As more than 63% of Americans are now vaccinated, many are still unable, or feel uncomfortable, to travel to meet loved ones. As Father’s Day is fast approaching, we have a few tips for celebrating the fathers in your life from afar.

Father’s Day this year falls on Sunday, June 20th, so you have plenty of time to plan something special. A good first step is to think about what you would do if you were with them in person. Many use Father’s Day to cook a special meal, so if you’re stuck across the country, try ordering your parent a surprise catered meal, or their favorite takeout. You can also order yourself the same, and eat together over FaceTime. If movie theaters are open in your parent’s area, buy them a movie ticket or a gift card to their local cinema, for dinner and a show.

When thinking about a Father’s Day gift, it can be difficult to find something they’ll like, and that also isn’t a cliche. One fail-safe way to put a smile on their face is by sending them a beautiful framed photo, or a virtual photo frame that shows a slideshow of family images. There’s still plenty of time to ship something from afar.

Another original gift idea is to buy your parent a subscription service. There are plenty of services that offer monthly or bi-monthly deliveries of wine, craft beer, tools, gadgets, personal grooming kits or international snacks.

No matter how far you are from your loved ones, there’s always a way to celebrate holidays together. If you are travelling this Father’s Day, Flightline is there to make sure you arrive to your destination safely and comfortably with our Covid-safe vehicles and trained staff.
