The father figure in your life is not cut from the same cloth as every dad. Even if he has a ton of “dad moments,” he’s still a unique individual who loves certain things and makes a huge impact on your life. There are a lot of ways to celebrate Father’s Day, but let’s face it, a lot of them are overused and tired. A tie for work as a gift? Pass. A day spent watching golf? No thank you, that’s every weekend as it is. Do something memorable this Father’s Day and celebrate dad in the most unique way possible. Here are a few out of the box ideas to make dad feel special.
These might seem small, and even a little crazy, but if you want a unique way to make dad’s day, here are some options
Live Out His Childhood
If you have a dad that loves some playtime, no matter how old he gets, takes things back to his childhood. Get all screens and keep them away for the day and get outside. Maybe dad loves basketball, or even just walking in the park where he used to play. Take him there and do something, so long as it meets his activity limitations. Even if it’s a small thing that reminds him of a childhood memory, it could likely mean a huge difference to him and make the day memorable.
Take Him Somewhere New
Dad loves his routines, but sometimes a new experience might be a great way to get him out of his routine this Father’s Day. Everyone loves taking dad to his favorite spot, but what about somewhere new? This might be a risk, but who knows dad better than you? Think of something he loves, maybe coffee or a type of food, and get him out of his normal routine for something new. He might find a new favorite, and it could be the start of a new tradition for the two of you.
Go Shopping, Dad Style
Shopping is not usually dad’s favorite thing to do, but that depends on the store. In fact, a trip somewhere dad loves to shop might be a nice surprise. Gifts are great, but who doesn’t love getting to pick something out they have had their eye on for a while? It may seem a little different than wrapping a gift but getting to dad’s favorite store and making time to buy him something he loves could be a fun change of pace.
Dad deserves a great day. Celebrate him in a unique way this Father’s Day!
