The best way to spend Father’s Day is with a road trip with the family! You get to spend time together, and both your final destination and the road to get there can be memorable. Think of taking your dad on a weekend trip to a place he’s always wanted to visit or one he’s been meaning to see again.
Hitting the highway is not only a great way to have some fun but also to spend some quality time together with your father. Whether you’re going somewhere for the day or for the weekend, the drive will give you both plenty of time to reminisce about his childhood and your shared experiences, as well as to talk about his plans for the future if you can manage a last-minute packing surprise, all the better!
#2: Pranking Him
Father’s Day is a special time to celebrate all the amazing fathers out there and show them how much they are appreciated. While gift-giving is a popular way to show your love for dad, why not take it one step further and make this Father’s Day an extra memorable one by pranking him? Pranks can be fun for everyone involved if done in good taste.
If you want something simple, you can do a prank call! Choose someone you know he would never expect, such as his former high school teacher or the local post office. Make an elaborate story about why you need their help, then have them relay messages back and forth with you until your dad asks what’s happening! You can also download the Ownage Pranks app and make two people call each other. You can set your dad and your uncle, grandfather, or whoever. They won’t suspect a thing, and you may eavesdrop on their conversations as they try to figure out who phoned who.
#3: Start a new tradition
This year, try something that you have yet to do before. Whatever it is that will make both of you happy, whether it be learning how to fly fish in one of the local streams, taking some cooking lessons at the community college in your town, or purchasing tickets to see his favorite sports team play at their next game, that is the perfect activity. A wonderful custom to start in honor of Father’s Day; this will ensure that he always looks forward to reliving this wonderful event with you year after year.
#4: Plan a picnic
A picnic might be the perfect way to commemorate Father’s Day for those of us who have to get a bit creative this year! Picnics are fantastic for entertaining the family and creating memories. Consider having your picnic in an outdoor space, such as a park or backyard. Place a blanket or two down and look for some comfy seating (e.g., chairs). Pack foods that can be consumed without plate ware or silverware, such as sandwiches, chips, fruit/veggies, etc. You may bring hobbies like cards or board games for extra fun!
#5: Fancy dinner with the family
Father’s Day is all about honoring the impact fathers have on our lives, and what better way to express your gratitude than with a lavish supper for him? A classic family-style dinner will delight the significant man in your life. You can add some unique ideas to the evening to make it extra spectacular! To begin the evening, hire a private chef or caterer to cook an amazing dinner tailored to Dad’s tastes and preferences. If you do not want to pay someone, organize an ‘Iron Chef’-style competition among family members (with Dad as the judge) in which everyone brings something special – this will be a pleasant time with plenty of laughs.
What better way to express gratitude and appreciate the fathers in your life than with a unique Father’s Day celebration?
