Father’s Day is a dedicated time to let the father figures in your life know just how much you love and appreciate everything they have done for you. However, finding the perfect Father’s Day gifts can be tricky. If your gift-giving has become a bit stale (let’s face it—he only needs so many ties, tools, or grill supplies), don’t worry, I’ve got some great Father’s Day celebration ideas.

1. Organize a dinner and movie night.
2. Find a local class you both enjoy.
3. Take him to a craft brewery or go wine tasting
4. Make your Dad something special
5. Go enjoy the great outdoors together!
6. Offer to help with a yard or home project
7. Give him a thoughtful card with tickets
