When is Father’s Day?
In the UK, Father’s Day is typically the third Sunday in June. The first ever Father’s Day took place in 1908 in America, and since then, the date has been celebrated by countries all around the world. Here in the UK, we share the same date as the US but it varies for other countries.
Why do we celebrate Father’s Day?
It’s not a tradition as long-standing as Mother’s Day, but nonetheless, Father’s Day is a chance to show appreciation for father figures of all kinds. The UK started celebrating Father’s Day once it was signed into US law in 1971 by President Richard Nixon, but the US had been celebrating dads on this date long before.
From fathers, grandfathers, stepdads and even uncles, the third Sunday in June is a day to show the men in your life some love.
How to celebrate Father’s Day
Whether you go all out or keep your celebrations low-key, there’s plenty of ways to celebrate Father’s Day.
Why not cook a nice family meal or go to your dad’s favourite restaurant for lunch. Alternatively, you could take him to see his favourite sports team play or take him away for a short weekend break where you can spend some quality time together.
However you choose to spend the day, your dad is sure to feel appreciated and loved. To make the day even more special, why not get him a gift that he can cherish and something that can remind him of the time you share.

There’s no better way to show how much you care for your dad than with a personalised gift from the heart.
Personalising a gift is a great way to make a unique present, something the recipient won’t have had before and a keepsake that can last a lifetime. A personalised hip flask is a great gift for any man who loves a tipple of their favourite scotch or bourbon, especially when it can be enjoyed time after time, at any occasion.

Our watch cufflinks are a unique gift that feature a creative Steampunk design with an open case so you can see the intricate watch mechanisms.

Alternatively, you might want to show your fashion-forward dad how much you admire his sense of style with a lapel pin, made from exquisite felt materials. These lapel pins are a fantastic accessory to any outfit, especially if your dad likes to add a little something extra to his style. Our lapel pins are available in a variety of colours and styles and are an ideal addition to any outfit and occasion.
