LET HIM WAKE UP AND SMELL THE COFFEE

If your dad is a coffee enthusiast, buy him a packet of his favourite filter coffee. Surprise him on the morning of Father’s Day with a cuppa in bed.

WAKEY, WAKEY, THERE’S EGGS AND BAKEY

Instead of getting the kitchen dirty and having to clean it up afterwards, or causing a racket while trying to discreetly prepare a breakfast-in-bed, take your dad for some bacon and eggs at his favourite restaurant. Not only is it less effort, it gives you the chance to bond with him and the rest of your family around the breakfast table.

WORKING AT THE CARWASH

This is a gesture we’re sure any parent will love: give his car a wash. If you’re old enough to soap up your dad’s vehicle properly, this is a thoughtful idea for Father’s Day. Have him sit back and enjoy his Sunday morning while you get to work.

A SUNDAY DRIVE AND ICE CREAM

Nothing is more relaxing than a scenic drive on a Sunday afternoon. Treat your dad to his favourite ice cream afterwards and he is sure to love this sweet treat!

HAVE HIM ENJOY A MAN-SSAGE

Who says men can’t do massage treatments? If you believe your dad is overworked and under stress, a massage at a spa is the perfect Father’s Day gift. And if you’re feeling creative, you can even give him the spa-treatment in the comfort of his home, using your hands.

TABLE FOR TWO?

Treat your dad to a hearty cooked Sunday lunch and deck out the table with your mum’s finest cutlery. If your cooking skills are a bit questionable, take him for lunch at his favourite restaurant.

A TRIP DOWN MEMORY LANE

If you have a collection of adorable snaps from your younger years, why not create a little memory book? You can include all of your favourite photos and add captions of your best memories with your dad while growing up.

MAKE HIM FEEL ON TOP OF THE WORLD!

If your dad is the adventurous type, taking him for a hike would be a great idea. Pack in some tasty snacks and enjoy a picnic once you get to the top. The food will be good and the view even better!

MOVIE AND A POPCORN

Turn down the lights, get out the blankets and put on your dad’s favourite movie. Add homemade popcorn to mix and a stay-at-home movie theatre experience is the perfect intimate Father’s Day activity.

KING OF HIS CASTLE

Make your dad a King for the day – make his coffee or tea when he wishes, have him sit back while you do the household chores… he shouldn’t lift a finger! If you want to be cheeky, make your own coupon, which explains to him the Terms and Conditions. We don’t want Daddy working our poor selves to the bone now do we?
