Plan a family day out.

Depending on your dad's interests, there are plenty of things you could do with him. You could plan a trip to a local museum, zoo, or amusement park. If he enjoys sports, consider buying tickets to a game of football or rugby, or you could go for a round of golf. Another great pass time is if you go fishing together. Sitting together, relaxing and chatting for a few hours is a fantastic way of bonding. If he enjoys the outdoors, you could also consider going on a hike or camping trip.

Cook a special meal.

Think about your dad's favourite foods and plan a meal around them. If he enjoys breakfast more than any other meal, you could consider making a big breakfast with pancakes, bacon, eggs, and coffee. If he prefers dinner, consider grilling his favourite steak or making a special pasta dish. If you’re not much of a cook, you could take him out for a meal at his favourite restaurant. If you download the tastecard app, you’ll be able to find restaurant offers in your local area.

Game night.

Choose games that your dad enjoys. If you be card games, board games, or even video games. A night playing multiplayer with each other is fun for you both unless you keep beating him at every game! Make sure to try and include games that the whole family can join in with and consider offering small prizes for the winners (and your dad!).

Family at the cinema eating snacks

Movie marathon.

Choose your dad's favourite movies and plan a movie marathon around them. You could also add in some new releases or films he hasn't seen yet. Make sure you have plenty of snacks and drinks on hand to keep you powering through! Head to your local cinema and use your tastecard subscription to get cinema ticket deals. Plan your day out to the minute so you can watch back-to-back films all day!

Go on a road trip.

Consider taking a road trip with your dad to a destination he’s always wanted to visit. This could be a nearby town or city, or even a different country. Try and match both of your schedules and plan out the route ahead of time. If you have enough money, you could even look at hiring out his dream car for the trip - how good would that be?!

Laidback relaxation day.

Our final tip for the best Father’s Day plans is a laidback day relaxing. Think about booking a spa treatment or a massage to allow your dad to truly relax. Many spa packages include access to a sauna and a swimming pool so this could be the relaxing day your dad needs.
