With Father’s Day just around the corner, it’s time to start making those plans for their special day. For every kind of dad, we like to make sure they know they’re worth their weight (and more!) in gold, but planning for Father’s Day can sometimes be quite tricky. Below we’ve provided a few ideas to get those thoughts flowing on how you would like to spend the day with Dad.
Don’t forget that you can also book a room or outdoor area with SummitCare to celebrate the day with us and your loved one who is in our care. Simply give our team a call on 1300 68 55 48 to see what events or promotions are happening in your SummitCare home for Father’s Day today.
Father’s Day Ideas:
Does your Dad have a taste for the hops or vino? Treat him to a special afternoon of specialty beer/wine tasting, peppered with a decent platter of snacks or lunch in between. It’s a great way to socialise and he can bring home some fine selections to remember the day. Of course, needless to say, drink responsibly and ensure appropriate transport.
Does your Dad fancy a round of Golf? There are many ideas to choose from, such as purchasing a professional lesson from a pro, you could play a game or two together, or purchase equipment or clothing as well. Playing the day away with Dad on the green can be a fantastic way to spend some quality time, and can be great exercise too!
Catch a Game
Does your Dad enjoy a game of footy or cricket? Another great way to spend some time and bond as a family unit, is by barracking for your favourite teams together. Take the day and bring an esky of your favourite drinks and snacks and sit back together to watch your sporting heroes at work doing what they do best, while you catch up with Dad for his special day.
Cook Up a Storm
Does Dad like to get into the kitchen to cook up a storm? Why not set up a cooking class for you and Dad to spend some time together and discover (or rediscover) your favourite cuisines. Not only can it be instructive and provide practical life skills, if you have a flair for food you just know that eventually you’ll be sampling your favourite meals together.
Break Out the DIY
Is your Dad quite the handy-man? Are there possibly twenty or more projects left unfinished around the home? Why not take the day to work together and turn that house into a home he’s happy with. It’s a great way for spending quality time together, and provides a great sense of accomplishment and pride, knowing he’s tackled the hard handy-man projects with the people he cares about most.
What’s On in Sydney?
Is there an event or activity happening near you for this weekend? Whether it be a concert, art exhibition, car show or expo, there is always something happening in this great city of ours. Hop online to see what’s on and pick an activity that suits you and your father’s interests. An outing for the day can be exciting, and still allows you to spend that time together to enjoy an activity you both have a common interest in.
Pamper your Pa
Does Dad need to wind down and relax? Why not treat him to a day at the spa? Some time spent allowing life’s stresses to melt away always does the world of good. A good massage, aromatherapy and perhaps even a few matching mud masks together is a fantastic way to say “I love you”. Let Dad be pampered for Father’s Day and treat him to the spa package he deserves.
Whatever you choose to do to celebrate that special man in your life, from all the team at SummitCare to you, we wish you all a very happy Father’s Day for this Sunday!
