The Best Things To Do On Father’s Day

Father's Day is just around the corner, so it’s time to think about the perfect Father’s Day gift and personalised card to make Dad’s day that little bit more special on June 21st!

While Father’s Day 2020 might be a little different than years past due to the coronavirus outbreak, you can still treat Dad to a heart-warming gift and there are plenty of things to do that don’t involve meals out or concerts.

From firing up the barbeque to hiking and beer tasting, these ideas for what to do on Father’s Day ideas will show dad just how much you care.

Go for a hike

While social distancing is likely still going to be advised by the time Father’s Day rolls around, there’s nothing stopping you taking dad out on a hike to get out of the house for a little bit. Find a hike near you and don the walking boots to get a breath of fresh air and give your dad the chance to reflect on how lucky he is to have you!

Fire up the barbeque

Father’s Day is best celebrated with family and scrumptious food, so bringing out the barbeque is a no-brainer. Suggest a family BBQ this year and flip burgers with Dad or simply cheer him on as he serves delicious platefuls of goodness. You can tie a home BBQ in with your Father’s Day gift, too. Get him this personalised apron and everyone will know who the barbeque king is!

Homemade dinner

Despite Father’s Day being on June 21st, being in Britain, we’re not guaranteed sunny weather! If the weather’s not playing nice, whip up a special meal in the kitchen instead and present dad with a specially engraved drinking glass to show him how much you care.

Host a movie night

Is your dad a film-buff? If so, give him the gift of cinematic enjoyment by hosting a film night for him this Father’s Day. You can pick out his favourite films, create a nice atmosphere in the living room with dimmed lights, and settle down for a night at the movies. If you want to go the extra mile and make your movie night special, get him one of these personalised movie night boxes full of snacks!

Back garden beer tasting

Dads and beers are a match made in heaven, so help Dad cool off this Father’s Day with a refreshing pint, without the pub. Earn extra brownie points by planning an afternoon of craft beer tasting – he might find a new favourite, and it’ll be all thanks to you! Our range of beer gifts is perfect for every beer enthusiast dad.

Get crafty

It seems like everyone has got a little more in touch with their creative side since we’ve been in lockdown, so indulge your dad’s DIY sensibilities this Father’s Day with some Father’s Day craft activities. You can make this last as long as you’d like by choosing crafts of different difficulty levels and, best of all, your dad will have something to remember his day by!

Have a family games night

Board games are one of the greatest family bonding exercises (once you get past the argument stage), so host a games night this Father’s Day if you’ve got a competitive dad. Choose from a favourite like Monopoly or Scrabble or go for something a little more different like The Brexit Card Game (yes, that exists) or the Blockbuster Party Game.

A day out to remember

Last but not least, all Dads will agree that the best present they could wish for is the gift of time spent with their children. Plan a special activity or day out to make new memories. Whether that’s a celebratory BBQ or sports game in the garden, or even a trip to the countryside for a hike in the hills.

Don’t forget to take lots of photographs throughout the day – you never know, they may help out with next year’s homemade Father’s Day present!
