As 2019 continues to fly by, Father’s Day is steadily appearing on the horizon. This year, June 16th is the day to celebrate the men of the house in all their hilarious, caring and downright daddish behaviour.
One thing on your mind may well be the gift buying element. Dads are notoriously difficult to buy for, often asking for nothing at all. While Card Factory will have you covered on everything from fun to sentimental presents to start the day, what about an awesome adventure to take the man of the moment on?
Here are five family and solo activities that he’ll love.
A Tasty Tipple Trip
If you fancy leaving the kids at home, a visit to a brewery or a whiskey or wine tasting day combines a sophisticated gift with the excuse to enjoy a drink or two! Whatever your man’s tipple, you should be able to find a tour or event that will suit his taste buds as well as teaching him even more about his favourite beverage.
Hit the Fairway
If you fancy leaving the kids and yourself at home (unless you’re a passionate golfer), 18 holes on one of the UK’s premium golf course is an awesome experience for a golf enthusiast. You can even book golf breaks; fun mini holidays that are concerned with nothing other than hitting tiny white balls around nice grass.
It may or may not be up your street, but if your partner likes golf he’ll be over the moon with a gift like this.
Go to the Match
Why not take the family to see dad’s favourite team? You might not be a big fan of football, rugby, cricket and the like, but live games are actually a really fun experience for the whole family (just make sure to sit in the family stand for a football game).
The atmosphere can be a spectacle in itself, even if the activity on the pitch doesn’t seem too exciting. The kids will almost certainly love it as well, especially if it’s a new experience for them.
Take the Family to a Live Show
Similarly, to a sports event, what about taking the family to a music gig or a live show? If dad’s favourite band isn’t too heavy, a gig is another great experience for the family, as well as a great opportunity for you and the kids to share in your dad’s interests.
Want something more family friendly? A pantomime is a classic tradition and great fun for everyone. Otherwise, if the kids are old enough to get it, try a live play at your local theatre for another special trip.
A Good Old-Fashioned Walk
If you’re not looking to break the bank on a grandiose day out, a nice walk or hike with the family can provide beautiful views, some lovely fresh air and a chance to explore, all the for the cost of £0.
Have a look into local walks in your area. One of the great things about the UK is, even if you live in the city, you’re never too far away from green fields and rolling hills. Something we often take for granted, but our home is more picturesque than we give it credit for.
No matter what you choose to do in the end, the man of the day will be happy. Dads, for all their quirks, tend to be unfussy when it comes to gifts. Just spending time with you and the kids will be more than enough to make him happy; anything after that is a bonus.
