3. Dad wants… the personal touch
Dads with young kids are bound to appreciate the effort that goes into making something special. And if you want a gift for your own dad, why not frame an old photograph of the two of you together – such as a childhood holiday snap.
4. Dad wants… an adrenaline rush
No matter how old he is, chances are dad has a few unfulfilled ambitions left inside him – whether it’s to be James Bond for a day or drive a racing car. Several companies now pride themselves on being able to find the perfect gift. Take your pick from a day at a spy academy, a pleasure flight over London or an indoor bungee jump.
5. Dad wants… a family gathering
Maybe the best way to show your dad or partner how much you care on Father’s Day is to organise a family party. It doesn’t have to be a huge affair: a low-key summer barbecue will give him the chance to show off his culinary skills to the people who matter most. Alternatively, what dad would turn down the chance of an all-the-trimmings Sunday dinner – be it at home or in a restaurant? So why not start ringing or emailing round now to check that everyone’s free on the day?
