All dads are typically laid back and easy to please. Still, choosing presents for Father’s Day can get tricky sometimes.
Maybe skip the socks and bowties this year and take Dad on an adventure to remember instead. Inside this post, you will find ideas to get you started for different kinds of dads.
Road trip it
It doesn’t have to be a long trip. Especially if it’s a surprise and he doesn’t have time to request off from work. Weekend trips are the perfect way for him (and you) to recharge from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
Is there a nearby city or attraction he’s been wanting to see? Take him there. He’ll be impressed you remembered and appreciative to be going.
But in truth? He’s just happy to be anywhere with all of you.
There’s nothing like going off the grid and spending time together in the great outdoors. The same way dads love telling corny jokes is the same way they love telling spooky stories around a campfire.
Don’t forget to pack stuff for s’mores!
Take a hike
Strap on your boots and sneakers and explore a National or State Park together.
This is especially a great option if there are little ones still in carriers. Let dad harness the baby on to him and have him lead the way.
Take him out to a ball game
Kids of every age have been enjoying baseball games with their fathers for decades.
Picture this: Hooting and hollering for the same team, chowing down on hotdogs and popcorn, washing it all down with an ice cold soda (or beer for dad), waving around one of those giant foam fingers and jumping up and down when your guys win.
Foodie Dads (Every Dad)
Serve him breakfast in bed
On his special day, serve him breakfast in bed.
If you find a hotel with kitchen accommodations, the whole family can whip up his favorite meal right from the room while he sleeps. Or, sleep in too and just have room service deliver whatever you want to your front door.
Ask locals for suggestions for a fun or iconic place to eat in the area. They’ll know the one.
It could be somewhere where the pizza pies are said to be bigger than your heads or an ice cream parlor with innovative flavors you’ve never heard of before- you’ll find something!
What’s more fun than being trapped in an escape room with dad?
You will have to work together as a team to solve different puzzles and find the hidden key before it’s too late. Dads love a good challenge- and any opportunity to save the day.
