Whatever you have in mind will definitely be special if it involves spending time with the whole family. Here are five of our favorite Father’s Day activities. Show this list to the other members of your family and pick the one you think your dad would enjoy the most!
1. Board Game Night
How about a little friendly competition? Put the phones away for some offline bonding time! Board games are a great way for any family to bond, so pick a couple of exciting ones so that everyone can play! You can play Scrabble if you’re a bunch of word nerds, or Catan if you want a little more action. While there are a lot of new games and game systems out there, Monopoly is a classic option that shouldn’t be overlooked. Make sure dad gets first dibs on his piece! Enjoy a rousing game over dinner and while the hours away in the company of those nearest and dearest to you.
2. Early Bird Breakfast
Do you remember running to the table on a Saturday morning after waking up to a whiff of your dad’s famous pancakes? This Father’s Day, why not return the favor? Get up bright and early and make breakfast for him! Prepare a menu of his favorites, including some classic dishes from your childhood to really get the sentimental value up. Whether you surprise him in bed or have the table all set once he wakes up, a generous, lovingly made breakfast spread will surely set the mood for the rest of the day. Add more to the ambiance by lighting a Diamond Candle in Café Latte! It’ll have the entire room smelling like his favorite cup of joe.
3. Shopping, Dad-Style
It may seem ironic to take Dad out on an activity he seems to detest, but shopping should definitely be an option! It’ll be the perfect opportunity to spoil the main man of your life silly. The trick here is choosing a shop that aligns with his interests. Shop for new fishing gear, culinary tools, video games, gadgets, hiking boots, the list goes on! Shopping is a wonderful way to spend time with your dad and get to know him a little bit more – plus, you’re sure to get the perfect Father’s Day present!
4. Spa Day
Spa days are usually associated with mommy bonding, but that doesn’t mean dad won’t enjoy the extra pampering! Most dads tend to neglect their self-care, so give him a little love this Father’s Day! You can book him an appointment at your favorite local spa, or schedule some massages at home so he can be cozy and comfortable! Don’t forget to light a few Hexagon Candles in Lavender & Chamomile to turn any space into an upscale spa.
5. Enjoy A Local Concert
A little live music can really liven things up! When was the last time you enjoyed a show together? Concerts don’t have to be big names with expensive tickets attached. Chances are, there are a lot of good shows headlined by local talent this Father’s Day weekend. Whether your dad is a jazzy kind of man or a solid classic rock fan, find a show that matches your dad’s listening preferences and go for it! It’s a nice way to spend time together, and you both may discover new favorites along the way.
Whatever you decide to do, just plan it with your dad in mind. It doesn’t have to be grand, it just has to come from the heart. Your presence and time are already the best gifts ever.
