In a number of countries including the UK, America, and Canada, Father’s Day arrives on the third Sunday in June every year and is the day dedicated to celebrating all the Dads and father figures out there in the world. Like Mother’s Day, it’s a 24-hour opportunity to spoil somebody you love.
What better way to do that than to take them out for the day and spoil them rotten? There are millions of great days out to take advantage of, and with that in mind, here are five ideas that you can use to give your Dad the special day they deserve:
The Great Outdoors
Keep an eye on the weather forecast in the week leading up to Father’s Day, and if the going is good, take him out into the great outdoors and spend the day cycling through the wilderness, taking a boat on the lake or strolling through the woods on a big hike. You may even be able to fit all three activities into the same day if you’re lucky enough to live close to such stunning scenery, or you’re prepared to drive to such a location.
Indulge in Some Culture
If you live in or nearby a big city, why not treat your Dad to a day of culture, from art galleries to museums, find ticket sales for the big shows at the theatre or head to a concert. You can fit in a mixture of these during the course of the day, and many companies will group the activities together and offer discounts for doing so, particularly in big cities such as New York. Do your research on the web and ask around to see what you can get your hands on, and plan a superb Father’s Day filled with culture.
A Sporting Event
Sunday is usually an epic day for sport, and as Father’s Day falls on that particular day, you can treat your Dad to something extra special on his big day and book tickets to a sporting event that you know he’s going to love. Maybe his favorite football team is playing at home that weekend, or he’s been dropping hints that he’s always wanted to go to a basketball match? Check the fixture list and get booking, and see that huge grin appear on his face when he finds out where he’s going. Just be sure to get some souvenirs, such as a team jersey, cap or match programme to keep forever.
Winery and Brewery Tours
Father’s Day is a day of celebration, so why not serve that celebration in a wine or pint glass, and take your Dad on a winery or brewery tour, depending on what their preferred tipple is, of course. There are many great wineries and breweries around, and local businesses that make these incredible beverages love nothing more than to show people around, inform them of the methods and the history, and then show off their goods at the end of the tour. What could be a better gift for Father’s Day than one that ends with a glass of wine or pint of beer at sunset?
