Forget the usual routine, and focus on creating memories that will last a lifetime. Here’s 10 unique ideas to make dad feel truly special on his day.

Breakfast in Bed

An oldie but always worth the effort, start his day off right! Whip up his favourite pancakes or grab pastries from a local bakery.

Movie Marathon

Pick out some classic films or his favourite genre and settle in for a fun day of popcorn and laughs. Looking for suggestions? Real Simple’s pulled together a comprehensive list of 45 dad-worthy flicks.

Game On!

Challenge Dad to a board game tournament, a video game showdown, or a friendly basketball competition in the backyard.

Nature Calls

Explore a local park, hike a scenic trail, or have a picnic in the sunshine. Fresh air and new sights are a great way to bond.

DIY Spa Day

Draw him a warm bath, give him a relaxing massage (YouTube tutorials are your friend!), and let him unwind with a good book.

The Gift of Time

Help him with his weekend chores! Tackle the mowing, cleaning, or errands he usually does together. Freeing up the afternoon for all the other things on this list (or a little relaxation).

Memories on Display

Create a photo collage or a scrapbook filled with pictures that capture special moments with Dad (then flip through sharing your favourites).

Fire Up the Grill

Host a backyard BBQ with dad’s favourite grilled dishes and some refreshing drinks and a playlist curated with all his favourite tunes! Father’s Day Rule: he’s off grill duty!

Learn Something New

Take a cooking class together, explore a museum exhibit, or watch a documentary on a topic that interests him.

The Power of Words

Write dad a heartfelt letter expressing your love and appreciation. Recount favourite trips, inside jokes and the countless ways he’s shaped your life.


These are just a few ideas to get you started. The most important thing is to spend quality time together and show dad how much you care.
