Deciding how to treat your dad on Father’s day can be tricky. Younger children may need a helping hand with a buying or making a gift, putting extra pressure on you to think of something great. But don’t worry.
Here are 10 ideas suitable for every dad, of every age and covering every budget. So spoil him rotten and show your dad just how special he is this Sunday.
1. Get Personal
There is nothing nicer than a gift which has had time and thought put into it and a perosnailsed gift is a great way to do that. Do some research online, there are loads of sites which will add a personal photograph onto a mug or engrave a message into a photo frame. Prices vary so shop around for the best deal.
2. Photo Frame
Even though we are living in an age of the digital camera, there’s something special about finding an old photo which brings back happy memories. Dig out one of your kids and put it in a nice frame. You can spend as little or as much as you like on a frame and it can take pride of place on his desk at work or on his bedside table.
3. Breakfast in Bed
Really spoil him and treat him to his favorite breakfast in bed. Cereal, toast and pancakes all washed down with a coffee will make sure he has a great start to the day. Why not take him up a few of the Sunday newspapers too so he can really enjoy a lazy morning.
4. Make a Homemade Card
This is a great idea if you have young children. Sit them down with a selection of coloured card and felt tip pens and let them create their very own father’s day card. It is sure to be a winner when he opens it on Sunday!
5. Take a Break
If you really want to splash out, book a break away for the whole family this weekend. Warwick Castle have a special father’s day event, ‘Planes, Trains and Automobiles’ so why not treat him to a day exploring this exciting event at the castle and spend a night in a nearby hotel?
6. Bake a Cake
We all know that the way to a mans heart is through his tummy, so bake him something extra special this weekend. Get the kids to help bake something chocolately and yummy for their dad. He will love the effort put it!
Grab a selection of his favorite DVD’s, a blanket, snacks and settle down for the afternoon. Apollo 13, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars and Back to the Future are all classic films he’s sure to love chilling out to.
8. Play a Round of Golf
Many of you out there will have dads who are golf fanatics. Take him for a quick round of golf or an hour on the driving range this Sunday.
9. Make a Splash
If you want something a little more energetic, pack up your towels and swimming costumes and have a family trip to your local pool. Splash, swim and dive the afternoon away for some fun family time together.
10. Get Walking
When was the last time you went for a walk in the park with your partner and kids? Put on your wellies or walking boots, brave the great British weather and go for a walk. Best of all, it wont cost you a penny!
