  • Sometimes just spending quality family time together can be the best gift of all, especially for a family that’s always headed off in different directions. Plan an afternoon watching Dad’s favorite action thrillers. You can eat popcorn, order a pizza and let Dad control the remote all day long.
  • What’s your Dad’s passion? Does he love to root for the home team, or would he enjoy spending a day at an outdoor music festival? Maybe he loves drooling over antique cars or heading out on the lake. Whatever it is, arrange a day filled with his favorite activities and accompany him with a smile.

  • Hickory Farms carries a variety of gift baskets any dad would appreciate, like our Timeless Traditions gift basket with a bottle of Murphy-Goode Sauvignon Blanc, pears, apple, beef summer sausage and two different cheeses. Best of all, there’s enough to share with the rest of the family.

  • Dad may even get a little sentimental if you make him a framed, personalized piece of art filled with photographs and other significant memorabilia. This might include a coaster imprinted with the name of his favorite beer, a ticket stub from a concert featuring his favorite band, the logo from his all-time favorite sports team . . . you know Dad best, so have fun choosing.

  • Re-purpose Dad’s favorite threadbare T-shirt from college or Led Zepplin’s last tour into a keepsake pillow that’s super easy to make even if your sewing skills are pretty basic.

Whatever you decide to do to honor your father on his special day, he’ll feel the love and gratitude you have for him in your heart.

Fun Ways to Spend Father’s Day

With every Father’s Day that passes, we have to get more and more creative to come up with something that will really put a smile on his face. And there’s nothing more thoughtful than planning to spend the day having fun together. As Ask Men magazine put it, “… a great gift, a present and a card cannot substitute for quality time with dad.”

 

Take a stroll down memory lane…

Find unique ways to learn more about your dad’s life before you were around. Find out what his favorite old movie or show is and plan to watch it together.

 

Cook up new memories…

Put on your chef hats or grab your grill tongs and plan to cook up a meal or grill out together.

 

Make (or enjoy) music…

If you play instruments, suggest a jam session. Or, see if you can buy tickets to a live performance of his favorite band or type of music.

 

Take him out to the ball game…

If your dad is a sports fan, he won’t say no to an afternoon at the stadium or arena watching his favorite sports team. If it’s off season or his favorite team is playing an away game, plan to watch the game at home. Or, get out and play! Hit the batting cages or the bowling alley together, or plan to play a round of (mini) golf.

 

Help him cross something off of his bucket list…

Take dad somewhere he has never been to but always wanted to go, like New Orleans or the Grand Canyon. Another thoughtful idea is to plan an activity he’s always wanted to try but hasn’t had the opportunity to yet. Maybe he’s always wanted to learn photography or take a sailing or flying lesson. Doing something where you can learn together will be rewarding for both of you!

No matter what you plan to do with your dad on Father’s Day, you definitely have to make sure he’s well fed! Hickory Farms gourmet sausage and cheese can help keep Dad happy (and full) all day long. And for a great Father’s day gift, you can give or send him the Precision Tool Bag, which comes with our Signature Beef Summer Sausage, two cheddar blends, and gourmet crackers.
