Last Minute Father's Day Ideas

Hey everyone,


For some, Fathers Day this year may be different from previous years and this could be for several reasons; you may have lost your dad during the past year (or prior) and if you have, my sincere condolences to you! 🙏🏾 Maybe they live abroad and you are unable to visit. Whatever your reason may be, in this blog, I will discuss what you could do to brighten and make the most of Father's Day!



For those who are grieving over the lost of their dad;


Have a cry if you need to


Go to the cemetery to lay down some flowers


Have some time of reflection


Take out your album, home videos, etc and reminisce


Light a candle in remembrance of him


Have a small celebration


Cook/ buy his favourite meal/ dessert and enjoy it while reminising


Share stories about him with your children/ grandchildren etc


Contact someone who is a 'father-figure' in your life and send them some of the warmest of Father's Day wishes



For those whose dad is in a care home


Arrange a visit and take a gift that would brighten his day


Ask the home if you are allowed to take them out to the park for example, if the weather permits and ensure they are appropriately dressed for it


Make a phone call if you are not able to see him


If your dad is in hospital, visit him and take his favourite meal or dessert.



For those who are able to see their dad on fathers day;


Arrange to go on a walk together (if the weather permits)/ grab a coffee


Treat him to his favourite restaurant


Treat him to a home-cooked meal


Buy him a gift;


Groceries


E-vouchers


Something practical like a tie, socks etc



For those who live with their dads;


Decorate the front room with balloons or some DIY decorations


Breakfast in bed


Have a small celebration


Cook/ buy her favourite meal/ dessert and enjoy it


Go for a walk (if the weather permits)/ grab a coffee


Treat him to a home-spa day experience


Allow him to put her feet up and relax


Buy him something meaningful


Have a heartfelt conversation with him expressing your thanks and gratitude


If your dad is grieving himself, my condolences to him and the family and please refer to the above.

Happy father's day to your special man in advance!



All the best,
