Father’s Day falls this coming Sunday, June 19, so don’t find yourself empty-handed that day to celebrate all the amazing men in your life. If you’re struggling to find something, or if he’s the jack of all trades, check out some of our gift ideas for that dear old dad.
Show him your cooking skills
The saying goes, “The best way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.” So put on an apron and get in the kitchen! Whether you’re making breakfast in bed or going out of your way to cook his favorite dinner, I’m sure you’ll leave your dad grinning from ear to ear.
For international delights, head to the fifth floor of the Summer Mall to Corner delicatessenwhere you can find a range of products from almost every country including delicious meats and cheeses or visit and add Gourmet Sanya (WeChat: gourmetsanya) at the same resort for the best grills, including amazing steaks and fresh vegetables.
Book an evening at his favorite restaurant
There are many amazing places to dine in Sanya, so why not book a family night out or even book a special night out for dad and his favorite wife without the kids! For a more family-friendly experience, head to the Dolphin Bar where kids can stock up on pizza and pasta and dad can satisfy his “meat tooth” with their Sunday deal: buy any steak and get a Ofred bottle of wine and dessert for free after 6pm.
For something a little more upscale for mom and dad to spend an evening alone, try Latabella. This restaurant and wine bistro has just what the doctor ordered for a romantic evening and a perfect gift to boot!

A day at the spa
When we think of a day of pampering, we usually only think of moms, but dad needs #selfcare too! Book her a facial, a massage or even a manicure and pedicure (we saw your feet guys, you need them!) to give her a moment of relaxation and rejuvenation.
Single spa package: 468 RMB
Buy him a gym membership
Sports and fitness are the lifeblood of some men, so why not support their healthy habits and buy or extend their gym membership or workout class. Our fathers are always a strong figure in our lives, so let’s help them continue their good work.

It’s a great idea to involve the whole family. Take a few of your favorite printed photos and give Dad a gift that won’t bring back all your fond memories. Write quotes or notes under the photos to let him know how much you care about him.
Go on an adventure in Hainan’s hinterland

From white-water rafting and waterfall hiking to carts and water parks, get out of Sanya for the day and see what’s in your own backyard. Just two hours away in Wuzhishan is the Red Canyon tourist area. Rafting, aerial obstacle courses, pedal boats and canyoning, it’s fun for the whole family! You can also head north to the Atlantis Water Park or Aquarium – a day of fun and adventure awaits, and you’ll make memories that will last a lifetime.
