Simple ways to celebrate Father’s Day amid the pandemic
Celebrating Father’s Day is a bit tricky this year as the world continues to battle the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic.
With thousands out of jobs, this may not be the best time to splurge on a present for Father’s Day, which is fast approaching.
This year’s day for the man of the house is set on June 21, 2020.
So with the outbreak still on, how do we celebrate Father’s Day? Well, one thing is for sure, gifts this year should be personal and priceless, in every sense of the word.
Here are some ways you can treat your dad in his special day.
Show how much you appreciate your dad.
Tell your father how much he means to you in a simple handwritten letter.
Nothing fancy, just use a simple plane paper and write down specific moments where he made a lasting impact on you.
Thanking him for his financial support and who he is as a person places more value on his ability to provide and write down instances when both of you truly connected.
Get to know your father more
If you’re kinda in your 20s, you might probably know more a lot about your father.
However, it is always nice to ask your father all sorts of questions about his life like storytelling sessions.
While millennial fathers are more vulnerable and open, some older fathers might have kept things bottled up inside to fulfill the outdated masculine stereotype.
Whether your father assumed the age-old role, storytellings may encourage him to open up and look back on meaningful moments in life. You will never know, you might pick up a thing or two.
Channel your creative juices.
Are you a painter? Create an artwork that will resonate with your father, may it be a portrait or a sketch of his favorite things that recall special moments you shared.
If you love writing, create a poem. Filmmakers can create short videos, singers can write down songs – you get the picture.
A gift made personally for him using the skills that we are good at would be extremely special and memorable.
Keep it simple.
Let us admit it, these are stressful times. So don’t ever feel obligated to give the gift of the century.
If you are away from your family, spend quality time even it is over a Zoom call or video chat.
Bond with him over his favorite hobby, exercise, or cook. Just make sure all of these are done indoors. /bmjo
