Father’s Day in the UK is the one day in the year to give thanks to the UK's somewhat underappreciated dads. Mums are often lauded with all the attention on Mother’s Day, and it’s perhaps true they traditionally have the harder role during childcare. But, in the modern world, we think dads should be showered with more attention and lots of praise.
The tradition of Father’s Day has been around for a long time, originally it was observed on March 19 in the Middle Ages, then known as St Joseph’s Day. It first spread to South America from Spanish influence and has been widely taken up around the world with more than 40 countries thanking their dads in the month of May. So, after all this time, don’t we owe it to our dads to honour them as best we can?
If you think you have the world’s best dad and you’d like to let him know, then you’re in the right place. But, how? Our Father’s Day 2017 offers and deals are the perfect solution.

For the petrolheads, we have loads of great offers from Halfords which will help keep his pride and joy in tip-top condition. Perhaps some new threads are in order because there’s not much point cruising around in a sleek car in a disheveled state. Let us take you through our choices for a gift for dads everywhere!
For dad’s who are green fingered lovers of all things horticultural, then taking a look at the quirky gifts on offer from Not on the High Street are a fantastic option. Not on The High Street are known for weird, wonderful – and sometimes bizarre – gifts; you won’t find gifts like theirs anywhere else. Their Father’s Day gift ideas are second to none. How a Grow Your Own Red Wine Gift Crate, (see what we mean now?), Your red wine loving dad is sure to geek out over this, and he’ll certainly take care of it, knowing the precious nectar which will bear fruit from his nurture.Dad will also love the range at B&Q, there’s everything from wood paints,
when his shed (man cave) needs a paint job, tiles to redo the kitchen or bathroom, garden buildings
and gazebos, great for a summer garden party when he’s entertaining with that new barbecue. Or why not buy him some new garden plants or better yet buy a variety of different seeds so he can grow a new bed from root to leaves to flowers…
Speaking of, let’s consider the respective merits of gas vs coal. Its all down to personality - If your dad is more of a rustic outdoorsy type he might prefer the old-school get-your-hands-dirty type of coal option. There’s some fantastic coal barbecues at Argos.
When buying coal barbecues you should bear in mind that the flavour between coal and gas is pretty much the same, although it’s an old wives’ tale that coal imparts more of a flame-grilled taste compared to gas, you can read more about this on Amazing Ribs
. Actually, many taste tests have proved there’s not much of a difference in flavour between the two varieties. However, you can boost that smoky flavour that barbecues are so well loved for by using smoking chips. Or use different types of wood chips
to impart unique flavours to the food you’re cooking.
Or, does he really like to crank up the heat, and have more space for grilling with a gas option? Then he might want the gas option. When considering a gas gril for your dad or husband, you should ask yourself ‘is he patient?’, if not then gas might be the way to go, unlike with coal barbecues, with gas you can cook at the drop of a hat. However, they’re more expensive, so you win some, lose some. Visit Homebase and see how much you can save on a coal
barbecue. You could also try the likes of The Range
for all your summer cooking needs.
