Fathers Day

Fathers day is just around the corner and its important we think of our dear old dads. I feel like Mothers day is such a sensation these days that sometimes we forget our dads need some thanks at times too. Not that they would admit it..

In recent years Fathers day has started to get more popular but It’s hard to tell exactly where or when this tradition began. According to some the first Father’s Day was celebrated in Washington in 1910.  A woman came up with the idea of honouring her dad as She thought mothers were getting all the praise while she felt her dad was just as deserving to have a day dedicated to making sure he felt appreciated. Fair play to her, I don’t think I’d have gone to the effort of trying to get a national holiday for my dad, a pair of socks and a cup of tea brought into him was generally enough from me.

Dads are simple creatures really most of the time. If your dad is anything like mine, an invitation to join you for a pint or to head off on a hike together would be his idea of a great fathers day. Buuut, if you feel like splashing out a little more we have a lovely selection of cufflinks and tie pins that would make a great gift also!

Whatever you end up doing, I hope you and your dad have a lovely weekend.
