Father's Day Ideas

Posted on May 19, 2015 by Admin

Father's Day is just a month away, and we think dads deserve something extra special this year. So for the funny dads, the hard-working dads, the sporty dads and the laid-back dads, we've got some great little Father’s Day ideas to turn him into a happy dad!

Techno gifts – from the latest smartphone to a new tablet, some ultra-cool headphones to a remote controlled helicopter, there’s plenty of technology out there that fathers all over the country are itching to get their hands on. Maybe dad has been talking about getting a new sound system? Maybe he wants to fly high with a new mini drone? This is the time to think outside the box!

Sweets and treats – every father has a favourite food. Whether it’s a delicious meal in his favourite restaurant or a type of chocolates he really loves, a foodie treat is guaranteed to delight. And if you want your gift to keep on giving, there are so many companies within the food industry who offer gift cards or membership cards.

Go homemade – a lovely idea for all ages, a homemade gift truly proves that the thought really does count…and there are unlimited ideas to choose from. Homemade meals, a photo collage, photo frames, we could go on!

All about style – more than one of us could say that we’d buy better clothes than our dad does, and here’s the opportunity! We’re sure dads everywhere have had enough to the ‘Best Dad Ever’ t-shirts, so why not head to his favourite store and pick out some new threads? Jeans, jumpers and even shoes, there’s a lot to choose from when it comes to clothing and accessories – but don’t forget to check sizes before you buy!

Give an experience – not a fan of material gifts? Give the gift of memories with an experience break or an activity day. There are a number of fantastic venues out there that offer something different, such as track days, stadium tours, high ropes courses, survival training days, chocolate making and much more.

Thirsty work – much like favourite food, most of us have a favourite drink as well…and dads are no exception. Whether he likes a brew after a hard day’s work or likes to sit back and watch TV with a glass of well-aged whisky, a bottle of his favourite tipple is sure to put a smile on his face.

Keep dad entertained – does he prefer comedies or thrillers? Action-packed hits or mysterious horror stories? Father’s Day could be jam-packed with blockbuster hits if your gift this year is his favourite film or TV series. And if he’s the gaming type then the two of you can play the day away on his favourite console.

Give him the choice – sometimes our fathers can be picky and it can be hard to narrow your options down. So why not let him choose? Many high-street stores and smaller shops offer gift cards, meaning he can get exactly what he wants.

A great little gift - every dad deserves a break away every so often, so why not book a summer getaway for father’s day? From country retreats to gourmet dining stays, we have a whole host of options for you to choose from. Visit to browse our full range of collections today.
