What dads need this Father’s Day

ALL dads want to relax on Father’s Day but there are a whole lot of things nagging at his mind—chores that need to be done around the house.

 These 10 ideas from Snupit will help dads around SA have a relaxing Father’s Day.

#1 A once-over
Little repairs around the house probably stress your dad out more than the big ones. How about getting a handyman in and giving the house a once-over? Sort out the plumbing, fix all the lights and repair some of those unsightly wall cracks. It’s a whole collection of small jobs he won’t have to do. What a great gift.

#2 A garden clean-up
If gardening isn’t a job your dad enjoys, how about getting a garden service in for one day. They can mow the lawn, trim the shrubs and neaten the edges around the garden beds.

#3 Automating the garage doors
Nothing is more important to your dad than the safety of his family. Automated garage doors are not only convenient, they also add extra protection to your dad’s vehicle. While you’re at it, consider having his gate automated too.

#4 Shelves
Putting up shelves is the best way to neaten up any area in the home. But putting them up isn’t exactly the most fun job. A carpenter can help. Hire one for the day and give your dad the gift of shelves for his office, garage or hobby room.

#5 Dish installation
How much would your dad love to sit back and watch his favourite sport with a DSTV connection? Get a satellite installed for an affordable rate by finding one online at Snupit.

#6 Professional wood and metal preservation
There are several items in and around your house that are slowly wearing away. Your dad knows that metal and wood need to be preserved at least once a year. Hire a painter and let them varnish/rustproof all your solid wood doors, Wendy Houses, gates and bannisters.

#7 Pool treatment
Winter is here, and we all know what that means for swimming pools. Give your dad the opportunity to have the best-looking pool in the neighbourhood by hiring a pool expert for the month of July.

#8 Waterproofing
Another horrible job is tarring the roof. But this needs to be done to prevent leakage. Don’t let your dad sit with this task; hire a professional to do it for him.

#9 A vehicle tracker
Nothing says you love your dad all year round like an affordable vehicle tracking service for his car. Your dad will love the fact that his car is safe from theft no matter where he goes.

#10 A quick getaway
Add an extra treat to your Father’s Day gift by taking him away for the day. Search for nearby guesthouses and treat your dad to a day of breakfast, spa treatments and deep relaxation.
