The Very Best Experiences to Give Dad this Father’s Day
Best Experiences to Give Dad this Father’s Day
They say that a dad leaves his mark on the world through the love he gives to his children. I have been blessed to have been given an amazing father. One that has taught me and my children so much, and has given us an indefinite amount of love.
I have also had the fortune to marry my best friend who is an amazing dad to both of our girls.
While Father’s Day comes around once a year, and we treat our dads to a special day, the fact is–they should be celebrated every day. Plus, after a while, dads really have everything they need. But, experiences are the way to go! I recently gifted my parents with a Niagara Helicopter Tour and they still talk about it today. I was so happy that I was able to give them what is for most, a once in a lifetime experience.
It’s truly priceless.
If you’re looking for the best experiences to give dad this Father’s Day, check out Breakaway Experiences! Read on for a list of gifts that are outside of the box and experiences that he will take with him for a lifetime.

How does it work?
All you have to do is choose an experience you will love for yourself or a loved one. Once you’ve purchased it, you can email or print it off. Then you or your loved one can enjoy a once in a lifetime experience when you or they choose. Since you don’t choose booking dates at the time of purchase you can do so at your own leisure.
There are no expiry dates. After a year, your certificate will hold its value forever. If the price of your experience goes up, you just have to pay the difference. You also have free exchanges. Just in case you change your mind or your loved one may not like the original experience. You have options! With this list, now you know the best experiences to give dad.
Ready to WIN?
I’ve teamed up with Breakaway Experiences to give away a $100 gift certificate for the best experiences to give dad! All you have to do is head over to Breakaway Experiences and answer, “Which experience would you want to try the most?” Plus, there are lots of additional giveaway entry options.
