Looking for a not-so-average Father's Day gift? For us, it always starts with Açaí. We have five killer ideas to celebrate the father figure in your life, whether it's for dad, grandpa, stepdad, uncle, or dad-to-be, that go beyond the typical last-minute gift card. Make the day extra special by spending time with loved ones, and sharing a memory that will last for years to come.
1. Build a Pillow Fort
Whip out a white sheet and a projector for a fun night watching all of his favorite films. Go above and beyond with a cozy lounge set up including some fuzzy blankets and pillows. Whether he's into the classics, comedies, or even indulges in a rom-com or two, this is a great way to spend time together that feels more special than a night on the couch in the living room. Don't forget the snacks! Our Chocolate Superfruit Açaí Bites are sure to be a hit with dad - not to mention the entire family.
2. Hit the Road
Get outside and enjoy a father's day afternoon in the sunshine with a bike ride to his favorite lunch spot. Take the scenic route and enjoy your neighborhood full of friendly faces. Another great option to surprise dad with is a packed picnic lunch full of all his favorite foods, including our Dragon Fruit Juice. Dad is sure to love its smooth exotic taste of Pitaya paired with mixed berries and a zest of ginger - the perfect refreshment for a post-bike ride cool down.
3. Laugh harder
Buy him tickets to see his favorite stand-up comedian, or attend a local comedy show to see up-and-coming talent. As a family, you're likely to have similar senses of humor, so this a great activity to do with a group to get the laughter flowing. Experience-based presents are a great way to spend time together, which is often the best gift of all.
4. Play to Win
If your dad is the outdoorsy type, plan some fun activities that involve getting active for father's day. Enjoy some friendly competition with a game of bocce ball, a round of pickleball, an obstacle course, or a good ol' fashioned game of catch. Get the entire family involved and make teams of girls vs. boys or parents vs. kids. You'll create epic memories, bring out that competitive edge, and enjoy the chance to grow young again as everyone taps into their inner child. And nothing is more reminiscent of a day from a childhood spent playing outdoors better than our Açaí Smoothie Pops - sure to bring those summer memories of frozen treats in the hot sun rushing back.
5. Get Crafty
Our favorite way to spoil dad is to whip up a delicious snack or meal in the kitchen. Plan out your father's day celebration with recipes that are sure to bring a purple smile to his face. Might we suggest something to cure his sweet tooth? Our No Bake Açaí Cheesecake Bar Recipe by Carly of Fit Loving Eats is tasty, easy to make, and gluten-free. Looking for a boozier option?

However you celebrate the father figures in your life, the most important piece of the puzzle is being together and enjoying each other's company. Love generously, and be sure to include SAMBAZON in your Father's Day celebrations because happiness is homemade. Together, we Açaí!
