Father’s Day | Celebrating With Dad From Home

Celebrating Father's Day at Home with the Family

When Father’s Day rolls around on June 19th, we might find ourselves asking – what do we get for our beloved dads? It can be tough to try and celebrate special occasions with our Asian dads, who often refuse offers of fancy meals or expensive gifts. They say that it’s a waste of money and time, and that they don’t need anything else in their lives.

So, what do you get for the father who claims to have everything he ever desired? Let’s go over some thoughtful ideas of what to do on Father’s Day that will make your proud papa feel loved and appreciated for days to come.

Spend Some Time Together

It goes without saying that your father would enjoy spending time with you. Whether you’re watching TV, walking the dog, cleaning the kitchen, or going shopping, your father would probably appreciate it if he could join you in those activities. On the other hand, you should also try joining in on your father’s hobbies to spend time with him.

Anything from a 500-piece puzzle to constructing a card castle together is a great way to bring joy to your father’s heart. If you want to unwind, join your father on the couch with a soda and some chips and watch his favorite channel. It doesn’t matter if you’re watching the 241st episode of his favorite Taiwanese drama; what matters is that you’re with him.

DIY With Dad

Remember those corny little art projects that you were made to do back in school? You most likely presented it proudly to your parents, and chances are that they might still have it!

Doing a little DIY project such as a scrapbook or even a Canva-made photobook of dad’s best goofy moments. Another fun idea at home would be to reenact moments from your youth, such as playing basketball or learning how to ride a bike for the first time. A bonus would be to try to recreate the photo as closely as possible, wearing the same clothes and hairstyle as you did back then. Your dear old dad would love the brief journey down memory lane.

Taking the time to think of a thoughtful gift that you can make at home will make the gift even more special.

Take Dad Shopping – Online!

Your dad’s shopping experience might only consist of going to malls and department stores, as he most likely wouldn’t want to buy something he can’t touch.

With the popularity of e-commerce at an all-time high, it might be a good idea to sit down with your dad and show him what goodies are available online. From electronics to household goods, to clothes and socks galore, you could even let dad add things he likes to the shopping cart, then check them out for him as a surprise!

The Way To A Man’s Heart Is His Stomach

Food is a staple gift for any man, including our own fathers! Nothing says “I love you, dad!” more than a delicious and hearty meal. 

Cook up his favorite dish for him, or make him a surprise breakfast in bed. Alternatively, cook with him in the kitchen and give mom a break. If cooking is not your strong suit (or dad’s!), or if you live miles away, you can order something from his favorite restaurant  and allow your father to enjoy a pleasant meal from the comfort of his own home.

Another idea would be to arrange for a yummy food gift!

Simply Hamper’s Box of Life is perfect for dear old dad, loaded with healthy items such as bottles of Brand’s Innershine Berry Essence, Kellogg’s Cereal Cornflakes, oatmeal cookies, tea, fruit crisps, and crackers. There are many other options available on Simply Hamper’s tonic hampers page, with halal or organic choices as well! 

Just order a couple of days in advance and you can have it delivered straight to your dad’s doorstep. 

Whether you see your dad every day or live thousands of miles apart, you can still make him smile by spending time with him or gifting him something that suits his interests. No matter how you choose to celebrate the day with your father, he will surely cherish every moment with you.
