Parents are awesome, especially when you grew up in a household full of love and respect. If you’ve got a single father giving you his love and devotion, it’s time to think up of something special and unique to give back.
Here are some suggestions:
Go to a Game – If your father is a big sports fan, get a few tickets to enjoy his all-time favorite game up close and personal. It’s a fun way to see his favorite team in person and you can go all out with your bets so the loser gets to pay for dinner. If your dad isn’t that big on crowds, how about a sports bar? Same program, more drinks, fewer people, but with still the same cheers from lesser people.
It’s the Small Things – Parents can be pretty easy to please if you know what they love. Some are pretty old school and would love to reminisce about life before the internet or the mobile phone. Look for their old watches and bring them over to a watch repair store to get it restored, Haldavis.com suggests. If they have their old trinkets lying around like cameras and fountain pens, you can also get them fixed up to look brand new.
Have a Food Trip – Is your dad a connoisseur? Does he enjoy wine or charcuterie? Check out the many restaurants, bars, and wine tasting events across the city and book a table. The fancier the menus, the more expensive the prices will likely be. So prepare a solid budget. On the other hand, you could just prepare a great lunch or dinner for your parent. Choose to cook something special or their favorite dish. This arrangement works if your father doesn’t have the strength to travel.
It doesn’t have to be Father’s Day to celebrate your old man’s life and influence. As long as you have something to thank your Dad for, just keep on giving. May his words of wisdom continue to inspire and uplift you and here’s hoping that you both have a great time together.
