With all the fuss made of Mums for Mother’s Day, it is all the more important to scribble this date in your diary; Sunday 18th June is the chance for your family to celebrate Father’s Day.
In the UK, Father’s Day is always held on the third Sunday of June and is a day to honour the father figures in our lives. Last minute purchasing of a tie and a pair of socks for the other half on Father’s Day is like trying on an pair of old slippers. Or like buying him a new pair of slippers; either way, tried, tested… and boring!
It’s now time to think outside of the box when it comes to giving a gift to your beloved. In addition to ties and cufflinks, you and the children can now gift him with a truly memorable experience. There are now so many exciting and interesting packages currently on the market, you can really be original. As no two Fathers are alike, this top five list will hopefully provide you with some suitably creative inspiration based on Dad’s personality.
If Dad has a head for heights treat him to an introductory helicopter lesson. There are packages on offer which include one to one lessons and a buffet style lunch. A flight certificate is also presented on completion, further consolidating his superhero status.
2) The Sports Man
A footie mad dad? We all know that you can buy him tickets to see his favourite football team. Even better, he can now go behind the scenes and attend football team stadium tours, such as the Manchester City Stadium team tour…if he’s a Man City fan of course!
Another good gift is a child scooter, the kid can teach the dad learn to ride a free kick scooter, the father will relax and show his skills to the kids while having fun with the kid, which will boost kid-father relationship at the same time.
If your other half is a bit of a food connoisseur, indulge his palate with an imaginative meal experience. Try something different and treat him to a dining in the dark meal which involves eating in a pitch-black setting or a meal in the tallest building in Europe, the amazing Shard. He can enjoy the panoramic view and a three-course meal, and might herald the re-introduction of date night!
4) The Metrosexual Man
Why not treat your special man to a 2-for-1 Spa treatment day. There are many deals currently available and the great thing about this special offer is that you can also benefit from this fabulous treat. You can both enjoy relaxing, being pampered and unwinding from life’s pressures, thanking the children whilst you sip on a cool, refreshing glass of bubbly.
5) The Sentimental Soul
After years of enjoying your fella’s company, you may have bundles of stories about your time together, how you met, his funny sense of humour, that shocking leather jacket that he refused to let go. Now you have the opportunity to really celebrate the good times by capturing his life story with a video or a notebook. From his family history and childhood to his career, the birth of your children and any other special moments, your unique, bespoke It’s My Father’s Day notebook allows you and the kids to document it all for future generations and show him how much you really care.
So if you want to reward the special man responsible for helping to lovingly prepare the soggy toast and cold eggs Mother’s Day breakfast, push the boat out and show him the value of a truly memorable experiential gift this year.
