10. Bring Him to a Sport Event
Make sure that you know his favorite sport before you book or buy a ticket for a specific sporting event. You could make an arrangement for him that day, but don’t let him know that you are going somewhere. In fact, it is wise that you do some chitchat first while travelling and prior to that, you could ask him that you want to spend some time with him. It’s nice that you could have some common interest that could be shared with your father, especially for the boys who could actually catch up to what really interests him more. It doesn’t matter if it’s a live football game, soccer game, and even a basketball game.
9. Cool Him Down
Swimming on the beach or any resort is not just for kids, but it’s a special treat for the whole family as well. The only difference is that dad would relax himself, instead of preparing everything like the car and other stuff that men usually sets up when going to an out-of-town trip for a swim. You could also avail other amenities in that place where your father could enjoy the most like golf, table tennis, horseback riding, and others which are available in a beach resort that you would be booking to.
8. Grill Party
This would be an outdoor party within the vicinity of your home wherein you could prepare a long table, a grill, and varieties of fruits, vegetables, and meats. To complete the party, you have to prepare a pitcher of cold drinks. It could be his favorite drink, but remember to not serve him any alcoholic beverages during this event. Make it a healthy and fun party for him. Bring out the barbeque equipment that you have at home, and enjoy grilling in the afternoon where you could savor not just the food that you are cooking on the grill, but you’ll get to enjoy the company of your dad. It’s cheaper yet the memories that it could create is really hilarious.
7. His Favorite Picnic Meals

4. Daddy’s Day Out
Treat your daddy to a cruise where he could relax and visit other places.

On the day itself, let him sit comfortably in your living room and watch the documentary that you have created. At the end of the video, you could also share few messages that you could place at the last part. It would be touching for him to see and watch it.
