Father’s day comes and goes year in and year out. Some years we triumph with a fantastic gift that goes down a storm. And some years our gifting choices leave a little to be desired. So with that in mind, today we are sharing some unique and interesting ideas to treat your dad to something really special for his next father’s day.
Sports Mad Dad
Most dads love some sort of sports, so think about the type of sport your dad loves and think about the type of sporting gift you think your dad would really appreciate. Perhaps it’s a ticket to the biggest soccer game of the year (a bit of forward planning will be necessary for that one), or perhaps it is a season ticket to watch his favorite basketball team.
Perhaps your dad is into baseball, in which case, why not get him something a little bit different. Why not make your dad chuckle with a basketball bobbleheads of his favorite baseball player, or even of himself with his favorite player.
Perhaps your dad is into the great outdoors so why not think about how you can organize a day out with your dad in the fresh air doing something that he really enjoys. You can turn up on father’s day morning, the car already packed and ready with fishing equipment or walking boots and a handmade picnic for the two of you, for all the family to spend the day together.
Keep in check with weather reports in the lead up to father’s day, as if you have a dad who loves being outdoors, the activity you plan will greatly rely on the weather. If your activity leaves you at the mercy of mother nature then make sure you have a Plan B neatly tucked up your sleeve, just in case.
Maybe your dad is the sort of dad that is always wanting to try something a little bit different, and maybe even a little bit crazy. Listen to the things he says he’d love to try and see if you can’t organize something completely different for your dad to try. Perhaps he’s always wanted to drive a racing car around a track, do a bungee jump or have a hot air balloon ride. So put a bit of thought into the kind of unique experiences you think your dad would just love.
Chilled Out Dad
Perhaps your dad loves nothing more than just being at home and relaxing with his family, in which case why not look at the more simple things that your dad would really enjoy. If you’re good at cooking, look at preparing his favorite meal for him and the rest of the family. Organize to watch his favorite movie with him afterward and just generally indulge him in a good old fashioned day of relaxation and fun with all the family together, just chilling at home and enjoying each others family. Sometimes it’s just the simple things that make our dads happy.
