So, Father’s Day is here again. For those of you too confused or busy to have something special planned, and for even for those who just plain forgot, here’s a list of interesting things to do with your daddy dearest today.
At Palladium, High Street Phoenix, children can write out personalised messages to their daddies on gift cards provided by CRY (Child Rights and You) and then pin them up on the ‘Daddy Wall’ inside the mall. The best messages will be awarded gift vouchers for the fathers themselves.
Monginis patisserie outlets across the city are offering a select range on cakes, available exclusively for the occasion today. Each cake is designed to suit the universal theme of fatherhood, and tastes the way Monginis believes will appeal to fathers all over.
A workshop at Crossword bookstores around the city today lets children with travelling fathers create a one-of-a-kind gift for them, to remind them of their children no matter where their travels may take them: luggage tags. Timings vary depending on the Crossword outlet.
Walk into any Omved store in the city today and buy your father anything he likes, from a range of lifestyle products. Then get a discount on your bill that’s as much as your father’s age.
Chefs will step aside at O22’s Father’s Day Lunch at Trident, BKC, allowing you, instead, to cook your father his favourite dishes. Younger children will be guided in creating pizza art and decorating cupcakes for their dads to show their love.
HyperCITY outlets have planned a variety of Father’s Day activities at their outlets in the city. These include card-making lessons for children as well as a cookery workshop focusing on Father’s Day recipes. Customers stand a chance to participate in a lucky draw and win movie tickets for their parents. Additionally, the first 100 customers of the day will win be provided with a Healthy Start Breakfast gift hamper.
Check out the My Dad Rocks segment at PlanetRadiocity.com, which will feature a playlist of songs dedicated to fathers. A special, interactive feature will follow, with celebrities such as Rishi Kapoor and Amitabh Bachchan who will share stories about their children.
