A creative take on the traditional Father’s Day customs

In true Bunch fashion, we’ve put a fun spin on some of the age-old Father’s Day traditions to help you inject some freshness into your family celebrations. Because the way you celebrate should be as unique as the man himself!

BUYING A TIE VS. MAKING A CROWN

Ties may be a practical gift choice for some Dads, but how many does he need, really? When it comes to wearable tokens of appreciation, it’s best to celebrate with something fun. Make Dad a king-for-a-day-crown to sport throughout the day. Whip up a simple, gold poster board crown like our Where the Wild Things Are inspired one, or fashion him one from wildflowers.

A COUPONS OF LOVE BOOKLET VS. A THANK YOU SCRAPBOOKLET

Make Dad a scrapbooklet showcasing all the reasons he rules! Instead of each page promising a DIY service, make each page a thank you for something. Does he makes the best French toast in all the land? Give the best shoulder rides? Have the best goatee? Tell him!

BREAKFAST IN BED VS. BREAKFAST PICNIC

Breakfast in bed can be a relaxing way to spend a Sunday morning, but if Dad likes to get active in the AM, make breakfast a collaborative event. Pack up some croissants, sliced fruit and juice boxes and head outside. You don’t have to go any further than your backyard to have an awesome alfresco feast. Consult our picnic planning guide for more ideas.

A FATHER’S DAY CAKE VS. A DIY FATHER’S DAY DESSERT PIZZA

Eating cake is never really a bad idea, but turning your dessert into a fun family experience is even better. Set up a candy bar on your kitchen table and decorate a dessert pizza together. You start with a brownie or cookie base, slather it with icing, then go nuts with candy toppings! For some other fun cake alternatives, check out our cupcake sliders and grilled cheese cakewich recipes.

DRINKING BEERS VS. DRINKING BEER FLOATS

If there was ever a day Dad deserved a cold one, that day is Father’s Day. Take this frosty treat to the next level by turning it into an ice cream beer float! Pair fruity lambics with a scoop of vanilla, and porters and stouts with a scoop of chocolate. For kids, sub beer for root beer and everyone will be happy as a clam.
