A loving father on Father's Day surely needs a lot of attention and pampering at home. Need some ideas? Well you've come to the right place.
The activities may involve only you and your father or even the entire family. The purpose is simply to let your dad know that everything he does is appreciated. Show your dad how special he is to you and how important his presence is in your life. What follows is a list of some of the activities you can do for you father. Make sure you record them on your camcorder.
Invite your dad's dearest companions for a party. Ensure that he is surrounded by the company he prefers so that he can be himself and unwind amidst his buddies. Bake a special cake for him decorated with his favorite toppings and be sure to write a bold “Happy Father's Day” text. It could also be a surprise party involving some old school friends. Ask them all to wear moustaches in honor of your dad and ask them to bring along a hefty collection of old photographs. This will surely take him back to the old days. Purchase a fine blend of premium Scotch and/or Wine. A final touch could include hired violin players or a saxophone player to set the mood for the occasion.
Collect some old photographs of your dad from your grandfather or grandmother. Rummage through some old video cassettes pertaining to times when you were young. Arrange a large projection screen and a projector and play the cassettes with soft music. Make a collage of photos from the acquired snaps and a short movie by editing the clips yourself or get it done by someone. Nothing beats a walk down memory lane. At the end of it all, sing a song for your father. This is sure to make him feel like the best dad in the world.
If you've been saving up for your dad, this is the best opportunity to spend that cash and give him something really special. Your gifts could range from a variety of minor and useful gifts to the expensive and luxurious ones. Some of the gift ideas include :
It's time to exploit your imagination. Think of something that will surely put a smile on your father's face. How about painting something for him? Or perhaps singing a melodious number he cherishes? And why not make him a crown just to show that he is the ‘King' of your family? You could even cook his favorite dish and decorate it before serving. Or dedicate a poem for him by composing it yourself. Creativity has no limits and potentially anything from your brainchild will make your dad feel special.
This is a very interesting activity. Sit down with your father and inquire about his birth and childhood days leading up to what he did as a teenager, his college days and finally how he met your mother. Ask him about his favorite games or sports as a child and his favorite subjects, teachers, best friends. Ask him about his job and how he strives to get it. Conclude your interview by expressing your love for him by presenting him with a beautiful card and/or some chocolates. Reminiscing his childhood days is sure to make him feel rejuvenated.
This is a very minor activity but, to your dad, this could mean the world. Organize a special dance just for him. Plug in some smooth jazz, offer him a drink, and jive with him to the music. Make sure the lighting and decoration is suited to his mood. It is sure to make him feel young. If your dad is a good dancer and has taught you how to dance, this will be a treat for him. Either way, try and end the day with the dance, even if it’s amidst a party of guests.
