DADS - the unsung heroes
, 19 May 2011 –
Dads - the unsung heroes in our lives - deserve a treat on Fathers’ Day.
Even a token pressie on Sunday, June 19 will show your appreciation.
Presenting your dad with a nice cup of tea - unprompted, of course - could be the perfect start to his morning.
But if you want your gesture to be extra special pop into lifestyle store Armstrong Ward and pick up one of these fabulous Emma Bridgewater half pint mugs (£17.95).
Furnish him with the Sunday papers and offer refills at regular intervals for added effect.
If your budget is a little bigger, or mum is generously helping out, head to electrical paradise Hadwins for one of these...
A product that proves beauty is in both the eyes and ears of the beholder! Watch dad whimper with joy at this design forward compact Vita Audio R2i stereo system, which produces a crystal clear sound and serves as both an iPod dock and digital and FM radio. (£280 for the walnut casing or £300 for the black or white)
Tog 24 have something to suit every outdoor Dad, from blister-proof walking socks to the superb True accessories range.
Invest just £7.95 and your dad will feel like Ray Mears. There are tools for every camping crisis - turn your keyring into a torch, screwdriver or bottle opener, even an emergency money clip.
Sometimes though, the ideal present is something we are all a little bit short on - time. Tell your dad you’ll treat him to lunch, coffee and a natter at Pizza Express...
