Father's Day is this Sunday. And a whole summer is before us. Bored of the doing the same old thing? Look no further. We've got a list of great ways to make Father's Day - or any day - more special.

What are your Father’s Day plans? Share with us and you could win a $100 gift card to your choice of either iTunes, Home Depot or REI! 

The Urban Travel Dad: City Scavenger Hunt

Live in an area you don’t often explore? Visiting somewhere new for the holiday? Create a scavenger hunt with your family members by dividing into teams to complete fun tasks throughout the day. The list can include challenges like “shake hands with a statue” or “find three buildings that start with the letter W.” Make sure to take photos for proof! Before the hunt begins, place a gift for dad at the last stop. (Gift idea: framed map of his favorite city).

The Foodie Dad: Cooking Fest

Recreate Dad's favorite restaurant meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Have the kids surprise him with breakfast in bed, enjoy lunch at home and then pack up the final meal to take to the beach, park, or other favorite spot. Call the restaurants to get helpful hints and techniques for each dish - they might even give you recipes! (Gift idea: high-tech grilling tools).

The Outdoorsy Dad: Active Adventure

If you live in a rural area, take a family trip to the local lake to go fishing, or head to some local hiking trails for some exploring. At night, set up a campsite in the backyard to make s’mores - or melt marshmallows in your fireplace or on the stovetop! If you live in an urban area, take a weekend trip away or find a new park in your city to explore. (Gift idea: new hiking boots).

The Relaxed Dad: Movie Marathon

Does Dad just want to hang out on Father’s Day? Perfect- you can still make it special without leaving your home. Create a movie screening room with some pillows and a projector to enjoy dad’s all-time favorite movie (you know, the one he usually has to beg you to watch.)  Pop some popcorn and warm up some hot chocolate to top off this perfectly cozy celebration. (Gift idea: iTunes gift card for new movies and TV shows.)

    My Father's day was rough,as it was my first without my dad. I talked a lot about him with my son and we reminisced about our fun times with him. He was an amazing man!

    Our main goal was to have our first child tell him, "Da da da da da da da!" Our son didn't quite manage it, but we did use the day to help my husband relax from a stressful job. We just stayed in, watched movies, and played some games.

    We always make a special dinner which includes all his favorite foods.

    Every Father's day I buy 4 balloons, I write messages on them and send them to heaven. Two for my father, and two for the father.
