The lockdown restrictions may be easing, but budgets for
gifts are still tight. This shouldn’t let you miss out on gifting your father
this Father’s Day. Just remember, the most important factor when choosing the
perfect gift is to find out what your dad is missing, then shop local and support
local businesses. That way everyone is happy.

BDD has compiled a father’s day gift guide, for all types of
dads (and budgets):

Gift your dad an experience

Having been in lockdown for months, a breath of fresh air is
always a good treat. Book a bed and breakfast or hotel experience for your
father, outside of the city. Check out www.hotelibanais.com for the most
charming bed and breakfasts and guesthouses across Lebanon, and give back to
the town it is located in.

If he has a hobby or passion

If your dad has any type of hobby or something he is
passionate about, create a gift basket. For example, if he has a flair for
gardening, now is the perfect time to turn balconies into mini farms. Put
together a gift basket with pots, tools and seeds, and watch nature takes its
course (Check out the Garden in a Box concept by Arbusta by Unifert). If your
father is into fitness, a new pair of sneakers and workout clothes, would be
ideal (Check out Mike Sport). If you want him to get fit and healthy, put
together a few treats and snacks from a local store (Check out Better Life Market or Eshmoon Holistics). Or even buy him a cookbook of his favorite
cuisine, and let the culinary magic happen (Check out Levantine Harvest by Lara
Ariss).

Make a donation in his name

There are hundreds of NGOs giving back to communities and
areas of Lebanon that need the most attention. Surely, your father would
appreciate a donation in his name, for a cause he supports. From food box
donations that you can easily order online, to community projects around you.
The Lebanese Food Bank is receiving donations on their website for food boxes,
distributed to those in need,and organizations such as Offre Joie have prepared
Foodkit donations, that can be processed through the noknok app. Give back in
his name, and let him know with a card.

A bit of self-care goes a long way

The impact of the economic crisis, COVID-19 and general
instability has taken its toll on everyone… and perhaps it shows a little more
on your father’s face. Put together a self-care plan for your dad. This could
be a spa treatment at a local hotel, or a few facial products to combat signs
of anti-ageing (Check out Feel22 and Mint Basil Market for products).

Some fun and games

Order board games online, through the Toters App, and bring
some fun into his life. Join in as a family, schedule weekly game nights, and
share some laughter. (Check out Boardgame Corner, JoueClub and Le Jouer on the
Toters App for some ideas).

Revive the music

Does your father have a favorite song or band that he is
always humming to the rhythm of? Check out local record stores, and buy his
favorite song or album, as an LP (Check out Chico Records). If you still have
a budget to allocate, why not buy a trendy record player too (Check out Virgin
for some good deals).

Whatever you choose to gift your father, let him know how
special he is… even if you opt for a card.

Wishing every dad and father to be, a very happy Father’s
day. May we have brighter days ahead of us all.
