This year has gone by so quickly! It’s nearly June and with that comes my mums birthday closely followed by Fathers Day. I don’t know what your dad’s like but mine is impossible to shop for. So here are some suggestions of things to get your dad, in the hopes to inspire myself.
My dad’s not really a big accessory guy, unless you include hats. He loves a hat. But he does have a few key pieces that he’s invested in. This includes a vintage watch and some cufflinks. Mens antique jewellery could be a great thoughtful gift if you know what your dad might like, does he need some cufflinks, or a hat pin? Maybe he likes a good ring – if it’s in your budget, it’s a lovely route to go down.
A day out
Gifting your dad an experience for Fathers Day can be really special. Whether you decide to do it on the day, as a family, or gift him something special for him and a +1 it’s a lovely gift. Virgin Experience Days has something for all budgets, so whether you want to gift your dad a track day, a getaway or something to bond you together like an escape room there is something for everyone.
If your dad is in to aircrafts or loves history maybe they’d be interested in a spitfire experience. The experience can take place at Goodwood or Lee on Solent, with various choices of flight length and location.
One thing I can never go wrong with for my dad is some sort of brain teaser or puzzle gift. We’ve bought him countless Sudoku books over the years. More recently I’ve taken to buying him wooden 3d puzzles/brain toys – he is immediately fascinated by any sort of problem that needs solving. It becomes a bit of a family challenge as my sisters and their partners often try to solve the puzzles too.
Make him something
If you want to be more sentimental, or get your dad something more personal, then why not make him something? You could make a memory book filled with family photos, tickets or souvenirs. Or make him a ‘mandle’ with his favourite scent.
