8 Best Ideas to Brighten Up Your Dad’s Special Day

All The Boys in the Family | Veteran Car DonationsHave you marked June 20th on your calendar yet? If not, well, you better do so now or you might get in trouble with your dad. It’s Father’s Day!

Besides the obvious Father’s Day gift and card, you can take it up a notch this year by surprising your pop with something that can truly make his heart full — the gift of time with his family and doing what he loves.

If you’re running out of ideas, don’t panic. We’ve rounded up a list of activities that all kinds of dads will enjoy. Whether your dad’s the outdoorsy type, a food aficionado, or a homebody, you’ll surely bring out his biggest smile with these fun Father’s Day activities.

You don’t need to spend a ridiculous amount of money for a watch, nor do you have to treat him to a super fancy Italian restaurant. A delicious homemade meal is enough to win his heart over, especially when he sees how hard you’ve worked for it. Plus, it’s the quality time he’s really after.

Without further ado, here are some of the best ideas to give your pop the time of his life this Father’s Day:

  1. Plan a camping trip.

Nature is always best experienced with your loved ones, so why not take your dad out on a fun camping trip? Go to the nearest campsite, set up a tent, and spend the day unwinding with your favorite guy. Don’t forget to bring other camping essentials!

  1. Go fishing.

If your dad’s a fishing enthusiast, there’s no better way to celebrate Father’s Day than by going fishing with him. You can even drive him to a lake he’s never been to before. Just be sure that there are fish there.

  1. Sign up for a game of paintball.

Let your dad show his competitive side by taking him to a paintball field. Pit the generations against each other to make the game even more exciting.

  1. Treat your dad to a cookout.

Just because your dad might be the reigning king of the grill doesn’t mean that you can’t impress him with your grilling recipes. Show him everything you’ve learned from him, from flipping burgers to making the perfect patties. He might even dethrone himself after that one bite.

  1. Tackle a project together.

Is your dad fond of arts and crafts? If so, you can bond with him this Father’s Day by doing artsy or crafty activities together. Perhaps you can give the living room a makeover with newly painted walls, build a birdhouse, or a DIY bookshelf!

  1. Rent his dream car.

What’s that car your dad has always wanted to own but couldn’t because of its million-dollar price tag? Well, you can finally make his dream come true, or at least, just for a day.

  1. Make breakfast together.

Cook up your own Father’s Day breakfast menu and let your dad prepare his special breakfast dishes everyone can’t get enough of. That’s going to be a breakfast to remember.

  1. Host a beer tasting night.

Name a dad who doesn’t like beer. Not yours? Then, this idea should be perfect for him!
