How to Make Father’s Day Different

Father’s Day is an important day. It’s that reminder that we need to thank the dads in our lives that give us love, support, and when we ask for it – money! They might joke about being a personal bank with no sleep and grey hair from the stress of fatherhood, but they love us really, just like we love them. So on this special day, you might want to do something different to show them exactly how much you appreciate everything they have done for you.

Read on for our top ideas on what to do this Father’s Day to make them feel extra special and bring a smile to their face!

Cook a Meal

Le Creuset

Some dads are amazing chefs who have the skills (and vocabulary) of Gordon Ramsey in the kitchen. So, Father’s Day is the perfect time to give them a rest and show off your fabulous cooking skills. After years of looking after you and always putting tasty food on the table, show them how much you appreciate the effort and switch roles for a day. Buy the ingredients for some of his favourite dishes and treat your dad, and maybe even the whole family, to a homemade three-course meal – he’s bound to love this!

Although not all dads are Gino D’Acampo’s in the kitchen, having a lovely meal cooked by their kids is sure to make them feel happy this Father’s Day (and let them know what good food actually tastes like!). Check out the homeware section of our Northwich store for some amazing kitchen utensils, cutlery and dishes that will make this Father’s Day meal perfect.

Buy Him an Outfit

Make Father’s Day different this year and treat your dad (or fashion disaster father) to a new outfit! This idea will bring some fun to your Father’s Day as your old man struts his stuff through the living room showing off his new outfit for all the family. Whether he thinks he knows fashion or you think he needs some help choosing shirts that fit him, this is the perfect gift that will last a lot longer than a box of chocolates. We stock many incredible menswear brands such as Haworth, Weird Fish and White Stuff who offer a range of high-end clothing to suit any style or personality.

Surprise Him with a Meal Out


If you are anything like us then your dad will usually insist that he wants to pick up the bill when you go out for a meal. Well, this year, surprise your dad to a meal out at his favourite restaurant or somewhere new that you know he will love. Blindfold him in the car and tell him to wear his best shirt before revealing the location when you arrive. It will be a fun experience followed by delicious food! Always check sites like Groupon for deals on restaurants near you. You could even be tricky and secretly invite the whole family for this special Father’s Day meal!

Treat Him to Some Skincare
