If you are looking to save this Father’s Day but still make your dad feel special, we have a few ideas for you!
Remember it is really the thought that counts and because your dad is your dad, we are sure he will very loved by whatever you decide to gift him.
10. A Day Off
Yup, that’s right! This year, give dad the thing he wants the most: time! Whether it means he gets full control of the remote, he chooses dinner or the lawn gets mowed by the neighbor kid — let your dad do his thing.
That’s right, an IOU. This can be for anything. Maybe you have future plans of purchasing your dad a vacation, or pricier item that maybe you are saving for.
8. Toss A Pig Skin In The Backyard
Throwing a football around in the backyard may not be the most exciting thing but it may be just what your dad wants this Father’s Day. Sometimes it is really the simple things in life that mean the most.
7. Watch A Movie On Netflix
Maybe your dad is a film buff, so why not ask what his favorite movie is and pop a squat on the couch! Make popcorn, grab some drinks and enjoy each other’s company.
6. Go Through Your Family Ancestry
Get a free trial of Ancestry.com for 14 days to discover your dad’s roots! Not only can the whole family be involved but it also may lend itself to a few surprises.
5. Go For A Drive
Spending Father’s Day doesn’t have to be a big event. And sometimes, all dad really wants is to go for a drive! Whether you pick a destination or not, sometimes just driving in the open, fresh air, tunes blasting and good company is all dad really wants.
4. Bring Your Own Your Own Barbecue
You have heard of bring your own beer but have you heard of bring your own barbecue? Host a party for your dad and let him be in charge of the grill. Invite friends and family to bring whatever they want to decide to throw on the grill. Not only will your dad be delighted with various meats, he will be executing his skills for a crowd!
3. Breakfast In Bed
While this may be a Mother’s Day trope, that doesn’t mean dad doesn’t appreciate scrambled eggs, bacon and some fresh OJ. Treat your dad to breakfast in bed as soon as he flutters open his eyes. Make sure to add a homemade card with puns although we must warn you, the OJ may get sprayed everywhere if you are too punny!
2. DIY Project
Maybe your dad has been gunning to fix a leak in the basement, wants to vacuum every inch of the house or swears there is something in the attic that needs to be checked out. Whatever it may be, volunteer your services to whatever your dad puts his mind to. And who knows? Maybe you both will learn something about each other. Or at the very least, about pest control!
1. Learn A New Skill Together
And last but not least, learn something new together! With the wonderful world of YouTube, sit down with dad and decide on something you both would have an interest in learning. It doesn’t have to be rocket science but it can be a perfect opportunity for you to not only bond with your favorite dad by creating a new memory together.
