It’s one of our favourite times of year – a chance to clap Dad on the back and thank him for all that he does for us! Whether your Father’s Day plans include a trip to the sea for some good old fish and chips or a wander down to the pub to sip a few pints of ale, it’s always nice to gift your hardworking Dad with something utterly unique and interesting gifts on this annual day of thanks.
Forget the ties this year – here are three fantastic gift ideas for your Dad this Father’s Day:
A chance to brew his own beer: Craft beer is making a huge comeback all over the UK, and while some would argue that it never left, there is no denying the trendiness of U-Brew beer breweries popping up all over the country. Our favourite is UBrew – located in the railway arches of the Bermondsey Beer Mile in Southeast London. They have dozens of choices to choose from, myriad pricing levels and the friendly staff will always be happy to help your dear old dad determine if he fancies a porter, an IPA or asaison this summer.
A photo like no other: Your father’s finest creation? You, of course! Give him the best gift a child can give a parent this Father’s Day and jazz up a picture of yourself, a beloved pet or even a photo of your Dad celebrating a happy moment. Pictures in frames are lovely, but new technologies allow photo studios to really kick things up a notch and present photos in an entirely new way. InCrystals is one such company that will etch your favourite photographs onto beautiful crystal blocks in a 3D effect. Any father would love to see this on his desk, mantle piece or even out in the tool shed – a brilliant reminder of his favourite person – you! 3D Crystal gifts are an amazing and unique idea, no matter what time of year.
An interesting Walking Tour: Let’s face it – most dads love history! A stroll through the heritage of your town is a great way to spend some time together with your father while you treat him to a hands on history lesson. Some of our top recommendations are a dark and spooky Jack the Ripper tour through the East End of London, a phenomenal walk into the history of Viking York or a Foodies walking tour through Edinburgh or London.
No matter what gift you choose for your beloved Dad, just the very act of letting him know that you love him and want him to enjoy his day is truly the best gift you can ever give him.
