With that in mind, here are some unique and memorable ways to celebrate Father’s Day this year. 

1. Surprise him with his favourite meal

Chances are, the way to your dad’s heart is through his stomach. That being said, the scent of your dad's favourite dishes cooking in the kitchen on Father's Day could be a wonderful start to a day dedicated to him. Let your culinary creativity run free and prepare a feast with all his sweet and savoury delights. Perhaps he loves a classic roast, or maybe it's a traditional family recipe that offers warmth and comfort. Whether it's a sophisticated dish or a simple, homemade staple, it's the thought, effort, and love put into making it that counts. To top it all off, end the meal on a sweet note with some of your favourite Chummys desserts! Our bestselling postal brownies are the perfect finish to a delightful home-cooked meal, making your dad feel truly special on his special day.

2. Warm his heart with handmade gifts

Taking time to create a personalized, handmade gift for your dad can speak volumes about your love and appreciation for him. This Father's Day, show your creativity and thoughtfulness by crafting a special present that’s just as unique as he is. You could gather photos that span your lifetime – beautiful moments from your childhood, pictures of the two of you together at every stage, and photos of him embracing his role as a father. Carefully curate these images into a photo album, complete with handwritten captions that narrate his journey, providing a tangible snapshot of his time being your dad that he can cherish whenever he’d like to take a stroll down memory lane.

If your dad finds his sanctuary in nature, there's no better way to celebrate Father's Day than by organizing an outdoor adventure. From hiking through forests to a classic fishing trip at a serene lake, choose an activity that mirrors his love for the wilderness and outdoor exploration. As you step into this adventure, consider packing a picnic with some of your dad's favourite snacks. 

4. Plan a fun-filled game night

Unleash your dad’s competitiveness by planning a game night dedicated to all of his favourite games. Whether it's a nostalgic board game, a fast-paced card game, or an intense video game that caters to his love of action, let the games you choose reflect his tastes. As you laugh, strategize, and compete, make sure to keep your energy levels high with a constant supply of Chummys' indulgent sweets. Amid the excitement of the games and the sweet taste of our mixed box of delectable bronuts, you'll be creating a special memory filled with fun and laughter.

5. Tackle his home project to-do list

Is your dad a handyman? In many cases, there's always that one project that your dad's been wanting to tackle but hasn't quite found the time for. This Father's Day, lend him a hand and help turn his vision into a reality. Whether it's fixing a leaky faucet, mulching the yard, or organising his garage, your helpful hand will not only speed up the process but also make checking off his to-do list more enjoyable. As you work on the project together, you'll also have the chance to learn from each other and share experiences, creating a deeper bond. 

6. Shorten the distance with a virtual movie marathon

If the physical distance is keeping you from celebrating your dad in person, you can rely on technology to help bring him closer. Arrange a virtual movie marathon featuring his favourite films. Settle on a start time, synchronize your televisions, and begin your cinematic journey together, each in the comfort of your own home, while staying connected through a video chat. With a little careful planning, you can enjoy the shared experience, almost as if you were sitting in the same room. Don't forget to send him a box of Chummys treats as his movie snacks! Our cookie delivery is the perfect treat to enjoy while immersed in an action-packed thriller or a classic drama. Use this idea as a way to remind your dad that no amount of distance can weaken your bond.

If your father is a sports lover, arranging to watch a game together could be just the thing to make his day extra special. Whether it's securing tickets to a live match or setting up a comfortable viewing area at home to watch his favourite team in action, this could be a fun and exciting way to spend the afternoon. During half-time, treat him to a spread of his favourite Chummys treats. Each bite of our delicious desserts, from our chewy Rocky Road to our buttery postal blondies, coupled with the thrill of the game, will cement a memory for you both to cherish long after the final whistle blows. 

8. Fire up the grill 

If your father is a grill master with a passion for outdoor cooking, organising a barbecue party could be the perfect way to celebrate Father's Day. Plan the menu together, shop for the ingredients, and prepare the meal as a team. Then, celebrate the shared effort of creating the meal as you enjoy the sizzling sounds of the grill and the delicious aromas throughout your yard. Make the day extra special by introducing a touch of sweetness with a box of Chummys treats! Our brownie and cookie selection box will contribute to the festival of flavours, serving as the perfect dessert after a hearty meal. 

Remember, whether your gestures are big or small, the key to a successful Father’s Day is showing your dad how much he means to you.

Whatever you choose to give for your fathers day presents, make sure they’re heartfelt mementoes tailored to your dad’s interests. From planning an outdoor adventure to enjoying a sports match on television, by choosing an activity or gift that fits your dad’s preferences, you can create a meaningful memory and spend quality time together. Whether you live in different cities or just live down the road, there are so many ways for you to celebrate your dad and make him feel appreciated on his special day.
