The Perfect Father’s Day Gift for Every Father

June 14, 2021
The Perfect Father’s Day Gift for Every Father

When you are a kid, finding a suitable gift for Father’s Day can be a struggle. You want to get Dad something he’ll enjoy, but few young people can afford a new set of golf clubs or a shiny new grill, so you end up settling once again for the standard necktie and socks.

And even after you become an adult, that struggle for the perfect Father’s Day gift often continues, albeit in a slightly different way. When it comes to expressing your love and appreciation for everything Dad has done, more “stuff” doesn’t cut it.

If your father is like most, he’d tell you that the greatest gift you could give him would be for you to abide by the values and principles he taught you and share them with your children.

We may go to great lengths to protect and pass on our family’s financial wealth. Still, very few of us take the time to even document, much less preserve, our family’s legacy. The stories, values, insights, and life lessons of our parents, grandparents, and those who came before them— are typically lost forever when a beloved father figure passes away.

With this in mind, give your father a tribute to the role he has played in your life by preserving his legacy for generations to come with a Family Wealth Legacy Passage.

Family Wealth Legacy Passages: Sharing Your Family’s Story

As your Personal Family Lawyer®, we know that estate planning isn’t just about protecting and passing on your financial wealth and tangible assets when you die. When done right, estate planning supports you to pass down the most precious assets of all—your life stories, lessons, insights, and values, intentionally.

We do this with a unique service we’ve developed known as Family Wealth Legacy Passages. We will personally guide your father to create a customized recording to share his most insightful memories and experiences. We will provide you with the recording digitally to rest assured it will survive long after he—and even after you—are gone. The Family Wealth Legacy Passage is at no additional cost to you since it is part of each estate plan.

Including Family Wealth Legacy Passages in your estate planning ensures the most valuable assets never get lost and the process of documenting them is as easy and convenient as possible. We use a series of helpful questions and prompts, which makes the process both easy and enjoyable.

Many of our clients tell us that going through this process helps rekindle life moments they would otherwise not share with their loved ones during their lives. This unique process can enrich your family with something far more valuable than material wealth. After the interview, many of our clients have told us they feel as if they’ve become better, more conscious parents along the way. And the best part is, it takes less than an hour.

In the end, your family’s most precious wealth is not money, but the memories you make, the values you instill, and the insights and lessons you hand down. If left to chance, these assets are likely to be lost forever.
