With Father's Day rapidly approaching, you probably want to start getting prepared now instead of doing everything at the last minute. If you're buying a gift, you want to give yourself time for delivery (if ordering online, of course) and browsing freedom to find the perfect option for dad. If you're planning on purchasing a card that is just right, you're also going to want to do that soon before all the good ones are taken. You might even want to equip yourself with a super personalized message to text your dad on the morning of June 19 — something that will make him smile, remind him of why he loves being a dad, and give him a good laugh. If you're struggling to come up with something, look no further because there are a bunch of ideas for funny Father's Day text messages you can send to your dad.

A cute and meaningful text is great to send in the morning on Father's Day, especially if you aren't going to be able to see your dad in person — it's just a nice way for him to start the day. Even if you do plan on spending the day with your dad, it's pretty adorable to send him a message that you know will go a long way. And hey, it's a free alternative to spending a couple of bucks on a card, so there's always that! Below are a few hilarious text message ideas to send your dad (or you can also write them in a blank card if you want to go the old-fashioned route).


I smile because you are my father. I laugh because there is nothing you can do about it.

This is simple, cute, and guaranteed to put a smile on your dad's face. It's not overly sentimental and it's funny. Pretty much perfect!


Dad, your father’s day gift is another year of not having to pay for my wedding.

Happy Father's Day — without me, this day wouldn't mean much.

Hey, it's true! Without you, your dad likely wouldn't even be celebrating Father's Day. Sure, this is a day all about him and how lucky you are to have him, but it's also about you makinghim a father, you know?


I hope this Father's Day is as fun as before you had kids.

Let's be real: your dad's life was probably completely different before you and your siblings came into his life. This text is a funny nod to that.


Happy Father's Day to someone who inexplicably loves signing his name in each of his text messages.

I may be all grown up, but I'm still your financial burden.

If you still turn to your dad whenever you really need money or if he hands you some bills whenever he sees you, you are definitely not alone. Why not make a joke about it in your Father's Day text?


I know I'm a handful, but that's why you have two hands. Happy Father's Day!

Are you constantly asking your dad for help? Have you been kind of a trouble maker as his child? If so, this is the perfect text to send.


Happy farter's day... I mean Father's Day!

If your dad is one of those dads who is constantly making gross jokes or just, like, farting out in the open, send him this text. It will definitely get a laugh out of him. Sometimes the silliest messages are the best!


You're the best dad I could have ever gotten stuck with.

Hey, you may not have had a choice in who your dad was, but you did get lucky to to land him as a father. Remind him of that with a cute joke.


I think being your child is enough of a gift... Happy Father's Day!

No money for a gift? No time for a gift? Send this text. It's a half-joke because we all know it's kind of true.
