Happy Father’s Day! (Competition)


Thanks to COVID-19, this year dads everywhere are bracing themselves for Father’s Day gifts that will be…interesting.

Will it be a slap-dash super-market purchase, a garden-centre bag of compost or a homemade attempt at fine-dining in the back yard?

One thing is certain – they won’t be expecting a pub meal or a big surprise bash at the local rugby club. And, unless you share a household with your dad, you aren’t even going to be able to give them a hug!

So, how can we best all show our appreciation for our dads?

Father's day ideas to make your dad smile

  • Home-made father’s day cards are the best
  • Bake a cake and drop it round for them to enjoy.
  • Buy them a hobby – try a home-brewing kit, or some interesting garden plants that they will enjoy for weeks to come
  • Treat them to an online course: language lessons, golf-improvement, or photography.
  • If he has chocaholic tendencies, then send him a gigantic 750g Toblerone –launched just in time for Father’s Day!
  • Buy them some Kindle books and send them to their device as a surprise on the day
  • Send them a “promise voucher” for future work that you’re offering – like cutting the grass, cleaning the house, a week’s worth of ironing, or even offering a hand with cooking Christmas dinner this year!
  • If you can’t be with them – make them a photo collage of you together. (You could use a promise-voucher to frame it for them when the shops are open again)
