This Sunday is Father’s Day and while we will be attending a birthday lunch for a friend’s one-year old, later Manini and I will be spending the day making her Papa feel super special. She’s already thrilled about what ‘present’ we’ll be getting him as well as the cake we’ll be baking for him.
Our celebration is going to be simple – cake, a gift picked or made by Manini and dinner at Mayank’s favorite place and lots of time spent together. Simple togetherness. The best kind.
Here are some more great ideas for simple and sweet Father’s Day celebrations from some of my favorite places online. Yes, you have ideas for gifts, food and fun:
