Father's Day Gift Ideas

Posted on: 12 June 2019

Dad’s really are amazing aren’t they? It’s like they’re given super powers the day you’re born. How is it they always seen to have a tenner on them? Why are they so good at cooking food on the BBQ - even when it’s burnt it still tastes good?! WHEN did they learn to Dad dance and how does it work with every song ever written?

We’ll probably never know how he does it but we do know that every Dad deserves some appreciation this Fathers Day. With Nottingham Independents Festival fast approaching, why not show some love to Dad and Nottingham's fantastic Independent businesses? Whether you're looking for fab food or great gifts, you won't need to look for long in Nottingham's thriving independent scene. We've put together a list of fun gifts and activities to get you started but you can find a full Independents directory HERE if you need more inspiration. 

200 Degrees Barista School 

If Dad loves coffee then he's also going to love this fun, unique experience from 200 degrees. Barista School will have your old man creating coffee like a pro in no time. It's also a great activity if your looking for a gift you can do together. Enjoy! 

A Round Or Two Of Adventure Golf At The Lost City

If your Dad’s the bravest person you know, why not see how he fares on a jungle adventure this Father’s Day – for half price!

Treat your dad to his very own tropical adventure at The Lost City Adventure Golf this June and once you’ve battled tigers, snakes and spiders reward yourselves with a well-earned drink in our Tiki Bar. There’s a free hot drink on offer for Dad or a wide range of alcoholic and soft drinks to suit every taste. Half price entry and the free drink offer is available all day on Sunday 16th June.

A Shiny New Pair Of Sunglasses From Loxley Opticians And Eyewear Experts 

There's nothing more cool than a pair of good sunglasses! With summer just around the corner, Father's day is the perfect time to treat Dad to a stylish pair of sunnies. The friendly team are always on hand and happy to help you find the perfect pair if you're a little unsure. All of Loxley's glasses and sunglasses are made by independent brands as well - which is a nice bonus. 

A Good Beer And Tasty Meal At The Herbert Kilpin

If Dads a beer fan then you really can't go wrong with a trip to The Herbert Kilpin. With a healthy selection of craft beer always on tap and tasty comfort food available ( the Philly Cheese Steak sandwiches are seriously next level ), it's a definite win for Father's Day gifts.

A Belly Busting Meal At Annie's Burger Shack

If you've ever been to Annie's Burger Shack then you'll know that the burgers there are on an entirely different level of amazing. A meal here is more than just a treat, it's more like a treasure for your stomach. Be sure to point out the optional curly fries if you're after bonus points!
