Dad’s often get the short end of the ‘gift’ stick when it comes time to show our appreciation for them. And we’re all guilty of giving, at least once in our lives, the ugly tie or the useless tool that he’s never going to use. If you’re looking for something different this year, here are a few gift ideas to help you along with Father’s Day in Victoria.
Father’s Day in Victoria.
Beer or wine tasting.
Take Dad to a local beer or wine-tasting event, then bring home some of his favorite tastes to enjoy over the coming weeks and months. Check with local restaurants, breweries or wineries and pick the one you know he’ll like the most.
Rather than just giving Dad 18 holes at his favorite course, book him some time with the club pro. Whether it’s one lesson or a few, Dad will love getting some tips on how to improve his game that he can show off to his friends.
While this is usually something we think of for Mom, more and more men are finding the joy of spa days. A day of pampering, whether it’s an old-fashioned shave, a professional haircut, luxurious massage or a relaxing sauna can be enjoyed by the Dad’s in our lives. After all, they deserve some time to themselves as well!
Look up your local car clubs and find out when they have an event going on. There are typically Father’s Day in Victoria car shows. Even if it doesn’t land exactly on Father’s Day, Dads who love antique cars or hot rods are always going to enjoy taking in an event.
Dads are usually pretty busy keeping up with a ‘honey-do’ list. So help him out by hiring a landscaping company to come out for a day, a week or even a few weeks. The gardeners can clean up the yard, mow the lawn, pull the weeds and take care of anything else that might be needed.
Plan a get-away.
If Dad has a favorite place to go fishing or golfing or has a favorite beach to relax at, plan a day trip or weekend away. Whatever Dad’s favorite activity is, there’s always somewhere they love to go to do it. Book a getaway and Dad will carry those memories for a lifetime.
Some of these Father’s Day in Victoria ideas take a bit more planning than buying an ugly tie, but Dad will always remember your thoughtfulness and appreciate the time you took to plan whatever activity you decide on and that makes it all worthwhile.
