While researching some creative and romantic ideas to do for my husband this Father’s Day, I came up with the idea of giving him a weekend away. He does it for my birthday weekend every year and I absolutely love it, no matter how simple it is. He says it’s well worth the money because I always come home so “appreciative” as he puts it! That’s because I’ve had some rest and a little time to myself. It’s easy to get romantic when you’ve spent a couple days de-stressing.
I spent a little time looking around online for some places to ship him off to.
For convenience, it needs to be something within an hour or two of home so he doesn’t waste his weekend getting there and back. I may end up sending him to a hotel near here that supposedly has a really great new golf course.
But while I was surfing for ideas, I found this site called “Mantripping“, which is dedicated to guy vacations, or mancations as they call them. I thought they were just called “guy’s weekends” but I guess they have their own designation now.
Some of the ideas are for destinations or events that are too far away for my plans, but some of them may be right in your neck of the woods. They have all kinds of articles and resources on man-friendly events and festivals, information on adventure travel and fishing trips and all kinds of ideas.
It looked to me like they pretty much covered any guy’s tastes and interests.
Check the site out to see if there’s a weekend you can plan for your guy this Father’s Day or for a birthday or other special occasion. I had a lot of fun reading through the different weekend destinations and may pick out a couple that my husband and I can do together as well.
As for this Father’s Day, I think that if Ed is as “appreciative” of his weekend as I am of mine, a Father’s Day getaway for him will be a gift for me, too!
