A Father's Day Gift Guide
As someone who's a fan of celebrating, it fits that I love Mother's Day and Father's Day. It's so nice to have a chance to celebrate our parents and to take a moment to thank them for their love and support. We live at the other end of the country to our parents but we always make sure to get a nice gift and a card to them, and call to wish them a happy day too.
Buying gifts is one of my favourite things to do, so I thought I'd put together a quick gift guide for Father's Day in case you're still seeking some inspiration! I actually find our fathers easier to buy gifts for than our mothers, so this was a real delight to put together.
1. Tickets for events can make a lovely gift, particularly as they can often give the gift of time and shared experiences. Whether it's football or tennis, music or cricket, darts or rugby, there are so many great events for fathers who like sport, music or culture.
2. A boxset* of a favourite show is often a great choice - we have lots of boxsets and love them in the winter for long, dark evenings.
3. If you're lucky enough to spend time with your father on the day itself, a homemade cake or a homecooked meal can be wonderful.
4. A bit of a go-to for boy gifts has to be ties or cufflinks. I love the cute ones you can find everywhere, from etsy to House of Fraser!
5. Books are a great gift (always). I'm loving this biography* of Alexander Hamilton at the moment, and there are some other great, dad friendly reads on the market just now. Brian Blessed*, anyone?
6. It's peak gardening season and there are so many gifts available for the green-fingered.
7. If your father likes a tipple, that can make a great gift. I especially love the selections at Fortnum & Mason, such a festive way to say thank you.
I hope this has given you some inspiration for your Father's Day celebrations.
