A week until Father's Day

Can you believe we have just started the 6th month of 2016? We can’t either! Time has flown by and June has arrived, which means Father’s Day is creeping up on us. Now we all know Dad's can be tricky ones to buy for. I can assure you that being stumped on what to get him is a common thought. The perfect place to start is with a card; perhaps something personalised with his name or one that is rather unique to him. Our individually crafted and personalised scrabble cards are the perfect way to tell him how much he means to you. Choose from one of our bespoke designs, or better still we can work with you to create a totally unique card that can be treasured forever. You can choose to have a message printed inside or you can keep it blank you for to handwrite. Need some inspiration? Just simply get in touch.

To make things a little easier for you, we’ve assembled our top picks for all Dad types.

For many fathers they don’t want much or anything at all. And this can be rather frustrating when you want to get that first man in your life something special to show your love for him. Why not keep things simple and get him a few small things he’ll appreciate.

3. Mr Gadget Man

Would you consider your dad to be a techie – showing off his latest gadgets, always ‘needing’ the most up to date features, and always on the scope for all things new in the digital world?

This Father’s Day you can opt to gift him something to do with this interest and buy him a brand new gadget. A power bank allows him to increase the number of hours of fun he ca get from his gadgets on the go. Or splash out and get him an iPad where he can download a countless number of apps that are sure to cater for his every need.

Is your dad a music enthusiast and do you often find him playing his favourite hits from the stereo he has had for the last 15 years? It’s time for that necessary upgrade – a brand new portable speaker allows him to bring his favourite music along with him wherever he goes.

4. Memory Maker

Creating memories that can be cherished for a lifetime is something everyone would appreciate,including dad. Organise a day out for the whole family where you can all relax and enjoy each other’s company. Picnics on the beach or walks in the countryside serve as ideal quality family time which everyone can take time to savour the moments.

Alternatively if you want to tailor a gift to your father’s hobbies and interests, a voucher for anexperience day out can help him live out something on his Bucket List. Has he always wanted to drive a Ferrari or Lamborghini, dine at a Michelin Star restaurant, or ride in a helicopter? Help him achieve a dream of his. Does your papa enjoy all things movies? For a cheaper option you could treat him to a monthly cinema pass so he can enjoy all the latest flicks on the big screen.

5. The Sporty Guy

Is he still very much an active ‘athlete’ or does he just enjoy sitting back with a beer and watching the highlights on TV? You could gift him with tickets to see his favourite sports team play; and why not upgrade to the VIP experience where he can tour the stadium and get the best view of the game.

Or if he prefers to get involved in his beloved sport, adding to his sporting wardrobe and accessories is the perfect gift.
