5 Ways to Celebrate Father’s Day This Year

Father’s Day is around the corner, and the age-old question comes up: what should I get him?

Many fathers say “nothing” when asked what they desire. And so we decided to create the ultimate guide to help you celebrate your dad today and every day. 

Without further ado, here are 5 ways you can celebrate Father’s Day.

1. Buy Him a Gift 

Father’s Day gifts should be personal. Before deciding on the gift, make sure to take into account his interests, and his lifestyle, and set a budget.

Your dad may not have told you what he wants when you asked, but you have probably noticed something he needs in his day-to-day activities. Something worn out. Something he says he will get for himself. That is where you should start.

Thankfully, many options are not only certain to bring a smile to his face, but are also affordable. Some of the gift ideas we recommend below are from our Tingg Partners. You can also make an extra personal gift at home with help from little hands.

Our recommendations

  • Watch: A man can never have too many watches, right? Or he probably has a fav that is worn out now. Get him one that suits his taste and he will love it!
  • Shoes: A man is known by his shoes, or so they say. Buy your dad a comfy pair for his daily grind. Not so sure he will like them? Walk into that shoe shop with him and let him pick something out. Check out some stylish men’s shoes on City Walk. What’s more, pay with Tingg on Checkout and you get a discount for purchases above Ksh5,000! Discount/coupon code: CITY5.
  • Smartphone: You can never go wrong with this one, especially if he is currently having trouble with his present phone. Check out the latest phones available on Jumia and have it delivered easily by Glovo.
  • Toolbox: If he does not have one, a toolbox would be very handy for a father who loves fixing stuff around the home. 
  • Subscription: Does your father love reading? Crossword puzzles? Movies? There are a ton of different options online to fulfil whatever floats his boat. For the reading dad, you can always get him an online magazine or news subscription or better yet, a Kindle Unlimited gift. You watch Netflix all the time, but have you ever considered your dad could be interested in the same? Surprise him soon!
  • Homemade card: There’s nothing quite like a heartfelt, homemade gift. Whether it’s a card with a personal message or a small craft project you worked on together, your dad will appreciate the time and effort you put into making it for him. This is where the little hands we mentioned are especially useful.
  • Travel voucher: Spoil him with a travel voucher to see your country or another part of the world! To get you started, check out Kenya’s Jambojet offers to the most exquisite tourist destinations. In addition, you can sign him up for the Jambojet loyalty program to enjoy amazing benefits with each flight!

2. Do Something Fun Together

Sometimes, the best gift is time. Actually, a lot of times. Your dad misses you, though he might not admit it especially, if you are of age and out here adulting. 

Take that Sunday out to just be with him. Take him out. Check out some mouthwatering deals at Nando’s. Bring his grandchildren to fuss over him. Take pictures. Cook. Let him show you his latest pet projects around the house or farm. 

He will appreciate it for sure. And let it not end with Father’s Day. Make sure to carve out time whenever you can to see him again and make his days all the more memorable.

3. Money

Let’s be honest, when you are completely blank on ideas, no one minds some money in their pocket for appreciation. Top up his M-Pesa or MoMo. Or pay his bills. 

A quick and safe way to pay his house bills such as electricity, water, or DSTV/GoTV is through Tingg by Cellulant. To access these services, dial *369# in Kenya, *223# in Uganda, *234# in Ghana or *265# in Zambia.  Introduce him to this cool way of making payments. He can now wave goodbye to memorising account numbers for payments.

He will likely do something that makes him happy or maybe even treat someone else in turn. You know how selfless these dads can get. The gift of choice right there! 

4. Curate a Playlist

What are your dad’s favourite songs? Which ones did he rave about in your childhood? Which ones get him on his feet today? 

Think about them and list them down. Then find the most suitable way to curate them for him. A YouTube playlist? Spotify? A folder in his memory card? Do it. 

You could also decide to go the celebratory way and curate a playlist of Father’s Day songs. We have a few ideas for you below. Whether he likes rock, pop, gospel, country or rap songs, you can browse and find some songs that capture your special relationship. 

If you set it up right, you might just bring a tear to his eye. 

To start you off

  • “Superman” – Cassper Nyovest ft. Tsepo Tshola: This song from South Africa is all about celebrating your dad as the hero he is. Sample these lyrics – “My father is a superhero ’cause he was always there to save me. When I’m in trouble and feeling helpless and caged in. He would just suddenly appear outta nowhere and kick all my problems away.”
  • “My Daddy Is a Champ” – Jayso: The title says it all. In the same spirit from across the continent – from Ghana with love! 🇬🇭 
  • Bread Winner – ProVerb: What is a dad if not a breadwinner? Your dad will definitely relate to this banger. “A lil’ something for the fathers that know how to be a man and work harder to bring something to the fam. You would rather make sure the kids are fed dinner. I’m talking to the real breadwinners.”
  • “Bamba” – Youssou N’Dour: Straight from Senegal, we bet your dad will appreciate hearing these words sung to him. “My strong faith in you makes me survive this crazy world. Now I can go anywhere because I know you’ll be there.”
  • “Papa Was a Rolling Stone” by The Temptations: A jazzy intro gives way to a story about a son who never knew his dad. Despite the sad topic, the honest song hit home for a lot of people in the ’70s.
  • “Dance With My Father” by Luther Vandross: It’s a wedding staple for a reason: Luther Vandross sings about a son’s treasured memories of dancing with his father, who has since passed away. We dare you not to shed a tear when he croons, “How I’d love to dance with my father again.”

5. Teach Him a New Trick

Has dad been struggling with something? Does he keep telling you to teach him how to post a WhatsApp status? Or to set up something digital that he cannot wrap his head around? This is not the time to groan about him not moving with the times. Now is the time to rise to the occasion and fix everything for him. 

In fact, we have another idea for the dad in your life who is a businessman. Has his business gone cashless yet? If not, we have just the thing for you. Check out Tingg, our payment gateway for all things digital payments. He can plug into different tools to receive payments at his shop or online business all on one seamless platform. 

We’re here if you have any questions about this. Hit our chat bubble on the bottom right side or contact us here.

What will it be? Whether you make something special, purchase a meaningful gift or make a simple phone call, the smallest gesture can have the largest impact. 

Show you care and make this Father’s Day special for your dad.
