Fun Father’s Day Activities that Dad Will Love

Design the Day Around Dad

Father’s Day is only a few short weeks away, making now the ideal time to begin preparing any plans for the perfect day. From the moment we’re born, dads have proven to be our biggest advocates, mentors, coaches, and heroes. He’s the person who teaches us some of the most important and valuable life lessons, and the man we measure most everyone else against. This year, make Father’s Day special with activities that are unique and memorable from years past. And fortunately for you, Figi’s has put together a few favorite Father’s Day ideas for every kind of dad. So, no matter how old or young, tall or short, quiet or loud, all you need to do is find the best fit for your dad and devote the day to doing the things he loves most.

Gear Up to Go Golfing

With Father’s Day taking place in the warm sunshiny days of summer, it’s an excellent excuse to get out on the green for a round of golf with Dad. Help bring out his inner golf guru with a surprise supply of the latest gear to get him game ready. Giving gifts related to your pre-arranged activity is always extra exciting, as it communicates the careful consideration that went into coordinating the day. He’ll love the valuable time together, and will cherish the company (as well as a little competition) out on the course. Don’t forget to snag some shareable snacks for the fairway to help sustain stamina and keep your A-game strong. Pick up some protein-packed pecans, peanuts and pistachios, as well as an assortment of other nutritious nuts, to provide the perfect packable snacks. We also suggest stocking up on your favorite fruits from this all-inclusive collection of delicious dried fruit.

Snack on dried fruits Fresh fruits are a healthy snack perfect for sharing Share a pecan gift with someone you love

Fuel His Fancy for Fishing

Another favorite foolproof Father’s Day activity for the whole family is to go on a fun filled fishing trip. It’s undeniable that Dad is one of the hardest workers and go-getters you’ve ever met, tirelessly ensuring that every end is always met and everyone’s needs accounted for. Spending the day free of his usual frustrations and stresses is just what Dad needs to feel refreshed. He’ll love the invaluable bonding time of sitting side by side next to the water, catching up on life, waiting for the fish to bite. And don’t forget to bring along some sweet treats and salty snacks to keep everyone energized and enjoying the day. We love this selection of tantalizing tidbits, composed of nourishing nuts, delectable dried fruit and tasty trail mixes. Treating Dad to a tranquil day by the water is by far the best tactic to thank him for everything that he does. And after all, isn’t he the one who always says “give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime”? Demonstrate how much you’ve always heeded his helpful words of wisdom and actively applied his advice to your everyday life.

Make Memories at a Museum

No matter what Dad’s interests or passions might be, the multitude of museums in cities everywhere make for a Father’s Day activity that is not only easily accessible, but also incredibly memorable and meaningful. Whether he’s an avid appreciator of art, strong supporter of sciences, totally taken with technology, or has an unquenchable hankering for history, most dads enjoy the stimulating stir of being surrounded by ancient artifacts and influential items. For a true exhibition enthusiast, try turning this into an annual tradition, venturing to visit a variety of as many museums as possible over the years, selecting certain ones that contain the things Dad cares about most. He’ll be excited to start a special new tradition that he gets to share exclusively with you.

Get Gourmet on the Grill

Dad, aka the self-proclaimed “grill master”, takes pride in pulling off a perfect party with his prestigious and unparalleled skills on the grill. This Father’s Day, surprise Dad with a special soirée, giving him the opportunity to show off his seasoned smarts for everything related to searing, sizzling, sautéing and stewing. You’re sure to turn up the heat when you unveil a few unexpected gifts that will inevitably elevate his ego even more. His excitement will be evident with each piece of equipment he opens.

Bond Over Beer

Give Dad the gratitude he deserves with a touching toast of the beverage he likes best. Carve out some quality time to completely commit to catching up with Dad, swapping stories and sharing sentiments. One of the best ways to adequately affirm your appreciation for his hand in helping to bring you into existence is bonding over a beer. There aren’t many other occasions that offer a similar opportunity to be as open with one another quite like the relaxed and at-ease atmosphere of a laidback, local lounge. Why not take advantage of the treasured time you have together and go tour one of the trendy and buzzworthy new breweries in town. Make it a mission to taste test every type of beer until you both believe you’ve found the one you like best. Better yet, now that Dad’s nailed down his number one choice, surprise him with a sneaky six pack of it sometime. Or make it even more memorable when you present him with a personalized growler, generously filled with his favorite new brew. Or opt for an item to help him stay hip, like a beer stein, custom created with his name on it. And for the beer buff who has it all, this grand assortment of personalized goods provides a perfect present, containing meaningful, monogrammed mementos.

Fun and Creative Activities to Celebrate Mother’s Day

Dedicate the Day to Doing What She Loves

If you’re wracking your brain trying to come up with a million different ideas for what to do on Mother’s Day, a word of advice – don’t overthink it. Moms spend so much time looking out for everyone else, making sure that all is accounted for and everything is running smoothly. Somehow they manage to remember every nitty gritty detail, all while keeping up with the countless school activities, play dates, soccer practices and little league games. And she does this all so flawlessly and consistently, as though it’s second nature to her. Which is why it’s so important to always appreciate the amazing things she does and give her proper recognition for routinely, and readily, keeping everything on track. And with the constant hustle and bustle of the day to day, it’s no surprise that the best gift you could give her is a day spent enjoying the simple pleasures in life. So, without stressing about how to celebrate Mother’s Day this year, simply consider her favorite things to do for fun and dedicate the day to doing that.

Prepare a Picnic in the Park

Mother’s Day conveniently falls in spring, one of the most beautiful and scenic seasons of the year, making it ideal to include an outdoor activity in the day’s plan. Nothing promotes a more peaceful and relaxed state of mind quite like spending time outside, soaking up some sun, unwinding under a tree and taking in the refreshing sounds of nature. Pamper mom with a planned picnic, providing the perfect way to enjoy a pleasant day in the park. Remember to pack the essentials, such as sunscreen, park games, a picnic blanket, basket, and a few favorite snacks and items for lunch. It’s important to pick elements that can be eaten and enjoyed with ease while sitting on a picnic blanket. A classic cheese and cracker combo is always a reliable recommendation, made even easier when you opt for a soft spreadable cheese or a buttery block of baby swiss. Bring along your favorite box of crackers to pair, and for an extra superior snack, snag some savory sausage or smokehouse meats to top off the gourmet picnic. Mom will be thrilled with the tranquil treatment of being able to enjoy quality time away from the chaos and commotion of everyday life.

Host a Brunch

Moms seem to almost always assume the role of the host for every occasion, holiday and dinner party. However, this is no easy task and can be extremely exhausting. This Mother’s Day, takeover her role and surprise her with something special. The best start to any Mother’s Day is to spoil her by letting her sleep in, a seemingly foreign concept to most moms. While she enjoys some much needed and well deserved z’s, fetch the rest of the family to help pitch in with the plan to produce the perfect brunch. She’ll be blown away with the surprise feast to start the day. Ensure a complete brunch spread delivery with a full selection of scrambled eggs, mouthwatering meats, popular pastries, baked breads, fresh fruit and her favorite juice. Most importantly, make sure to get a fresh pot of hot coffee ready for as soon as she wakes up.

Reserve Some Time for R&R Relief

Give her some time to rest and recover this Mother’s Day with a well-deserved day that’s dedicated to doting on her. Schedule a serene spa session or a mellow massage to help her relax and rejuvenate. Her unwavering devotion and constant support for everyone else deserves to be returned with equal recognition, and what better way than to spoil her with something special. Extend her spa relaxation and recovery time with some gifts and goodies that continue to pamper her post treatment. Light some candles, draw her a warm bubble bath and top it off with a few perfect products to keep her mind at ease and peace.

Make it Memorable for Mom

Whatever the activity of choice ends up being for the day, make sure it’s one that will be most meaningful and memorable for mom. There aren’t many days dedicated to celebrating her and it’s important to take full advantage of every moment to return the selflessness and thoughtfulness that she bestows on everyone else, every single day. Shower her with special surprises, fill the day with her favorite fun things to do, give her sweet gifts and goodies, and above all, show her how much she’s loved and appreciated, not just on Mother’s Day, but every day.

Unique Mother’s Day Gifts She’ll Love

Give Mom the Thoughtful Gift She Deserves

No matter how old, young, tall, short, this or that, there’s one extraordinary thing we all share – the amazing individual who gave us the gift of life – mom. And, considering that her bringing us into the world is not an easy task to repay, it’s important that we take full advantage of the one day a year that’s dedicated to celebrating her. This Mother’s Day, make mom feel extra special with something unique that shows her how meaningful she is to you. To help make this Mother’s Day one to remember, we put together a few of our favorite gift ideas, from custom creations to personalized presents, that will fill her heart with love, happiness, and joy.

Create a Custom DIY Gift Basket

From the very first art project we ever did as kids to our most recent masterpiece, her unwavering pride and admiration for everything we’ve ever created has made her our biggest fan since day one. So, evoke some of that same excitement and enthusiasm from her this Mother’s Day with a self-assembled DIY gift basket, handpicked and created by you. A thoughtful do-it-yourself option is the best way to show her how much you know and love her with a custom creation, filled with special surprises that are uniquely hers! Here’s how to select the individual items to help create an authentic ‘made with love’ feel.

Fill it With Her Favorite Foods

For the moms with food palates to match the pros, here are a few gourmet goodies that will speak right to her heart. We stand by the notion that a gift basket isn’t complete without each of the following components:

  • Some savor nuts
  • A flavorful cheese
  • A tasty meat option
  • And of course, something sweet

This fool proof approach ensures a beautiful and balanced basket that’s complete with the personalized picks that moms prefer.

Step 1: Select the Snacks

Begin by selecting a salty snack. Small snacks and finger foods provide a variety of wonderful uses that moms love. You’ll find everything including tasty appetizers for hosting a party, accommodating sides for any meal, and perfect post meal palate cleansers. A few of our favorites are found in these deluxe nut options and premium popcorn packs, full of flavor and variety. And don’t miss the selection of fine fruits to find something that will add a little extra boost for a bountiful basket.

Step 2: Choose a Cheese

Cheese, perhaps the backbone of any well-rounded gift basket, is an essential element due to the variety of textures and tastes it offers. It’s important to determine complexity, consistency and character when making your cheese selection, as each type delivers different flavors and uses. Our selection of artisanal cheeses has something to suit every mom, including sharp aged cheddars, soft creamy spreads, buttery baby swisses, gorgeous gourmet goudas, and so many more!

Step 3: Mix in a Meat

Moving on to the meat, it’s important to keep in mind the different tastes when determining the best fit for your basket. You’ll want to make the selection based on which of the flavorful options will best complement the existing elements in the basket. We recommend starting with our collection of savory sausages and smokehouse meats. With every item seasoned to perfection and slow cooked for a perfect smoky flavor, these are guaranteed to be a hit with Mom.

Step 4: Select Something Sweet

Lastly, top it all off with one of mom’s favorite sweet treats that she can’t resist. Whether she prefers a batch of rich and creamy fudge, a premium box of decadent chocolates, or an assorted variety of fun and fruity candies, these tantalizing options offer something sugary for every mom.

Assemble it All

Now that each part of your present has been picked, sit back and relax while it gets delivered right to your door! In the meantime, get your creative juices flowing. As soon as everything arrives, you’ll need to assemble it all. The best way to wrap it all together is in a large basket. Fill the basket with each of the gifts, spacing them out proportionately. Fill any large empty spaces or gaps with colorful tissue paper, keeping everything securely in place, and complete your creation with a fancy ribbon or large bow. She’ll be overwhelmed with joy as she opens her gift, full of the delicious delicacies she loves most, and custom created by you.

Make it Meaningful With Something Personal

Another great gift idea is to give her something special that’s made specifically for her. A personalized present not only gives her a gift she loves, it’s even more meaningful by the fact that it’s made exclusively for her with her name on it. It becomes so easy to fall into the habit of giving the same gifts, year after year, that are frequently forgotten about. Surprise her this year with the sweet sentiment of a personalized gift. Here are a few of the most popular products that can be personalized just for mom.

Giving a Personalized Gift She Loves

When choosing a personalized gift for mom, it’s important to start with something near and dear to her heart. This assortment of meaningful mementoes is filled with collectables that mom will cherish for years to come. Watch as she proudly displays family photos in a personalized frame, or cooks up her signature recipe in a custom casserole dish. If you still don’t know what item to opt for, our compilation packs are exploding with generous portions of delicious treats and is sure to be such a hit!

Show Mom How Much You Care

As Mother’s Day quickly approaches, let’s all remember the important reasons to celebrate mom. Shower her with the love and appreciation that she deserves and make the day as special as she is to you. And even though we can’t come close to repaying her for everything she’s done, surprise her with sweet sentiments and gifts of gratitude. So whether you choose a creative DIY gift basket, a personalized gift, or some other memorable Mother’s Day gift, the most meaningful items are the ones that come from the heart and let her know how amazing she is. After all, she’s the reason you’re here in the first place.

The Unique Christmas Gift Baskets Everyone’s Really Been Wanting

If There Were a Thirteenth day of Christmas, Give Them What They Really Want – a Christmas Gift Basket

Besides the fact that whomever it was that gave all these gifts to their true love had an unlimited budget (FIVE golden rings), probably owned a farm (the first eight days are all animals), and had their own personal set of performers, they definitely did not realize what their true love probably wanted all along – food. Not many have the stamina to make it through four whole days of watching ten lords a’leaping and listening to twelve drummers drumming. That’s enough to make anyone want to ditch a day and hangout on the couch watching Netflix with chocolate and some snacks.

Luckily, we thought of adding a thirteenth day of Christmas. This is a day your recipient can have to themselves with our selection of Christmas food gifts and unique gift baskets.

On the Thirteenth Day of Christmas My True Love Gave to Me…Thirteen Holiday Treat Carousels

Chocolate Carousel with chocolate, toffee, and peanut butter Holiday Favorites Carousel with Cashews, Mixed, Nuts, and Candies 12 Candies of Christmas

Day thirteen would consist of English butter toffee, peanut butter cups, and chocolate chip cookie dough bites – all found in our Chocolate Carousel. For something a little more unique, our 12 Candies of Christmas tin contains tasty Lemon Drops, rock candy, ribbon candy and more. Once they indulge in two or three of these delicious tins filled with their favorite candies and treats, they will for sure want to sleep the rest of the day away. How’s that for an exciting Christmas gift?

On the Thirteenth Day of Christmas My True Love Gave to Me…Thirteen Wisconsin Meat and Cheese Gift Baskets

The Holiday Feast Gift Box is a variety pack filled with delicious cheese, meats, and spreads. We've mixed sweet with savory in the Chocolate Greetings Gift Box The A+ Snack Selection has 10 treats, sure to delight anyone

As a best seller on our list nearly every year, the Holiday Feast Gift Box is one of many Wisconsin meat and cheese Christmas gift baskets they could never say no to. Cheddar cheese, pepper cheese, and Monterey jack are among the many types of Wisconsin cheeses you’ll find this year in our selection of unique Christmas gift baskets. For something a little sweeter to go along with the delicious meats and cheeses, check out our Chocolate Greetings Gift Box or the A+ Snack Selection which include a variety of chocolates and sweet treats.

On the Thirteenth Day of Christmas My True Love Gave to Me…Thirteen Nut and Snack Gifts

Cheesy Dip and Crunchy treats for dipping come in this delicious snack gift Santa's Trail Mix includes mixed nuts and chocolate covered treats Chocolate covered pretzels are a delightful treat and some are covered in sprinkles!

It is well known that anything in a tin will be gone fast. There’s something about a festively decorated container holding all the snacks that makes your gift recipient appreciate it more and think, “these have to be gone before the end of December”. Also, a tin filled with healthy nuts, like cashews and almonds, means they won’t feel terrible after spending all day snacking. But, if you are going to give something sweet, there’s nothing more satisfying than a tin full of milk chocolate covered pretzels.

We hope you enjoyed our Christmas gift giving guide this year, Happy Holidays!

Should I Give a Christmas Gift to My Coworkers?

Ask Yourself These Seven Questions When Considering Giving Your Coworkers or Boss a Gift During Christmas

Question 1: Does my company have a policy around gift giving?

This is the easiest place to start. Some larger corporations may have a policy against gift giving in general, or have some limitations on what you can give (homemade food items, for example). Check with HR and see if there is a policy you can reference, or some anecdotes they can share with you from their time there.

Question 2: Does my company do a “sponsored” gift giving activity?

This would be along the lines of a White Elephant party or Secret Santa and would be announced to the company as a whole. Since these are optional, it is best etiquette to engage in this office activity. It’s only fun when everybody participates and in general the cap for Secret Santa or White Elephant office gifts is around $10-$20. If your company has not declared a cap, suggest to whoever is organizing the event to institute a cap as it puts everybody participating more at ease.

Question 3: My office is doing a Secret Santa gift exchange, what should I get?

Keeping your budget under $20 is always a safe bet, unless your office communicates otherwise. Stick with general items that everybody can appreciate, like food gifts or gift cards, if you don’t know the recipient that well. Sometimes an office will let everybody write down a few interests of theirs on their name card, so that when they are chosen from the hat, you’ll have an idea of what to get that person. Suggest this to whoever is organizing the event if there are a lot of new faces in the office, or if you are in a large office with a lot of employees who wouldn’t otherwise know each other that well.

Question 4: My office is doing a White Elephant gift exchange, what should I get?

White Elephant exchanges can be a great time, but depending on your company culture, be wary with how witty and comical you are willing to get. Remember, a White Elephant gift does not have to be outrageous, just…well, tasteful.

Question 5: Should I give my boss a gift for Christmas?

In general, there is no expectation for an employee to give their boss a gift. While you might think it is a nice gesture, you don’t want your coworkers to know you were the only one who did so – it makes them feel bad and might seem like you are trying too hard. If you are a real holiday spirited gift giver, consider writing a well thought out card saying how much you appreciate your boss’s help throughout the year and wishing them and their family a happy holiday.

If you work on a small team, sometimes a coworker might suggest doing a group gift for your manager. If you have any concern over budget, make sure the group is clear with how much everybody is comfortable spending.

If the group opts for a combined gift, consider something that can be easily appreciated and in festive spirit, like a Christmas cookie gift basket, or a gift card to their favorite lunch spot.

Question 6: I am a manager, should I give my employees a gift?

There is no expectation for you to give your employees a Christmas gift, unless it is clearly part of your company culture. However, it is a nice way to show your appreciation for their hard work because in some fashion their work is a reflection of how well you are doing your job. If you have many employees working under you, doing something simple like a personalized handwritten card can really have a positive effect.

If your company has an inventory of affordable items like company swag, including coffee mugs or pens, these make great compliments to a personalized card. Or a small gift card to the local coffee shop usually bodes well with people.
