It’s Father’s Day here in the UK on June 18th. It can be notoriously difficult to find the perfect present for Father’s Day, as dads are sometimes so hard to buy for! However, with the date rapidly approaching, you’ll want to pick out the perfect gift that you know he’s going to love.
Here are some ideas that are a little bit different, and some that you might not have considered just yet when thinking what to get for your dad this Father’s Day:
Gig tickets – is your dad a huge music lover? Goes he have shelves full of records or a favourite band that he’s absolutely devoted to? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then a pair of tickets to see some great music played live would be an excellent choice for his father’s day gift.
A great day out – staying with the theme of a ‘gift of an experience’, it may well be worth considering arranging a unique day out for your father. It could be something as simple as heading out for a meal at his favourite restaurant. Or it could be an all out experience day zipping around a racetrack in an Aston Martin or a trip in a hot air balloon!
Monthly subscriptions – the great thing about a monthly subscription is that it is like giving a series of gifts throughout the whole year. If your dad loves real ale, there are some amazing monthly gift boxes that will deliver the best new ales to his door every month. For a non-alcohol related alternative, a year’s subscription to his favourite magazine or newspaper could be a great option for him.
Get personal – there are a wealth of affordable personalised gift ideas that would really make his day. If your father is always writing away in a journal, then a beautifully monogrammed leather-bound notebook would be both useful and tasteful. A stylish piece of jewellery, such as a watch or a pair of cufflinks, can be engraved with a thoughtful message that your father will see every time he wears the present you’ve given him.
Foodie gifts – it’s a truth universally known that dad’s adore their gadgets! If your dad loves to get creative in the kitchen, or always takes over the BBQ, then culinary gadgets are an excellent choice this Father’s Day. A fancy new coffee machine or the latest frying device will help level up his gastronomic game.
Hopefully the ideas outlined above have given you a flash of inspiration for a wonderfully unique gift to give to your dad this Father’s Day. Chances are, he will love whatever you get for him, and here’s wishing you both a lovely Father’s Day together.
