Dads can be difficult to buy for at the best of times, but 2020 has changed everything and a lot of us will be finding it even harder this year, with social distancing still in place for most countries. So here are a few suggestions for ways you can spoil your dad even if you're not able to celebrate with him right now.

How to Celebrate a Socially Distanced Father's Day


1. Send him a personalised card and gift
Let Dad know you're thinking of him by creating a personalised card on moonpig.com and, if you're not able to visit, having it sent straight to his house. Moonpig also offers a varied selection of Father's Day gifts, which takes the hassle out of shopping for a present. Whatever his interests, you're sure to find something to suit him.

2. Buy an experience for after lockdown
Another great gift for your dad is an experience that you can enjoy together. Buy it now, and as soon as we're allowed to see each other again you can take him for a day out of his choice. I picked this Mega Choice for Two gift voucher from Moonpig which includes a choice of 14 experiences, including entrance to a castle, a ghost walk tour, an escape room experience, a segway experience and even zorbing. 


3. Hold a socially distanced garden party
If you live close to your dad and the weather's nice on Father's Day, you could invite him and a couple of other people round to celebrate the day with a picnic, barbecue or tea party in your back garden. Just make sure to stick to the social distancing guidelines currently in place in your area.

4. Organise a virtual gathering
For those not able to visit their dad this year, a virtual meetup on a platform such as Zoom or Houseparty is the next best thing. You can invite as many friends and family as you want to your online bash and have fun together without any worry. 

I hope this post has given you a few good ideas for ways to hold a socially distanced Father's Day celebration in 2020. Let's hope that by next year we'll all be able to celebrate together again! 

How will you be celebrating Father's Day this year?

  1. Great ideas for a socially distant father's day. It is a totally different way of life at the moment, isn't it? Who would have thought we would still be in a semi-lockdown now!

    Thanks for sharing!

    1. I know! When we went into lockdown in March I didn't think we'd still be here in mid-June!

    1. It has definitely been difficult not being able to see our families. Hopefully it won't be for much longer.

    1. I love buying experiences for people. It gives them something to look forward to and the memories can last forever.

  6. Really lovely ideas. I normally take my Dad for afternoon tea after Father’s Day.

    This year though, he can actually come to our house to have lunch because he has been alone for the lockdown he can join our bubble and I am so excited for it.

    I’ve gone for a good hamper for my Dad, naughty treats that he would never buy himself x

  7. Some lovely ideas here. I can't wait to see my dad again, but will have to. Sending a gift instead. As for me, my wife's birthday clashes with Father's Day so I'll be very much taking a back seat by choice!

    1. I love that you've bought something to keep him busy while he's stuck at home! I also bought my dad a few books because he likes reading and he's starting to get bored in lockdown :)
