This June, use this Modded list for seven ideas for celebrating Father’s Day, whether you’re a father or planning a special day for your husband, father or grandfather.
1. Serve Breakfast in Bed
The best Father’s Day starts with the most important meal of the day. Make him an all-star-worthy breakfast of his favorite foods. You could use time-honored classics like pancakes, eggs, bacon and more. Or you can use this opportunity to find a new recipe like French-inspired buckwheat crepes or eggs Florentine with hollandaise sauce. Serve it in bed to start celebrating Father’s Day the right way.
2. Make a Special Dinner
Good food doesn’t have to stop at breakfast. Use Father’s Day to make him a special dinner at home or take him to his favorite restaurant. The holiday lands in the middle of June, so it’s a perfect time to fire up the grill and cook some tasty burgers or gigantic ribeye steaks. Use this occasion to get a special dinner like Japanese wagyu steaks, bison burgers or lamb chops. Find a treat he doesn’t get to enjoy often.
3. Go to a Beer Tasting
When planning activities, numerous options exist to take the father in your life. One popular choice is to take him to a brewery for a beer tasting. For example, Anheuser-Busch’s headquarters in St. Louis, Missouri, has a brewery experience for Budweiser lovers and lifelong Dale Earnhardt Jr. fans. Or you could have fun at home with new beers and play blind taste tests to see how much of a connoisseur he is.
4. Buy Concert Tickets
What are some of his favorite music groups now and when he was growing up? Has he ever seen them in concert? Some of his beloved bands may include Metallica, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Def Leppard, Iron Maiden and more. What do all those bands have in common? They’re still on tour. Even if he’s seen them before, get your father tickets to see his favorite bands. You never know when these legends hang it up for good.
5. Have a Movie Night
A movie day is a terrific way to celebrate Father’s Day if he wants a day to stay home with the family. Find dad-approved flicks to watch, like “Die Hard,” “Fight Club,” “Rocky” and other legendary films he enjoys. Or you could hit play on movies with fatherhood themes, such as “Field of Dreams,” “Father of the Bride,” “The Pursuit of Hayppyness” and “Parenthood.”

Get him a tee time at his favorite golf course nearby. Or go all out and book reservations at some of the world’s most famous golf courses. Some examples in the US include Augusta National, where they play the Masters, Pebble Beach or Seminole Golf Club.
7. Test Drive a Stock Car
