Treat The Man in Your Life This Fathers’ Day
If you’re still looking for inspiration as to what to get Dad/Hubby/Grandad for Fathers’ Day, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve got some cracking ideas to win over the special men in your life. Slippers, socks and aftershave is nice but if you really want to show them how much you care, you could push the boat out a little this year and really impress them.
Giving the gift of travel is one of the nicest things you can do for someone you love. There’s no price you can put on creating memories with loved ones and treating them to a short break away or an experience day will definitely put a smile on their face.
This week, we take a look at some of the perfect trips and activities you could buy and you could even go along too! Win win!
Is Dad or hubby a music fan? You could send him off to see one of the greatest acts of our generation, Paul Weller. The Modfather himself is playing the O2 next March and you could make a night or a weekend of it with a hotel break and perhaps take in some of the sights of London.
Or, if you fancy sending him away with Mum for a nice overnight or weekend break, you could take advantage of some our top deals from our travel partners? There’s some really good rates around right now.
Perhaps one of the UK’s great cities such as Edinburgh, Cardiff or maybe even Liverpool and if he’s a music or footie fan, there’s plenty to see and do there. Check out a tour of the city’s football giants’ grounds, Anfield or Goodison Park and team it up with a tour of The Beatles Story Experience at the Albert Dock?
Or for something slightly more relaxing and tranquil, why not head for the pretty Lake District? ‘The Lakes’ as it’s affectionately known, lies in the English county of Cumbria and the phrase ‘chill-out’ could have been coined with this dreamy place is mind. If you want to celebrate Fathers’ Day in a tranquil setting, then this is the place for you; just leave all your worries behind and indulge in some serious relaxation. Whether you admire the stunning scenery from a boat on the lake or on dry land, you will understand why this place inspired some of England’s greatest artists, poets and wordsmiths. Take a look at this tempting two-night offer…
If you’re thinking of going a little bit further afield but only have a couple of days to spare, perhaps The Netherlands might appeal to you. We’re not suggesting you go Dutch on cost (you’re supposed to be treating him!) but how about a mini cruise to Amsterdam with DFDS Seaways? This a great way of seeing one of Europe’s most beautiful cities with a relaxing, fun cruise to make it really special. Amsterdam has plenty on offer to help you fill your free time in the city – culture, art and history on just about every corner as well some fantastic bars and restaurants where you can enjoy a nice cold beer with your old man!
Now, what man doesn’t like fast cars? Another great gift idea (and one he’s not likely to forget in a hurry) is a trip to Silverstone. There are great packages offering accommodation and general admission tickets for The British Grand Prix– one of the finest races in the F1 calendar. We think you’ll be onto a winner with that!
Whatever you choose to give this year, it doesn’t matter whether it cost £5 or £500, it’s the thought that really counts at the end of the day but if you want to be number 1 in their books – we reckon any of these ideas might just propel you to top of the favourites list.
Have a happy Fathers’ Day with your menfolk and we should always appreciate everything they do for us.
We’re raising a glass to all the Dads out there.
