It’s claimed that the very first Father’s Day was over 4,000 years ago, as archaeologists claim to have found a 4,000 year old piece of clay with carvings with a message similar to many modern Father’s Day cards, while the modern movement was started in the USA in 1910 by Sonora Louise Smart Dodd, who couldn’t understand why there was a day for mothers, but not for fathers.
Fathers back then, whether it be 4,000 years ago or 1910, have a lot in common with our fathers nowadays, and that means that some of the gifts are most likely very similar! Here are some of our suggestions for your dad this year:
Which kind of dad doesn’t love a bit of a drink every now and again? Whether he is a beer man, prefers his spirits, or if a more sophisticated wine is his tipple, a high quality alcohol is often one of his favourite accompaniments on a Saturday night. This luxury wine pack is ideal for any father, containing a bottle of luxurious Rioja Marqués de Murrieta red wine, a bottle stopper, cork screw and decanting set, so that he can have all the utensils he needs to enjoy his rich wine in the most stylish way possible.
Is there a father anywhere on this planet that doesn’t insist on having full control of the BBQ? With summer finally here, it’s time to take advantage of the good weather and enjoy some great meals outside in the great company of friends and family. Dads always take control, but then if something goes wrong, it’s never their fault! Get them a BBQ utensils kit and they certainly won’t be able to complain for a while with this Father’s Day gift!
Eau de toilette’s and aftershaves are always a great gift for the fashionable father, particularly as a Father’s Day gift. Smelling good is vital for any man, and a good eau de toilette is a cast iron guarantee to catch the attention. With hints of herbs, incense and white musk, experts say that the 212 Men fragrance by Carolina Herrera is symbolic of the modern man, constantly on the move and dynamic in his style. Sound like the perfect fragrance for your dad? Well you can find it here!
With Euro 2016 underway and a host of other sporting and musical events set to take place over the summer, a gift for dad doesn’t necessarily have to be big and bulky! The hunt for Father’s Day gifts really couldn’t come at a better time, and while tickets for the big events may not come cheap, your pa might be deserving of an extra special treat this year! If he isn’t a fan of sports or music, then there is always the opportunity to send him travelling or get him the chance to experience something that he wouldn’t usually do, like sport car racing or a visit to the top of the Shard in London.
Tie and socks
The go to gift for any man when you just can’t think what he wants, socks or a tie! Your dad is no different, so why not mix things up a bit and get him a “funny” tie, or maybe just something a bit more stylish than he has already got? After all, those socks that you got him for Christmas have come in useful, so why wouldn’t he want some more?!
