With Father’s Day coming up on Sunday, June 18th, it’s time to start thinking of ways to recognize the special man in your life. If you don’t know what to get the man who has everything, why not give him something that cannot be bought or sold? We’re talking about the gift of time, it will be a ton of fun and you’ll be creating memories together. Here are a few ideas on how to spend a little quality time with dad.
Let Dad Pick. Father’s Day is the perfect time to let your husband or dad know you appreciate what his hobbies mean to him and want to learn more about them. Let dad pick his favorite hobby and spend the day with him. If your dad loves to golf, take him to the driving range for the afternoon. If he loves baseball, snag tickets to a local ballgame. If he loves gardening, pick up a shovel and help out.
Give Dad a Laugh. Have your kids fill out a funny questionnaire and spend time reading it together. The funniest things come straight from the mouths of kids, and he’ll love you put in the effort on his behalf. This All About My Dad Printable Questionnaire is such a simple way to give a dad an extra-special gift for Father’s Day.
Unplug with Dad. Father’s Day is the perfect time to slow down and take a long walk, jog, or drive with dad. The best talks and walks take place when no one else is around, and all electronics are out of sight. Pack a picnic and make a lunch date following your get away with dad.
Game Night. Does your dad love games? Whether its board games, video games, card games, or sport games, gather his favorites and round up the family for a fun night. Make his favorite snacks and drinks to pair with the evening of games in your Signature home.
Make It Last. Why not go back to the classic “coupon book” that worked so well for us in the past? Make dad a coupon book offering to complete chores around the house, night out with dad, foot rub, or quiet nap time.
Make a Meal. Whether its breakfast in bed or a craft beer and sandwich in the hammock, there’s no better way to say “I love you” to dad than through his stomach. Here are a few simple recipes that will win dad’s heart.
Tunes for Dad. What’s playing nearby? Check local listings for an outdoor music festival or concert your dad might appreciate. Remember snacks and cold water, plus a clean blanket.
Let Dad Rest. Dad would really appreciate no deadlines, no hassles, no chores, no having to fix anything, and no rushing about on this special day.
Say Thanks. Fathers want to be appreciated. Tell him how much you need him. It may sound simple, but your dad loves to be appreciated and would feel like a king with a genuine hug and “Thank You” from you.
