It's Father's Day on 21 June 2020 and so, it's the perfect time to honour our Dads and other paternal relationships, and the influence these men have on society and our lives.

Our fathers do a lot for us, and many of these things are done, perhaps, without our knowing them, so, this is the perfect time to show them how much you care. There are so many ways to show them how special they are to you, even if you can’t take them to their favourite restaurant, pamper them with a special meal, or take them to the mall to buy them a special gift right now.

So, even though most of us are staying home and safe these days to prevent the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in Qatar, that doesn't mean you can't celebrate Father's Day.

Here we are, sharing with you ways that you can celebrate the men who are the reason for you this Father's Day!

1. Order him a nice gift from Store974

We're sure there's something your Dad's been eyeing for a while, but hasn't bought because, for Dad's, the children's needs and wants come first, so why not get it for him. He'll be so pleased, especially since we're sure he loves electronics. Store974 is the best PC gaming store in Qatar, but it also has a lot of other really cool electronic stuff that we know for a fact your Dad will love. You can order him something from the store and have it delivered or you can get him a Store974 gift card so he can choose what he wants. He'll be over the moon! We guarantee you that!

Check out Store974 now, and buy your Dad a gift now:

2. Go on a virtual tour together

Most people are going to avoid travelling right now because the whole world is in the grip of the coronavirus (COVID-19) - some more than others - but that doesn't mean you can't see the world. Thanks to modern technology, you can now stay home and still check out different countries and different destinations.

So, this Father's Day, why not go on a virtual tour with your Dad and travel around the world. There are some fascinating places around the world that you can see while you stay home and celebrate with your Dad. We've included some of them below:

  1. Virtual Travel Experiences That Let You Explore the World From Your Living Room
  2. The World’s 15 Best Virtual Tours To Take During Coronavirus
  3. 45+ of The Best Virtual Tours Around the World
  4. 35 Virtual Field Trips
  5. Virtual Travel Tours

Locally, The National Museum of Qatar, The Museum of Islamic Art, and Mathaf: Arab Museum of Modern Art have each created a spotlight on the beauty and reverence of Arab art by offering a unique virtual experience through Google Arts & Culture. You may have physically seen these collections before through the barrier of a glass case, but through this platform, you can interact with the objects and artworks in a more intimate way. You are able to go into a microscopic level of detail by zooming into the fascinating objects and see things that you couldn’t with the naked eye.

3. Virtual get-together with old friends

Surprise your Dad by setting up a virtual get together through Zoom or Microsoft Teams with some of his oldest friends who he hasn't been in touch with for a while because of his busy schedule. Staying at home in Qatar because of the coronavirus (COVID-19) doesn't mean we can't stay connected with each other. He definitely won't be expecting something like this for sure!

4. Get to know more about his childhood and growing up days

This is a great time to get to know more about your Dad and how he spent his childhood. He must have some great memories and stories that he can share with you, and you can all have a good laugh about.

5. Teach him your favourite video game and play together

Your Dad may not have a lot of time because he is out of the house a lot working and taking care of other things, but this 'stay at home' situation in Qatar means he's home a little more. So, why not teach him your favourite video game and play together the whole afternoon. It'll be so much fun!

6. Buy him a new wallet

I know from experience that my Dad's wallet was always in bad shape because he kept it in his back pocket, so it usually got all bent out of shape. We would have to force him to buy a new wallet, and now that we're older, we buy it it for him ourselves. The malls are open at the moment, so it shouldn't be too hard to find something nice for him, though we still recommend you stay home, order it and have it delivered.

7. Order his favourite meal

At this critical time, when Qatar and all of the people here are taking precautions to ensure the coronavirus (COVID-19) doesn't spread further and staying indoors as much as possible, there are a number of eateries in Doha that have home deliveries. So, why not order your Dad his favourite meal (one that he's been craving since most of the restaurants were closed to help restrict the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in Qatar, and are now open for delivery or take away) from his favourite restaurant. Lay the table all fancy and enjoy a lovely meal with the most important man in your life!

Many of these home deliveries are available through the various food delivery apps available in Qatar:

8. Make him a special handmade gift

We all love gifts, and he's no different. Take out some time to make him a heartfelt gift – a token of your love for him - that’s meaningful. It can be anything; just the fact that it’s handmade will make him feel special because he’ll know you specially took out the time for him.

9. Take lots of photographs

Take plenty of photographs with your Dad this Father's Day and choose which ones you both like so you can hand them on the walls! If you're Dad isn't with you, how about choosing your favourite pictures with him and sending them to him.

10. What if your Dad is not here in Qatar with you

It would be lovely if we could see our Dads every day or, at least, a few times a week, but that isn't always possible especially if you're here and he's in another country. In this case, you can still make him feel special on Father's Day and do many of the things mentioned above with him, but virtually. You can also give him a call and talk to him about things he'd like to talk about, send him a gift voucher or order him something nice online or e-mail him a lovely heartfelt note telling him how much important he is to you!
