Father’s Day Ideas

Father's Day Ideas


The title “Father” comes with a lifetime of responsibilities, hard work and sacrifices. A father is a protector, a provider, the voice of reason; a guy who wears many hats. It is hard to be a father and a parent, and sometimes the hardships can harden the man. Let us not forget we are all human and at the end of the day, even the most strict of fathers also love, feel love, and want love.

So, how are we celebrating our fathers this Father’s Day? Let us make this day about them. Let us hold them dear and close as we say, “I love you, Daddy!”

We have compiled a few activities and ideas to help us uplift and make our men feel special. 

Enjoy playing with kids for Father's Day

1. Celebrate With Kids

Anyone can be a father. But, it takes a special man to be a dad. Fathers play a role in every child’s life that cannot be filled by others. This role can have a large impact on a child and an involved father promotes inner growth, confidence and strength.

This Father’s Day, spending the Sunday with your child(ren) would definitely be rewarding. You can spend some time;

  1. Watching their favourite TV Show/ Movie with them
  2. Take a road trip
  3. Visit an amusement park
  4. Play a game of hide and seek
  5. Paint

While enjoying the time with the kids, enjoy some non-alcoholic beer. Coolberg comes in handy. It comes in Malt, Ginger, Strawberry, Peach, Mint and Cranberry. Other non-alcoholic beers you can enjoy are Heineken Zero and Bavaria.


Father's Day Dinner Ideas

2. Homemade Dinner

Celebrating our fathers, our father figures and the fathers to our kids goes a long way in appreciating their roles in our lives. One way of doing this is going out of our way to prepare their favourite meals or surprising them with something they have been wanting to try. 

The special romantic dinner can be accompanied by a bottle of champagne or wine to celebrate. You can go with Don Perignon (Champagne), Nederberg (White or Red Dry Wine) or Altar wine ( Red Sweet Wine)

Barbecue for Father's Day

3. Barbecue

We can also celebrate our fathers by preparing a barbecue with a handful of his friends and family.  Barbecue is best done outdoors later in the afternoon, either in the garden, backyard, patio, or porch. This shows thoughtfulness to them and they will feel appreciated. 

A barbecue goes well with beers or a smoky single-malt whisky like Laphroaig or Ardbeg.

Father's Day Cake

4. Bake Him  A Cake

You can never go wrong with a cake. Bake/buy him his favourite cake with a “Happy Father’s Day” message. If you are feeling a little bit naughty, you can bake him an alcoholic cake😉

Alcohol works best in baked goods and desserts that don’t require any heat. Alcohol usually evaporates when heated, which reduces its strength. 

The most ideal situation is adding some alcohol to your frosting, whipped cream, or glaze. The alcohol will be prominent, turning your innocent cake into a fun, boozy cake! 😋

Rum is the most preferred alcohol for baking.
