Happy Father’s Day - A Gift Guide For Fabulous Dads and Father-figures Everywhere
Father's Day Ready-Made Box of Hugs Gift Ideas
for some of our 'Ready Made Box of Hugs' gift ideas for Father's Day.
Spring is well and truly in the air and there are signs of new life everywhere. Seeing this father goose standing proud and protective over his precious baby goslings got us thinking about Father’s Day - which is on Sunday 19th June this year. Back in March we packed and sent your thoughtful Mother’s Day gifts with their lovely messages of love and appreciation. Now, it’s time to celebrate dads and father-figures everywhere - as well as remembering those who are no longer with us. Father’s Day is a great time to reflect on and acknowledge the role your dad or father-figure plays and/or has played in your life and to say thank you with a lovely Father’s Day gift from Box of Hugs
. These gifts are also great for birthdays, thank you’s, get well soon, thinking of you, ‘just because…’, and for most occasions really.
What does your dad mean to you?
We think it’s safe to say that our dad was the softer touch, the one we went to when we’d been told off by mum who had the (not so) easy task of looking after 5 of us and taking on the role of rule enforcer most of the time. The ‘wait until your dad gets home’ threat didn’t really work for us but then we were great kids so she didn’t need to use it anyway...
Like many other dad's, our dad was often away working during the week when we were really young. Whilst mum excelled at the cooking and baking side of things, made all our school play outfits, took us to after school activities and generally looked after us, our childhood memories of dad are more playful. They include him taking us to rugby or cricket matches with him at the village club - giving mum a well earned break - feeding us panda pops, peanuts and scampi fries in the clubhouse, sounds of the motor racing or other sport on TV on Sundays, taking us to the local fairs and coming home with goldfish in plastic bags, cooking his famous honey basted chicken on the BBQ come rain or shine.
As we grew up he’d take us to our hockey or rounders matches, drive us back to school or Uni, and offered us our first alcoholic drink (we think he liked the company and thought it was easier to keep an eye on us that way). Now we’re grown up he continues to be extremely generous with his time and money. He loves a bargain so if there’s a deal to be found, he’ll buy 6 and is always the one who arrives with tonnes of chocolate and snacks after he’s been away on holiday or when he comes to visit, along with a boot full of booze. He dreams big, is competitive at cards and we and our kids love going out fishing with him. He has had a big impact on us and the lives of our families, so Father’s Day is an important day for us. That’s before we even get to our fathers-in-law and our husbands and partners who are now great dad’s, grandads and uncles themselves. We love you all and thank you all for being so wonderful.
What role did/does your dad or father-figure play in your life, your kids and family lives? Maybe he is or was the rule enforcer, the distant parent, the easy touch, your confidante - the person you always turn to for advice or for comfort - the person you look up to, or maybe even your role model. Maybe your dad was absent but you have or had a wonderful step-dad, foster dad, grandfather or other father-figure in your life. Whatever and whoever they are or were, we’re sure they have and/or had a profound impact on who you are and on your life and we invite you all to celebrate them this Father’s Day with a Box of Hugs
Whether you’re a flight away or just down the road and whether this is their 1st or 80th Father’s Day - sending a Box of Hugs is a great way to let your dad or father-figure know how much you appreciate them and how much they mean to you. Simply choose the Father’s Day option at checkout and we’ll get your Box of Hugs packed and delivered in time for Father’s Day.
