Father’s Day is a relatively modern holiday, so different families have different traditions. Many people make a special effort to visit and spend time with their father or the father figures in their life.

You may want to celebrate Father’s Day by planning an outing or weekend trip, perhaps just for the male members of the family. This may be a simple walk in the countryside or a whole planned “experience”. Popular Father’s Day experiences include driving a fire engine, rally car, tank or even airplane or taking a golf, football or cricket lesson with a celebrity coach.

Or you might prefer to organize a special meal at home, in a pub or restaurant. It could be traditional Father’s Day meal with meat, stuffing, potatoes and vegetables eaten in a pub and accompanied by pints of ale and lager, or a more exotic dinner in your favourite local restaurant.

Besides family gatherings honouring all father figures in a small or extended family, also the giving of gifts may be part of the festivities organized for Father’s Day. These can range from a simple phone call or greetings card to real gifts. Common Father’s Day gifts are ties, socks, underwear, sweaters, slippers and other items of clothing or sporting equipment. Or you may prefer tools for household maintenance, garden work or cooking for the ‘King of the Barbeque’. Luxury food items and drinks are always well-liked gifts by everybody. A selection of artisan, rich cheeses from the British tradition such as Cheddar, Wensleydale, Double Glouceste, and Stilton with wines from France, Italy, Chile and Port packed in a pretty hamper can be a most appreciated Father’s Day gift.

Also a bottle of Champagne is always a welcome gift, especially if it is personalised with a photo and greetings message to make your celebration gift extra special. “The World’s Best Dad”, “For My Father” or just a simple “Dad” on the label are the most popular slogans for our Father’s Day personalised bottles of wine. You can even print a photograph or a picture, maybe of children or grandchildren.

In the days and weeks before Father’s Day, many schools and children’s organizations help their pupils to prepare a handmade card or gift for their father with drawings made by the children. Perhaps you’d like to include your child’s picture with one of the suggested hampers. We can arrange this too, just get in touch and we will do the rest!
