Unique Father’s Day Ideas For The Non-Traditional Dad

When you think about dads, things like cars, barbecues, power tools, and business. Though these are common interests among men, not all dads are the same. Some dads are the creative type and enjoy music, writing, theater, and creative arts. Some are craftsmen that take pride in working with their hands to create furniture, houses, and other structures. Others are passionate about topics ranging from health and wellness to history and culture. 

Ultimately, everyone’s dad is different, which makes figuring out how to celebrate him during this national holiday even more challenging. If you’re tired of getting your dad traditional gifts that don’t compliment his interests or speak to his passions, perhaps these unique ideas will inspire you. 

Wine Tours

Not all guys enjoy beer and hard liquor. Some prefer the delectable taste of a refreshing glass of wine. If this is your dad, planning a tour of one of LA County’s many wineries is the perfect gift. You can taste wines from around the world, indulge in delicious snacks and meals, learn about pairing and tasting etiquette, and then explore the premises and discover the wine-making process. 

Art Galleries

There’s something about the beauty, message, and authenticity of art that’s all-inspiring. If your dad is more of the creative type, he’ll enjoy exploring the art world. Venice Beach is packed with galleries to blow his mind. The Venice Ocean Front Contemporary Art Gallery, for example, exhibits work developed by artists that go against industry norms to create masterpieces that evoke thought and emotion. You and dad can spend the day exploring new pieces and discussing your points of view. Wrap up your day with a trip to a nearby restaurant for lunch or an early dinner. 

Healthy Dining

Steak and potatoes are often at the top of the list when it comes to favorite meals for dad, but this isn’t always the case. If your dad prefers healthy eating, why not treat him to dinner at a restaurant to accommodate his taste buds? You’ll find that Venice Beach is filled with plant-based and farm-to-table restaurants to spend Father’s Day. 

Dad will get a kick out of trying nutritional dishes that taste as incredible as they look. Whether he likes Italian, Chinese, Mexican, or American cuisine, there’s a restaurant he’s sure to fall in love with. Make it a family affair and reserve an entire section for everyone to eat, socialize, and celebrate the special men in your life. 

Spa Day

Massages, manicures, pedicures, facials, and mud baths aren’t just for women. Men enjoy being pampered and practicing self-care as well. If your dad works hard for a living or prioritizes his health and wellness, a spa day could do his mind and body good. He’ll appreciate the therapeutic benefits of a full-body massage and the rejuvenating confidence-boosting attributes of a facial. Spring for the all-inclusive package to treat dad to the pampering session of a lifetime. 

Father’s Day At Home

Is it challenging to get dad out of the house? Perhaps he has medical conditions that make it hard to get around. Maybe home is his sanctuary where he retreats to after a long workday. Whatever the case is, you can still show dad how much you care. You can send him funny ecards, gather the grandkids for a group video chat, or visit him. Sometimes, all dad needs to feel loved is your presence. While you’re there, you can watch television, work on a project together, or order takeout and enjoy a meal in the backyard. 

Dad on Father’s Day always welcomes macaroni cards, ties with insane patterns, and new socks. Be that as it may, sometimes you simply want to give him more. Think beyond the traditional gift ideas and consider your father’s interests and passions. Then, find an establishment or event that matches. As you can see, Venice Beach has several unique ways to celebrate dad that he’ll cherish forever.
