Father's Day is a time to thank your dad for everything he has done for you and the wonderful memories you have had thus far. Father's Day is an annual holiday held on the third Sunday of June - this year, it falls on the 20th of June. There are various ways to celebrate Father's Day from across the world. In the UK, families typically give their father's gifts, followed by a family day out and a Sunday roast.
Here are a few things you could do to celebrate Father's Day this year.
Pick out the perfect present
Find the perfect Father's Day card and gift to give your dad this year. Stay away from socks, toilet humour and anything that you gave him last year. Try to think of a gift he will actually use and benefit from, like noise-cancelling headphones and a family game night. You could host a bunch of games in the garden and play them as a family. Just make sure to check on the latest lockdown restrictions to stay safe at home.
If your dad has had a busy few weeks, he might appreciate a relaxed movie day at home over a busy day out. Choose his favourite movies, like a Marvel film or Lord of the Rings, and set up a cinema experience. Gather all of the blankets, snacks and a few beers for your dad to enjoy while you watch movies all day long. Finish the day with a beautiful homecooked meal and an early night.
Have a BBQ
If you get nice weather, you could have a BBQ in the garden. Nothing beats turning on the grill and cooking some steaks, burgers and sausages for the family. Try to make the BBQ as easy as possible for your dad, so all he has to do is cook the food. Set up the table, chairs and set out the cutlery to make sure your parents have a relaxing day.
Go on a day out
Why not organise a fishing or camping trip? Father's Day is the perfect opportunity to take your dad on a surprise fishing trip at your local lake or river. Book the boats, pack your rods and make sure he has the day free of commitments. Enjoy a relaxing day fishing together and build some memories you will cherish forever.
Go out for dinner
If your dad prefers eating food over catching it, book his favourite restaurant for Father's Day. Try to book somewhere with food for everyone so the whole family can have a lovely meal out.
Father's Day is a wonderful celebration that can be as fun or relaxing as you want it to be. Remember, this day is about your dad and what he likes to do.
