What do you usually do on Father’s Day? I’m going to go out on a limb here and assume that many of us usually have dinner (or lunch) and give gifts. While these activities are not negative in any way, there are many other things that you can celebrate Father’s Day.
This year, why not change things up a little bit and do something different for – or with – your father?
Here are some of the best Father’s Day activities that you can prepare for.
Beer or wine tasting
Depending on what your dad likes, you can take him on a beer or wine tasting tour. There is also the option of coffee tasting, as well as brandy, whiskey, or other food or drink tours. Do a search on Google for the specific kind of tour you know your dad will enjoy.
If your dad is the king of the kitchen, then he’ll appreciate a cooking lesson or two. You don’t have to do it together – but that would be nice – and it doesn’t have to be done on Father’s Day itself. You can look around in your area for cooking schools which offer lessons in packages, and sign up your dad for one. Not only do you make your dad happy, you’ll also probably get to reap the benefits of your gift.
The stereotype of a guy not going to a spa and not liking being pampered is not that strong these days. In fact, may men do enjoy pampered now and then. Why not take your dad to a spa and have a nice, relaxing day with him?
Go to a car show or a showroom
While not everyone has a passion for cars – some see them as a necessity, that’s all – if your dad is a motorhead, then this is the perfect Father’s Day activity you can do. If there are no car shows going on, then find a showroom and take his dream car for a test drive. That should give you lots of fun.
Go to a museum or art gallery
Got a busy dad who likes art? When was the last time he was able to enjoy this passion? Take him out for a day so that he can de-stress, and you can spend time bonding together. You can even do a city tour (make up your own), eat ice cream at the park, and do whatever you feel like doing at the moment.
The essential element of all these Father’s Day activities is that you spend time together doing something your dad will enjoy.
This covers a lot of ground. If your dad likes live music, take him to a concert. You can also go to a bar which has a band. There’s the theater and the opera. You can even go to an open mic night or a poetry reading night.
