With Father’s Day fast approaching, you’re sure to be looking for gift ideas to treat your dad and thank him for everything he does for you throughout the year.
Forget the standard socks, mug or aftershave and treat your dad to something really special this year with our Father’s Day activity ideas. Whatever your dad likes to do in his spare time, there’s sure to be something he’ll enjoy.
Relaxing gifts for dads
If your dad is a fan of fishing, organise a fishing trip to treat him. You’ll be able to head out into the great outdoors and spend some quality time together as you wait for that tell-tale tug on your fishing line.
Add an element of competition to your trip and see who can catch the largest fish, or who ends up with the most fish at the end of your trip. If night fishing is your dad’s favourite, pack a tent and extend your fishing trip overnight – he’s sure to appreciate the time you’ll get to spend together.
A gift for adrenaline junkie dads
For dads who aspire to be just like Lewis Hamilton, why not book a day at your local race track? Surprise your dad with an additional treat that will make his day with a race track experience in a supercar. You and your dad can take to the track in style for a day neither of you will forget.
If a supercar blows the budget this Father’s Day, head to your local go-kart track and race each other to your hearts’ content – who will be crowned king of the karts?
If budget is no issue, why not show your dad how much he means to you with a private helicopter tour down the Thames. Seeing the sights and famous landmarks of our capital from the sky, this is truly a once in a lifetime experience that both you and your dad will be talking about for years to come. There are various routes and packages available, some of which offer private use of the helicopter.
For the ultimate treat for your dad, enjoy a celebratory glass of champagne at our heliport before you fly.
A trip to a theme park will make for an adrenaline filled Father’s Day as you and your dad take on the roller coasters. See who can master the shooting range and who will end up taking home the giant cuddly toy!
After the helicopter tour or adrenaline kick, whatever your dad’s preferred tipple, a tasting day is sure to go down a treat. From craft beer to wine and artisan gin, you’ll be spoilt for choice. To remember the day, why not treat your dad to some of his favourites to enjoy at home.
Gifts for a sporty dad
Extend the fun of Father’s Day and treat your dad to tickets to a sporting event of his choice. Whether he’s a fan of football, loves boxing or likes nothing more than watching a rugby match, your dad can enjoy a day out supporting his favourite team.
You could even treat your dad to a season ticket for his favourite team for a really memorable gift.
If classic cars are close to your dad’s heart, take him to a car show to celebrate Father’s Day. He can admire the vintage classics in all their glory and maybe even relive memories of his own first car.
Gifts for a cultured dad
If your dad loves to discover new music or he wants to see one of his old favourites take to the stage, tickets to a concert make the ideal gift for Father’s Day.
Brush up your cooking skills and treat your dad at the same time with a cooking class. From haute cuisine to cakes and bakes, you’re sure to find something you’ll both enjoy and you’ll also be able to show off your skills once you get home.
