6 ideas for Father’s Day for every type of dad
Treat your dad to a Father’s Day they’ll never forget. Whether they’re into nature, cooking up a storm in the kitchen, or prefer a cosy night-in infront of the tele, we’ve put together six meaningful activities that’s sure to please every type of dad.
1. For the outdoorsy dad
The UK is home to an abundance of wildlife and magnificent nature preserves, so why not take dad on a camping trip? There’s no better way to spend some quality time with him than taking time away from your screens and sharing stories over a campfire. Plan ahead and be sure to pack the essentials: firestarters, playing cards, and ingredients to make smores.
2. For the workaholic dad
Whether he loves to work or simply can’t escape the office, help your dad take some much needed time away from his desk with a trip to the seaside. Leave the chips for the seagulls, and instead treat him to a picnic hamper this Father’s Day. Featuring an array of sweet and savory snacks, there’s something for everyone who joins on the day out.
3. For the mums who double up as dads
Because we know how important mums are who do it alone, we want to spoil her with the ultimate at-home spa day. Begin by running her a bath with all the usual beauty essentials, then use her zen time to prep the living room. We’re talking candles, setting up her favourite movie, and of course, a little chocolate and Prosecco.
- For the foodie dads - For the dads who love to cook, why not spend some time with them in the kitchen this Father’s Day? Choose from a selection of mouthwatering recipes, then whilst it’s cooking, pull up a seat with dad around the counter and tuck into some pre-dinner cheesy snacks.
- For the movie-loving dads - Surprise your dad by being prepared with a movie you’ve already decided you actually want to watch. Then, with the hour you just freed up, maximise movie night like never before - we’re talking printing ‘cinema tickets’, individual popcorn bags, multiple topping selections, and lining the coffee table with all of his favourite movie theatre-inspired snacks
You could even take things one step further by adorning the room with movie memorabilia or dressing up in themed clothes. But remember, all phones must be switched off while the movie is on.
- For the cheeky tipple dads - However you decide to celebrate Father’s Day, many of us can probably agree that the perfect end to the day involves feet up on the couch and a light pour of dad’s favourite tipple- whether that be a cold beer, a nice glass of red or perhaps a premium scotch. Even better as a hamper.
