Alternative Gifts for Father’s Day

Father’s Day is approaching, and children of all ages will celebrate their dads with cards, breakfast in bed and creative Father’s Day gifts. If you are wondering what to get your dad for Father’s Day, look no further – here are our best tips for Father’s Day gifts with a twist.

Days out with Dad

The best gift for most dads is to get to spend time with their children. Surprise him with a day out at the golf course where you can help caddy and practice your shots at the green. If you give Dad a practical and beautiful golf umbrella, he will also have a keepsake for the day - as well as protection against the elements, which may well be needed.

Another fun day out is to book tickets for something Dad will enjoy, whether it is a day at the races, a play or a football match. It’s what memories are made of! You could also include a quality cashmere scarf, made from the finest materials and with a classic tartan pattern. It certainly will help him keep warm on his day out!

Father’s day fun gifts

Sometimes the best gifts are the simplest ones. Food and drink combinations are always gratefully received. Why not consider a personalised whisky and shortbread pairing as a special present? You could even treat Dad to a home cooked dinner with his favourite dish, finishing off with a cheese and oatcake combination.

You can also bring Dad to the great outdoors, in some of the world’s finest landscapes right here in Scotland. A hike is especially nice, and with these nice Walkers thermal mugs you can bring a delicious cup of coffee to enjoy on the drive or the walk.

Classic presents for the classic dad

There is a reason the classic gifts are classics. Fathers have appreciated beautiful and practical pens, a timeless watch or stylish cufflinks on their special day for many years. If it is a special occasion, why not splurge on a beautiful piece of luggage for the travel enthusiast, and get the easily recognisable Walkers luggage tags to go with it? A classic tie with tartan cufflinks from Walkers always goes down well, and this high quality, durable pen in carbon fibre is another gift that will be appreciated for years.

Whatever you choose, have a happy Father’s Day and enjoy the day with family and close friends.
