With Father’s Day taking place in the UK on Sunday 16th June 2013, we’ve been busy hunting down the latest offers on everything from cards to once-in-a-lifetime activity gifts.
Getting the right Father’s Day card
There’s always a mass of cards on sale about a month before Father’s Day and it’s often a case of trying to find one you haven’t bought a previous year. Try something different in 2013 with a unique personalised card – you get to pick the image and then add your own text and they don’t tend to cost any more than the standard versions. Marks & Spencer Personalised
is currently running a promotion with 50p off when you order online. There’s over 250 designs to choose from, varying from Del Boy classics to Buzz Lightyear.
Gift ideas for footie-mad dads
If you’re dad is a huge football fan the chances are you’ve already bought him the latest team shirt or scarf for Christmas and he has an extensive collection of chipped mugs in the cupboard, charting the team’s success. Has he ever been to Wembley though? If not then this could be the ultimate gift, as Buyagift
is offering a tour of the stadium in 2013 for just £17.50, saving £15.50 in the standard price. What’s even better is that this is for two tickets, so you can go with your dad and treat yourself at the same time. During the Wembley Stadium Tour you and your dad will be able to see the infamous England changing rooms, check out the dugouts and then top it off with a visit to the Royal Box, which contains a replica FA Cup. It’s guaranteed not to disappoint and will make your dad the envy of his mates until the next Father’s Day!
