Dad has always been the rock, the one you can count on. He’s been there behind the scenes for every stage of your life. Every skinned knee, every ball game, every big event and all the little moments in between. He sacrificed sleeping in and effortless cool for early morning ball games and dad jokes. And don’t even get him started on his “dad bod.”
This year, skip the standard Father’s Day gift ideas and dig a little deeper for a Father’s Day gift with meaning. To get you on the right track, here’s our list of 5 Fresh Ideas for What to Do This Father’s Day.
1. Host a cookout in his honor.
For as long as you can remember, Dad has been the family weekend warrior, laboring over the grill to cook perfect, mouth-watering steaks, burgers and brats for family and friends alike. This year, why not show him your appreciation by inviting him over for a cookout in his honor? Stock up on all his favorite drinks and snacks, then order his favorite cut of steak. Don’t forget to serve up his favorite sides and a heaping helping of dessert.
For a winning Father’s Day celebration, forget grocery store fodder and step up your dad-game. Order your Father’s Day cookout menu in advance and go with premium beef and sides, such as:
This USDA Prime selection hits a home run with 4 (6 ounce) USDA Prime Filet Mignon and 4 (12 ounce) USDA Prime Ribeyes. There’s a reason we call these our “favorites” – and we know Dad will agree with us! Serve up with decadent Lobster Loaded Potatoes and a light salad.
Aged to perfection and finely marbled for impeccable flavor, we know Dad will be thrilled with the cut that put Kansas City on the map. Follow our simple, step by step instructions on how to cook strip steak for a meal that hits Dad’s mark.
Is Dad a burger fanatic? Say no more. USDA Prime Steakburgers pack big, mouthwatering steakhouse flavor into every single bite. Order some for your Father’s Day cookout…and some for yourself. Serve up with exclusive Kansas City Steak Fries and Dad’s favorite baked beans, then sit back and enjoy the compliments.
2. Take care of his “honey do” list.
Dad has done a lot for you over the years. He’s sacrificed his youth, his weekends and even his hairline to make sure you had everything you needed. This Father’s Day, do something that will take a little weight off his shoulders. Do some covert leg work and find out which home projects he has been avoiding, then either do them yourself or hire someone to take care of them. This act of service may not be gift wrapped, but trust us. Dad will appreciate your efforts more than you know.
3. Make new memories together.
Is there anything that says “Dad” more than a laid-back afternoon relishing in his favorite sport? What sport does your own Dad enjoy most? Does he like to get in the game? Or does he enjoy spectator sports more? Either way, schedule time to bond with him over whatever sport he enjoys. Buy tickets and take him to a baseball game, schedule a tee time for two at his favorite course or take him to his favorite sports bar to catch the big race. Plan a bowling night or a weekend trip to catch his favorite team in action. Whatever it looks like, Dad will get to do something he loves most with someone he loves best…and we think that’s the perfect recipe for Father’s Day success.
4. Reminisce and say thanks.
As the years go by, our memories tend to fade. Take some time to sit down and reflect on a few of your favorite memories with your Dad. Think about the time he taught you to play baseball, or that camping trip when he forgot the tent at home, or when he taught you to drive, or when he dropped you off at college. Jot down a few of those memories so you don’t forget, and make it a point to share them with him this Father’s Day. It’s easy to get so wrapped up in the busyness of life that we forget to acknowledge our past and the impact Dad has had on us over the years.
5. Give the gift of good grilling.
Standard Father’s Day gifts are usually centered around home improvement and typical “dad duties.” This year, shake things up and give Dad the gift he really wants – the gift of good taste and memories. Forget nose hair trimmers, tools and the like and choose something that will make his mouth water. Dad loves the memories you have made together just as much as you, so why not give him a gift that will spark new memories? To make your choice simple, we’ve put together this Father’s Day gift guide packed with all the things Dad loves best. Pick from any one of these mouth-watering gifts guaranteed to show Dad just how much he really means to you.
The Grand Collection is aptly named, offering up 4 (16 ounce) Kansas City Strips, 4 (16 ounce) Boneless Ribeyes and 4 (12 ounce) Crown Filet Mignon steaks. Dad will feel the love when he breaks out these perfectly aged, finely marbled steaks.
Perfect for the Dad who loves the land and sea, Dad’s Classic Surf and Turf includes melt-in-your-mouth Super-Trimmed Filet Mignon, succulent North Atlantic Lobster Tails and Cheddar and Bacon Twice Baked Potatoes.
If your father’s a foodie, look no further: this Father’s Day Flavor Feast is for him. Packed with flavor and featuring both savory roasted garlic and Tuscan herb finishing butters, this mash up of 4 (8 ounce) Boneless Ribeyes and 4 (6 ounce) Super-Trimmed Filet Mignon steaks will delight Dad – and his dinner guests.
