20 Father’s Day Ideas the Whole Family Will Love

Most likely, you’re looking for Father’s Day ideas right about now! At our house, we like to celebrate fun holidays like this with experiences, instead of things. I usually surprise my husband with a day filled with some of his favorite things. One year, we went golfing and I made him his favorite thing to eat. Last year, I surprised him with a little road trip where we hiked through a state park and ate lunch at a sausage factory. These kinds of celebrations are some of our favorite memories!
