“A father is the one friend upon whom we can always rely.”

Emile Gaboriau

From carrying us on their shoulders when our little legs couldn’t take us any further, to teaching us to ride a bike, and talking us through our first car, our Dad’s will always be our Hero.  And with Father’s Day approaching on Sunday 18th June we have put together for you a list of Father’s Day gift ideas, and suggestions of fun things to do on the day as Dad’s do a lot for us and deserve to be treated. 

Book an experience from Red Letter Days and try something new together, or send Dad off for some time to himself. With  Drinks & Dining vouchers, Attractions and tours, Adventure and Short break vouchers there is something for everyone. Vouchers start at around £20 and by purchasing via us you will raise a 5% donation for your chosen cause.

Why not treat Dad to a sentimental gift that he can cherish forever? Head over to Photobox where you can make a personalised Mug, Coasters, Fridge Magnets, a Jigsaw puzzle, or a lovely photo book with all your favourite photos with Dad. On top of that by purchasing via us you’ll raise a 3% donation for your chosen cause.

They have an array of gifts from personalised chocolate bars starting at £3.60, to chocolate and sweet bundles and hampers. You can even create your own!

Treat Dad to the Full Skincare Suite which includes everything he’ll need. Purchasing via us will raise a 5% donation for your chosen cause.

Looking for something a little bit different but practical? Not On The High Street has always been my go to for Father’s Day gifts that I know they won’t already have. Check out this personalised sofa coaster phone stand £29.95, an ideal gift for Dad to use when relaxing. You can raise up to a 2.5% donation to a charity of your choice when you purchase via us.

A simple sports t-shirt is a wardrobe staple. It’s light and comfortable and can be worn with various outfits. It’s a gift which will always be well received. JD Sports have lots of choice and offers on tshirts, and you can raise up to a 3% donation for the charity of your choice if you purchase via us.

A really cool and exciting gift to get Dad is a kit to trace his DNA.

Get the kit from Living DNA via us and raise a 3.5% donation for your chosen cause.

Haven’t yet planned what to do on the day? Whatever you do your Dad will love it, because you chose it. But if you’re stuck here are some ideas we’ve put together.

Cook his favourite meal – It is well known that the way to any man’s heart is through his stomach, so you’re sure to give him the best Father’s Day treat if you have him over for dinner and cook his favourite meal. After dessert you could get out some of your favourite photos over the years and reminisce. If you’ve ordered a photobook this is a perfect opportunity to give it to him and look through it together.

Sharing his hobby for the day – Get Dad to write down his hobbies on pieces of paper, fold up and pop in a jar. Get him to pick one of the pieces of paper out and that is the hobby that you will do with him on the day. A great way to bond together and you may get to try out something new!

Breakfast in bed – If your children want to do something extra special for their Dad then breakfast in bed will always go down well. Get the children involved in making and presenting it, they could draw some nice pictures to present to him with the breakfast.

Book a meal at his favourite restaurant – Many restaurants offer Father’s Day deals, just be sure to pre book as they get very busy. This is a great way to both relax and catch up.
