Fathers Day treats

June 12th, 2012


This Sunday sees Fathers Day, officially the most difficult gift buying day of the year. I ask my dad what he would like for Father’s Day every year and get the same answer, ‘I don’t want anything, I don’t need anything’, which is frankly no help whatsoever. I have gifted a barbecue, old fashioned shaving bowl and soap, a small greenhouse, and numerous football tops, and now find myself running out of ideas for something to spoil, amuse or simply make the old man smile!

If you’re having the same problem – fear not. Here are some great ideas for gifts if your heart belongs to Daddy, because they might be able to write moaner on their passport under occupation, but you still wouldn’t be without them, or change them in any way.

  1. Thanks for these tips, agreed that Arthur Price is an amazing brand for special occasions like Father’s Day.

    Also, you can’t go wrong with giving designer cutlery brands such as Sant Andrea for presents either, it’s cheaper in the summer – perfect for father’s day and weddings.
