Father’s Day is fast approaching. How are you celebrating the dads in your life?
While lockdown restrictions are slowly lifting, the safest — and most stress-free — way to spend the day is at home, while socially distancing. We’ve written up a mini guide on some fun ways to celebrate Father’s Day 2020, whether you’re with your dad at home, or sending love from afar.
Just because you’re spending the day with your dad at home, doesn’t mean you can’t make it special. Starting the day with a delicious homemade pancake brunch is a great way to get going. In fact, why not plan a full day of special meals? If your dad has a local favorite pizza place, burger joint, or takeaway spot, you can show him you’re thinking of him while also supporting local businesses. If you’re not with your dad for the day, you can also order him some of his favorite food from afar.
There are plenty of Father’s Day activities that can be done inside or virtually. Board games make for a fun and raucous day at home— we’d especially recommend Risk! If your household is big enough and you have outdoor space at your disposal, organize a family game of flag football, or tag, to work off those pancakes. If your family is spread afar, organize a virtual Quiz game — bonus points if you make it dad-themed.
If you’re looking for a gift to give your dad but not sure where to start, we have a few ideas. First, Goldbelly is a relatively new platform that lets you deliver gourmet food and gifts from famous places around the country straight to your dad’s stoop — think deep dish pizza from Chicago, lobster rolls fresh from Maine, or bagels straight from New York’s delis. Another idea is to think of getting your dad a new hobby he can enjoy while waiting out lockdown. Has he ever mentioned wanting to paint, lift weights, or build model planes? Now’s the perfect time to start — you can order everything he needs straight to his home.
No matter how you choose to spend the day, the thought is what counts the most. Make sure to show your love and support for all the fathers in your life, as well as those you know who are dedicating their time as essential workers. Stay safe, and we’ll hopefully see you soon!
