Every year, my dad tells me not to get him anything for Father’s Day because having me as his daughter is a gift enough (cue the aww’s). But, I want to ensure my dad knows how appreciated he is, so I always like to give him a little something, even if it’s just an afternoon together! Here are five experiences you can gift to your dad this year.
Do a tech lesson.
Not every dad is technologically savvy, so it’s worth it to take an afternoon to teach your dad some new tricks. You can then make communication with your dad even easier! I taught my dad how to use message effects on his iPhone, and then he proceeded to use them for 48 hours straight with every message he sent.
Go through family photos.
Sit with your dad, and learn some family history! As you go through family photos, start compiling some to make a Photo Book together. It’ll be something you’ll both treasure for years to come.
Tour a local brewery or distillery (and then treat him some drinks).
Craft breweries and distilleries are seeing a renaissance in popularity across the country. Find one near you, and set up a tour for you and Dad. Then, don’t remember to treat him to a couple of drinks or a bottle to take home.
Try one of his hobbies with him.
Does your dad like to golf? Build model trains? Take a sunset walk? Even if a seven-mile hike isn’t your ideal Sunday, make an effort to do whatever his activity of choice is – it’s his day!
Send him something thoughtful.
Can’t quite make it home to see your dad? You can always send a thoughtful gift delivered before Father’s Day. Even just sending some 5×7” Photo Prints with a note can bring on the water works from Dad.
