Plan a Movie Marathon
This summer brings so many new releases in familiar fandoms. From Lightyear to Jurassic World: Dominion, and of course Top Gun: Maverick, it’s going to be a good summer.
Odds are the dad in your life has a movie franchise that’s near and dear to his heart. Plan a day watching all of his favorites. Add a popcorn bar, ice cream sundaes or simply order in pizza to round out the day.
My husband loves a day at the beach, a hike through the woods, really any opportunity to get out in nature. Unfortunately, he married a very indoorsy woman who blessed him with equally indoorsy children. For Father’s Day we let him call the shots – without whining!
Head for the beach, pack a picnic, research local hiking trails. Don’t forget the sunscreen and the snacks!
Have a Yes Day
While this idea typically applies to kids, why not let dad be in charge? Anything he suggests, goes. Watch the movie Yes Day on Netflix the night before to get everyone in the mood. Or, if you have less time on your hand, read the children’s picture book!
Host a Tasting
We love this one because the possibilities are endless. If he’s a wine connoisseur, pick up a few varieties that he hasn’t tried and pair them with a charcuterie board.
There are so many ways to play on this classic theme:
- Donut Tasting – Pick up donuts from a new local place, OR more than one place to compare!
- Soda Tasting – Visit an international market for varieties you haven’t tried
- Cheese Tasting – Visit the cheese counter and pick anything that looks interesting!
- Candy Tasting – Check out World Market for a variety of candy from around the world that you might not have tried!
Have a Tournament
Whether it’s chess, Mario Kart, or corn hole, we bet you can find a game your dude will love Host a family tournament to see which member reigns supreme. You can up the stakes with awards or even a trophy that the winner will hold until next year.
