10 Fun Ways to Celebrate Dad This Father's Day
For many us, figuring out how to celebrate dad on Father's Day stresses us out. Not this year! This is the year you find the perfect way to show your father exactly how much he means to you and your family. Use this list of gift ideas and Father's Day activities to make Sunday, June 18th memorable for the special father or father figure in your life.
Start With an Attitude of Gratitude
Everyone loves feeling appreciated and dad is no exception. Your father may be a man of few words, but that doesn't mean he wouldn't enjoy hearing or reading your words of gratitude on everything he has done for you. Celebrate Father's Day by writing him a thank you note or ode about his parenting prowess. Or, gather up your siblings and create a video where you each tell him what you love and appreciate about him most. An inexpensive token of gratitude can have a major impact on dear dad.
Satisfy His Sweet Tooth
Think about your dad's favorite sweet treats. Cupcakes, ice cream, decadent chocolates…whatever your father favors for dessert, make it readily available to him on Father's Day.
Get Active Together
June often provides gorgeous, sunny weather for outdoor activities. Get moving outside together; hike, bike ride or even take a casual family stroll. Don't forget to pack some snacks to keep your energy levels up.
Plan a Picnic With Pops
Perhaps you'd rather just pack up dad's favorite snacks without actually planning any physical exertion – a picnic proves the excellent solution. Take pops to a nearby park or even spread out a blanket in the backyard and dig into a basket of sweet and savory bites.
These days, it's pretty easy to find a box subscription for almost any interest or hobby. Think about what your dad is into. Cooking, clothing, beer – whatever it is he enjoys, you can gift him a box subscription so he has something to look forward to each month when its delivered to his doorstep.
Treat Filled Slippers
Maybe dad is ready for a new pair of comfortable slippers; use Father's Day as an opportunity to create a "slipper gift basket" of sorts. Fill each slipper with assorted sundries that your father will appreciate. Toiletries, snacks, lip balms – get creative as you fill up the inside of his new house shoes.
Printable Fill in the Blanks
Maybe you're not looking to celebrate your dad, but instead want to honor your children's dad. The Internet is chock full of free, fill-in-the-blank printable. Gather up the kids and ask them for answers to the questions about their dad on your chosen sheet. Be sure to write the name and age of each child on the printout for posterity.
Host A Party in His Honor
An impromptu bash is a great way to Celebrate Father's Day. Create a party menu based on his favorite foods. Opt for a casual outdoor barbecue or a formal five-course meal; whatever you choose, make it all about how dad likes to dine and he will love it.
Create a Keepsake Photo Book
Personalized photo books are perfect for a dad who likes to take a nostalgic stroll down memory lane. Solicit favorite shots from the whole family to put together an album that captures everything your family is about.
Let Him Choose
If you find you're still struggling to find the perfect present for your pops, you may want to consider giving him the gift of choice. Simply ask him exactly what he'd like to do to Celebrate Father's Day – and then make it happen!
