A private chef will make dinner not only delicious but more intimate as well. You will not have the distractions of a rowdy restaurant interfering with your conversation. And you can decide what type of food you want to be served for your meal. If you are a chef yourself, or enjoying cooking you can prepare the meal together and make it extra special depending on what your father likes.

See if dad still has what it takes by racing to the top of a rock climbing wall. You can choose a hard or easy course, but either way make sure to have fun with it!

Shopping is not always enjoyable for guys, so sometimes we have to do it for them. Take your father shopping this year and pick out some things he really wants or really needs.
Cook out on the Grill
Everybody loves a good cookout. If your father is typically the grill master, let him sit back and relax while the rest of the family does the work and treats him to a great meal.
Visit a Race Car Track
This event can be pretty loud and rowdy so be prepared. Race car tracks are an amazing experience. Take dad here and watch the fast cars race or maybe even try to book an exclusive ride in an actual race car. Make sure you don’t forget your ear plugs!
Is your dad crafty? There are several different ways to be creative together. Start a project carving out wood or building furniture. Create something that will be fun but also useful for the both of you.
