How to Celebrate Father’s Day at Home
Your dad is there for you to pick you up when you fall- and then probably crack a joke about you falling in the first place. Your dad is your biggest support system and the person who makes you laugh the most, so it is important to show him how much he means to you on Father’s Day (and every day). There is only one day a year that is dedicated solely to fathers, so you want to make it count! Usually Father’s Day is spent planning an elaborate day doing all the things your dad loves, but with the ongoing Covid pandemic, celebrations might look a little bit different this year. But just because we can’t spend Father’s Day out and about like we normally do doesn’t mean it can’t still be just as special from home! You just have to get creative with your plans. You dad definitely does not deserve anything less than exceptional, so here is how to celebrate Father’s Day at home:
- Make Him Breakfast
Every dad deserves to be woken up to the smell of bacon and french toast on Father’s Day. That is just a rule. Wake up extra early and get to cooking him his favorite breakfast while he sleeps in. You can even bring him breakfast in bed and treat him like he’s on vacation, because every dad deserves to be pampered on Father’s Day.
- Do a Scavenger Hunt
A Father’s Day themed scavenger hunt is a simple, yet exciting way to spend the day at home. Write up a list of clues that pertain to your dad, like “find 2 things that are his favorite color” and “find something that is his height” and see how long it takes him to find the prize. Better yet, make the prize his Father’s Day gift!
- Get Him a Meaningful Gift
Your dad deserves something heartfelt as a gift, like personalized Father’s Day canvases with pictures of your family that he can hang up around the house or in his office. Just make sure whatever you choose is a meaningful gift that you know he will love and appreciate.
- Treat Him to a Beer Tasting
You might not be able to go to a beer tasting with your dad, but you can absolutely bring the beer tasting to him! Treat your dad to a beer subscription for a Father’s Day gift he will definitely enjoy. Plan it out so that it gets to his house exactly on Father’s Day so you can enjoy a nice, cold beer together (as long as you’re of age, of course).
- Plan a Future Trip Together
Although you can’t go on a trip right now, that should not stop you from planning a trip to go on in the future! Figure out a place you have both always wanted to go to and spend the evening figuring out how you will get there and a place to stay. It will be a well-deserved vacation when the time finally comes.
- Play Board Games
End the day by sitting down with the whole family and playing board games. Whip out those games that have been hidden in your basement for the past 5 years and have fun with them! You never realize how much fun you can have playing Monopoly until you go at it with your entire family. It is a whole lot more competitive than you think!
- Tell Your Dad How Much You Love Him
At the end of the day, there is nothing your dad wants more than just to hear how much you love him. He does a lot for you and it is important you spend Father’s Day making it clear how thankful you are for him and how great of a dad he is.
Spending Father’s Day at home can be just as special as going out for a bunch of elaborate plans. Planning out fun at-home activities will show your dad how much you care about making sure he has a fun day. With all the things he has done for you over the years, he definitely deserves a meaningful Father’s Day at-home.
