Our Top 9 Tips For a Fab Father’s Day

fathers day gifts

1) Let dad have a nice long lie-in, without making him feel guilty that it’s 10:30 am and he’s still in bed. For one day at least, we’ll allow it!

2) Still in bed? Why not bring him breakfast, made by yourself and the newspaper while you are at it.

3) Give him a card and a present while he is enjoying his brekkie. If you are still stuck for inspiration, then we have a lovely Father’s Day gift page, where you will be able to find a whole load of gorgeous goodies.

4) Are you the artistic or wordy type? Why not create his card yourself? You could even write him a little poem or letter, saying how much you love him and what he means to you. The sentimental types will LOVE this and you might even get a few happy tears.

5) While he is getting up and dressed, why not wash his car? Make it all shiny and sparkling when he sees it. It will make a great surprise!

6) Plan a fun day out. Figure out what he likes to do best and plan a day centred around it. Fan of the footie? Book tickets to a match or grab a ball and go for a kick-about in the park. Dad’s a foodie? Take him out for a slap-up lunch.

7) Spend the day as a family. It’s not always easy to dedicate a whole day to the entire day, but do it for him.

8) Cook him an amazing dinner when the day is done. Plan the meal ahead by asking what his perfect dinner would be.

9) Above all else, tell him that you love him.
