The perfect Father’s Day gift
Gin tasting, a trip to the barber’s or an exhilarating ride on a speedboat. Make Father’s Day extra special this year with our brilliant gift ideas.
Father’s Day is often slightly overshadowed by Mother’s Day although our dads, papas and fathers are equally important in our lives. Whether you’re a father yourself or planning on spending the day with the old man, make sure you get outdoors. Adventure beckons! Fill a cool box with sandwiches and beer and head off together. We quizzed our Editorial staff on their top tips for a great day. Here’s what they told us.
Vodka tasting, beer tasting – what could beat an evening with your mates and all your dads in a good bar? It’s the deluxe version of your usual lads’ night out. Round off the night with a few Cuban cigars and the cliché is complete. What happens in Vegas...
When did you and your dad last hit the barber’s together? Probably when you were knee-high to a grasshopper. Or maybe you’ve never been at all. Treat you and your dad to a classic wet shave before heading to your favourite beer garden for a pint.
We’ve all heard of cooking courses. But did you know you can also enrol in a BBQ academy in most big cities? Book a course and learn how to grill the perfect ribs, steaks and sausages. And there’s sure to be ample time to discuss the age-old matter of whether charcoal or gas is best.
If you usually end up watching rom-coms with your partner or cartoons with your kids, a trip to the cinema with your dad promises more excitement. Choose an action movie or thriller, book tickets for the late night show and stock up on nachos with jalapenos and cheese beforehand. Some movie theatres even allow beer. Cheers!
Find out if there’s an escape room in your town. Book a session with your dad, your friends and their dads, and then work together to free your team. Head for pizza to refuel afterwards.
Leave the hatchback or hybrid at home and hire a speedboat instead! While the captain expertly navigates your local lake or river, you can crack open a beer and wonder how life got this good. PS: probably best to leave mum at home for this one.
