Last minute Father's Day ideas??

Postby poodlek » Thu, 14 Jun 2012 9:58 pm

We've been busy and out of town for the past while and it just hit me that I only have a couple days left before Father's day to pull something together for my dear husband. Any tips on places offering deals for brunch and/or some type of toddler-friendly daddy-son experience? I'm at a loss here, and feeling the pressure!

Coming from a Father of four, do not be pressured or make that day as something that you have got to do or give something for your hubby. Every day is a Father's or Mother's day.

I had a look at a few places - Brewerkz was booked up according to their online reservation thing (and the phone number wasn't working) but it did actually seem a bit more like children's day than father's day (I doubt the dads are allowed on the bouncy castle!).

Pauliner is probably booked but you could give it a try.

Other than that, the usual hotels will probably be doing something brunch-style and many restaurants will have things going on.

I've decided to cook something at home instead

I believe I scored the last morning reservation at Wild Honey. I hit up Spotlight today for some craft supplies to make a little sentimental gift. I'm not sure what else to do, perhaps we'll go skating although that wouldn't be new, it is a fun activity for the three of us. I'm the less imaginative half of this union-he always gives me good celebrations for birthdays, valentines, mother's day, etc. I do good Thanksgiving and Christmas, less so for these things. He took a week off work last week to take care of our son while I was attending a conference in HK, so although he doesn't *need* anything extra, I do want to show my appreciation. He's a good dad :-)
