We’re sure dad loved the socks you got him last year, but have you thought about what to get him for Father’s Day this year?

Soap on a rope? Nah!
Underpants? No, and boring!
More socks?
Why not do something different to show the man who raised you that you appreciate him?

Moms are easy to spoil –just a bit of chocolate and loads of hugs makes a mom’s day, but dads? How do we spoil a dad?

Here are our top four suggestions for showing your pa, daddy or old man how grateful you are to have him:

1) Trade Tools for Tech

Young or old, dads are setting aside the ‘handyman’ tools and are becoming more tech savvy. From reading books and news on tablets to capturing special moments using a GoPro or HD camera, dads are keeping up with the tech trends.

So instead of another set of spanners or a new ratchet set, why not spoil dad and make him feel like a kid again with a drone, a GoProor virtual reality headset?

2) Beers and Burgers

There’s nothing better than being treated to a great meal, don’t you agree?
This Father’s Day, organise a burger and beer evening and treat your daddy-dearest to food fit for a king.

We suggest either making a booking at one of these wonderful burger joints or doing your own gourmet build-a-burger at home:

Dukes Burgers, The Great Burger Company, RocoMamas or Hudson The Burger Joint.

Cape Town:
Touch of Madness, IYO Burgers, Hudson The Burger Joint, RocoMamas or Rick’s Café Américain.

Hudson The Burger Joint, RocoMamas, S43, Unity or Republik

3)  Make Memories Rather than Giving Gifts

Instead of spending money on expensive gifts or frivolous trinkets, why not enjoy an experience with your dad and make some new memories?

Is your dad the adventurous type? Does he enjoy a good thrill? Why not book a hot air balloon ride, try out a canopy tour or go skydiving?

Looking for something a little tamer? Try booking a game drive, or going to a rugby or cricket match. You could also challenge dad to a game of golf or putt-putt.

4) Let Dad Enjoy His Day

Still not sure how to spoil your dad this Father’s Day? Why not let your dad decide what he wants to do? After all, it is his day.

Chat to your dad and find out what he wants to do to celebrate Father’s day. You never know, he may just want to relax in front of the TV or have a simple family breakfast or a braai.

Whatever you decide to do, we hope you have a wonderful time with the man who raised you. Here’s to all the daddies, pops, pas and babas, may you have a fantastic Father’s Day!
