Father’s Day is this weekend and I would be remiss if I didn’t post something about it. I am blessed to have a wonderful and loving father. Just as my kids are blessed to have wonderful and loving fathers. Yes, even if it didn’t work out with Sweet B’s father… he is a good father to her. And I couldn’t ask for a better father for Squeaker. Kyle is amazing. This year, however, I wanted to start thinking of unique gift ideas for Father’s Day. Sure, we’ll still do handmade cards and I might have Squeaker do a salt dough craft, but what else can we do and how can I also get his boys involved?
Activity Days Out
There is huge potential for an exciting and unique day when you book an activity package. A number of companies offer one-day or weekend activities designed to help beginners try something completely new. Here are a few activity gift ideas for dad:
* Driving race cars – perfect if your dad has always loved watching races,
* Off road driving,
* Traveling in a hot air balloon,
* Extreme water sports.
* Baseball games
Whatever you choose, make sure you take your dad’s interests and fitness levels into account. You may want to go climbing for the day, but your dad may not be up to it. The activity company will usually advise you on any prerequisites for the day.
Similar to the activities listed above, experience days can help you to learn something new, or try something you’ve always wanted to try, at an affordable price. You can usually find something your dad has always wanted to do. Here are a few ideas for you:
* Wine or whiskey tasting,
* Fishing trips, (Mommy Crusader and Her Knights shares some tips for a fishing trip with the kids)
* Cooking courses,
* Horse riding,
* Flying lessons,
* Theater shows,
A new experience doesn’t have to be a package deal that you pay a specialist company for, either. Maybe your dad has been talking about a walk he wants to do in the local area, or maybe he’s always wanted to visit a certain area of the country. You could even turn the experience into a longer trip together if you wanted to.
Homemade Gift Baskets
This may not seem as grand as the ideas mentioned above, but gift baskets can still make very unique gift ideas for dad if you put them together yourself and fill them with specific items you know he’ll love. This could mean food, movies, beer, wine, cheese, chocolate or even things that he can use to pamper himself!
Another suggestion for a unique gift idea from the kids? Make a coupon book and fill it with things like helping with yard work or things around the house.
One of the the best things about these unique gift ideas for Father’s Day is that you don’t have to do them on Father’s Day. You can just present your dad with the tickets and then you’re off to celebrate and make the most out of that day.
