Father’s Day, also called Men’s Day, is about as old as Mother’s Day, but has only gained popularity in recent decades. In Germany, Father’s Day always takes place on Ascension Day, while other countries have a fixed date for it.

While the purpose of Mother’s Day is to focus on the mother, to pamper her and thank her for everything, Father’s Day is rather interpreted as a day when men want to be among themselves. It’s no coincidence that the term Father’s Day is associated with a bunch of men of different ages who go on a hike together, dragging a well-filled handcart behind them and ending up just as full as the handcart. But of course, these are only isolated cases. Most families have other plans and ideas for Father’s Day. As a rule, the kids and mom think together about how they can make their dad happy on this special day.

A book from Meminto Stories - one of the best ideas for father's day

A Meminto Stories book is not an ordinary book. Not one you read or leaf through and then put on the shelf. And perhaps never touch it again. A Meminto book is not even written at the moment it is given as a gift. Because it is written by the recipient himself. I beg your pardon? You get a book as a gift that you still have to write yourself? 

Exactly, that is the idea of Meminto Stories. For example, if you give a Meminto childhood book as a Father’s Day gift, then the father can record special experiences with his children in a book with the support of Meminto. And if grandpa gets such a book as a Father’s Day gift, then he can write about his life. To do this, simply select the “Life book” category when ordering the book at www.meminto.com.

Or others who are involved in the creation of the book, because, for example, they can also say something about a topic or have a different perspective on it.
