6 Last Minute Father's Day Ideas Dad Will Love
Easy but memorable ideas to make Dad feel special on Father's Day
This Mom's Talk post is all about Dads. Sunday is Father's Day and if you are looking for some last minute ways to show Dad how much you and the kids love him, these easy but memorable ideas will make it look like you have been planning his special day for months.
1. Breakfast in Bed. The classic. Why not make his favorite dish and have the kids help you present it to him? Or while relaxing out on the patio? Breakfast Burritos are a huge hit in our house and easy to make. Scramble eggs, saute some onions and red peppers. Warm some tortillas and your favorite salsa. Add a side of grated cheddar and sour cream. Viola!
2. Bake his favorite cookies. My hubby loves Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies so the kids and I make them for him on special occasions – his birthday, Christmas, and now Father’s Day. (Make sure the kids don’t eat too many kisses so you run out of them by the time the last batch is ready.)
3. An afternoon of golf. If your whole family plays golf, set up a tee time and spend the day outside. If not, call one of his best buddies and set up a play date for Dad.
4. Act like a tourist. Some of our best Father’s Days included a trip to downtown Chicago to hit some of the big tourist attractions. It makes us feel like we “traveled” somewhere for the day.
5. Pampering. Every Dad likes quiet and relaxation, right? Well, why not give him a massage? He’ll get an hour of peace and quiet and come home relaxed and feeling like jelly. (He'll be ready to start work again on Monday. Right!)
6. Cook together. Do you both like to cook? Why not take the day to make one of those all day recipes that you have been dying to try. Make homemade pasta. Make paella. Slow cook ribs or a BBQ brisket. You’ll have a relaxing day spending time together in the kitchen and then eating a fabulous, rarely cooked meal.
