Into Fathers Day Ideas

Written by: Jess Walker

Father figures come in all shapes and sizes and this Fathers Day we want to help you celebrate them and show them some love. So, we’ve put together a guide just for you to help you find the perfect gift, card or gesture that helps make their day.

Don’t forget Fathers Day this year (2021) is June 20th!

The perfect card


Paperchase is a great choice for cards and stationery, they have the conventional “Dad you’re the best” cards but also some hilarious alternatives. There's also a range of gifts in store too, so if your Father figure is in need of a “Best Dad” trophy and some beautiful notebooks.


Clintons have a wide range of cards for all occasions and it’s no different for Fathers Day. They also have a selection of gifts and gift wrap too so if you’re looking to get it all in one place this is for you.

The perfect gift


Fenwick has a wide range of clothing, accessories and homeware perfect for Dad. Whether it's a new tie for work, a fancy watch or some new whisky glasses you’re bound to find something truly special here.


Baccus is your go to for branded menswear. From Lacoste to DKNY you can pick up a comfy jumper or their favourite accessories. Baccus also do gift cards so if you’re not sure what would fit or you’ve forgotten their favourite colour you can give the gift of great clothes without getting it wrong.

Bill and Berts

Is Dad an avid coffee drinker or loves gardening? Bill and Berts has a great range of themed gifts for them to enjoy. If you’re unsure what to get, the Bill and Berts team are super friendly and always happy to help.


JD have a great range of sportswear and shoes for the sporty dads. If they prefer to watch the sports rather than partake why not grab them a Euros t-shirt or their favourite teams kit? If in doubt they’re always in need of more gym socks!

The perfect gesture

Dinner at Cuckoo Dough

Cuckoo Dough has just opened up in Colchester and my-oh-my it looks delicious! Whether you want to start Fathers Day off right with a brunch to remember or finish the day with “probably the best Mac and Cheese in town” you’re bound to make Dad happy with a belly full of great food.

A day at the museums

A day of celebration for the History and Arts buffs, why not take a tour of the Castle which dates back to the 11th century and then head on to Firstsite who are celebrating 10 years in their award winning listed building for a spot of contemporary art. And what better way to end the day than a tour around the newly renovated Mercury Theatre.

Dinner at home with M&S

Want to thank Dad for all the work he does for you? Why not treat him to a *kind of* home cooked meal with the M&S Dine In offer. Why not pick up his favourite wine or a pack of his favourite beer. Or if you don’t want to cook why not try the Fathers Day Pork Pie gift selection.
Also a special mention for Marks and Spencers who have a “You’re the best Dad and a Mum all rolled into one!” card.

We hope this guide has helped you think of a few ideas to for the father figure in your life whoever that might be and you have a great time celebrating that special person.
