Celebrating Father's Day with WEMAX

Thoughtful Father's Day gifts are good, but more than anything else all dads out there appreciate some time with their kids. Because no matter what your age or accomplishments, for your dad, you will still be the kid who got through every milestone in life with some help and encouragement from him.

And WEMAX, with its exclusive range of products, is here to help you to make this Father's Day truly special. In fact, with WEMAX's top-of-the-line offerings that your dad can use almost every day, you can turn your Father's Day gift and the day itself into a cherished memory.

Fun Activities and Gift Ideas For Father's Day!

1. Host a movie night with Dad

Host a movie night with Dad on Fathers Day

When was the last time you went to the movies with your dad? Bet, it was a while ago. You know as kids, many of us had that one movie that we made our parents sit through over and over again, and they indulged us.

And the happy memories of that movie/movies linger with our parents and us. So, wouldn't it be great to relive the experience of that first flick or even the most memorable flicks you watched in the movie theater with your dad?

Unfortunately, watching those movies on the TV screen just doesn't cut it. After all, you can't very well bring the cinematic opulence of a movie theater to a 50-inch TV screen.

But, a home theater projector will do the trick! In fact, there is no better way to have some quality time with your dad on Father's Day than to host a movie night right at home.

Best gift idea: Home theater projector and projector screen

5. Enjoy a dinner feast

If you are expecting a busy day come June 18th, you could plan a sumptuous dinner feast to celebrate Father's Day. Heading to a restaurant is one way to do it. But, that's bound to be just about food, so it comes across more as a cursory activity than a specially planned event.

Best gift idea: Polarized sunglasses or a folding beach chair for beach bumming

If you intend to spend the day at the beach, put together a beach-day gift basket for Dad with his favorite sunscreen, polarized sunglasses, and of course a 6-12 pack of his favorite beer brand. An alternative would be a new folding beach chair with an umbrella no less.

7. Play games with the whole family

Play games with the whole family on Fathers Day

If you would rather spend this Father's Day indoors, a fun activity that can involve just your dad and you or the entire family would be an indoor game day.

Best gift idea: Family board games, card games, or gaming console
