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.
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
