Father’s Day is just around the corner, but enjoying a day out isn’t really advisable right now. But still, that doesn’t mean you won’t be able to celebrate a day as special as Father’s Day this year. Our dads deserve love and care, even if we’re just staying in the comforts of your home. So if you want to plan something special for dad, here are simple and easy-to-do ideas you can prepare quickly right before the big day on Sunday.
Cook and eat
Don’t have a lot of time to prep? Keep the celebration simple by having a good meal at home. Maybe you can set up a DIY sushi night and the family can have a rare bonding moment in the kitchen trying to make dinner. Or if you’re all hungry, maybe you can grab some K-BBQ and veggies and set up your mini grill on the table for a samgyupsal night. It doesn’t have to be perfect, but it would definitely be a meal to remember.
If you think Dad’s been working too hard, give him some extra pampering — like a spa session. Before the pandemic, you could’ve just booked a session at a nearby spa. But if you’re staying at home this Father’s Day, you could organize your own DIY home spa. Grab a pampering kit with massage oils, scented candles, and all the works, and let Dad enjoy a pampered experience.
Is Dad a big film fanatic? Pull out his old DVDs and get comfy on the couch for a day-long marathon of his favorite movies (or you could just stream them, too, if they’re available on platforms). Recreate that immersive cinema experience with Samsung’s The Premiere, which delivers 4K picture resolution over larger-than-life 120-inch and 130-inch variants.
Of course, you should also prepare his favorite snacks and let him indulge even just for a day — but not too much! Make sure he doesn’t eat a lot of peanuts, chips, or whatever (his health’s more important!).
When was the last time you played a game with your dad? If it’s been too long, consider this an opportunity. Whip out your board games, or if you don’t have any, you could even introduce your dad to some video games!
Build something together
Another activity you can consider is building something together. And that something could be anything from a Lego Star Destroyer to a 1000-piece puzzle. Or you could buy a toy plane or an actual drone that you can piece together. And maybe you guys can even try actual woodworking. Working together like this would be an awesome bonding experience for Dad and the whole family.
Is Dad an outdoorsy kind of guy? If you’ve got a backyard, why not take him “camping”? Help Dad set up the tent. Bring out snacks and drinks from the kitchen. Roast marshmallows and make s’mores for him. Upgrade the experience to glamping with cozy and comfy pillows and blankets. And maybe even share a drink or two with Dad (only if you’re of legal age). Which brings us to our next point…
Conversations over alcohol
If the day has been jam-packed with activities, your Dad might just want to end the special day with a nightcap, so why not join him? Gift him a bottle of his favorite alcohol or a sampler set like Manila Wine’s The Whisky Treasure Box, which you and Dad can enjoy together while having conversations about anything and everything.
Learn (and film) a TikTok dance
Does your dad love dancing? Make the most of his talents by filming a TikTok video. You don’t even have to be great dancers to make a dance video on TikTok — a lot of them are really simple! Don’t worry about nailing the moves — what’s important is you’re having fun. We’re pretty sure that your Dad would very much appreciate just having a record of a Father’s Day to remember.
