As the weather is perfect for outdoor Father’s Day activities, use the opportunity to get some nice food and gather family members and friends around the table for a fun barbeque.
Pack up a picnic
There is absolutely no reason not to head outdoors on that day. Among all fun father’s day activities, this is arguably one of the easiest ones to set up. All you need is a nice playlist and a speaker, some sandwiches, sunscreen, and your dad’s most beloved people gathered around him.
Play backyard games
Want to set up something low key? If you don’t have the time or budget to set up something big, you can always take some board games, and a bottle of wine. Just spend some quality time outside, playing games in your backyard. Let your dad get competitive!
Go to a live sports game
In case your dad is into sports, it seems like a great plan to treat him by getting the tickets to a live sports game. Is there local sports teams he supports? Or is there a cool league match happening on the day? Have a great time supporting a nice team together.
Take him out for brunch
Make your Dad’s day by taking him out to a cool place for brunch. The tastier, the better! It’s his special day, so make sure to pick a restaurant that makes all his gastronomic wishes come true (be it ricotta pancakes or pizza). 😉
If your dad loves movies as much as we do, he would definitely enjoy a screening of some new movie he wanted to watch, or a private screening of his favorite cinema. You can prepare a whole movie marathon, united by a certain theme, and create some cool thematic decorations. If you have the opportunity, you can even arrange an outdoor screening in your backyard. Just don’t forget the popcorn!
Send him for a massage
