Budget-Friendly Father’s Day Celebration

Celebrations doesn’t always have to break the bank. I remember making Father’s day cards with my sisters when we were still little. My father still kept those cards on his old attache case (briefcase). One of our super cheap gifts to him, a hand grip that we purchased using our daily allowance is still in good shape. I honestly never saw my father use those. LOL! But keeping them on his cabinet for more than 20 years meant so much to me and my sisters.

2017 will be my father’s second year of celebrating Father’s day without my mother. In times like this, I know that he would rather see us, his children than go somewhere else. He’s not the type who prefer lavish celebrations so, I plan to throw a simple BBQ party for him at his house in Antipolo. Backyard BBQ is not just an event but a way of life for him! It has always been one of his favorite activities.

But of cousre, checking in a nice hotel within the metro with a relaxing one hour massage is still an option. I am eyeing for a nearby hotel (probably in Ortigas Center or Eastwood City) since we want to avoid the hideous weekend traffic. This reminded me of my travelbook.ph membership. So many hotels to choose from and the best part is, I do not need a credit card to book a room since I have the option to pay at the hotel. Safe and convenient booking, just like what my father would prefer.

Father’s day is just on the horizon. What are your plans? This special day is the best time to show your Dad your appreciation for what he is – the best father in the whole world! A sincere thank you or even just a big hug would mean a lot to him but adding an extra effort won’t hurt…after all, our fathers had sacrificed a lot for us.

Let us know how you’d like to celebrate Father’s day with you Daddy/Tatay/Papa/Pops on the comments section below. We’d love to hear from you too!

Happy father’s day to all the amazing fathers out there!

  1. I do feel you, i remember when me and my sister where still in Elementary days we only make our own Father’s day card and tape it in their wardrobe so when he open his closet he will see our personal DIY card. LOL! but now? we buy gifts for him. I’ve heard a lot about TravelBook I might check it out.
