This year Father’s Day falls on June 21. As the world continues to cope with Covid-19 and slowly come out of quarantine, celebrating and getting together with dad this Father’s Day may look different. With large social gatherings, sporting events and dining out options limited, you can still make the day extra special. If you’re looking for a little inspiration on how to spoil dear old dad this year, we’ve got you covered. From taking over the barbecue reins to updating his wardrobe to gifting him a craft beer membership, the possibilities are virtually endless. Here’s a few of our favorite ways to help you show dad how much you love and appreciate him.
Hangout with Dad
For those families separated by miles seeing dad these days is much easier thanks to Google Hangouts. Soaring in popularity during the pandemic for getting together with distant relatives and with coworkers for Friday afternoon happy hours, the app is a great way to stay in touch. It allows both one-on-one and group conversations, texts, and voice and video chats between users. You can access Google Hangouts online through Gmail, Google+ websites, or by mobile apps. The best way to wish dad a happy Father’s Day safely is to preschedule a Hangout meeting. If you’re unfamiliar with the process learn how here.
Buy Dad a New Hat
It’s a fact that dads wear many hats. Well, maybe not the types that actually go on their heads but now can be the time to change that. While the man in your life may prefer to go hatless, trendsetting hats are all the rage. For the dapper dad a Fedora, Bowler, or Flat Cap are timeless. When paired with a tailored suit they add just the right amount of panache for an elegant evening out. But for most dads taking the top spot on their heads is the dad hat. This casual and very versatile headwear can be worn just about anywhere. From golfing to cheering on his favorite sports team to hanging on the beach and walking the dog, they can also be worn confidently while dining out. Dad hats sport a super cool laid-back vibe and come in many different colors.
Update His Wardrobe
If your dad’s office attire has shifted in the last few months from ties and collared shirts to pajamas and slippers, it may be time to help him rethink his wardrobe. Instead, give Dad a pair of Bermuda shorts he can wear to his home office. Pair it with a matching Hawaiian shirt and sandals. A Panama hat completes the ultimate summer look. Before you know it he’ll be taking his office to the beach. Cross your fingers. Hopefully, he’s also booking the entire family on a vacation to a tropical paradise destination.
Take Over the Barbecue Grill
If your dad is the self-proclaimed barbecue boss in your household, this Father’s Day relieve him of his duties. For a backyard bash he’ll never forget plan a meal meant for the boss. Remember to keep dad’s palate in mind. Juicy bacon cheeseburgers, spicy barbecue chicken wings, melt-in-your mouth brisket and seafood like cedar planked salmon are festive and great Father’s Day menu options.
For a creative twist on a barbecue staple try Beer Can Chicken. Complement with yummy side dishes like Mexican Street Corn, a summer salad, barbecue beans and corn bread. End the meal with a decadent dessert that will surely satisfy dad’s sweet tooth. Why not try your hand at crafting a classic chocolate layer cake, delectable turtle brownies, or peanut butter pie? Adding an extra dose of love and a generous spoon full of sugar will no doubt make him smile.
Enroll Dad in a Craft Beer of the Month Club
Offering unique flavors and styles for the diverse palate, a Beer of the Month Club gift membership is a great idea for dads that like to experiment with different tastes. The craft beer scene is one of the hottest trends in the U.S. These extraordinary libations are only limited by the imaginations of their creators. Whether dad prefers his beer crisp and clean, or spicy and fruity, there’s no limit on the unique flavor combinations. You can purchase dad a subscription online. While subscriptions vary, for the most part they consist of 12 bottles of award-winning beers per month. Free shipping included. Another option is to make dad a member of a local craft brewery.
