To All The Dads Out There, The True MVPS

Father’s Day is right around the corner and it’s time to start thinking about how to show your old man just how much he means to you. It’s common to drift apart from your dad as you get older. Maybe you don’t share similar interests, maybe your parents got divorced, or maybe you moved away for school. With Father’s Day coming up it’s time to make some plans with the man who has been there for you since day 1.  Buying another gift or spending a lot of money is  unnecessary, most fathers just want the reassurance that their children still care. Quality time goes a long way, so 329 came up with a list of activities you and your dad can do for under $50.
  1. Attend a baseball game.
Baseball season is full steam ahead, and what better way to spend Father’s Day than  by watching America’s favorite past time. Grab a beer and a hotdog, sit back and relax, and watch the game with the man who taught you how to play catch!
    2. Swing the old clubs at the driving range.
Golfing becomes more and more popular with our fathers as they get older but sometimes a full round of golf can be expensive. Head up to your local driving range and hit some golf balls… a bucket of golf balls usually cost $10 or less! Share a laugh and learn how to use that old set of clubs that have  been sitting in your garage for the last 20 years.
  3. Race go-karts.
Heading to your local go-cart track/put-put course was something many of us did as kids. This is a super fun activity to do with your dad because now you have real world driving experience! Reminisce on your childhood birthday parties with the man who used to foot the bill ;).
4. See a comedy show.
   What better way to listen to some corny dad jokes than with your dad himself! Comedy clubs are usually very inexpensive if not free. Get a cocktail and giggle with your old man at an adult comedy show!
5. Set out some casts on the water.
    Fishing season is here and this the perfect way to spend your Father’s Day. Head out to your local pond, lake, or beach to set out some casts. This is completely free and can be a great way to bond with your dad as you anxiously wait for a bite!
Spending quality time with your dad is the best Father’s Day present you can give him. He doesn’t need another tie, coffee mug, or candy bar.
We live in such a hectic age. Work, school, social lives, it seems impossible to set aside anytime these days. Spend Father’s Day weekend getting back to basics with the man who was there for you your whole life. It doesn’t have to be expensive or elaborate, just something simple and meaningful. Happy Father’s Day to all the great dads out there from 329 Dorm Decor!
