Creative Ways to Celebrate Father's Day

8 Father’s Day ideas that he will adore


Finding the right words that describe your relationship with your dad can be almost impossible. So this year, let him know how fabulous he is, and how much he is loved, by sharing a special Father's Day idea. If you want to plan something meaningful for your dad this year, or give him a gift he'll treasure, then it's time to start thinking about how you can make this Father's Day special. September 5th will be here before you know it! Which means it's time to start planning!


Celebrating with dad on this special day may mean getting a little creative. But, you can still find the perfect Father's Day gift, tell him how much he means to you, and even promise to laugh at his jokes all day.


We know that your time is the most important thing to any dad, and his favourite Fathers Day would be spent with you. If this isn’t possible, then we've rounded up some great Father’s Day ideas on how to celebrate Father’s Day in 2021.


You can still enjoy a special day with your dad, and right now, he needs your love more than ever!


Planning how to celebrate Father's Day in 2021 might be a little different, but quality time and some fun with Dad is an absolute must. How you celebrate and what Father’s Day ideas you come up with will largely depend on knowing what makes your dad happy and what he will enjoy the most. This could be treating him to an exciting adventure for later, taking care of his chores, or simply sharing some ‘relax’ time together.


Plan an interesting activity that you know he will enjoy, and one that can be shared with the extended family. Maybe his hobby is golf or gardening, or he has a yearning to go on a boat trip. Even if you can’t be together in person, there’s always an inventive way to make a Father’s Day idea happen. Get creative with tech and give him a day to treasure. Dads are loveable creatures so, of course, it could be something as simple as mowing the grass!


Here's how to pay it forward this year with extra love.


Wine or beer tasting event


For any dad who loves a tipple, the ultimate treat can be a home tasting event. Choose a selection of the best wines, maybe an Australian Shiraz Wine Pack or a Corona Beer Hamper to get him started. Then surprise him with a delivery of a gorgeous spread of cheeses, cold meats, fruit and his favourite nibbles. Plan an afternoon video call and have fun sampling wines, craft beers or ciders together.

Fun day family games


This year, if dad has a competitive side, then plan a board game marathon. The whole family can join in online with their favourites, including classics like Scrabble, charades and Monopoly. For father’s day ideas, send him a Campfire Call The Shots Dice Game or for fans of trivia and brain teasers, A World of Information hardback book to keep him on his toes.

All day party brunch feast


Everyone loves a good brunch, and it’s the perfect way to celebrate Father's Day. You might not be able to buy him a breakfast helicopter flight this year, but a garden table stacked full of all his favourite recipes will be heaven. Stun him with a socially distanced spread to be proud of from bacon to waffles, and everything in between. He'll more than enjoy the fresh air and sunshine with his family around him.

BBQ or sumptuous steak dinner


If your dad is more a sizzling barbie guy, then go for an afternoon soiree and fire up the grill. Gift him a creative branding iron and Maverick steak knife set, and he will be well away! Alternatively, if you can’t be together, then a great Father’s Day idea is to deliver a gorgeous steak dinner, desserts, and a bottle of his favourite wine. He'll definitely thank you and feel the love this Father’s Day!

Pampering home spa day


Our lovely dads always deserve some pampering; it’s not exclusively reserved for women! One good Father’s Day idea is to turn his home into a sensational and relaxing space for the afternoon, complete with his favourite scents, candles and soothing music. Pair it with a quality black resin shave kit or a luxurious Men’s Relax & Indulge With Red Wine Hamper, loaded with plush gifts. He’s going to be feeling relaxed and dapper for your Zoom get together!

Throw a unique gardening party


Nearly every dad is an avid gardener and loves hiding away in his greenhouse and pottering around outside. If this is the case, then why not throw a gardening party with a difference? Buy him a 12 month gardening mentorship gift, and better still, add some new colour and style to his garden. Gather the family, mow the lawn, add in some Urban Greens culinary flowers and watch him smile at this novel Father’s Day idea.

Learn a new subject together


Dads are never too old to learn something new, so it’s great fun to explore together. Both sign up for an amazing life experience to share, so he will remember the day for a lifetime. Otherwise, start some online classes teaching about his favourite pastimes from cooking to photography. You could even learn a new language together and spend quality time planning your next holiday adventure.

Virtual tour your bucket list


Treat him to a handy leatherette travel journal and a stylish smartphone projector and set off together on a virtual tour. His holidays may be on hold at the moment, but there’s no reason he shouldn’t explore his bucket list and the wonders of the world. There are online virtual trips across the globe from The Louvre in Paris to Walt Disney World, including all the fun of planning the real Father’s Day idea for the future.

Make this day a truly joyful occasion!


When you’re thinking about how to celebrate Father’s Day in 2021, think ‘outside of the box’. Typically, dads get showered with cute cards, comical presents and cuddles, with many families celebrating a day out together. While a large gathering in his favourite pub or restaurant may not be possible, you can still have some great fun and mark the occasion.
