3 Ways to Celebrate Father’s Day

For many, a dad can be a special person. Just like its maternal equivalent, Father’s Day is very important. And contrary to popular belief, it isn’t a commercial holiday; it actually has origins in the Middle Ages.

Now, it’s celebrated throughout the world, across over 100 countries. How can we honour this special day, though? More importantly, what Father’s Day gifts should we buy?

To find out how, why not explore these three simple ideas?  

1.      Give the Gift of Time

Most of us lead busy lives, especially if we’re parents ourselves. So, why not give the gift of time to your old man? And no, we’re not just talking about an hour or so – we mean a decent chunk of time, like an afternoon or whole day.

Dedicate this period entirely to your dad, and he’ll likely appreciate it. How can you display this abstract gift, you ask? Easily, as it turns out.

Why don’t you write your assigned time down in a card or note? Alternatively, you could surprise him on the day itself by knocking on his door.

Either option will no doubt leave him feeling touched.

2.      Make a Mixtape

Mixtapes aren’t confined to the past – they’re as current as ever. True, their format may have changed slightly, but it remains a popular choice of gift. And it’s easy to see why.

After all, it’s highly personal; it reflects how well we know its curator knows the gift recipient. With this in mind, why don’t you make one for your dad?

Feature songs that mean something to each of you to amplify its meaning. You could also include his favourite tracks from over the years.

Whatever you decide to add, make sure that it highlights your connection to your old man. 

3.      Create a Slideshow

Want to show your dad how much he means to you? Then how about creating a slideshow? That way, you’ll be able to document your special relationship through film.

This is a thoroughly thoughtful gift, as the end result will show just how close the two of you are to one another.

What’s more, it could be great fun for you to sift through old photos. If you have siblings, it may offer a simple, yet poignant group activity. It’s often equally fun to do this alone, too.

And of course, you and your dad will enjoy watching the slideshow on Father’s Day itself.  

Father’s Day is worth celebrating. Find the right gift, and you can guarantee that your dad enjoys it to the full.
