Father’s Day: Unusual Gifts Dads will Love

Father’s Day: Unusual Gifts Dads will Love

With Father’s Day coming up on the 19th June 2016, you may find yourself searching for the perfect gift for the hard-working dad in your life. Dad’s are notoriously difficult to buy for, especially if they are well stocked-up on ties and socks. Why not make this year a special one and give a Father’s Day gift that will keep you in the good books for years to come. Here are some brilliant Father’s Day ideas:

Social Dad:

Beer tasting or a pub tour is a great Father's Day gift

With some Dads, there’s nothing they enjoy more than relaxing with a good old pint of beer with friends and family. Thankfully, there are ways to make this simple pleasure a bit more of an occasion than simply buying him a pint. A brewery tour is an excellent way to get an insight into local breweries and most include a good few tastings along the way.

Musical Dad:

Musical dads will love a rock walking tour

If he’s into music, he’s sure to love our tour of famous musical locations of London, where he can visit Abbey Road and get a photo on the zebra crossing.

If The Rollling Stones are his thing, why not take him to the amazing Exhibitionism at Saatchi Gallery? The exhibition was curated by the band themselves and it’s got a whole host of artwork, clothes, photographs, video footage and a recreation of the very first ramshackle  flat the band shared! An absolute must for any self-respecting Stones fan.

Sporting Dad:

Take a stadium tour with your dad

If he’s sport mad, a stadium tour might be right up his street. Whether he’s into football, cricket, tennis or rugby – it’s a great way to spend quality time together while indulging a passion. Sporting fans never forget the first time they visited the stadium of their favourite team.

Cultural Dad:


If he’s on the cultured side, there are so many great exhibitions this summer  and Father’s Day is the perfect excuse to arrange a trip. Why not try the Muhammad Ali exhibition at the O2 – I Am The Greatest? The moving story of the rise and rise of Muhammad Ali is inspiring and unbelievable in equal measures. If fine art is more his thing, The Royal Academy Summer Exhibition is a brilliant display of new and established art – it’s bound to spark a few discussions!

How will you be spending Father’s Day?
