Shopping for Father’s Day can be an impossible task. And with June 20 rolling around quicker than you’d think, it’s time to start thinking about that impossible task. It’s so often a case of what do you get for the man who has everything? But you’d be surprised.
Plenty of our players have been considering what to purchase for their parents across our bingo games and chat rooms over the past few weeks, and to help you out, we’ve created this little cheat sheet of gifts for making a purchase this Father’s Day…
For The Techie Dads
We all know Dads love a gadget, and you can pick up something a little techy for him no matter what his interests. There’s always something to suit all budgets, from soundbars and wireless speakers, to record players, alarm clocks, and even small filmmakers like the Moment Andy To’s Mobile Filmmaking set, which can connect to a range of different smartphone devices.
For the techie Dads who also are a fan of keeping active, items such as Fitbits are also a great option, while if you really want to splash the cash, then why not consider a Peloton. We’re sure you’ve seen the adverts.
For The Sporty Dads
It’s a big summer of sport, and while we may sometimes consider playing online slingo games as a sport, we’re talking more about the European Championships, Wimbledon, the Olympics, and a few months jam-packed with cricket.
You can help your father celebrate in style with a replica shirt of his favourite nation, or perhaps even a mug, pint pot, or craft beer selection so he can watch from home in perfect comfort. You’ll find tons of little trinkets based upon the various nations competing at Euro 2020, and with Father’s Day landing mid-tournament it offers the perfect chance to really treat him.
For The DIY Dads
The summertime is the time many Dads get themselves out into the garden and you can provide a helping hand with a new bit of kit. A trip to the local B&Q, or at the very least a browse of Amazon will give you plenty of inspiration, with the likes of drills and other power tools coming in a range of budgets, while you can also be a bit more creative with your purchases too.
If your Dad likes to spend time in the garden, why not consider buying a bird feeder, bird box, or mini beehive for him to build. Not only is it a great present for your father, it’s a treat for the local wildlife too.
For The Readers
It’s a staple of any Father’s Day, but you can’t go wrong with a book as a gift. You can purchase one to suit his exact interests, whether it be TV, Film, walking, travel, or anything else, while there are plenty of great novels around at the moment.
A popular choice this year are brewing and beer related books, as well as mixology guides. Of course, you can also look at getting a food recipe book, which offers a great hint for your Dad to also light the barbecue and celebrate the day in style.
