Plan a Memorable Father’s Day Experience
Father’s Day is this Sunday, June 19th. Time to finalize your Father’s Day plans.
In addition to choosing a gift, you might want to plan something to do on Father’s Day. Experiences are memorable and often more fun than just opening a gift. Here are a few things to consider:
- Sports Fans – If your Dad’s a sports fan, get tickets to a game and go together as a family.
- Neighborhood BBQ / Block Party – Be the one on the block to set up an annual Father’s Day BBQ. It’s a great chance to get together with other families and can be fun for everyone. Dad can have a beer with friends while the kids play with their buddies.
- R & R – Don’t fool yourself, Moms aren’t the only ones who like to be pampered . . . many Dads will also enjoy a chance to rest and relax. So consider hiring a private masseuse or sending Dad to the spa.
- The Great Outdoorsman – For Dads who love the outdoors, hiking or biking can make a great day trip. Camping trips can also be a lot of fun. Plenty of people camp right out of the back of a car, so planning a trip can be easier than you might think.
- Arts Lovers – Concert or theater tickets can be a fun treat for everyone. Just remember it’s all about Dad. If he likes classical music, Lady Gaga tickets might not be the best bet. Get tickets to the show, concert or art exhibit that Dad would most enjoy.
- Guy Time – Plan something fun for Dad and his friends. Father’s Day doesn’t necessarily need to mean Dad has to spend the whole day with the family. Sometimes time with the guys is a nice gift – your Dad might enjoy a day of golfing, fishing or even a weekend away with his friends.
Get creative so that Dad also has something to unwrap. Get a box and put anything related to these activities inside then wrap it up with a big bow- instant gift! And don’t forget how meaningful a simple card can be. Dad’s day is the perfect opportunity to let him know all the reason’s that he is a terrific father and how grateful you and your kids are for him.
