It’s Father’s Day this Sunday. Your chance to show Dad how much he means to you.
Over the years Dad has been your taxi, bank, chef, doctor – your hero. Of course it can be hard to decide what you would like to do with Dad this weekend. Not to worry, we’ve got you covered. Below is a list of great activities and gift ideas for Dad this Father’s Day.
If your Dad is anything like mine, he would be a fan of the classics. This could mean John Wayne, Band of Brothers or perhaps more recent with the Marvel movies.
What’s more fun than a movie night with all the greats? You are comfortable at home, enjoying great food, treats and something you can’t have in the cinema, a nice cup of tea. This goes great with your Uccello Kettle gift and your Muggi can keep them safe the entire movie.
What about some quality one-on-one time with Dad on the boat? Whether you know all there is to know about fishing or you are a little green, it’s the quality time that’s the best.
Pack up the bag with food and drinks and don’t forget to bring your trusty Muggi along for the ride too. It can help keep your items steady on the boat should you catch a big one.
Card and board games are an old time favourite of mine. It doesn’t matter if you’ve played them a million times, each time the experience and the fun is new. Why not bring by some of the family favorite’s or better yet, get Dad to teach you some new card games?
He’ll love sharing the knowledge and passing new things down to the next generation. Their are countless card games out there. It wasn’t too long ago that I learned of a new card game from my Grandmother, that we all still play today.
When we were all in lockdown, we had to get creative with what we could do at home during the big occasions. 2 years ago, we gave my Dad an at home wine tasting. None of us are in any way the perfect sommalier or know what we’re talking about when it comes to wine.
I just thought it would be a fun family activity to do together.
We picked up a few small sample bottles of various styles of red wine and paired them with crackers, a selection of cheese, salami and prosciutto. It was a great night.
Becoming a Gamer
The older generation may not be as quick when it comes to learning how to use the latest gadget or console. That doesn’t mean they can’t be taught. Imagine how much fun you could have by teaching Dad the ins and outs of playing the Xbox or PlayStation this weekend. You never know, in a few months, he could be your back up on Call of Duty or your sworn enemy on Halo with a higher score than you.
It’s a chance to bond and laugh together, and what better day to start that on Father’s Day? Pop the kettle on and go talk to Dad about it now.
