  233. Sophie Roberts

    He’s always put his family first no matter how hard times have been and I’ll always be grateful for that!

  234. Pam Lawrence

    My own father died in 1989. My favourite thing about him was his honesty – he didn’t do subtle, was never diplomatic, and could hurt with his words. But there was a sort of innocence about his honesty which i could admire, and at least you always knew where you were with him. My favourite thing about my Pa-in-law (who would be the very lucky and happy recipient should i win!) is that he is not my father.

  235. Sophie Grayling

    This is a perfect Father’s Day gift

  236. Tracy Newton

    My dad brought me up on his own, after my mam died when I was really young. There was not much, if any, help for single fathers in the 70’s. He is a great help with my son. Although he does eat all the kids sweets, get all the toys out, wind them up. Then go home when it is tidy time

  237. Martha Chisholm

    My father always loved to try something new. Although he’s no longer with us he would have loved the opportunity to try everything in this hamper. He believed there was no such thing as ‘I don’t like’ if you’ve never tried it..!

  238. Cheron Titus

    My dad cooks, cleans, builds, supports and is the funniest comedian in our family x

  239. Liam Fitzpatrick

    Fun fact about my dad, he loves Jameson’s Whiskey so much he ended up getting a bottle of it tattooed on his arm. I would like to give him this hamper as I’ve never bothered with Father’s day!

  240. My Father would laugh himself silly if he had this hamper, more than likely raise a glass to all who entered!

  241. Dragonfly63

    My husband is a great father, guiding, correcting and encouraging his adult children as needed. Consequently both my children, my daughter in law and my small granddaughter adore him. because he is so giving he rarely has time to do things for himself and as this contains all his favourite thigs it would be a wonderful reward, thanks.

  242. Georgia H

    My dad is the king of dad jokes, especially after a few beers

  244. Natalie White

    My Dad would love the spicy sesame peanuts the most, although loads of his fav things are in this hamper! The best thing about my Dad is his daft sense of humour – he always makes me laugh 🙂

  251. Julia Nicholls

    My Dad is respected by everyone who knows him, and loved by his family for his generosity and love. He would enjoy this hamper as he never buys himself treats.

  252. Debbie C

    The ale would certainly perk up my 89 year old dad 🙂

  253. Libby Alexander

    There are so many wonderful things about my Dad. I don’t want to turn this into a sob story but I have brought my daughter up as a single parent – and he has been the male figure in her life. He does all my DIY, helps me with shopping, driving etc…. and has just renovated my garden for me, as I haven’t been able to leave my house in years and he thought it may help, by being an incentive for me to go out there. He has worked so hard. He really is my hero (apart from his jokes). He always shares whatever he has, so he deserves a treat, just for himself.

  254. Taught me much about life and the universe and being an adult, father figures are very important!

  263. iain maciver

    he was one in a million sadly no longer with us but in his memory he would have loved this a deserved it too


    My dad has always looked after us when we were young and we never went without. He’s not in good health nowadays, but loves his ale and his tobacco. He is very wise and doesnt say a lot, and still has a good brain on him. I love him for his morals, he is old school as they say, and hes my dad.

  265. Angela Treadway

    that he is always there for me, no matter what things are happening in his life or how hard things are for him and he has been a big support in my life x

  266. Stewart Smith-Langridge

    my dad is proud of his family and loyal to his wife of 65 years

  267. Miss Tracy Hanson

    I could have gone down the “generic answer”, but kept it unique to my Dad instead.

    The fact that he will go anywhere, and any time of the day. Even if he gets lost 3/4 times he always arrives with a smile on his face.

  268. Favourite thing about my dad would have to be his dreadful sense of humour!! He makes terrible jokes and thinks he’s hilarious! Wouldn’t have him any other way though, as he can always make people laugh! I think he would like the shortbread and the Belgian chocolates the best!

  269. Tracy Nixon

    My dad is fun and entertaining when he is with any or all of his 12 young grandchildren so he deserves a few treats!

He is super proud of both me and my brother at what we have achieved in life and you can see that sparkle and twinkle in his eyes at how proud he is. He is there for me when I need him without hesitation and people love him! When I was a child he worked hard to take me and my brother on our first holiday as I asked if we could go on an airplane and he made my dream come true! He taught me skills i would need later in life such as painting & decorating, gardening and simple things like how to change batteries in a remote control. Everything he has taught me has been useful for me to live independently as an adult and I thank him so much for this. Big cheers to my fabulous dad!
