This June we ran a Father’s Day competition – and we had such a lovely lot of responses we wanted to share them.
We had over 700 entries to our competition held on the Hampergifts blog, and three winners were selected at random. It was absolutely lovely and very moving to read all the comments the competition entrants left about their Dads and Grandfathers or their partners and fathers of their children and “fur babies”!
Our favourite comments
We received lots of lovely comments, and we’d like to share a few of them with you here:
Gemma M: My dad is such a treasure because he fills my life with laughter
Deborah B: My dad is fab because he is the best granddad anyone could ask for to my little boy he takes him out every Sunday and they have a great relationship!
Hazel Y: Despite my mum being in a care home in the last stages of early on-set dementia and having to look after my ill / disabled brother, my dad is still there for friends and family no matter what the issue is or what the time is. He is selfless and freely giving of his time and labours and full of humour. Seeing him always makes me smile and feel how lucky I am to have such a wonderful, wonderful dad.
Joy G: My Dad has had a tough one this year, but is still smiling, laughing and playing the fool! I’m so proud of him for finding a new job so quickly after his old workplace closed. Although its hard work for him now he has to commute, he still has time for his wife, kids and granddaughter. I love him lots xx
Claire C: We will be baking some cakes from ‘bump’ to ‘daddy’
Kirsty G: My dad is worth his weight in gold – he and my mum taught me how to have a great marriage xx
Katherine T: I have a ‘second hand Dad’ who has put up with me since I was about 14. My brother and I were very damaged children who’d had a rough time of it and he has been the best Dad we could ever have hoped for. He is now the best Granfer my children could ever hope for as well!
Such lovely tributes and comments to read, there was not a dry eye in the Hampergifts house. Wish we could have sent out a hamper to everyone!
Deborah B, who was one of our winners, said this about her prize, “The Continental Beer Hamper was fantastic. Really well presented with a good selection of items inside. My dad was delighted with it! These are a really good idea to give as a gift to people who have everything, like my dad, I always struggle with what to buy him.”
Hazel Y, whose Dad enjoyed a bit of sunshine along with his beer, had this to say, “So thrilled to have won a lovely little treat for my wonderful, hard-working and ever-patient father. Here’s to you Daddy! And thank you Hampergifts for helping me spoil him.”
Our next competition…
