My Dad has recently shown a fascination with space and NASA. Long story short, Christmas is coming up and my plan is to surprise him with an all expense paid trip to Florida for 4 days with passes to the Kennedy Space Center. I’d schedule it around a launch so he would be able to see it in person. As well as checking out the area a bit since we’re there.
Which is where I need your help! I want to coordinate hints with presents that slightly hint at the trip. For example, I picked out a NASA tshirt, a space shuttle plush toy, assorted astronaut ice cream, socks that have planets and a rocket on them, mug that says “coolest dad in the galaxy,” a map/atlas of florida, and luggage tags. And the final gift I’m thinking will be a letter that puts all the clues together and would include the plane tickets, car rental agreement, hotel confirmation, and the admission tickets in an envelope.
Can anyone give me ideas on what hints to use??
Thank you so much!! Any type of help is appreciated!! I don’t really have that “creative” part of the mind... whether it be a rhyme or dad joke-y type hint, it doesn’t matter!
Future wife was getting ready for work and put on these socks that I hadn't seen before. I asked what they were and she said they were supportive socks... I immediately grabbed one out of her drawer and put it on my hand like a sock puppet and spoke with a high-pitched muppet voice.
Puppet: You look nice today. Puppet: You're going to have a great day. Puppet: You can do it! Her: What are you doing? Puppet: Being supportive. Me: <laughs> Her: Oh my God.
She was getting ready for a birthday party and comes running in:
Her: "Dad I can't find any socks to wear, and my favorite pair has a hole in it."
Me: "Well don't throw them away you can wear them to church on Sunday."
Her: "Huh, why?"
Me: "Because they're hole-y."
Her: "Uuuuhhh, daaaad."
I feel proud.

Today my wife and I decided to go to the store when she got home from work for stir-fry supplies. I hadn't gone anywhere all day, so I had to grab my shoes and socks. I guess I'd misplaced one of my tiny screwdrivers from my toolbag and it had ended up inside a shoe. It plopped out into my palm when I tried to shake out the shoe, which prompted me to turn to my wife and exclaim, "Phew! That was a close call! I almost really screwed up my foot!" She gave me a look that said 'I am way too tired to deal with this nonsense'. Stir-fry was fantastic, though.
She's related to me, my wife, and her 2 sisters.
Anyway the joke I made tonight-
My in-laws had to the 2 older girls while we were at the hospital, and got home tonight. I looked down and realized I had a hole in one of my socks, and said "guess it's time to throw this one away."
My father in law said, "yeah. I've been getting holes in my socks and have been throwing them away, too."
I said, "Left and right?"
Years ago I used to use a LexisNexis database of companies that would give corporate information like name, address, and general business description. While most of them were pretty bland, there were a bunch of them with some really cheesy puns, and over a few years I built quite a collection.
Today I share with you "NEXIS IS RIDICULOUS.txt":
Nurse: Aren't you hot in there?
Grandpa: I haven't gone to hell just yet.
Nurse: laughs Where are your feet?
Grandpa: At the end of me legs.
This was in 1998. He was bundled up in some blankets, and the nurse was about to change his socks. And yes, he said 'me legs'. Not sure if that qualifies as a dad joke exactly, but it's a fond memory.
I took a drink of coffee the other morning and it nearly knocked my socks off.
Me: What the heck did you do to this coffee? Wife: Oh, I forgot to tell you that the coffee is strong this morning. I guess it's because the filter was... ripped.
So one day, I was kneeling in my living room looking for a pair of socks in a pile of clean laundry. I sort of had my head hunched down and my arms stretched out in front of me.
My Dad walks in to the room and says: "Brain13, I think Mecca is the other way."
This was like 3 or 4 years ago now, but it still cracks me up.
