Not literally of course.
I don’t know if you know this but Father’s day is right around the corner. It’s on 16th June. If you didn’t know that, you’re welcome and if you did well, here’s a gold star for you.
Now that we know when it is, let us start working on what we are doing this year, yeah?
HOST A FATHER’S DAY BRUNCH.
Brunches are often a mother’s day thing because, well, that is the norm. But why shouldn’t Dad be spoiled with a lazy, morning-into-afternoon feast on his special day as well? Invite all his friends, have all his favorite foods and his favorite drinks, or make it a small family affair. Some places that are really good for brunch in Nairobi include: About Thyme restaurant, Le Grenier à Pain, The Lord Erroll and Wasp and Sprout.
ATTEND A TASTING EVENT.
It could be food, it could be beer or even wine! As long as it is fancy and from the heart, your dad will love it. They say it’s the thought that counts. A good place for wine tasting in Kenya is at the Leleshwa farm. So, this father’s day do something different. Give your dad the VIP experience and lavish him with the finer things in life.
PLAY BOARD GAMES
2019 is a beautiful time. From the timeless monopoly to new age games such as cards against humanity, you have quite a selection of board games to pick from. A good way to play board games is to host a game night with friends and family. Get everyone in a competitive spirit and make this year the best father’s day for your dad. If you’re not up for hosting, you can go to places such as BAOBOX, they have a range of board games at an affordable price and amazing food and drinks.
GET HIM A QUIRKY CARD.
Cards are a great way to communicate your love especially with long distance relationships. Instead of walking to a mall and just buying the ordinary cards written Happy Father’s Day, why not customize the card? There are many platforms that you could get customized cards. On Instagram for instance on @Jojocrafts, you can get quirky cards at affordable prices.
The beauty with bowling is that you can play at any age and in any weather. A good place is the bowling rink at Village Market, Nairobi.
SERVE BREAKFAST IN BED
Breakfast in bed will never grow old. The best thing your dad can wake up to on Father’s Day is the smell of his favorite meal. The simplest gestures often mean the most — and Dad will definitely be touched when he sees the Father’s Day breakfast spread you’ve put together to celebrate him this year. Even if you’ve done it every year, I bet he would still love it. It is after all BREAKFAST IN BED, who wouldn’t love that?
DO ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.
Yeah I saved the best for last. Unlike our mums who live for every chance to dress up, most dads would rather just chill on the couch. Every day is a constant hassle right from work to being a family man. Sometimes all a dad wants is a day off. A day to just sit and do absolutely nothing. So this father’s day, clear your old man’s schedule, get him his favorite series and just chill with him on the couch. To our parents, spending quality time with their children is very important therefore, put your phone away. Be fully present in the moment and hang out with your old man.
