Father’s Day is celebrated on the third Sunday of June in Mexico and Latin America.. On this date it is customary to celebrate our parents for the hard work and affection that their work implies within paternity.
To pamper them, Mexican families, companies, schools and institutions plan various activities that include lunches, dinners; Going out to the movies, theater, concert, bar and, of course, some symbolic or useful detail.
If you don’t know what to give this Father’s Day, we leave you five options to expand your possibilities, although we remind you that the best way to honor your father is to give him love, hugs and calls (especially if you no longer live with him).
1. Unusual perfume
An infallible gift that will give presence wherever you go. You can choose the scent based on your personality, age, or even workplace. We leave you some options of Nature, which you can smell in any of its eight physical branches (seven in the metropolitan area and one in Querétaro).
- Natura Homem Neo — $877 Mexican pesos: With an elegant aroma, the essence of this perfume balances the intensity and comfort of the Cashmeran notes that at the same time merge with wood and the brightness of the Pataqueira

- Kaiak Adventure — $688 Mexican pesos: A fragrance, which, as its name says, is for the man who is constantly on the move. Fresh, innovative aroma and ideal for hot climates
2. Car insurance
This is a great gift to give your dad security of daily life, since the car is used constantly for short or long distances, almost every day, when he is on his way to the office or when he drives on a family trip in road.
A great option, since it is important to have the necessary means and care for ourselves, our loved ones and, in this case, material things. The price range can vary from 1,500 to 3 thousand pesos.
3. Dinner with Asian cuisine
The gastronomic offer of Mexico is impressive. But if this time you want to surprise your father with gastronomy ‘from the other side of the world’, you can invite him to PF Changs, the largest chain of casual Chinese food restaurants in the United States.
The company recently expanded its offering with dishes from across the Asian continent. Pad Thai, for example, is a typical Thai dish, made up of rice, egg, tofu and vegetable noodles; decorated with peanuts, cilantro and lemon with Pad Thai sauce. Safety pin!

4. Retirement Fund
This fund is important for when dad is close to retirement and can live comfortably, at ease and free to do what he wants and enjoy a lifetime of work after having provided all the necessary care in the family.
5. Medical insurance
This is a great option to insure against any change in the body, illness, accident or surgical intervention, when necessary, since growing up and accepting the changes within our body is inevitable. And with this insurance you assure dad personalized medical care without putting finances at risk and providing more family time.
Why is Father’s Day celebrated on the third Sunday of June?
In 1910, a woman named Sonora Smart Dodd was listening to a sermon one day on Mother’s Day and felt that the work of parents was not equally recognized. She was particularly fond of her father because her father, Civil War veteran William Jackson Smart, raised her and her five siblings alone.
Smart Dodd approached the Spokane Ministerial Alliance, his hometown, and suggested his own father’s birthday, June 5, for the celebration. The Alliance chose the third Sunday in June. To know more:
The celebration was made official in 1966 by US President Lyndon B. Johnson and from there the celebration spread throughout much of the world.
