Because we love our readers and we love our readers Dads, we’ve come up with a few ways to make sure you get Father’s Day right!
Make him his all-time favourite meal
Spoiling dad this Father’s Day doesn’t have to be extravagant; I know my dad would be happy with a giant pot of vegetable soup. So, find out what your dad loves and make it for him. He will appreciate all the effort that goes into preparing something specific for him and will be thankful. It’s one day a year set aside for him, so make sure it’s a special one.
Embrace all your Father figures
Your ‘Dad’ doesn’t have to be someone biological, he can be someone you look up to who has always been like a father to you – from step-dads, uncles, and even family friends. Everyone’s situation is different, so make sure all the father figures in your life feel the love this Father’s Day.
Spend time with him
Every year my sister and I ask dad what he wants for Father’s Day, and every year he replies with “I just want to spend time with the family”. So make sure you give your dad some much needed love this Father’s Day, and every day of the year for that fact. Don’t just use this one day to show your dad you appreciate him. All most dads want is to be able to spend time with their kids. It doesn’t have to be a big thing to spend time with him; you can take him out for lunch, spend time with him watching his favourite movie, or just go for a Sunday walk around the neighbourhood.
Before you can make sure you’ve got the perfect gift for your Dad, you need to determine what type of gift. Are you going to make it a practical gift, a personalised gift or a bucket list gift? Practical could be something like clothes, gift vouchers or accessories to aid his hobbies. Personalised gifts include football memorabilia, a personalised mug or a nice framed photo of the family. And finally, a bucket list gift would include things he has always wanted to do, like a ticket to a concert, a night away or booking him in for a whiskey or beer tour.
A C&M Creations Gift Box
This appeals to your dads sweet and savoury side, with both options being available. You can customise a box with either your dad’s favourite sweets or favourite savoury foods, and all boxes come with an included mini bottle of a spirit of your choice. So, spoil your dad this Father’s Day and get him a customised C&M Creations gift box with all his favourite foods. www.facebook.com/cmplatters
