5 Father’s Day Activities For Every Dad Personality


Include a few of these activities from the Manila playground for your Father’s Day itinerary. Here are five ways to spend quality time with your dad on his day

Raise a toast to fathers, stepfathers, uncles, grandfathers, and all other father figures this June 16. Whether he’s the outdoorsy-type, the sort who enjoys an adventure, or someone who likes whipping up something for dinner, MEGAStyle has ideas to help. While a card or thoughtful gift is always appreciated, what he really wants this year might be time with you—which is what these options thankfully bring him. Luckily, Manila has a plethora of ways for these beloved father figures to explore their interests—and for you to have a special day together.

For the Shoe-loving Dad

Finding a good gift for Dad is notoriously difficult. Thankfully, shoes are a good idea—it’s something he’ll love and, more importantly, use. If your dad is a shoe-lover, it can boil down to two things: comfort and style. Birkenstock makes some of the most fashionable yet functional items around, and these two new releases just in time for Father’s Day are no exception. And just like dads, these shoes are also very reliable—an apt gift for the father whose presence is always dependable and reassuring.

Zürich Tech’s unique design and materiality perfectly combine form and function

Check out Birkenstock’s Zürich Tecg, their new collection that definitely takes retro into the future. The futuristic sandal by Birkenstock is its newest innovation, interweaving functionality, design, and novelty. The Zürich Tech shoes are engineered to give the wearer optimal comfort and agility with every step. With its adjustable buckles and lightweight materials that offer maximum comfort and durability, these features liberate the wearer’s range of motion.

The right pair of footwear will also take your look to new heights—or to new places. Make a new companion for your father out of Birkenstock’s second new release: the Shinjuku shoes. These toe the line between duty and delight, allowing you to hit the streets or explore the great outdoors in style. In its distinctive construction and its rugged, outdoor-inspired aesthetic, the Shinjuku sandals offer excellent stability, traction, and extra grip on any surface. Seamlessly blending functional design with reliable performance, the lightweight, high-quality materials make sure that wherever you go, it’s in finesse and comfort.

What’s best—aside from getting your dad a nice treat—is you can make this shopping experience a bonding moment between you two. Transform this retail outing into an enjoyable father-child date. As these two new collections are unisex, you can cop a similar pair, get your own size, and have a cute matching moment with Pops. Plus, if he’s not a shoe-lover after all, this is still a safe and useful pick either way that he can wear and use for years to come.

For the Outdoorsy Dad

If your dad is a weekend warrior, consider joining him on a trail and a much-needed break from city life. Fortunately, there are beginner-friendly hiking trails to get you started. Book a hiking package reservation to witness a sea of clouds, go to magnificent waterfalls, or discover unspoiled woodlands. Klook makes the process easier with its hike tour experiences departing from Manila that are ideal for first-time adventurers. Take an exhilarating day hike to Mt. Daraitan with your dad to immerse yourselves in nature. The itinerary also includes a scenic trek to Tinipak River, where you can witness its pristine waters. As you reach the summit, catch a glimpse of the breathtaking view of the Sierra Mountain Range.

For the Experimental and Foodie Dad

Bond with dad over a shared love of food by taking a baking class together. Bakebe, a baking studio located in S’Maison Pasay, SM Aura Taguig, and SM North Edsa, is offering an exclusive baking session for the whole family running for the whole of June. Whip up some fresh pastries or a cake from scratch. Hand roll, shape, boil, and bake together as a bonding activity, and take home your tasty creations along with some newfound skills.

For the Playful Dad

If your dad is someone who’s on the hunt for some fun or someone just looking for a fuss-free, enjoyable pastime, bowling can be your best option. Playing a game would allow your dad and the entire family to relax and have a good time. Score a fun Father’s Day at Makati and Pasig’s indoor bowling and billiards center, Studio 300, and have a bite in between rounds or enjoy some karaoke. The activity’s indoor setting is also a bonus as you wouldn’t have to worry about abruptly changing your plans when the rain starts pouring in. And since winning or losing isn’t a priority—unless competitiveness runs in the family genes—you could keep the chats, laughs, and jokes rolling throughout the game.

For the Adventurous Dad

A final activity for the adventurous and game-for-anything dad is to visit the local shooting range. The idea of firing guns together is a great way to sharpen your reflexes, release some stress, or to just have fun. You and your father can gain new talents and strengthen your relationship by engaging in an  activity that will both help you embrace your inner sharpshooters. Visit Stronghand Shooting Range at E. Rodriguez, Quezon City and book a Beginner’s Marksmanship Package. Occasionally, they hold weekend competitions for club members and non-members alike.
