This year, Father’s Day, which falls on the 21st June might be very different compared to recent years. With the current situation, we’re not sure if lockdown measures will have been eased enough in time to enjoy a multi-household meal or day out, or brunch at dad’s favourite cafe like you might usually do! So, here are some great alternative gift options to please your dad on his special day!


1. Learn something new together

How about inspiring the man that always inspires you with a gifted class of something he’ll love? There’s nothing more rewarding than learning something new and doing this together will be great bonding too! You could allow him to grow his skills in an area he’s passionate about. Maybe it’s something like writing or photography! Sites like Masterclass offer gift lessons across all types of categories taught by the very best in movies, sports, television, cooking, photography, gardening and more. You could give him something completely new to learn like a new language and both sign up to an online language course or get lessons from an online tutor.   Or, if he wants to get fit, why not treat him to some personal fitness classes to help keep him motivated! There are plenty of services at very affordable prices

2. Have a virtual get together

How about getting the family together for something like a virtual pub quiz? You could either organise the quiz yourself and host it via a zoom call. Or you could join in with an organised one so you can play too! Many pubs across the country are hosting their own online quiz evenings during the lockdown. For example, Brewdog has turned its 48 UK bars into an online hangout space called the Brewdog Open Arms. The bar hosts virtual beer tastings, homebrew masterclasses, live music, comedy, as well as pub quizzes! The daily scheduled activities are all revealed on Brewdog’s social media accounts. What a great idea! Or, if you’re looking for something even more adventurous, how about booking an online escape room? Many escape rooms across the country are now offering this to their customers during this time.



3. Take him on a virtual tour

Dads holiday plans may be on standstill, but there are still ways you can explore the wonders of the world. Take a (virtual) trip across some of the top sites in the world with access to a huge list of virtual attractions such as: Buckingham Palace, Houston Zoo, Louvre Museum, British Museum and more!



4. Watch the Summer Solstice at Stonehenge: Live!

If he doesn’t mind the early wake up call, how about wowing him by watching the summer solstice LIVE from Stonehenge, wherever you are in the world! ☀. English Heritage will be broadcasting the sunset on Saturday 20th June and the sunrise on Sunday 21st June. Sunset is at 21:26 BST (20:26 GMT) and sunrise is at 04:52 BST (03:52 GMT). 

5. Deliver him his favourite goodies

If you can’t see your dad in person this year then how about treating him to a delivery of his favourite goodies. If he’s a beer lover how about a beer tasting gift set?. You could both taste the different beers together even if it’s virtually! You could also top it off with a nice jar of crackling too! If he’s more of a fitness fanatic there’s also plenty of beautiful health food gift sets too!
