It’s that time again! It seems to creep up every year. The day we honour DADS. The workhorse of the family. The emotional rock. The guardian of the thermostat. Keeper of the TV remote. Deadly accurate with a slipper at a thousand yards. With Fathers Day fast approaching (it’s 17th June in the UK) we take a look at some of the coolest gifts available for the old geezer.
“Father’s Day is a celebration honoring fathers and celebrating fatherhood, paternal bonds, and the influence of fathers in society. In Catholic Europe, it has been celebrated on March 19 (St. Joseph’s Day) since the Middle Ages. This celebration was brought by the Spanish and Portuguese to Latin America, where March 19 is often still used for it, though many countries in Europe and the Americas have adopted the U.S. date, which is the third Sunday of June (falling on June 17 in 2018).” — Wikipedia

Dads need cold drinks on hot days and it doesn’t always have to be beer. Why not give him a gift that you can get some use out of too? Ask him and he’ll tell you – he’s always wanted one of these. *May not contain actual puppies
Not that Dad is necessarily known for his ability to do the housework but he tries. Or at least he says he does. Why not give him a break from pretending to do the housework by getting him a robot who will actually do it for him!
How many times have you heard the dusty old-timer tell you the tales of yore? The legends of his misspent youth in the arcade. His time at the top of the high-score board is firmly cemented in family lore. IT’S TIME TO PROVE IT, OLD MAN!
He was there at the beginning. He saw it all, and Fathers Day is for Gramps too. Is your Grandfather cool? He will be ! Life finds a way.
Just because you tell him all the time doesn’t mean he necessarily grasps the concept. You should probably buy him a card that makes it clear – you appreciate him for helping to make you the awesome beast you grew up to become!
He wiped your arse and put up with your incessant tomfoolery for your entire life. Buy the man a beer!
You will never understand the man. You will never know what goes on inside that complicated and logical brain, but know this – ACDC makes Dads feel good. That’s all you need to know.
And if all else fails and your completely skint – play him this song instead
