Father’s Day is on Sunday, June 19th this year and it’s time to show your dad how much you appreciate him.
Here are 9 ways to show dad some love this Father’s Day, or any other day of the year if you want!
Catch a Big One
Fishing is a great way to spend time with dad in the great outdoors. Even if you don’t catch a big one, you’ll spend quality time together and bond. Buy dad a special lure or fly and check out his favorite fishing hole.
Don’t forget the sunscreen, bug spray, and water and create fish tales you’re sure to recount for years to come.
Go for a Tasting
Whether dad likes beer or wine, a tasting is a great way to get out with dad and have some fun. You might discover you share more in common with him than you thought or at least you’ll understand what makes him tick.
Grab a few of the best and bring them home so that he’ll remember your outing every time he decides to enjoy them.
Hit the Links
If dad’s a golfer, spend the day with him doing 18 holes or just spend an afternoon hitting a bucket or two of balls. If his game could use improvement, why not invest in a few golf lessons so he can learn new things to up his game?
Dedicate your time and attention to dad and recount some of your most memorable moments together. Let him know what you’ve learned from him and how valuable that knowledge has been for you.
Alternatively, talk about the funniest times you had together. Even if you live apart, you can Skype or call and chat for a bit.
Go to a Game
If Dad loves his sports, head out to a game together and root for your favorite team. Buy a hot dog, talk about the best and worst players, and how you think the team could improve. Even if you don’t agree on everything you’ll spend time together and have a bit of fun.
Enjoy a Meal Together
Make him his favorite meal. Instead of just doing it once, make it a regular habit, each month make him something he likes, and sit down and share the meal with him. Or, if you aren’t the cooking type, take him to his favorite place.
Enjoy the Great Outdoors
Energetic dads might enjoy a bracing walk or hike in a pristine natural area. Others might value a few nights of camping and idle chatter around the campfire.
If nothing else, set up a couple of lawn chairs in the backyard and have a barbecue. Play a game of badminton, toss around a Frisbee, or play cards.
Look at Cars
Is dad a gear head who loves anything with an engine? Make it a day trip and drive to a great car show to see classics or hit the showrooms to scrutinize the latest models. Talk about what you like and dislike, your driving experiences, and your favorite vehicles. Don’t forget to checkout the Newport Car Museum, too!
Take In Live Music
You can find live music almost anywhere. Outdoor festivals, concerts, and even bands in local restaurants or bars can offer an enjoyable way to get out and share time with dad.
If dad isn’t into going out, ask him to play some of his favorite music. Music conjures up memories, so ask him when he first heard the songs.
