An Exceptional Father’s Day

Monday 14 June 2021

A day to celebrate fatherhood, this special occasion is the right time to acknowledge and recognise all dads for their efforts. Being a father brings several challenges and all deserve to be pampered during Father’s Day. The hustle and bustle of everyday life can make the experience of fatherhood a hectic one, and appreciation goes a long way to make things just a bit better.

So how do we allow for a perfect Father’s Day for our great dads?

Start off on the right foot

An exceptional day needs to start off in the right way. Allow your dad to get an extra few hours of sleep and have him covered for a close morning shave, shower and facial products. To help your dad transition to a smooth morning, several outlets such as The Body Shop and Franks at The Plaza have you covered.

You may also want to help your dad to pamper himself with a visit to Antonio’s Barbershop for a cool haircut and defined trim. After that is done, you might want to extend your dad’s pampering with a delightful breakfast served at Dr Juice.

A relaxing afternoon

What’s the best way to combat the stress of a fast-paced lifestyle? A massage, a picnic, a day at the beach or quality lunch should definitely feature on your list. In Malta, there are several places where you can enjoy a tranquil spot without a care in the world. Places such as Wied iz-Zurrieq, Golden Bay and many other quiet and green areas located in the northern area of Malta are ideal for a relaxing picnic. You can also opt to top this relaxing afternoon with a great lunch for Father’s Day, so make sure you plan ahead! 

Expand the movie night experience

What do we lack in today’s fast-paced lifestyle? Quality time! Spending time together with your dad is a gift in itself. One way to spend the night in both an enjoyable and tranquil manner is by watching a good movie or series. For such an occasion, you may decide to treat your father to an enhanced movie experience, through a projector and quality sound system. You would be thrilled to know that Intercomp have available a portable projector, sound bar and speaker to help you out in planning this memorable evening. 

For such a movie night, you need to be spoilt for choice in terms of food options available. The Plaza Food Court offers an extensive selection through a wide variety of international cuisines to satisfy your taste buds.

Care for animals

The Island Sanctuary

The Island Sanctuary has been in operation for over thirty years, catering for the needs of stray and abandoned dogs in Malta. It was originally founded and registered as a charity organisation with the name of Animal Samaritans in 1986. With the granting of an official lease to use Fort Tas-Silg, Delimara in 1991, the Animal Samaritans transferred to a better location and the entity changed its name to The Island Sanctuary.

The Sanctuary is supported by the generous contributions of the public and a number of volunteers who dedicate their time to its running and the welfare of dogs.
