Whether it be dad, a big brother, best friend or grandpa, Father’s Day is fast approaching, and let’s be real – sometimes the dads in our lives are SO hard to shop for. Even though we should show our appreciation at every chance we get, dads get this one special day in the year that is dedicated to celebrating the positive impact they have on our lives. Yes, the man who taught you the real definition of responsibility, and guided you to become a respectable person (the same man who taught you every bad joke there is, and still insists on critiquing your driving skills every time he’s in the car). This year, Father’s Day falls on Sunday the 19th of June, and after 2 years of being offered the Father’s Day free pass (thank you pandemic), you’re going to want to make this year’s event one for the books.
At The Indytute, we think dads are pretty cool. They work almost as hard as mums, after all, so dads really do deserve a treat on Father’s Day. Sadly, traditional Father’s Day gifts just don’t quite cut the mustard. Socks, cufflinks, ties… it’s really hard to get excited about receiving the same generic, mass-produced type of gift every year. It’s no wonder that these immediately get stuffed into a drawer as soon as they have been received, to be forgotten about for another year until a new Father’s Day arises. Would he even notice if you simply regifted them?! Clearly it is time to break out of the boring, traditional mould and make Father’s Day extra special this year!
Sure, you could always get him a “World’s Best Daddy” personalised gift with a photo of your smiling face on it, but we hate to break it to you… that isn’t what he wants. He might coo over it, tell you it’s beautiful, and feel obliged to display it, but we know he’d much rather have a fun gift that he can actually enjoy. It’s just as well then that you’ve come to the right place.
Whatever it is that your dad is into, we've got you covered.

To make life less complicated, we’ve rounded up the best Father’s Day activities, including the ultimate ~out of the box~ gift ideas to really wow your pops! All of these activities are sure to spark memories that you’ll cherish, and with any luck, they may even become the start of a new Father’s Day tradition that you can enjoy together for years to come.
