Father’s Day is a day where children show their thankfulness and respect for their fathers. I mean, you can’t just give your mother a gift on Mother’s Day, and completely forget about your father on Father’s Day. Fathers can get jealous just as easily as moms can, so we want to make sure that doesn’t happen. Here, I have a list of events, some are common, and others are things most people would never think about (kind of like my other article on Mother’s Day Events):
Go out to eat – This idea is one of the simplest and easiest to plan. All you have to do is ask your father what his favorite restaurant is, and you know exactly where to go. That is, unless their favorite restaurant is the most expensive place in town. In that case, you might want to consider doing extra chores for extra cash or asking what his second favorite place to eat is.
Go on a Hiking Trip – Obviously, this option is only suitable if you live near mountains and if your dad is an outdoorsman. Father’s that love the scent of fresh air, exercising, and nature will definitely perk up to the sound of this idea.
A Sports Game – This choice is best for football-lovers, soccer maniacs, or anybody who loves to play a certain sport. Invite other fathers and friends along to compete in a great sports tournament. The more people, the better, because as they say – the more the merrier.
A Handmade Card – Younger children can make a special handmade card for their father’s. I recommend drawing pictures and/or a comic strip. When I was younger, I would do this all off the time, especially since it gave my dad a laugh, and it costs little to no money at all.
Barbecue Party – This option is similar to the sports game, but all you do here is cook, sit, eat, and talk. This is a cool time where fathers can share old stories, play card games, and spend time with friends without worrying about work.
Do Yard Work – Now, I know most people would be tuned out just by reading the first three words of this paragraph, but it is still a choice worth mentioning. Some dads really don’t like to do yard work, and this is where you can leap in and relieve some stress. Give your father a weekend without yard word work and that will definitely make his day.
Bowling/ Skating Day – Here, you can invite family or friends over to take part in an enjoyable game of bowling. This is an excellent opportunity to unleash and friendly competition that has been missed out on due to work or stress. Or, if your father cannot bowl, you can teach him how to bowl or just take him skating. Skating is fun for pretty much everybody and is twice more enjoyable with more people.
Buy a Videogame – Is your dad a videogame maniac? If he is, than you’d best stick with this Father’s Day option. I’m aware that most dads don’t really have the time to play videogames all day long, but it wouldn’t hurt to research a high rated game that can be played on the weekends.
I hope you found this article to be useful to you, and wish you luck on making your father feel special. Again, you don’t want to just celebrate Mother’s Day not Father’s Day, that’s just not right. Instead, find out what your father likes beforehand, and plan something that makes him feel like the best dad in the world.
