9 Ways to Celebrate Father's Day Virtually If You Can't Be Together in Person
Father’s Day is only a few weeks away, and because the pandemic isn't over yet, there's a good chance you'll be celebrating the holiday from a distance (again). I’m close with both of my parents, so I wasn’t thrilled about the idea of spending Mother’s and Father’s Day apart from them at the start of the pandemic last year, but after discovering how fun it was to celebrate them virtually, I'm looking forward to doing it again this year.
While things aren't quite as locked down as last year (it's okay to have a socially distant outdoor gathering with Dad this year, especially if you're both fully vaccinated), travel is still not advised. So if you don't live near each other, a virtual celebration is the way to go.
This year, Father's Day is on Sunday, June 20. And even if you can’t do the typical Father’s Day activities this year, these fun ideas can help you make the day special for Dad. One of the easiest ways to celebrate from a distance is to turn his gift into something to do together: Get him a book to jumpstart a monthly book club, or gift him a new kitchen gadget and plan a virtual cooking date. Remember that this holiday isn't just about celebrating your biological dad; use these ideas to celebrate the dads, stepdads, granddads, and other father figures in your life.
