We’ve already spent one Father’s Day in quarantine and a second one is coming up. But that doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate at all! After all, we’ve become reluctant experts on staging special occasions at home, from Zoom parties to super intimate weddings. With a little creativity, you can still make Father’s Day 2021 super special for your number one dude and the entire family. Read on for some of the best things to do on Father’s Day without leaving the house (or at least without venturing too far).
Treat Dad To A Delicious Cookout
Dads who cook are the best but for Father’s Day, it’s your time to treat him to a nice meal. Head to the kitchen to whip up dad’s all-time favorites, whether it’s bacon and pancakes or a hearty steak. Not much of a cook? Support your favorite local restaurant and order in! And of course, don’t forget to get the best decadent desserts from Miss B, such as lava cakes, ensaymada pudding, cuatros leche, and more.
Host A Dad-Themed Movie Marathon
Chill out with the fam and spend the day watching the best dad-themed movies for Father’s Day. There are plenty of great films to stream on Netflix, from heartfelt flicks on fatherhood (Like Father, The Pursuit of Happyness) or classic dad favorites (Die Hard, Indiana Jones).
Challenge The Brood To Game Night
Prepare some yummy snacks, put down your phones, and enjoy a good old-fashioned game night as a family. Whether you’re playing Monopoly, poker, or Jenga, it’s a great way to bond with everyone during Father’s Day. No games available? Get creative with charades or online quizzes via Kahoot!—or gift your dad with a new poker or mahjong set and make game nights a regular thing in your household.
Travel The World Via Virtual Tours
The world is opening up slowly, but a lot of Filipino families remain home-bound and unable to travel very far. Gift your travel-loving dad a jet-setting experience from the comfort of your own home this Father’s Day. Luckily, there are a wide variety of virtual tours available online, whether you want to embrace child-like fantasy at the Ghibli Museum or explore historic European castles and palaces. Check out five other unique virtual tours around the world that you can enjoy from the couch.
Hop On A Bike
Get a taste of the outdoors on a quick family bike ride or a memorable morning of quality time with dad. You don’t have to cycle too far; even just going around the neighborhood can get the heart pumping and the endorphins flowing. If the weather is good, this is a fun way to bond, enjoy fresh air and sunshine, and get in some cardio on Father’s Day. After working up an appetite, breakfast tends to taste extra delicious.
Try the special pandesal by Miss B as a post-ride treat.
Get Dad To Join In The Korean Love
If your pop still hasn’t been introduced to Korean culture, maybe this is the perfect time to convert him. Plan a Korean-themed Father’s Day, complete with K-pop, K-dramas, and a Korean menu. Even if your dad doesn’t end up falling in love with Hyun Bin, the food is a near-guaranteed win.
Taste Test Some Beers
A lot of dads will probably really enjoy trying out new craft beers, so why not make the family’s main event for Father’s Day? Whiskey or wine are also good options, depending on your dad’s drink of choice. Curate around five beers that you know your dad hasn’t tried yet, and gather the family for a taste testing party that will leave you all with a pleasant buzz.
Get Crafty With A Homemade Gift
For a crafty dad who enjoys working with his hands, making something together is a good way to mark the holiday. For instance, leather is beginner-friendly and a relatively easy medium to work with. Plus, at the end of the day, you’ll get a leather memento that will always remind you of good times with Dad. Check out leather DIY kits here, from passport holders to wallets.
