First thing’s first, if you haven’t already, make sure you pencil 15th June in your diary now. Father’s Day has been celebrated around the world since its origin in the USA in the early 20th Century. It’s meant as a simple celebration of the bond of male parenthood and it’s a brilliant chance to say thank you to our dads by spoiling them rotten.
As well as making the effort to spend time with your dad on June 15th, it’s high time to think about a great present too. This is where Wowcher comes in. We present to you, the ultimate guide to picking a great present for your old man (hint, don’t call him old) this year…
For many men, and I write this as a male technophile, there’s nothing in life quite as exciting as unwrapping a new bit of technology, be it a TV, computer or camera. If it has pixels, batteries, a screen or wires, then there’s a good chance that it would make a fine Father’s Day gift. If your dad is an electricals lover, then Wowcher has manna from heaven in the form of some great deals on electrical goods. DJ headphones, digital camcorders, handheld tablets – you name it, Wowcher’s got it!
Heads up, sports fan
Men like sport. This generalised and entirely unscientific assumption about the male species can hold the key to a great Father’s Day gift. Your dad will, most likely, enjoy watching or participating in some kind of sport and a shared recognition of this can form a great bonding moment between parent and child.
Recently, Wowcher has featured a great personalised football team dressing room photo (for the real fan), tickets to see rugby at Twickenham and even a holiday package to see the mighty Barcelona play football at the Camp Nou. As the Football World Cup approaches, and with great sports gifts, both big and small being added to Wowcher all the time, you’re sure to find a great present for the armchair England manager that is your father.
Summer is not far off. The winds of change are in the air, or more specifically, fronts of high pressure air, bringing with them warm weather and less rain (please note all weather forecasting is based on guesswork). With Father’s Day on 15th June and the arrival of summer weather on the horizon, it can only mean one thing; dad needs a present to get him outdoors and into the sunshine.
The arrival of the sun means two things for dads everywhere; they will fall asleep in the sun and go a bright hue of (Wowcher) pink after refusing to wear sun cream, and Barbeque-ing will be compulsory! Wowcher regularly runs deals for lovely ‘Moon Rocker’ sun lounger, patio heaters, BBQs and more, so there’s plenty to choose from for the perfect garden gift for dad this year!
If dad is more of an action man than a lad of leisure, then Wowcher regularly runs offers for fun-filled action packed adventure experiences for dad who think they’re James May or Lewis Hamilton. For petrol heads out there, you can regularly find supercar driving experiences on Wowcher. Alternatively, Wowcher regularly offer exciting, outdoor adventure days on Segways with companies around the UK, such as this great offer in Manchester.
So there you have it; a brief guide to sorting out a great Father’s Day gift right here on Wowcher.co.uk. Have a great day on 15th June and as your old man reclines on a rattan garden sofa playing on a new Android tablet with the BBQ sizzling in the background and his personalised football team framed print on the wall, he’ll be a happy man. Good Job, kid!
