A SPECIAL DAY JUST FOR HIM
18 June is Father’s Day. Here are some ideas for treating your dad or father figure.
KING OF HIS CASTLE Let him be king for the day – make him coffee or tea when he wishes, and let him sit back while you do the household chores. Or make gift coupons he can exchange for a favour, such as a shoulder rub, washing his car or cleaning out the garage. A SUNDAY DRIVE AND ICE CREAM Nothing is more relaxing than a scenic drive on a Sunday afternoon. Treat him to his favourite ice cream afterwards.
TIME FOR TWO If you have younger siblings, offer to babysit so your parents can enjoy some downtime together. A TRIP DOWN MEMORY LANE
Create a memory book filled with pictures of you both, and put captions on some of the best ones of you growing up with your dad.
TAKE A HIKE! If he’s the adventurous type, join him for a hike. Pack in some tasty snacks and enjoy a picnic once you get to your destination. MOVIE NIGHT Turn down the lights, get out the blankets and popcorn, and put on his favourite movie. (Yup, even if it’s black-and-white and was released in 1920).
