So, it’s that time of year when Father’s Day comes rocking around again. Yeah, I know what you’re thinking…why can’t we ever have a children’s day?
Father’s come in all shapes and sizes and whether they are biological or not, it’s the day to show the person we love just how much they mean to us. This can come in the form of breakfast in bed, a dinner out or an amazing gift. Or if you’re one lucky father, all of the above! In preparation for this day we find ourselves hitting up the shops, asking our dads what they want and I say this for the majority of us, usually thinking WHAT THE HELL CAN I BUY HIM? Well, look no further my friends as STYLE-etc comes to the rescue! With the luxurious to the affordable we aim to give you inspiration that can get that gift/idea boxed off quickly so you can rest easy until the big day.
Take a look at these little gems below for gaining some Fathers day inspo, as let’s be honest we all need a helping hand…
The ‘techno’ gift
-Connecting your Iphone, Ipad or any form of smart technology to your tv. Cheaper than an Apple tv and just as effective-win, win.
The thoughtful gift
-A collection of photo’s bound together so that the memories are all in one place. Choosing the best ones that were close to your heart (cue, awww).
The smelly gift
Aftershave, Gucci ‘Guilty’, £49.00
–C’mon we all love a bit of something to make us smell a treat. Men too. Depending upon your fathers taste, the choosing of the aftershave may differ. However, a little fave of mine is below.
The active dad
Trainers, Adidas, £57.00
Day trip: Go ape or Land Rover Taster Drive
–Possibly one of the most fun places to go where trust, a daring attitude and excitement go together. Something to bring the family together? Or for those with a hatred of heights maybe give this one a miss.
If you want to mix in the fine dining head to the Second Floor Brasserie and enjoy a four course meal plus a Land Rover Taster Drive* at Land Rover Experience Halewood, home to Range Rover Evoque and Discovery Sport. Get behind the wheel for a One Hour Taster Drive as an introduction to Land Rover and off-road driving skills. Enjoy a welcome drink, followed by an instructor introduction and an overview of the Land Rover brand. Whilst behind the wheel, you’ll navigate inclines, descents, low traction surfaces, rock crawls, wheel articulation sections and bridge crossings. The Father’s Day dining offer with Land Rover will be available on Sunday 21 June 2015 from midday until 5pm. All reservations to be made via Second Floor Reception by calling 0161 828 8898 or emailing email@example.com
The relaxed kinda dad
Either coffee or tea (or maybe something stronger) this is a nice gift for the avid drinker.
