Let’s celebrate all Dads!

Jun 15, 2020

Fathers Day

We understand that days like Father’s Day can be difficult for many, and this year even more so. Our sympathies are with anyone who has lost a loved one at any time.

So, come Sunday 21st June 2020 we would like to encourage a bit of a celebration of all Dads, whether they are here or have sadly passed on.

Take a trip down memory lane

With a little bit more lockdown time on our hands, perhaps a trip down memory lane would be a nice idea? How about digging out some old family photos to reminisce over zoom, or to show your kids some of their distant relations? And if you spot a classic why not turn it into a Father’s Day gift, mounted in a frame or as a printed keepsake?  For photo gift ideas why not head to The Works or WHSmiths to re-create that special family album.

Sports mad Dad?

Maybe your Dad or Grandad has a favourite sport or hobby? As Sports Direct are currently offering 20% off all full price items until midnight on 18th June (using code SUMMER20) you can have a good look around for inspiration. WHSmith also has the latest award-winning sport biographies, such as Tyson Fury’s ‘Behind the Mask: My Autobiography’ – search for his sporting hero here. If you are remembering something your Dad used to love, and passing skills down the family, look no further for inspiration on popular hobbies than The Works

Make sure he puts his feet up

Most importantly, if Sunday is usually set aside for Dad chores, you know, cleaning the car, mowing the lawn (in which case, check out the latest gardening equipment at Wilko then make sure he puts his feet up with a cuppa and his favourite “dunking” biscuit as he sits and admires his annual Fathers’ Day socks!
