Father's Day is just around the bend, and it's time to start planning something to celebrate the fathers in your life! This blog is focused more on making your husband feel special, but feel free to take any of the ideas and use them to make your dad or grandfather feel loved this year, too! Let's dive in:)
Get The Kids Involved
Celebrating Father's Day with your kids is such a special time to teach your kids selflessness and celebration of others. Get them involved with your Father's Day plans!
Create Some Homemade Cards
Nothing is better than receiving homemade cards from your kids. While dad's at work or running errands, bust out your stickers, markers, construction paper, glue, and sparkles for the world's best Father's Day cards. Let your kids go to town and help them write sweet messages inside! Dad will love a homemade card way more than any store-bought one:)
Bake Something Yummy
If you love to bake, Father's Day is the perfect opportunity to bake your husband's favorite! Get the kids involved by letting them pour and stir ingredients as you bake. Check out some of these recipes your husband will absolutely love ~ they look delicious and perfect for Father's Day!
Do Something Special
If your husband has more of an adventurous spirit, getting out of the house and doing something special might be the best way to celebrate him this Father's Day. Here are some simple and fun ideas:
Have a Fancy Date Night
Maybe dad just wants some special time with wifey this year ~ so plan a fancy date night to celebrate! Get dressed up, hire a baby stitter (fun for the kids too!), and take him to his favorite restaurant. Make it a surprise to make it even more special!
Go on a Hike
Celebrating an active dad this Father's Day? Take him and your family on a hike or bike ride! Let him choose the trail and treat him to a lunch out afterwards for a fun family outing. Another cute option is packing a picnic lunch to enjoy at the end of a long hike! You can relax and enjoy the view ~ the best way to celebrate Father's Day in my opinion;)
Let Dad Go Fishing
If your husband has been working hard the last couple of months, Father's Day is the perfect opportunity to give him the rest and space he needs. Let him go fishing with his buddies or hunting for the weekend as a little break in the normal routine of life. He'll appreciate having a little break from all the business and getting to do something he loves!
Stay In For The Night
Staying in for the night isn't any less special, and if your husband is more of an introvert, this is the perfect way to celebrate him this Father's Day.
Cook His Favorite Meal
Cook your husband's favorite meal with all the fixings to make him feel special this Father's Day. And if your husband isn't picky, pick a recipe from the list here and try something new. This is also a great opportunity to get your kids involved with celebrating dad!
Have a Game Night
If your husband is a big gamer, have a game night this Father's Day! Let him choose his favorite games (even if it's Halo) and maybe even invite a few friends over to celebrate together. Whether you're playing board games, card games, or video games, any dad will love having some good old friendly competition to celebrate.
Netflix + Chill
It's been a long week, and sometimes the only thing you really want to do at the end of the day is watch Netflix and chill. Get your husbands favorite snacks, put the kids to bed a little early, and snuggle up on the couch for a relaxing Father's Day night.
Get Him a Gift He'll Actually Like
Okay, we know dads are some of the hardest people to shop for. He already has too many mugs, if he needs clothes he just buys them, and you already got him the little gadgets he's been wanting for Christmas.
We released a Father's Day Gift Guide a few weeks back, and we think you'll love the gift ideas we've included! They are creative and functional, so you're sure to impress and surprise your husband when you give him one of these gifts;)
Our co-founder Kirsten also wrote a cute little blog on Father's Day gift ideas a few years back, and her ideas are so creative and fun! Check out her gifts here.
Besides these cute gift guides, here are a few more Parker Baby ideas your husband (and you!) will love this year. Functional and stylish for the whole family!
^^ Our Diaper Backpacks aren't just stylish and functional for mom! We made sure our diaper backpacks would be something even dad isn't embarrassed to wear around ~ and with 10+ pockets, he'll approve of how functional it is;)
^^ If dad loves taking his mini-me for runs or walks around the neighborhood, this cute Multi-Purpose Cover is the perfect gift for him this Father's Day. Plus, the Storm print is boyish and adorable for any Father's Day hike with the whole fam.
^^ Our Felt Diaper Caddies are designed for diaper and nursery organization, but they are also great for office storage! Grab one of our caddies for your husband's home office this Father's Day and pack all the essentials inside: pens, notebooks, a coffee mug, sticky notes, etc. He will love it!
Good luck and Happy Father's Day!!
