Father’s Day Gift Ideas with a Difference

Dads deserve a little bit of spoiling on Father’s Day if you ask us. Whether you’re near or far to your dear dad, why not give him a memorable and special gift this year? Here are a few gifts that we think would make Dads smile, and are about spending time together – giving the gift of your valuable time.

Foodie Dads

Why not treat your dad to a lovely meal, or take him on a truly memorable foodie experience? Something like the Ginger Pig’s butchery course would be a great experience for any meat-loving man. Or, prepare a picnic with plenty of your Dad’s favourite foodie luxuries for a real treat.

Beer loving Dads

There’s so much more to making beer than most of us realise. There are tons of breweries all over the UK, so why not take your Dad on a tour of your local brewery and enjoy a few cheeky snifters while tasting the varieties of amber nectar. You can find details of your nearest brewery on this interactive map.

Wine connoisseur Dads

Do you think a vineyard tour would mean the hassle of getting on a ferry to France or a flight to Europe? Not so! Check out these English wine tasting tours, right here on our very own home turf of Hampshire and the South Downs. If a weekend away is a bit of a stretch, how about getting a selection of fine wines and doing your own tasting at home? You can download some wine tasting tips and tricks from the net and have a laugh thinking up the most obscure flavour descriptions.

Green-fingered Fathers

Take a tour of a local garden together, or lend a hand and volunteer to help with a few jobs around your Dad’s garden for an afternoon. He’ll appreciate the help, and this is a nice way to get the whole family involved, particularly if there are any grandchildren around.

Sporty Dads

Sport enthusiast fathers always appreciate a heated debate over the latest goings-on in their chosen sport. Even if you’re not a sports fan, join in by going on a day out together to watch the rugby, or play a round of golf (even crazy golf). If the weather’s fair, take a picnic lunch to enjoy once all the action’s over.

Giving the gift of time

Spending time with your dad doing something he’s interested in will create a fun and memorable day out for Father’s Day. Whether it’s cooking him a delicious meal, going to a classic car show, or getting his research into the family tree beautifully framed (and listening to the stories he’s got to tell), time together is something to be treasured for both us and our dear Dads.

Our customers often tell us they find buying gifts for men incredibly tricky. At Hampergifts we’re passionate about giving our customers a great range of hampers to choose from, so you’ll be sure to find one that’s just right.

A lot of our customers live overseas, and I’m sure would love to be able to spend more time with their Fathers, not just on Father’s Day. Whether you’re close by, or far away, a luxury hamper makes a great gift, and there are plenty of different hampers to choose from for your own special Dad.
