Happy Father's Day

[ "2016-06-17" ]

On Father’s Day we celebrate the dads in our lives.

But beyond the obvious ‘socks, jocks and chocs,' it can be hard to know what he’ll appreciate.

This year, show your Dad how much you care with our alternative gift ideas which he will love. 

Relax, sit back and put your feet up

Relax, sit back and put your feet up

Many Dads are busy looking after the family all year round, whether it’s DIY jobs around the house, working or spending time with the children, this is the perfect opportunity to let your Dad sit back and put his feet up. A peaceful few hours to rest and relax may be just what he's looking for.

Play a tune

Play a tune

Spend the day playing his favourite tunes around the house, or dare to discover new music for him to listen to! If you have a hidden music talent why not play a song for your Dad as his Father’s Day present?

Personalise his favourite book or diary

Personalise his favourite book or diary

Does you dad have a favourite book he reads again and again? Recondition the worn out book cover by re-covering with a jazzy patterned fabric. Alternatively secretly cover his planner, diary or notebook for personal touch.

Cook up a storm

Cook up a storm

Our Dads are usually looking after us, so on Father’s Day turn this on its head and prepare a tasty treat for your dad, cook his favourite meal, bake a cake or simply serve his favourite cheese and wine!

Be creative with wall art

Be creative with wall art

Create an individual piece of artwork for a truly personal gift. For those who aren’t confident with a paint brush or need a quick alternative, cover a canvas in a painterly fabric design. Also you could capture a memory by printing a favourite family snapshot onto a canvas.

Unique gifts

Unique gifts

A piece of wall art with a twist would make a unique and individual gift, especially if your Dad is an arts and crafts enthusiast. This is a super simple and easy handmade gift, which your Dad can treasure.

Sail away, and go on adventure

Sail away, and go on an adventure

We all love to escape the hustle and bustle of day to day life, and what better way to do this than sail away? Whether you take you Dad on an imaginative adventure of playtime with the little ones or organise a surprise boat trip, make sure your Dad is made to feel truly special and loved.

We are wishing a Happy Father’s Day this Sunday to all the dads in this world!
