Hey there.
I'm 18 and this year is the second year that I've had my stepfather.
I only met him about 2 years ago, so we don't have a long history.
I have NO idea what to do for him for father's day.
He doesn't fish, hunt, camp, or do 'manly' things...
He just works a lot and eats lotsa pizza.
Haha I'm making him sound bad...I really love him. He is truly my dad...
He calls me his daughter and I have a hard time calling him dad (though I'd like to), but he is.
I'd like him to know how much I appreciate him, especially since I go off to college in 2 months.

I'm so clueless...do you guys have any ideas?Huh

What if you put together a basket that included some raw pizza dough (which you can get from a grocery store, or from a pizzeria) a can of sauce, a chunk of cheese and some containers of spices, or a can of mushrooms (or any toping item) and it can be a Stepfather-daughter bonding activity where you guys make some pizza together.

Or maybe put some movies in there too... so you can make the pizza, then all watch movies together.  If he works so much, I am sure he would like a moment to relax with the family & enjoy that pizza!

What does he do for work?
Does he spend time in his car?  Maybe some sort of accessory..
If you are leaving for college soon, he won't get to see you as much.. maybe a photo collage of your mom, him & you? 

Do more of what makes you happy.

You are very fortunate to know how you feel about him.  Must be hard to get a new Dad at 16.  You could write him a letter telling him how you feel about him and frame it in a frame that you decorate.  That would be cheap enough and something that he could cherish.  ~laffin~  you could even decorate it with little clay pizza slices or something.  It would be simple but very meaningful.
