3 great Father's Day ideas

Celebrated on the first Sunday of September, Father's Day is a national celebration of dads and all that they do. Make the time to show your father just how much he means to you. Give him a special gift on Father's Day - something that he will remember for years to come. For all the fathers and father figures out there, this token of love can show just how much you appreciate them.

Below are some ideas for gifts that your father is sure to love. Forget socks, aftershave or cuff links, give something extra-special this year. After all, your dad is worth it!

A classic car joyride

Does your dad love vintage cinema? Is he a fan of classic cars? Would he love to be a movie star for a day? There are many reasons why a classic car experience is a great gift. Hire a luxury vehicle - with a chauffeur, of course - so that your father can be ferried around in style and comfort for the day. Pleasure rides can include stops at various destinations: arrange a tour of the local area for your father, or have him arrive in style for a special celebration meal.

A weekend mini-break

If your parents love to travel, pick a city destination and send them to a luxury hotel for the weekend. Include tickets to a show your dad will love, or to a museum exhibition, or a day pass for a local golf course. Don't forget to send a bottle of champagne, too! Show your father you love him, and give mum a treat as well. A short holiday could be just what they need, and they'll have the chance to make some lasting memories.

An evening class

If there is a skill your father has always wanted to learn, but never found the time, why not book him onto a taster session? From woodworking to cooking and from ancient history to computing, there are lots of different evening classes, workshops and tutoring sessions that would make fantastic gifts. You could even take part together!
