Last Minute Father's Day Ideas

Oops - forgot something?

1. Breakfast in Bed. The classic. Whip up his favorite breakfast dish and have the kids help you present it to him in bed. Or while relaxing out on the patio. Breakfast Burritos are a huge hit in our house and easy to make. Scramble eggs, saute some onions and red peppers. Warm some tortillas and add your favorite salsa. Add a side of grated cheddar and sour cream. Viola!
2. Bake his favorite cookies. My hubby loves Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies so the kids and I make them for him on special occasions – his birthday, Christmas, and now Father’s Day. (Make sure the kids don’t eat too many kisses so you run out of them by the time the last batch is ready.) In fact, make a double batch, freeze half, and then bring them out again to surprise him at a later date.
3. An afternoon of golf. If your whole family plays golf, set up a tee time and spend the day outside. If not, call one of his best buddies and set up a play date for Dad.
4. Pampering. Every Dad likes quiet and relaxation, right? So grab him an appointment for a massage on Father’s Day. He’ll get an hour of peace and quiet and come home relaxed and feeling like jelly.
5. Cook together. Do you both like to cook? Why not take the day to make one of those all day recipes that you have been dying to try. Make homemade pasta. Make paella. Slow cook ribs or a BBQ brisket. You’ll have a relaxing day spending time together in the kitchen and then eating a fabulous, rarely cooked meal.
