Give Dad the Best Father’s Day Ever!
Father’s Day is right around the corner. It’s one of my favourite holidays because I love showing my dad and husband how much they mean to us.
This year, I have something planned for my dad and husband. I plan on throwing them a BBQ! I will invite them over and they will unknowingly have a day completely devoted to them. Complete with a gift they will love. Here is how to give dad the best Father’s Day ever!
Whether you decide on a BBQ or plan to host a formal shindig at your home, here is how to give dad the best Father’s Day ever!
Give him an invitation
Make it a special Father’s Day BBQ by creating an invitation for him. Making something by hand is always special, he’ll love it. This is a great opportunity to get the grandkids involved. There really isn’t anything more heartfelt than that! Make it personalized and add a family picture. It doesn’t need to be super fancy! Just an invitation telling him to be there or be square.
Create a grilling menu
What else could dad love more than having a day full of grilled food? I like to create a menu ahead of time. This helps me feel more prepared for the big day. I put the menu out for everyone to see. Of course, it is filled with my dad and husband’s favourite foods.
Don’t let him lift a finger
When the big day rolls around, it’s time to let dad relax. He’s not allowed to lift a finger. Whether you’re doing this for your husband or for your dad or some other important guy in your life, they’re going to love it. It’s clear the men in our lives spend a ton of time caring for us and this is their day. I do what I can to make sure my dad/husband don’t lift a finger. Of course, grilling is an exception.
Take him out for a special activity
If your dad just doesn’t like to sit still and you need to get him out of the house for the day, here are some ideas. Take dad golfing, fishing, or on a hike. Let him spend some one on one time with nature. Take dad out for a drive or watch a movie with him. I can guarantee that the #1 thing your dad wants to do on Father’s Day is spend time with you!
Spend time picking out the perfect gift
No doubt that my favourite place to shop for Father’s Day is at Best Buy. Everything you could possibly want to buy for one person is available there. Here are some of my favourite gift ideas for dad.
If your husband or dad love to grill, they’ll love a brand new portable grill like the Napoleon BBQ grill. The best part though, is that there are so many options to get. You can see all of the items in the picture above and even more in Best Buy’s Father’s Day gift guide.
- Chromebook- Think of everything dad could do with a new Chromebook!
- Samsung Galaxy Tablet – Perhaps the dad in your life needs a new tablet.
- Samsung Smart Watch – Why not? This watch literally does everything!
- Jaybird Headphones – As much as dad loves you, he may want a little peace and quiet from time to time.
- Napoleon BBQ Grill – Um, I think I know what my husband is getting for Father’s Day!
Have the BEST Day!
Since Darasak loves to grill, he was over the moon with his early Father’s Day gift. The grill is small and mighty but, it features a high heat 14,000 BTU ceramic infrared burner and heavy gauge stainless steel cooking grids to deliver a superb sear. It offers 215 sq. in. of cooking surface, enough to grill up to 15 four-inch burgers.
Of course, we are inviting our dad over to enjoy a delicious meal, good drinks and great conversations. All they have to do is relax but, Darasak insists on manning the grill.
I can’t say I blame him, it’s a beaut.
Whatever you decide to give dad, make sure it’s something he will enjoy. Hopefully this list gives you a little inspiration and if you’re a dad reading this, I hope you see something you like!
