8 Father’s Day Traditions to Start This Year

Give a Unique Gift He Can Appreciate All Year

start a truly unique father's day tradition by creating a space dads can enjoy all year long

Each year we get one special day devoted to reminding the fatherly figures in our lives just how much they mean to us. You guessed it, Father’s Day! Father’s Day is approaching, and approaching quickly and no matter how you’re celebrating dad this year, one thing that’s certain is that you’ll want him to feel special. Between gifts for the yard, the grill or anywhere else outdoors it can be hard to pick one thing that he wants or really even needs. With so many different options it can be hard to decide. But, have you ever considered creating a space where he can simply relax? A man cave is the perfect place for him to indulge in his favorite hobbies and kick back. Whether you have an entire garage to decorate or just a small space, has you covered with a wide selection of man cave ideas.

Plan an Outdoor Adventure

Father’s Day Traditions can be fun for the whole  family! Why not plan an outdoor adventure that will provide quality family time and create unforgettable memories. It could be a camping trip, a day of hiking or fishing, whatever outdoor activities your dad loves best. Being active and outdoors will allow time for relaxation and stress free family time, just what dads need to celebrate their day!

Family Vacation

June is the perfect time to take a family vacation. What could be better than a week-long vacation of fun and relaxation for a new Father’s Day tradition! Pick a destination your family will love and spend the week just being together and celebrating dad. Have a favorite spot? Revisit and create new memories each year. Want to try something new and exciting? Choose a location you’ve never been before.

Give the Gift of Fun

Plan a day for dad to spend doing his favorite hobbies for a great Father's Day Tradition

My husband works very hard to provide for us. He is training to be a cardiologist, so he works long hours most of the time. A perfect gift for the dad who work a lot is to plan a day for his favorite outing/hobby. My husband likes to play golf, so a gift of 18 holes would be perfect for him. What about the dads in your life? What do they enjoy most? Start the perfect Father’s Day Tradition by giving the gift of fun!

Have a great gift you can’t wait to give your dad? Maybe it’s too big to wrap and you are looking for a unique way to give his gift. One way we like to give gifts is through a scavenger hunt. We plant clues that lead to each new clue, until you find the gift. It is so much fun! Dads will love receiving their present in this unique way, and you can do it over and over with new clues every year!

Give Dad the Day Off

Give dad the day off for a relaxing Father's Day Tradition

This is personally my favorite Father’s Day Tradition idea. Dads work very hard and need a break from time to time, so let dad rest! Let him sleep in, serve him breakfast in bed, have him do one (or more!) of his favorite activities. Take care of the yard work and other chores for the day! I also like the idea of dads paying this forward. Is there a new dad they know that could use the day off? He could take care of the yard work and other chores for a day. How meaningful would that be?
