Fun Ideas for Father’s Day Sure to Bring a Little Joy.

Are you looking for the best fun ideas for how you will celebrate Father’s Day this year?

Then you’re in the right place!

Finding something fun to entertain your Dad is not always the easiest job in the world. Fathers can be mysterious, sometimes picky in how they spend their leisure time. With Father’s Day there also comes the added burden of “special occasion pressure”.

It’s the one day dedicated to the Dad’s of the world so you want to get it right.

With this in mind we’ve been racking our brains for the best fun ideas for Father’s Day celebrations. To be honest, we weren’t doing that well, until we turned to our favourite indie designers and makers, who, it turns out were hiding a wealth of inspiration!

So without further ado let’s look at some fresh ideas for Father’s Day to make this year extra special.

1. Host a Barbecue

Inspired by our friends over at Caroline Gardner, this Father’s Day card has got it spot on! A  few tasty barbecue treats and a couple of beers are a great way to ensure a happy, relaxed and joyful Father’s Day and as one of the few June-based celebrations there’s a good chance the weather might just make this a real possibility. So why not send your Father’s Day card with an invite to a summer BBQ in Dad’s honour!


2. Host a Wine Tasting

The super stylish Five Dollar Shake have got us in the mood for a little vino with this cool, classy ‘Vintage Father’s Day card’. So why not follow suit with your very own wine tasting. Great for a Father’s Day afternoon or evening celebration, a wine tasting complete with nibbles is another relaxing way to spend the day, and it’s sure to be a hit with all the wine connoisseur Dads.


3. Get Out & About

This vintage-style ‘Cricket’ Art print from Rocket68 Cards has got us thinking about all the active Dads. The sportsmen and the game fans. For those Dads you need to add a little excitement and get out and about on Father’s Day. It could be a game of cricket or football at the local park, a long distance run or even a gentle stroll to the local pub. Whatever you choose, the day should be all about getting out & about in the fresh air.


4. The Guilt-Free Shopping Day

This chic Megan Claire Father’s Day card, complete with simple tie design has got us thinking about all the Dads with style. For the fashion-forward Fathers out there could anything be better than an invitation to a Dad-centric shopping spree. Spend Father’s Day with a little guilt-free shopping round your town or local shopping centre; you could even let him choose his own Father’s Day gift.


5. The Gift of a Quiet Sunday

Which Glasses Are Which? Reading Glasses Case

This stylish ‘Reading Glasses Case’ from Which Glasses Are Which? has inspired us to think about all the Dad’s who enjoy the quiet life. If a shopping trip or party is just a little over the top for your cool, calm and collected Dad why not treat him to a quiet Sunday, with a complete ban on DIY, chores or being asked any favours whatsoever from the kids. With a free pass to read a good book, watch a film or do the crossword Dad might just have the perfect day he deserves.


6. The Great Curry Cook Off

Our final inspiration came from this ‘Slate Tray with decorative Chilli handles’ from indie boutique Sorella. This got us thinking about cooking, fabulous food and a special Father’s Day meal in Dad’s honour. Add a little fun and competition to the mix by making it a curry cook-off, with the whole family coming together to compete and you’ll have a special evening sorted in no time at all.

Hopefully like us you’ll have found her some fun ideas for Father’s Day. Take inspiration from the world around you and you’ll soon have a winning idea how to celebrate the day.
