Father’s Day is fast approaching, but thinking of gift ideas for the man that has everything can take the joy out this celebration. Let us do the hard work for you! We’ve come up with 10 ideas to celebrate Father’s Day that don’t cost the earth.
Go for a walk
Take some time in the day for a walk to your local park, just you and your Dad. Exercise and fresh air not only boost brain power and creativity but you’ll also be spending much-needed quality time together.
Breakfast (lunch and dinner) in bed
Treat Dad to a duvet day – a recipe for success! Start with breakfast with his favourite film, serve lunch with his favourite box set and end dinner with his favourite TV series.
Pic ‘n’ Mix Treat
Fill a paper bag with all your Dad’s favourite sweeties, keep them fresh and sealed with VELCRO® Brand Stick On Coins.
Bring back memories of Easter Egg Hunts in the garden. Lay a treasure hunt around the house by hiding a trail of Dad’s favourite chocolates or notes saying how much you appreciate him.
Make a picnic
Head outdoors or just into your back garden and enjoy the sunshine with your Dad. Pack some of his much-loved nibbles and spend some quality time with him. Use VELCRO® Brand Carry Straps to help transport your picnic basket.
Pack his lunchbox for work
Make Dad a lunchbox to remember with the added touch of a note saying how much you love him. He’ll have a guaranteed smile for the rest of the day.
Frame a picture
Do you have a favourite picture you and your Dad that’s never been printed out? Reuse an old frame and put it by his bed so he’ll always be reminded of you.
Dust off those tennis rackets
Do you have a garage or shed full of unused sports gear? Get the tennis or badminton rackets out and spend the afternoon battling it out in the ultimate Dad vs Daughter/Son match!
Take the bikes for a spin
Remember the countless hours your Dad spent teaching you how to ride a bike? Give something back this Father’s Day and take your Dad on a bike ride through your favourite local spots ending at a music store/coffee shop depending on his interests.
Write a letter of appreciation
We’re all guilty of not expressing our gratitude to our loved ones. Why not write your Dad a letter of appreciation telling him how grateful you are for all the little things he’s done over the years. Seal with a re-sealable sticky back fastener like our VELCRO® Brand Stick On Coins so he can save it as keepsake.
