What do you do for Father's Day?
Calling all kids! Father’s Day is coming - just a couple of weeks to go until Sunday 16 June
so now’s the time to start thinking and planning for the perfect day for your dad. Obviously a sock purchase
is an excellent idea – and you’ve come to the right place here at ChattyFeet - but there are others things you can do to make the day even more special. The key is figuring out what your dad really loves to do – especially things you can share…
: dads love a barbecue of course (but don’t make him do the cooking unless he really wants to!). Take time to prepare his favourite dish or treat him to something delicious – he will be impressed! Or you could have lunch at a favourite pub or café. ‘Experiences’ are a growing trend and these can include brewing courses
, coffee roasting or winetasting. What dad wouldn’t want to learn how to brew his own beer?

Dashing dads: not all dads will want to spend the whole day with their feet up... You can take him to a music concert, a theatre show, a speedboat ride - or for something less demanding, perhaps a walk on the beach or in a local park or countryside would be fun. Maybe you could organise an activity with other dads and their kids for the afternoon.

Do it yourself!
A home-made gift is something any father will treasure. Perhaps you could design a Father’s Day card or paint his portrait? Or you could make a montage of your best images together, or maybe record a short fun video he can play back when he’s at work or away from home – guaranteed to get many views, and plenty of smiles!

The cheapest and easiest gift of all is quite possibly the best: tell your father what he means to you and how much you appreciate all his hardwork and support. You can do this any day of the year of course but on Father’s Day telling this to your dad will be more precious than any other gift.
