To The King Of Our Castle: HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!

How to make Father’s Day special while at home!

The date when Father’s Day is celebrated varies from country to country. Loved ones make a special effort for their fathers or father figures during this day. It is a relatively modern holiday, so different families have different traditions. These can range from a simple phone call or greeting cards to large parties honouring all father figures in an extended family. Father’s Day celebrations stress the important role of fathers in nurturing children and building a stronger society.

Unfortunately, due to the current situation worldwide, most people have had to cancel their pre-planned celebrations and gatherings. You can’t go out on a picnic or a movie date with your father. And now that we’re all basically in lockdown, don’t let the physical isolation stop you from enjoying this special moment. That’s why we list down ideas that make your dad the happiest on Father’s Day! Even if you’re stuck at home, you can still have a special day with your dad with a little planning.

Every day we must make our parents happy to give back the things they did to us. Even the simplest way can make them happy. It is important to set up a surprise especially on every special occasion like birthdays, fathers day and Christmas day. Why not consider these presents as birthday gift ideas or Christmas gifts ideas.  Undoubtedly your father would be the happiest man on earth!

Set up a video call with your Dad if you don’t live with him.

Thanks to modern technology, you can still see your dad even if you can’t visit in person. That’s right — video call apps aren’t only there so you could use them for your work conference calls. Some video chat applications, like Zoom, let you set your digital background. Surprise him by uploading a Father’s Day-themed background. Sharing a virtual meal, playing fun card games online, creating a shared playlist, or belt out together in a virtual karaoke are just some fun ways to celebrate during the quarantine. Physical presence is not everything; if you can be emotionally there with them, they would need nothing else! 

Give Greetings Cards.

If you are no longer able to deliver a card in person, you can use an online delivery service, just be sure to check the delivery time, because some are now taking longer than usual to reach the recipient. E-greeting cards can be an option too. Get a special Father’s Day e-greeting card with your heartfelt wishes beautifully imprinted on it. Send it directly to your father’s email inbox or WhatsApp and surprise them on a special day. Of course, if you’re living with your Dad, it might be nicer to make them one from scratch. Let your creativity run wild, using whatever materials you have at home (old magazines and newspapers, art resources, cereal packets etc.) to create a truly personal card.

Have a movie/game night if he wants a cozy family celebration.

Spending the evening at home with the family can be a great way to celebrate too. Gather your dad’s favourite movie or TV series or pull out some board games and video games are also great to break out some fun. 

Order takeout from his favourite restaurants.

Bring the food to him if you can’t take Dad to his favourite restaurant. Have it delivered right to your door and enjoy your delicious lunch or dinner as you have a dad-to-dad conversation. You can also create your own Father’s Day dish and set a restaurant experience at home.

Bake a delicious cake & prepare his favourite meal.

If you want to make something extra special, prepare his favourite breakfast, lunch, and dinner with the help of your mother and siblings. Your delicious and tasty surprise will fill him with happiness. Father’s Day surely demands a delectable cake, too! Bake your own version of Father’s Day cake. 

Set up an indoor party.

Put on some music and set an indoor party with the family. There are many recorded concerts online and live streams. You can also search out virtual raves and recreate the nightclub experience in your home and enjoy some live beats from professional DJs. 

Personalized and Hand-Made Gifts.

You have got all the time in the world when you are at home in lockdown. With some of the best DIY gift tutorials available on the web, you can make an explosion box, scrapbook, string of memories, personalized diary, etc. for him. The secret ingredient is your creativity and willpower to design an ultimate Father’s Day present for him. A knitted scarf would be amazing! 

Surprise gifts delivery.

A surprise gift delivery at such a time will surely bring a wide smile to his face. Surprise him with either clothes from his favourite clothing line, a caricature, perfume, shoes or a bunch of flowers and send them to his doorstep with contactless delivery. 

So, these were the ways for Father’s Day celebration at home and far from home.
