For the past year, interacting with family has been difficult. FaceTime chats and socially distanced doorstep conversations simply can’t compare to hugging your loved one without worry.

Thankfully, restrictions are slowly lifting – and, with Father’s Day this Sunday, there’s no better opportunity to make up for the lost time with a flood of appreciation! In this week’s blog, we’re here to give you some ideas on what you can do to share the love with your old man. 

For The Gardener

There’s no denying that men are notoriously difficult to buy gifts for! The best Father’s Day presents – for your dad or any father figure in your life – are the ones he’ll really use. If he likes to spend time in the garden, forget the World’s Best Dad mug (even if he is!) and stick to something special tinged with practicality. 

With over 60 years of experience in garden retailing, Van Hage have a unique range of equipment, seeds and much more! Is you dad a self-proclaimed BBQ King? If so, we highly recommend that you take a gander at Van Hage’s barbecue accessories. With their stylish aprons and grill mitts, your old man is sure to turn heads at every garden party this summer! 

It’s no secret that dads love power tools. Chainsaws, hedge trimmers and garden vacuums; the mere utterance of these three are sure to excite your green-fingered father. For all the gear he needs to keep his garden in ship shape, head to Van Hage and make your dad’s dreams come true! 

Get Creative

Are you looking for something thoughtful and personal for your dad this Father’s Day? Show how much you care and try your hand at making a card or scrapbook! The Works have a huge range of art and craft materials in store – visit this weekend to find everything you need for your Father’s Day project.

If you’re looking for more traditional Father’s Day gifts, The Works also have a wide selection of great reads, board games and tasty treats! Head over to their store and grab some goodies for your old man. 

Angle Axe

There’s nothing better than a beautiful Father’s Day bonding session… axe throwing! If your dad is an aspiring viking, we highly recommend a visit to Peterborough One’s latest addition; Angle Axe Throwing!

Think darts – but bigger! Hurl a specialised throwing axe towards a timber target and amaze dad with your excellent aim! With expert coaches on hand throughout your session, you don’t need to be a pro to play. With scoring and leagues, it’s the perfect opportunity to hone your talents and discover a new hobby.  

Set to open 19 June (tomorrow!) visit their website and book online. Just make sure you can fully trust your dad with an axe!
