Father's Day Activities & Gift Ideas

Father’s Day is around the corner and spoiling that special Dad is not always easy. It’s not about how much you spend, but rather how much he feels appreciated that day. It’s always great to ask him if there is something specific he’d like but the typical response is “nothing.” A common feedback from men is for this day to be STRESS FREE above everything. Depending on your man’s personality, that can consist of doing very little and simply relaxing or going on an amazing adventure. That’s for you to asses and hopefully some of these ideas will help you along the way.


MEAL TIME: The quickest way to his heart his through his stomach and one thing is certain, your man wants to eat good on his special day. Waiting in line for hours for a table may not be his ideal celebration so find somewhere less crowded or make a reservation in advance if at all possible. You can even order to go and eat in the comfort of your own home or somewhere romantic, such as a park or a beach. Last but not least, if your man prefers to just be in, you can always treat him to some amazing home cooking.

ACTIVITY OF HIS INTEREST: Let’s be honest, not all of your hobbies line up with that special man’s interests. For this coming weekend, let it be something he truly enjoys! If he loves being in and away from the world then definitely don’t plan some huge outing that will take up the whole day. Treat him to something secluded that will help him relax and enjoy his day. If there’s nothing more rejuvenating than the great outdoors than take him somewhere he’s never been before. Offload as much of the planning that you can so that he can simply show up and enjoy his day.
