Happy (almost) Dad’s Day to the coolest guy in your life.
Whether you’re celebrating dads, grandads, brothers or father figures, use this day to honour and pay homage to the man who has always been there and remind him just how much you appreciate his love.
But what do you do for the man that’s done it all? We’ve had the same thought. Whether your Dad is sitting next to you or halfway across the globe, we’ve put together a short, carefully-curated list of things you can do to treat the most important man in your life.
FOR THE DADS FAR AND WIDE
1. Schedule A FaceTime Call
While you may not be able to hug your Dad this Father’s Day, the simple act of interacting via video-chat will not go astray. Hearing each other’s voices and seeing each other’s smiles will give you both something to be grateful for.
2. UberEats some brekkie to his house in the morning
Just because you can’t be there, doesn’t mean your Dad can’t get his breakfast in bed. Plan ahead and tell him to stay in his PJ’s, eggs and OJ are on the way.
For the Dads just around the corner
3. Challenge him to a round of golf
Or a fishing trip. Or a basketball game. Or an intense game of Scrabble. A memory made together is a gift that can last a lifetime. Whatever your Dad loves to do, plan a day around one of his favourite things.
4. Take him whisky tasting
Consider treating your Dad to something he’s never done. Be it a gin masterclass or a home-brewing course, treat his taste buds to a new experience!
For the Dads no longer here
5. Remember him.
Some of us have had to say goodbye to good men in our lives, and Father’s Day can be a time to honour their memory. Use this day to spend some time reflecting on the legacy they’ve left. You might even write some words of encouragement to other men in your life building their legacy.
For all Dads
6. Say thank-you.
From taking your first steps to getting your first car, your Dad has geared up and cheered you on from the sidelines. There aren’t enough hours in a day to thank our Dads for all they have done for us, but we can certainly start with those two words.
