The most valuable gift to many a dad isn't something materialistic — it's time spent with his family. While coveted quality time is plenty to be thankful for on its own, we love the idea of surprising Dad with one of these Father's Day  experiences come June 15. What would the man in your life do if the choice were entirely up to him? That's for you to answer, but these 13 ideas should get the wheels turning!

A Fishing Trip
Rent a boat for the day, sign up for a fishing excursion, or just take a trip the nearest dock or marina. It's the perfect time of year to be out on the water, and kids and parents alike will appreciate the outing.

A Walk Down Memory Lane
What better day than Father's Day  than to share your family history with the kiddos? Take out old photo albums, scrapbooks, or whatever you have access to, and share stories about dad's younger days, and the family members who came before him.

Hit the Greens
Whether they're old enough to play 18 holes, or putt-putt is a more appropriate speed, packing up the clubs and hitting the greens is a day that most dads will love to share with their lil ones.

Dad's Day Out
Let him call the shots — from morning till bedtime. You may be surprised at what an infrequent occurrence this is, but with kids' busy schedules, and mom often being the one to run the family command center, Father's Day  is a great time to give dad free reign over the family agenda.
