Get a head start on your Father’s Day planning this year, and if you don’t have any ideas in mind for what gift to buy or how to spend the day, here are some perfect Father’s Day Ideas.
FATHER’S DAY GIFTS
When it comes to buying a gift for someone special in your life, you can never go wrong with something personal. Something that can be personalized just for them is much more meaningful than a simple generic gift, and it shows the thought that went into it. A great gift you can get that can be specially personalized is this First Father’s Day Picture Frame.
For many fathers out there, playing or watching sports is their favorite pastime. This Father’s Day, why not gift your father or husband something they’ll get a lot of use of, such as a jersey for their favorite team or a new set of golf clubs? If you’re into sports just as much as they are, try to score tickets to their favorite team’s game so you can go to the game together.
Something Bar Related
Perfect for anyone who enjoys a good drink every once in a while, a gift such as a nice set of whiskey glasses or a beginner’s kit for brewing your own alcohol is perfect. Not only will these gifts last a while, but they’re a simple gift while still being thoughtful.
Something for His Beard
Facial hair is more popular than ever before, and months dedicated to letting your beard run wild such as No Shave November have lured even more men into rocking a scruffy face. If this is the case for the father in your life, something to keep their beard looking shiny and healthy is a perfect gift, such as beard oil. Along these lines, they’re bound to get use out of a good bear trimmer.
For the Chef in Your Life
It’s no secret that men are often looked at as being grill masters. There’s something very masculine about cooking a big piece of steak over an open fire outdoors, and many men take this task very seriously. Because of this, a gift that’s related to grilling or even cooking in general, such as a nice set of cooking tools for the BBQ or kitchen, would make the perfect gift this Father’s Day.
THINGS TO DO
Go to a Sporting Event, or Create Your Own
Just as something sports related may be the perfect gift for Father’s Day, it also may make for the perfect activity for Father’s Day. If there are any games coming up that you know your father wouldn’t want to miss, try scoring tickets for you and him to spend the day together. If there are no sporting games or events that sound good, then make one yourself. Head over to a local ballpark, tennis court, basketball court – anything – and play your own game together.
Spend the Day Outdoors
For the outdoorsy father in your life, there’s no doubt that he’ll enjoy spending this Father’s Day in the fresh air – as long as the weather outside is nice! Plan a fun outdoor activity such as a hike, bike ride, or maybe even some mini golf, and get that adrenaline pumping.
Go Out to Eat
Even if your father enjoys cooking, it’s always nice to be able to enjoy a nice meal without having to stand over the oven yourself every once in a while. This Father’s Day, make reservations at a restaurant you know the father in your life will love and treat him to a nice lunch or dinner.
Spend the Day on a Boat
