Special days are made to recognize and celebrate the lives of important people in our lives. One of these is Father’s day. There are thousands of things you can do to show your love and appreciation for your father. If you haven’t yet decided on what you want to do, this article is for you. We’ve listed down 7 fun things you can do for father’s day.
Treat him to a scrumptious meal
Food must never be overlooked when it comes to celebrating Father’s day. Just as the famous saying goes, the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. This won’t ever fail as eating together develops and strengthens bonds between people. It is also a good way to relax because eating delicious food helps your mind calm down.
You can either go out and eat in a fancy restaurant or bring the restaurant to the comforts of your home. If you want to cook your favorite cuisine but don’t know how, you can hire a private chef.
If you want a simpler way, you can set up a picnic date instead. Prepare his favorite dishes and snacks, and enjoy the relaxing view of nature. This is an especially great idea if you are on a limited budget.
Try new recreational activities
Father’s day can also be a good time to stretch your body and move around. You have several options to choose from if you prefer outdoor recreational activities, be it on land or on water.
One of the most ideal activities to do on father’s day is hiking. The overwhelming view and atmosphere when hiking is perfect for relaxation. Even better is the feeling you get when you reach the top of the mountain and get to see the breathtaking view. If you are not able to complete the longer trail, you can still make many memories with your dad by completing the shorter trails.
Alternatively, you can also explore the waters by learning to surf or to fish. As a result of these activities, children disengage from the digital world and ultimately reconnect with nature. Having these kinds of hangouts with their kids is very meaningful to all dads.
Have a movie marathon
Dads can be very busy with their work leaving them with no time to finish even a single series. On Father's day, prepare your popcorn and sodas. Play his favorite movie from the start and clear every episode. You can actually let him choose whether to binge watch his favorite series or rewatch his all-time favorite movie.
Watching movies with family is one of the activities which you can enjoy in one sitting. Sharing laughter with your father already means a lot to them. Also, this may be an opportunity to catch up, and share thoughts.
Pamper with a spa day
Hardworking dads also deserve spa days. A simple soothing music, scented candle, and massages will do for them. Share your skin care products with them and let them experience having dewy, clear skin.
If you happen to have the extra budget, you can visit the nearest body spa and avail a full body massage for them. This will greatly help them relax their muscles, and maybe have a sound sleep during and after the session.
Play family games together
Allow your father to show his competitive side by playing against him or much better, by teaming up with him. Even a simple board game will do, but party games could be more fun.
Playing games with your father isn’t only about enjoyment and celebration. It is also about something more meaningful, building a deeper connection with him.You can also try solving puzzles together, or even look for his favorite video game and play it all over again.
Have a karaoke night
Have a quick throwback to song hits during his times. Sing it out loud together and let him showcase his singing skills while remembering the old times.
You can also do a quick and short performance stage to dedicate a special song for him. It would be a good experience and opportunity to fully express your emotions and gratitude towards him on this special day.
Campsites are not necessary if you are planning to go camping. Just your backyard, a tent, and bonfire would be enough. Building your tent together, and spending the whole night there would be a great bond. Marshmallows and barbecues would also be great to satiate your hunger. And what makes a night camp more exciting are the scary stories while surrounding the bonfire.
