Top 5 things to do with Dad

Five great things to do with Dad this Father's Day.

What’s your Dad’s favourite meal? Steak? Curry? Or Sunday roast with all the trimmings, followed by apple pie? Cooking something special is a gesture he’ll really appreciate.

If sci-fi or action movies are his thing, this is the perfect time of year for a cinema date with Dad. Watching a big summer blockbuster together is a great way for him to switch off and relax.

It could be a hike, a bike ride or a stroll on the beach with the dog. Doing something outdoors with your Dad will mean you’ll both get a blast of exercise and endorphins – plus quality time together.

Playlists are brilliant keepsakes and really easy to personalise. Choose songs that remind you of great times you’ve spent together, tracks by his favourite artists, or compile the No.1 hits from his birthday over the years.

Tickets for the match aren’t the only way to treat sports fan Dad. You could offer to do his weekend jobs, like mowing the lawn, so he can spend the whole day at the golf course, the cricket or watching his favourite sport on TV. The result? One happy Dad.
