10 Ways to Show Dad the Love This Fathers Day
Father’s Day only comes around once a year. Why not make the dad in your life feel extra-special? It doesn’t take a lot of effort to give him a day that lets him know how much you appreciate his hard work and dedication to the family. Here are some ideas for a Father’s Day that will knock Dad’s socks off.
Go for a hike
What most dads probably want more than anything is to spend some quality time with his loved ones. If he’s an outdoorsy guy, he’ll love a day of hiking. Let him choose the spot or surprise him with a new location to try.
Is the father in your life into history? Plan a day to take in some local monuments or landmarks. You could also make a day trip out of it and take in some new sights dad has never visited.
Have a lake picnic
Pack up some of dad’s favorite on-the-go foods and go to the nearest lake. Time with family, by the water, will make him a happy man. You can even plan to indulge in some fishing or boating if that’s your dad’s style.
Check out a car show
If Dad’s a car-enthusiast, he’d probably love a day spent browsing a car show. It shouldn’t be hard to find one that’s close over Father’s Day weekend.
Take in some live music
From a Beatles tribute band to a jazz show at a local establishment, there’s always something going on in the music world that your dad will enjoy.
Plan a grill-stravaganza
Get all of Dad’s favorite meats and go to town. If he doesn’t want to hand over the tongs, the least you can do is a be a willing learning as he teaches you his art.
Book a massage
Dads work hard. They often carry the weight of the world on their strong shoulders. A massage might be just what the doctor ordered to relieve some of the stress.
Take him golfing
With all the things that dads HAVE to do, it’s nice to indulge him with a day full of activities he enjoys. If your dad is a golfer, offer to go along with him while he plays a round. Maybe he’ll even let you drive the golf cart.
Gift him with a tune-up
Take one of the chores off of his lengthy “Honey-Do” list and set up (and pay for!) getting his vehicle serviced. He’ll be surprised and delighted.
Hit up a brewery
Is the father in your life a connoisseur of fine brews? Craft beers are all the rage these days, so it won’t be hard to find a great one and treat Dad to a beer tasting.
It’s all about Dad
Whatever you choose to do on Father’s Day, the most important thing to remember is that the day is set aside to show your appreciation. Any time spent together will be all your dad needs to feel the love. Why not bring Dad’s car into Conrad’s for some routine maintenance?
