You know what makes the 3rd Sunday of June special? It's Father's day! This year, it falls on the 21st of June. Yeah, it comes amid a pandemic but who says we can't be festive? Here are some ideas to celebrate dad this father's day.
Bottoms up!
If pops is not a teetotaler, you can order some fine cognac, a bottle of wine, a case of beer or champagne for him and it'll be delivered straight to his doorstep if he lives in Nairobi. You can order here, here and here
Dine Out
Restaurants are slowly opening up for dine-in patrons. Treat dad to his fave meals at a nice restaurant around town. Bond over lunch or  dinner. We put together a list of restaurants that are COVID-19 safety-compliant here.
Dad Gift Box
Order a gift box for dad and have it delivered to him. You can get an array of gifts from here:
House of Leather
House of leather is famous for selling almost anything from trinkets and jewelry to home decor and leather goods…the whole shebang! Their prices are fair too. You can check out their website and browse for items your dad would love. Call them to arrange for delivery.
They have an array of gifts specifically for Father's Day. Items range from whiskey glasses to wallets, cologne and "happy" socks. Purpink has a same-day delivery policy which makes it a favorite with many.
Order an e-gift for pops. It could be an Uber eats gift card or an Amazon books voucher.  You can even top-up his debit card via online banking. Nothing says I love you like money. Lol!
Oppo Giveaway
Nominate a young dad for the Oppo Giveaway. To celebrate Fathers' Day, OPPO Kenya will be appreciating young fathers between the age of 20 and 28 years, as they share their experience in fatherhood. The Shine A Light on a Father campaign is a call for people to nominate young dads.   These nominations are being done on the social networking sites where users are being requested to use the hashtag #ShineUpYourAMoment with every nomination.
On Sunday, June 21st (Fathers' Day), the firm will appreciate the young fathers with gift hampers where one of them will receive the latest OPPO Kenya smartphone, the A92 and the OPPO Enco W31 wireless earphones.

No cash?

While most dads of course appreciate a store-bought gift, they mostly just crave recognition for everything they have done and continue to do. This appreciation can be shown in so many ways that don't cost any extra money such as cooking dad a meal, writing him a poem or a song, or making him a card. Here's some inspiration to get you started: If you are far away from your dad, there's nothing like a long telephone conversation to brighten his day and let him know that you care.
Happy Father's Day
