    UK Father’s Day is on 21st June this year, which is on a Sunday. It’s an ideal time to treat your dad, your children’s dad, a grandfather, or anyone who’s been like a father to you, to something special. We might still be under partial lockdown in the UK, but that doesn’t mean we can’t gift our father’s or father-like figures with something special this year.

    And right now, with the UK still operating under many coronavirus restrictions, it could also be the time to gift your father something practical and useful that he can actually make use of during this time at home!

    Although the shops may still be closed (for now), there are plenty of brilliant presents you can purchase online. If your dad is green-fingered, you could check out our favourite places to buy plants online, or perhaps treat him to a quirky letterbox gift (they do everything in letterbox gift format now – from cheese to socks!)
