Fathers are important. They give the child a good start in life, provide security and protection, and most importantly, teach them how to be a “good person.” They are not just providers. They are caregivers.

If you feel getting him a new house or car is the best way to show your love, it’s cool, but kinds words of appreciation and prayers will very well touch the bottom of his heart.
If you are looking for wishes that you can use to tell your dad just how much you love him on his birthday, we’ve compiled over 100 for you.
These are some of the best wishes you can give to your dad on his birthday.
