Dads are a pillar of strength in our lives. They are our heroes and a symbol of strength in the home. On #FathersDay we celebrate everything surrounding fatherhood and the influence our dads have on society as a whole. While there are a thousand ways we can choose to celebrate our dad, we’re really quite sure what would make him the happiest is to spend the day with those he loves.

If you’re planning to spend the day with dad on June 16, here are our top picks for making’s dad’s day a special one

Something’s Brewing

Get dad out of the house this #FathersDay with a trip to a local brewery. Let dad chill out with a few handcrafted beers or simply let him enjoy one of his favourite local brews. Who knows, dad might even find a new favourite beer and you’ll be there to witness it happen.

Go Fish

The serenity of the water, a line in the water and his family close-by is sure to be a hit with dads who love fishing. Plan a weekend fishing trip with dad or simply treat dad to a day out at the water’s edge. Just remember the sunscreen.

Get Racing

Why not book a dad’s day out at a local go-kart track? Dad is bound to love the thrill of going a few laps with those he loves most. Go-Karting trips are inexpensive and fun for the whole family.

Fancy Some Golf

If dad’s more of a four-ball type why no head on out to the nearest golf course for father’s day. Even better, a number of our local clubs are also hosting #FathersDay buffets, be sure to join in on the action and spare yourself the cooking hassle too.

Oh Braai

We cannot think of a better way to celebrate our dads than with a stunning braai. Give dad the day off and take over the master braai duties. This is also a great opportunity for you to learn from dad.

Massage Time

Gone are the days when massages were just for the moms. Let dad take a little time out and book a relaxing massage for him. Take your pamper session a step further and give dad a shaving gift that he will be able to use every day.

Some Steak

Why not take dad out to a stunning steak dinner at a posh restaurant. Alternatively, you could also opt to cook his favourite meat cut right at home. Check out our recipe here.

Movie Entertainment

Nothing beats a cozy winter movie and with the impending cold front set to hi Gauteng, we can think of nothing better than curling up with dad and watching a few of his favourite movies. Grab a bag of popcorn at Karaglen SuperSpar and don’t forget a selection of dad’s favourite treats too.

Picnic With Dad

Gong for a relaxing family picnic is an affordable way to spoil dad this #FathersDay. Fill the basket with homemade sandwiches and snacks and head out to the local park.
