20 Unique Ways to Say ‘Happy Father’s Day’ to My Husband

With Father’s Day right around the corner, it’s time to start making plans to surprise and impress the man you love. After all, he did that for you on Mother’s Day, right? We certainly hope so.

But aside from the expected gift and Father’s Day card, it’s always nice to do a little something extra for your man on the one day a year that celebrates him. Get your mind out of the gutter, we’re not talking about that. We’re talking about the idea of starting off his day with a special little message, one that’s tailor made for him.

Write something on a post-it note and stick it to the bathroom mirror. Send him a text with a sweet message and some kissy face emojis. Scribble a little love note on a piece of scrap paper and slip it into his pocket. It’s not about how you write it or how you give it to him – it’s all about the words.

From sappy love messages to movie quotes, here are 20 classic, sensitive, and funny quotes that make it easy to say happy Father’s Day to your husband.

I Want To Send Him a Father’s Day Message That Will Make Him Laugh

 

We’re always quoting lines from our favorite movies and TV shows. So if your hubby is a movie buff or has a favorite show he likes to binge watch, jot down a great love or marriage quote that you already know he loves.

The movie quotes we love could fill a book, but we’ve included just a few of our favorites. And they’re not just good for father’s day…they’re also perfect for Valentine’s Day, birthdays, anniversaries, and any random Tuesday where you want to show your love (and, in some cases, your sense of humor).

If he’s a fan of Game of Thrones, he’s probably got a thing for Khaleesi (all men do). This quote is from all the way back in season 1, but it’s a classic. If he’s a true fan, he’ll remember Khal Drogo saying to the Mother of Dragons:

“You’re the moon of my life, that’s all I know and all I need to know and if this is a dream I’ll kill the man who tries to wake me.”

In keeping with the GOT theme, we have another favorite spoken by the matriarch Catelyn Stark. It actually refers to the fact that Catelyn and Ned weren’t really in love when they got married. But it’s a good one that describes a lot of relationships we know:

“Love didn’t just happen to us. We built it slowly over the years, stone by stone…it’s not as exciting as secret passion in the woods, but it is stronger. It lasts longer.”

Is your husband a diehard Deadpool fan, comic con geek, or Marvel comics superfan? While this one might not be your typical father’s day message, we love the sentiment and sarcastic humor:

“Your crazy matches my crazy. Big time.”

If your husband is a sci-fi nerd or fantasy geek, there’s a good chance he loves Lord of The Rings. In the first movie, The Fellowship of the Ring, we love the line Liv Tyler as Arwen says to Aragorn:

“I would rather share one lifetime with you than face all the ages of this world alone.”

Maybe your husband is an old movie buff who loves a good Hitchcock film? There are tons of dark and mysterious quotes from the master of suspense, but Vertigo is one of the classics, and it gave us this famous line spoken by Jimmy Stewart to Kim Novak:

“Only one is a wanderer; two together are always going somewhere.”

For the husband who’s more into comedies and lighthearted humor, he might appreciate our favorite quote from Meet the Parents. It’s definitely not your traditional father’s day message, but it’s a funny line that’s sure to make him laugh, especially if the two of you love this Ben Stiller classic:

“I will be watching you and if I find that you are trying to corrupt my first born child, I will bring you down, baby. I will bring you down to Chinatown.”

Is your husband more of a TV junkie than a movie buff? We can never get enough of Seth MacFarlane and Family Guy, and we’d be remiss if we didn’t include this one hilarious (and slightly off-color) remark from Peter Griffin:

“Love is like a fart. If you have to force it, it’s probably crap.”

I Need a Sweet (but Not Cheesy) Way to Send a Happy Father’s Day Message to My Husband

If he’s the sappy, sentimental type who always buys you cards covered with roses, you might want to keep with tradition and choose a greeting card-inspired message that captures the essence of your relationship. Just make sure it shows your personality – and his. We’ve got a few good ones here that we think you’ll like and we know he’ll appreciate:

“When I found you my heart knew it was home”

“Happy Father’s Day to the man who made me a mother!”

“I love raising a family with you. Even though it sometimes means that our nights are actually spent grocery shopping, and our romantic dinner plans turn out to be bowls of macaroni and cheese in front of the TV. Things don’t always turn out exactly how we planned them, but I wouldn’t want it any other way.”

“For the man I love with all my heart…Thank you for all the ways you’ve brought your love and support into our family and for all the happiness you’ve brought to my heart. Thank you for being the special man you are – the man I love so very much.”

“One day is not enough to honor how special of a father you truly are because you are amazing every day of the year.”

“Happy Father’s Day to the man of my heart, the father of our children, the love of my life.”

Happy Father’s Day to My Husband Quotes (Thank You, Pinterest)

It’s no surprise that Pinterest is loaded with inspirational quotes and messages for every single occasion on earth. We searched through dozens of quotes to find a few that are sweet and sentimental, but not necessarily expected. These are a few of our favorites:

“I love my life as your wife”

“I will love you until the day after forever”

“To the world you are a dad…to our family you are the world”

“For the man I love with all my heart…Thank you for all the ways you’ve brought your love and support into our family and for all the happiness you’ve brought to my heart. Thank you for being the special man you are – the man I love so very much.”

“Happiness is being married to your best friend”

They’re quotes that work for any special occasion or no occasion at all. Just add a “Happy Father’s Day” at the end and you’re good to go!

Crying Yet?

If you’re sincere with your words, these are the kinds of messages and quotes that are sure to put a smile on his face. Slip a note like this into his pocket, or write it out on a piece of paper, take a photo of it, and send it to his phone…however you want to send your message is up to you. And just in case you’re the type who loves a rhyming verse, this little poem is the perfect way to show your love:

“I love being your partner, your lover your wife.
Sharing the closeness of our family life
Laughing about funny moments we’ve had
Seeing how caring you are as a dad
I love being a couple and also best friends
Together in solving the problems life sends
Supporting each other in all that we do
and knowing I’m spending forever with you”

It’s His First Year As a Dad…What’s the Best Way to Say Happy First Father’s Day to My Husband?

If it’s his first father’s day as a new dad, you better step up your game. Now that doesn’t mean you have to buy him a lavish gift or spend all day waiting on him hand and foot (though he’ll probably love it if you do). It just means that you’ve got to make sure you take some time to show him just how much you love him.

Just keep one thing in mind – if you set the bar too high you might feel as though you’ll have to keep meeting or exceeding it each year. To play it safe, stick with something simple and meaningful, like this classic quote from Anne Geddes:

“Any man can be a father, but it takes someone special to be a dad.”

Listen ladies, just because it’s father’s day doesn’t mean you have to run out and buy him a brand new set of golf clubs or lavish him with gifts. (Though if you do, we’re sure he won’t complain). But a simple note or a handwritten message that has special meaning to the two of you can be just as memorable.

Maybe it’s a classic love poem. Maybe it’s a line from his favorite movie. Maybe it’s a verse from your wedding song. The point is to make it special. Make it unique.

Make it your own.
