7 Picture-Perfect Ways to Spend Father’s Day
By: Mars Salazar
Father’s Day is coming up in a few weeks. If you’ve already found the perfect present for dad, then great! If you haven’t gotten him a gift yet, you might want to consider spending quality time with him instead of giving him a material object. These ideas will give him the best gift of all: Memories that will last a lifetime.
1. Go camping with him
For outdoorsy dads, it can’t get any better than this. Pitch a tent in the middle of the woods, light a bonfire, and reminisce about days past while roasting hotdogs and marshmallows. Don’t forget to take lots of photos and send them to your Nixplay frame so your folks back home know you’re safe!
2. Play golf with him
Is your dad a golf fanatic? Spend an afternoon with him at his favorite course, or ask him to help you perfect your swing at the driving range. It’s a great way to bond with him while improving your game.
3. Watch a game with him
Most men enjoy watching sports, and your dad’s probably no exception. Tickets to an NBA game would be great–it doesn’t have to be the Finals, as long as he’s watching his favorite team. A major league game or a grand slam tennis match would also be amazing experiences for him. If there are no games on Father’s Day weekend, write dad a sweet letter and promise him you’ll definitely take him to watch his favorite sport soon!
4. Visit a new place with him
Remember how much you enjoyed your family vacations when you were a kid? Relive those memories by arranging a family vacation on Father’s Day weekend to a place you’ve all never been to before. It doesn’t have to be somewhere far, but it should instill a childlike sense of wonder in you. Use the Nixplay app to upload your photos on your Nixplay Frame while on the road, and you’ll instantly see your photos on your frame the moment you get home!
5. Go to a car show
If your dad loves cars, an exhibition of old-school hot rods or futuristic electric vehicles will be up his alley. While you’re there, ask him about his first car or his dream car, and laugh about the time he taught you how to drive.
6. Enjoy music with him
Check online for the concerts in your area on Father’s Day weekend and surprise your dad with tickets to watch his favorite band. A Broadway play is also a great option, if your father’s into that!
7. Try gardening with him
Not everyone has a green thumb, but a lot of dads sure do! Ask dad to lead your foray into the world of gardening: accompany him to a greenhouse, ask him for advice on the best indoor plants for your home, or maybe even plant a tree with him!
Whichever you end up doing, make sure to take lots of photos to capture your latest memories with your dad!
