This year Father’s Day is taking place on 16th June. Father’s Day is all about showing Dad how much he is appreciated and spending time with him. The great thing about Father’s Day falling in mid-June is that hopefully there will be some nice weather for you to enjoy; opening up a variety of opportunities for outdoor fun and activities. There are plenty of ways to enjoy the sun this Father’s Day, and even some ideas should it end up being a colder day than expected.
It can often be a struggle thinking of gift ideas for Dad, but we have some suggestions which could help you generate some ideas. Homemade gifts and cards are always appreciated as they show how much love and thought has gone into them without breaking the bank. Get the arts and craft supplies out and paint some pictures or create cards and keepsakes with handprints.
Some other gift ideas which are perfect for Father’s Day include food gifts such as hampers or a home cooked meal especially if he is a foodie.
Hopefully the sun will be shining this Father’s Day and you will be able to enjoy the nice weather. There are tonnes of fun activities you can do outside which will be fun for all the family such as going on a scenic walk or bike ride. If Dad is a keen sportsman or loves to get involved with all sorts of games and activities why not try something like mini golf or go-karting. The key is to ensure everyone will have a good day whilst tailoring activities to the things Dad enjoys. If the weather is not on your side, there are plenty of ways to get involved in indoor activities; why not have a movie night complete with his favourite drinks and snacks.
Preparation is key if you’re planning to go a little further afield this Father’s Day especially if you have younger children. It can seem a daunting task planning a day out with little ones however with the right planning, it can be a fun filled day out for all. Plan ahead to ensure you pack the essentials. If it is going to be warm day make sure you have plenty of water and sun cream; maybe even a change of clothes if you’re heading to the beach. If you’re spending a while in the car, make sure to take some snacks and toys to keep the children entertained.
Food and Drink
Father’s Day can be a great day to enjoy some of Dad’s favourite foods and drinks; this could include going to his favourite restaurant or if that seems a little daunting why not do something a little more relaxed such as going to a food market or packing a picnic. Food markets have a variety of fresh produce which Dad is sure to enjoy, along with everyone else, and tend to be held outside making it the perfect outing on a sunny June day.
