The time to celebrate the father figures in our lives is quickly approaching, and we here at Feste are here to help you plan the perfect day for dad. Does he love to lounge or is outdoor and active more his speed? Does he love a good cocktail or a family friendly affair? Is he bougie or more down to earth?
We have gathered our favorite ways to gather and the products you’ll need to pull it off. Read on, sons and daughters.
Throw on your country club finest and hit the links with dad. Crack open some cold ones on the course with this chic bottle opener. Whether you tee it up or are simply along for the ride, he’s guaranteed to enjoy having some company on one of his favorite past times, while you enjoy an ice-cold beer. Win win.
Lounge poolside and fire up the barbeque for a fun filled Father’s Day. Let dad take over the grill – every dad’s assumed spot during any outdoor fete – and take charge of the drink station. Gift him this sleek gold ice bucket and ice tong pairing and put it to use straight away. Lemonade for the kids and spiked Arnold Palmers for the adults. Sit back, relax and celebrate dad.
Gather the family for a relaxing night at home, complete with game boards that are anything but lowkey. From our lucite cocktail tray backgammon (which doubles as a drink holder for a round of old fashions) to a more family friendly acrylic rummy tile game, let dad’s competitive side shine. But maybe let him win a round or two.
If your family is all grown up, let your Father’s Day activities age with you. Have a cocktail-off by each turning to a random page of this leather bound cocktail book and mixing up whatever you land on, with whatever you have on hand. Let dad taste test each concoction and decide the winner. Then whip up a batch of his favorite and enjoy the night.
Just a reminder, Father’s Day can be a joyous time of celebration and love, but also a time of hardship. I wrote about the lessons my father taught me in the past and it is worth a revisit as this day approaches.
