8 Creative Ways to Surprise Your Cool Dad on Father’s Day

Father’s Day is just around the corner so it’s the perfect time to start thinking about the ways to make it special. This doesn’t mean that you should neglect the other 364 days of the year, but it would be nice to put in some extra effort and come up with something interesting to surprise your Dad on his day. It doesn’t have to be about getting him an expensive Rolex or a weekend getaway in a fancy Resort in Bali. A small token of appreciation made with love is something that your parents will cherish the most. Here are some creative ways to surprise your Dad on Father’s Day and make it one he’ll never forget.

1. Get him the tickets he’s been buzzing about.

There has to be that one event your Dad has been talking about for months or even years. Maybe it’s a football game or a premiere of his favourite superhero film. Maybe he dreams of going to a Formula 1 race or a concert of his favourite bend. Whatever it is, do some research and find the tickets for that event. It will make it that more special. 

2. Take him on a surprise picnic.

Spending day in nature with their family is something many people enjoy deeply. The fast pace of life and everyday obligations can leave your father feeling drained at the end of the day. Prep and pack his favourite food, fresh fruit, and a bottle of wine and take a family trip to a nearby picnic spot. This could also be a good opportunity to gift him any food or culinary-related presents, such as one of these hot sauce gift sets if spice is his thing. Make it a surprise. You can enjoy many outdoor activities and make tons of fun pictures that will remind you of this beautiful day.

3. Make a personalised gift.

When it comes to special occasions, nothing beats personalised gifts. It shows not only your love and devotion but also that extra effort you put into making it unique just like every father is. There’s a wide range of wonderful gifts for Father’s Day available, you just need to be creative and find the right one to personalise. The Internet is crawling with DIY ideas and tutorials so it may give you that inspirational nudge you need. Even a small handmade or personalised gift will put a smile on your Dad’s face. 

4. Make it a no-chores day.

Housework is nobody’s favourite activity, and especially not men’s. However, in most homes, chores are divided equally so Dads usually have a part to play. Organising a day without any chores for them is probably one of the best gifts you can come up with for Father’s Day. Even without any extra pampering, this will certainly make every Dad happy. If you want to go the extra mile, you can prepare his favourite dish and surprise him with a lovely meal on this special day.

5. Make his hobby a priority. 

A large number of working fathers don’t have much free time. That means that they get a chance to engage in their favourite hobbies. Why not dedicate Father’s Day to his hobby in a way that the whole family can participate. Aside from an opportunity to do what he loves, he’ll be proud to teach his family all about it and to make it fun for you guys, too. 

6. Get him a pair of high-quality sunglasses.

If you’re looking for a gift that’s both practical and stylish, go for a pair of sunglasses. Make sure they are high-quality since it’s important for them to have UV protection. Opt for a model that will best suit your Dad’s face shape and his style. There’s a great variety of models to choose from, so if you’re in a doubt, you can always your Mom to help you with the choice.

7. Let him have the remote just for himself. 

If you’re like any other family out there, fighting over a remote is probably a part of your daily routine. If you’re head-scratching over how to make your Father’s Day special, why not give him the absolute control over the remote. Having the freedom to choose what will be on TV the whole day will make him happy beyond words. Lying on the couch, enjoying his favourite TV programme is tough to beat, especially if the kids provide him with his favourite snacks. 

8. Treat your Dad with a Spa Day.

It’s not only mothers who deserve a little pampering. Fathers work hard and it would be nice to give them an opportunity to relax. If you don’t want to splurge, you can make a spa at your home as well. Draw him a bath, light some candles pour a glass of wine and surprise him when he comes from work.  


Your Dad deserves love and appreciation every day. However, it’s always nice to make Father’s Day special by surprising your father with a lovely gift. These creative ways are here to help you along the way and to make this day one to remember.
