where I’d be without you.”

  • “You’re the father figure everyone needs in their lives. I’m lucky to have had you as such a special person in my life.”

If you can’t find the perfect card, make your own. Add personalized stickers, stamps and text for a card as unique as your bond.

Messages For a Father-to-be or First Time Dad

Whether they’re a newbie to the Dad game or about to become one for a second, third or fourth (or maybe more!) time, make this a very special Father’s Day for them. 

  • “You’re a great partner, so I know you’ll make an amazing dad. Our future child is lucky to have you.”

  • “Enjoy this last Father’s Day in peace! Next year there will be a tiny bundle of terror running around.”

  • “Happy 1st Father’s Day. You’re a natural at this.”

  • “This may only be your first Father’s Day, but you’re already a real pro at this.”

Include a photo of their fatherly highlight so far for a card that will be tough to top any other Father’s Day.
