Father’s Day Inspiration

Your dad is one very special guy in your life. He has been there for you for everything, both good and bad! Everything from you first time you rode a bike, to your first heart break, and of course he will be there to walk you down the aisle and hand you off to the man of your dreams. You know what they say – your dad is the first man you have ever loved!
Being the guy that your dad is, he will let you have all the spotlight on your special day. Which is why it is important to give your dad the spotlight that he deserves this Father’s Day! All of us at Calluna put a few ideas together you can do with you good ol’ dad!
Visit a Brewery 
If your Dad is a beer guy or even if he isn’t – take him to visit a brewery. It is the perfect activity for any afternoon and Colorado , especially the Boulder and Denver area, is the hub for some of the best breweries around! You can go and get a flight of beer to try and if you are lucky grab a tasty treat from the food truck parked outside!
Some of the top ones to put on your list to check out:

Go and do something with your dad that he is passionate about! All Dad’s have at least one thing that they love to do – be it fly fishing, hiking, biking, rock climbing, you name it. The activities are endless and Colorado happens to be the perfect backyard for all of these activities! You could even chance it and take your daddio on an adventure he has never even done before – like go do a high ropes course and put your abilities to the test!
Get Your Sport On
There is also the opportunity to get some tickets to a sporting event! Now that the weather has jumped back into summer temperatures and The Rockies are in full swing perhaps take your Dad to watch a ballgame and while you are there grab one of the famous Mile High hot dogs! Yum!
Or you could even go the extra mile – with football season just around the corner, and the first NFL game for the Broncos kicking off here in Colorado perhaps surprise your Dad with some too good to be true tickets!
Good Things Come in Small Packages 
Perhaps your dad is need of some new clothing! Check out Nod & Rose, Cedar & Hyde, and Bespoke Edge to get your dad all geared up in something both trendy and that he will absolutely love!

Or you could go the more sentimental route and get your dad a personalized phonebook or calendar from our favorite, Artifact Uprising!
Whatever it is you choose to do with your dad this Sunday be sure to remind him how much your dad means to you and how lucky you are to have such a strong and steady man in your life! We hope you and your dad have a fabulous weekend! xx, Calluna
