Today it’s your turn to make dad feel special and show him how proud you are to be his child. On Father’s Day today, break away from the clichéd done-to-death gifting and celebrate by spending some precious time with him. We’ll help you with some interesting and engaging ideas that will make your bond with daddy dear, deeper and stronger.

And we assure that these precious moments will stay with you all your life! Time to pamper If you thought that beauty or body treatments are only meant for your mum, you haven’t really thought enough. Book a luxurious spa treatment for your dad where he feels pampered and is at his comfortable best. Find out his preference of spa treatment and decide accordingly.

Cook his favourite meal Surprise your dad and cook a meal for him that includes his favourite dishes and desserts. In fact, you can surprise him early in the morning by make a sumptuous breakfast to kickstart his day. Else, dish out his favourite cuisine for a lavish lunch or a luxurious dinner. Involve your entire family to make it a happy family time. Gift him his hobby Whether its playing tennis, reading books, watching old movies, listening to music, collecting stamps or coins, refurbish your dad’s fondest hobbies that he had left ages back.

You can gift him a tennis racket, his favourite gadget (if he is a gadget freak), a special stamp or coin series or a special series of movies or old songs to see that million dollar smile on his face! Bond over his favourite sport At times, expensive gifts fail to create that magic compared to those good moments spent together. Give your dad a great time by indulging in his favourite indoor sports. Go out bowling or plan a game of chess. If he is a wild life enthusiast, you could also take him for a day out at a bird sanctuary.

The idea is to make him feel special. Cheering time If you are comfortable with the idea of sharing a few drinks with your dad, then this could be good fun. Help your dad bring back his old memories of bachelorhood and make him indulge in his favourite drinks, either at home or at some nice resto-bar.

Eating a meal together is just too clichéd so a few drinks together might be the ice-breaker for a good conversation. GIFTS THAT ARE LIKELY TO LEAVE DAD UNIMPRESSED, Deodorant and after-shaves: Your gift may smell pleasant but the choice of deodorants and after-shaves should be left to your dad.

Showpieces: Think if you seriously need to gift them? What is the utility if it is going to be just another side-table paper-weight? Gift him something useful instead. n Readymade cards: Don’t they all look the same? Adding ‘To’ and ‘from’ wouldn’t change much. n Ash Tray: It may look like a good gift option due to the many cool designs, but do you really want to encourage your dad to smoke? Tie and Cufflinks: They hardly have any surprise element. Chances are that dad already has enough of them.
