How To Surprise Your Father On His Birthday

Fathers are the stalwart protectors and providers of the family. They are also considered as the pillars and the foundation that gives strength and courage. Together with the mother, nurtures the children and preparing them to become a competent and responsible adult in the future. He is the one real superhero that we always have.

Aside from father’s day, your dad’s birthday may be one of those days that is very important. Your dad will treat it as an average day, prioritizing first the family before himself. Due to all the responsibilities on his shoulders, he may have little to no time to unwind and free himself of the daily stress of being a father. A great birthday present is all it needs for him to make him happy on his birthday.

Daddy’s Day Out

All of us needs a breather, a break in which we can free ourselves of the daily stress and hectic schedule of our daily lives. Fathers probably have the busiest schedule in every family, and a great way to celebrate his birthday is to make it into a day-off. I mean, it is his birthday, and he is entitled to do pretty much anything that he wants. Though, even if it is just for a day. Fathers are the king of a kingdom which is his family, so it is appropriate to make him feel like one.

I know fathers don’t ask much, so you can just let him be on his birthday. He may laze around the couch watching TV or play video games. Or go with his old pals and crack a cold one with them, or continue on a hobby that he doesn’t have time to do before. All in all, he needs to have fun, and his kind of fun, on his birthday.

Surprise Him, Go Out Have Fun

Have a fishing trip, a vacation with him (or just a vacation trip for two with mom), doing some outdoor activities with him (or just for him alone if he wants). And other things that will make him forget about all those things that bug his mind every day. Dads mostly do not want anything for themselves (since they can get it for themselves if they’re going to). And what they need is an escape from all his responsibilities, even just for a day. Surely he will appreciate that and may think of it as the single most fabulous birthday gift that you can give to him.

Give Him Something Special

Aside from his most desired day-off, probably something can make his birthday complete. If your father is an avid collector of something, you can give him something that may complete his collection. A particular wine or liquor that he may enjoy is appreciated too. Other gift ideas, such as a brand new toolset, a watch, a brand new car (if you can afford one, totally optional) and pretty much anything he can use daily can be a leuke verjaardagscadeau for him.


The best birthday gift that you can give to your dad is time. I mean quality time with him and the whole family. For a dad only wants to be with his family, the single greatest gift he ever received.
