Father’s Day coming up. What are you planning to do with the special Dad in your life? Here’s how you can make Dad’s day from the moment his feet hit the floor.

Maybe he’s had his eye on the latest gadget, or maybe he just wants to enjoy his favourite meal with his family. No matter what you’re planning, there’s no gift quite like quality family time. It’s a chance to show Dad just how much he means to you, not just on Father’s Day but every other day of the year, too. How can you make Dad’s day? We’ve got you sorted with some of the best Father’s Day ideas that will really knock him off his feet.

Cook His Favourite Brekkie

Is Dad a fan of bacon and eggs? Or does he tend to go for avocado on toast or banana bread with yoghurt? Whatever his morning favourites, start his day right with a delightfully tasty spread. Give him his fuel for the day and tingle his senses while the scent of frying sausage and tomatoes fills your kitchen.

If you want to go the extra mile, consider decorating the table or taking your brekkie outside under the warm morning sun. A full stomach will put a smile on any Dad’s face and set the tone for the rest of the day.

Spend Time at the Park

The park is like an extension of your own backyard. It’s a place where you can play games as a family, ride bikes, and make wonderful memories with the kids. As a bonus, it’s a great way to take advantage of the warmer weather after a cold winter spent indoors.

Use your imagination! While others might see a grove of trees, you might see the perfect place for a round of hide-and-seek. A big hill could easily become a track for a relay race. Father’s Day only comes once a year, so today’s visit to the park should be unlike any other, too.

Clean Up the BBQ and Get Ready for a Picnic

Now that spring has officially sprung, grilling season has arrived. If your Dad is the “master of meats” or loves experimenting on the barbecue, you will make his day by getting it ready for its first use in months.

Cleaning the grill plates can be a chore, especially if the barbecue hasn’t been fired up in months. You taking the work out of the process for him means he can get right to cooking.

And once you finish cleaning, make sure you have some of his favourite foods ready to sear! A family barbecue in your own backyard will help you kick off the spring season while celebrating Dad in a way he’ll appreciate.

Go Wild with a Family Game Night

Family game night is proof you don’t need to spend a lot of money to make priceless family memories. Even if you love playing the same games over and over again, every game is a little different than the one before it. You never know who will win next!

Plus, you can enjoy your favourite games in the comfort of your own home. Stock up on board games, look for fun yard games you can play outside, or get creative and make up your own! For example, use your collection of Lego blocks to build your own Putt-Putt course or marble maze. Or, if you have a stack of cardboard boxes, put them to good use and create your own life-sized maze! No matter how you decide to host a family game night, know that Dad is having just as much fun as the kids.

Improve Every Morning with Luxury Bedsmade Bed Sheets

If you want to get your Dad a special gift, something he’s guaranteed to use and love, consider a gift that will make life easier, like bedsmade bed sheets. The world’s first tailored sheet, bedsmade sheets are made of luxury organic cotton and are designed to hug any bed without bunching or coming off. What’s more, the tailored design takes the chore out of turning a tangle of covers into a neat, tidy, hotel-quality bed.

Having bedsmade sheets means you can effortlessly make the perfect bed every morning. You can wake up to the chaos of modern daily life and immediately have an impact—your first action of the day has a beautiful result every time and a knock-on effect on everything that comes afterwards. Bed “making” does indeed help “make your day”!

Whether you choose gifts, quality time, gestures of love like a homemade brekkie, or all of the above, take time to appreciate Dad this Father’s Day.
