While Mother's Day is celebrated several times yearly, great dads don’t get celebrated enough. Let's do it differently this year.
This is why we're here to help you make this Father's Day memorable; with this carefully curated gift selection; a list of memorable experiences, to help you show your dad how much you appreciate him.
From practical gadgets, luxury hotel stays, and favorite personal items, we're sure these gift ideas will make your dad feel truly special.
1. Take him on a movie date.
Who said movie dates were only #couplegoals? Definitely not us! Going to the Cinema provides an excellent opportunity to spend time with our loved ones and build core memories.
So what better way to celebrate your dad this Father's Day than by doing something as unexpected as taking him on a movie date?
Find a movie he likes: Action, Thriller, Comedy, Adventure, Family, or Horror Movies; no matter his favorite genre, the good people at Filmhouse Cinema have something for him.
So please get your tickets and grab some popcorn as you watch together.
2. Book him a hotel stay.
One thing about dads? They work hard! Another truth about them? They hardly take breaks or go on vacation.
Here’s the truth, if you don't help your dad prioritize taking some time off, he most likely won’t do it himself.
So take advantage of this Father's Day and book your dad a weekend stay at Four Points by Sheraton in Oniru, Victoria Island.
The best part? You can even add a lunch or dinner date so you guys get to spend some quality time together. Our dads won't be here forever, so let's take advantage of our time with them now.
3. Take him on a shopping spree.
Breaking news! Moms aren't the only ones who love to go shopping. Dads do too.
Give him the experience of buying things without having to use his card. Let him choose his favorite wine, electronics, perfumes, provisions, and foodstuff. Let him enjoy the fruit of his labor. He's worked hard for it.
4. Get him a new phone
Are you tired of the same phone your dad has been using since you were 15? Father's Day is the perfect time (and excuse) to change it.
We know our dads. They’ll rather use the same phone till it goes off, so take advantage of this Father's Day to get him an upgrade!
Do this, and every time he picks up his phone to text or check the family platform (oops), he'll remember your generosity and pray for you.
5. Get him a shopping voucher.
Here's the thing with our parents. No matter how little your gift is, their gratitude never ends. When you give your dad something, you can bet he'll tell your mom also to thank you.
And when you think they've gotten over the gift, they'll call you randomly two weeks later to say thank you again! They'll keep thanking you till Kingdom comes.
So if your budget is lean this Father's Day, but you still want to show appreciation for a job well done, remember it’s the thought that counts.
You can get Dad a shopping voucher from Madina Lifestyle Supermarket for as low as five thousand naira. Let him use it for anything he wants: his favorite beer, meal, wine, or cologne.
There you have it! If you feel discouraged because you’re shopping with a lean budget, remember, for many dads, the gift itself isn't what counts, but the thought that went into the giving.
You know your dad best and what he'll appreciate. So look through any of these five options we've shared today and give your dad a memorable experience.
Happy Father's Day!
