For Father’s Day, I’d love a weekend away with my closest brothers, who are also dads. We’d go to a wellness resort where we could make noise, play dumb and slightly unsafe games, watch football, play PS5, and enjoy large portions of different kinds of barbecue. Another great option would be a weekend away with my son, doing activities like go-karting and visiting theme parks. On the material side, I’d really appreciate a new built-in workstation and gamer set-up with dope tech, or even a wardrobe makeover.

Honestly I’ve never thought about this nor has it crossed my mind that a dad could want something for Father’s Day. After a lot of thought, I think what will really melt my heart is to have my daughter knock on my door on that very morning, walk in and say “Happy Fathers’ Day to the best dad in the world, I love you and I’m glad to have you as my dad”. That would be a major win for me.

Father to an adult


Honestly, if money weren’t a concern, the ultimate Father’s Day gift would be a special family reunion and getaway with my nuclear family to the Bahamas for a week. Next on the list would be a Skoda Superb 2024 car. Lastly, a new home/simple functional bungalow on a mountain top in Nigeria.


I may not be a dad, but if I had to choose the perfect gift, it would be a family trip. There’s nothing more luxurious than spending quality time with loved ones and savoring every moment together.


After receiving their responses, it’s clear that many remarkable men share this sentiment. They value experiences over material gifts. So, if you’re searching for the ideal Fathers’ Day present, consider giving the gift of an unforgettable experience. Trust me, it’s a sure way to make his day special.
