If Father’s Day has crept up on you again and you have no idea what to get for the dad in your life, check out our last-minute gift guide.
For the Father with style and substance
Made at America’s oldest and smallest working distillery, Woodford Reserve is perfect for dads who are a big fan of bourbon and have a penchant for perfectly crafted drinks. With a silky smooth and almost creamy finish, it’s an ideal base for an Old Fashioned.
A "special" message
If your dad isn’t one for gift, but would appreciate just a thank you on the day, why not try the Tesco Tannoy Takeover? You’ll be given the opportunity to share an extra special message with your dad over the tannoys. All you have to do is record your message online, select the store, and the time and date you’d like the message to be played. Weird, but kind of wonderful.
For the dad who likes to wine and dine
No one would turn down the chance to have dinner with a view, so why not take your dad to Plateau in Canary Wharf for contemporary French cuisine? A four-course meal is on offer for £50 or £60 including unlimited champagne - and to top it all off, dads could also receive a free haircut voucher (subject to availability). Great plan for those who aren’t sensitive about hair-loss...
Contact the restaurant directly for bookings.
Grub and grooming
Unlike your average afternoon tea, the “Daddy Cool Afternoon Tea” at 108 Pantry, in The Marylebone hotel, includes treats such as hearty grilled rib eye steak sandwich and chunky pork and truffle sausage roll - not to forget the “man-friendly” sweet. Fathers will then receive a complimentary hot towel wet shave or beard trim by royally appointed expert barbers Truefitt & Hill.
Tickets cost £32 per person - contact the hotel directly for bookings.
The Daddy of all burgers
If your dad is an uncompromising carnivore, Morrisons has just the thing for him. The supermarket has created a monster-burger, four times the size of a normal one - and it's only £3.They’ve also created a bread bun to go with it which costs 50p. Er, yum?
