Treat him to a pre-Father’s Day office lunch
Every dad expects something to go down on Father’s Day – so why not mix it up and surprise him a few days before? Do a little bit of recon and figure out what the rest of his week at work might be like, then find a day to swing by and surprise him with a pre-Father’s Day lunch date. Use your own discretion, however – your pops might be a planner and require more of a heads up, so perhaps build a bit of flexibility or take out the element of surprise when executing this plan for your dad.
