Father’s Day is on Sunday, June 20th, 2021. It’s a wonderful holiday designed to let you let Dad know just how much you care. Father’s Day 2021 may present some unique and unusual challenges when it comes to organizing a celebration. Hard-to-shop-for dads have always been an obstacle, but now many of us also face social distancing measures and gathering restrictions in our communities. But where there’s a will, there’s a way. Here are the top 5 ways to celebrate Father’s Day at home, from a distance or outdoors. We hope these Father’s Day celebration ideas give you a leg up.
As the old saying goes, the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. With restaurant dining rooms still largely shuttered, and patios offering limited seating, the best way to Dad’s heart may be to spend some quality time preparing a Father’s Day meal together. You can encourage Dad choose his favourite meal, or encourage him to select one of these great Father’s Day recipes and make it with or for him. If Dad lives in a separate household, and you can’t get together on the day, you can still have a great time making dinner together over Zoom. To make things easy for him, you may want to have the ingredients delivered from a local grocery store.
Meal kit delivery
Speaking of having fresh ingredients delivered, signing Dad up for a meal delivery kit service may be a great gift idea this year. It takes a task off of Dad’s plate, while ensuring that he has fresh, great tasting meals to put on his plate. The idea is simple – sign up for the service, select any dietary preferences, and the ingredients and instructions to easily cook a delicious meal are sent right to Dad’s door. No waste, no measuring, no problem!
Have a picnic
This one may be tougher to do over Zoom. If you and Dad can get together on Father’s Day, get some picnic food inspiration here, whip up your meal of choice, pack it up and enjoy a picnic at a local park. It could be a great way to spend a sunny Sunday. If the weather isn’t cooperating, or parks are not open, you don’t need to take a rain check – just move the coffee table out of the way, lay down a picnic blanket, and have an indoor picnic at home. It’s a simple idea, but it makes the day feel special without making a big fuss – which is what most dads may be looking for.
Watch a movie
There’s nothing better than watching a Sunday night movie with the family. Movie theatres are still a no-go, but making some popcorn and curling up in the living room is an easy option. These top movie picks for Father’s Day will help you plan what to watch. If you can’t be in the same home, you can use Teleparty to synchronize video playback and add group chat to your stream as you watch together from wherever.
