After celebrating Mother´s Day on the 13th of May, we now have to start thinking about our Daddies and what to give them for Father´s Day on the 17th of June.
Here are two ideas for Father's Day gifts dads are guaranteed to appreciate far more than the usual aftershave and slippers.
If your dad is the adventurous type, give him a gift he'll really love: some time outdoors doing his favourite things. Give a golfer dad a one day pass to an exclusive golf course, send an adrenaline junkie white river rafting or book a fishing excursion if he prefers a more peaceful setting. If your dad really needs some spoiling, why not arrange a full day of activities for him?
The Arabella Hotel & Spa just outside of Cape Town is the perfect spot to keep your dad busy from sunup to sundown. He could start the day off with a round of golf on the world class green, follow that up with some kayaking or horseback riding (or both), and end the day off with a walk in the Kogelberg Biosphere.
If your dad likes to take care of himself, why not book him a "male grooming" session at a salon? Many salons now offer packages designed specifically for men. The Life Day spa at African Pride Crystal Towers Hotel & Spa has a "Time for Him" package that includes a sports massage, a skin treatment and sometime relaxing in the spa's flotation pool.
After the treatment he lays by the pool on the hotel's deck, sipping on a cocktail and taking in the stunning views of Table Mountain.
