10 Ways To Treat Dad This Father’s Day

Father’s Day is fast approaching and it looks like the majority of people won’t be able to spend it with Dad this year so we’ve put together 10 ways you and Dad can celebrate from a distance!

1. Bake a long at home 👨‍🍳

This one is really fun (and can get a little competitive 😉). All you need to do is find a baking recipe you and Dad like the sound of, send him and yourself the ingredients needed and set up a call where you can bake the recipe together! Plus you won’t have to share the sweet treats at the end 🙊 We suggest this fool-proof recipe…

Brownie In A Mug

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Spoon the flour, sugar, cacao powder, salt and cinnamon into a microwavable mug. Combine by mixing with a fork. Add the water, butter and vanilla and stir until combined.

  • Place in the microwave for 1 minute and 40 seconds or until cooked through. You may need to adjust the time depending on how powerful your microwave is.

  • Serve with ice cream!

2. Cook a long at home 👨‍🍳

Same rules apply but this time you’ll be cooking dinner together! 🍳 We think Dads will appreciate something beer based so give this one a go…

Beer Mac n Cheese

Ingredients

  • 50g Butter
  • 500ml Milk
  • 250ml Pale Ale
  • 1.5 teaspoons Garlic Powder
  • 220g Pasta
  • 100g Cheddar Cheese grated
  • 200g Mozzarella Cheese grated

Instructions

  • Melt the butter in a frying pan, pour in the milk and beer and bring to a gentle simmer. Sprinkle in the garlic powder.

  • Tip in the pasta and cook for 20 minutes (stir occasionally). Add the cheddar cheese and 100g of mozzarella and stir. Sprinkle the rest of the mozzarella on top and place in the oven (with the grill on high) until the top begins to brown.

3. Selfcare 🛀

Dads need selfcare too! Send Dad the ingredients he needs to make his own moisturising beard oil a long with this easy recipe…

Homemade Beard Oil

Instructions

  • Scoop out the coconut oil, add to a pan over a low heat and melt. Carefully add 1 - 2 drops of essential oil and mix. Carefully poor into a clean, airtight container and leave to set.

4. Craft 🧵

If you’re lucky enough to spend Father’s Day with Dad then why not get crafting together to pass the time?! View our craft ingredients here and get creative… The alternative is to send Dad a selection of craft ingredients and give him the task of creating something. When you are able to see each other next, exchange your DIY gifts! (We suggest a scented candle 🕯️)


5. Tea Hamper

Let Dad put his feet up and relax with a range of refreshingly natural loose leaf teas! A fun task you can complete together is creating your own tea blend… From Chamomile, Rosehip and Peppermint tea to Rooibos, Nettle and Green tea, there’s something for every occasion (and we’ll deliver them to his door 🚚) View teas here.


6. E-Gift Card 🎁

An e-gift card allows Dad to pick his own Father’s Day gift! What’s more, the gift card will be sent straight to his phone on Father’s Day! View our gift cards here.


7. Brewing Beer 🍺

It’ll be a very hoppy Father’s Day if you give Dad the gift of brewing his own beer… Who doesn’t want the satisfaction of brewing their own beer at home?! It’s the gift that keeps on giving (and maybe when this all blows over you can try his beautiful batch!) View brewing ingredients here.


8. Write A Bucket List 🌈

Plan 10 things you and Dad want to do together when you’re able to see each other. For example a trip to the cinema, go for a walk or even taking a cooking class together… Write your mutual bucket list on to 10 pieces of paper, fold them up and pop them in a jar. When you’re able to see each other again, pick an activity from the jar and get planning your fun day together! Something to look forward to once this is all over 😊


9. Pancake Competition 🥞

Okay, this one is probably our favourite because it involves baking, eating pancakes and more importantly beating Dad in a pancake flipping competition! All you have to do is make a batch of pancakes (YUM!) then record yourself attempting as many pancake flips as possible. Send to Dad and see if he can beat you!

Traditional Pancake Recipe

Ingredients

  • 100g Plain Flour
  • 2 Eggs
  • 300ml Semi-Skimmed Milk
  • 1 tablespoon Sunflower or Vegetable Oil
  • A pinch of Salt

Instructions

  • Tip the flour and salt into a mixing bowl, create a well in the middle and crack the eggs into the well.

  • Pour in 50ml of semi-skimmed milk, one tablespoon of oil and whisk.

  • Beat the mixture until a smooth consistency forms adding more milk if needed.

  • Continue whisking while slowly add the remaining milk until you have a smooth batter.

  • Grease a frying pan with oil and spread around with kitchen towel then heat the pan over medium heat.

  • Ladle some of the batter into the pan and evenly spread the mixture around by tilting the pan.

  • Cook for 30 seconds or until golden brown, flip and cook the other side.

  • Serve with your favourite toppings.
