Father’s Day 2010

Today is the day when 55 countries across the world, including the United Kingdom, celebrate all of the men who are fathers, young or old. Bringing a child into the world is one of the scariest and most difficult things you will ever do, so it deserves at least one day a year to acknowledge this honourable task!

The day falls on the 3rd Sunday of June each year, and recognises all aspects of fatherhood; the paternal bond, children’s love and appreciation for their father and how dad’s everywhere influence our world and our society. The day has been officially recognised since 1913, but was celebrated long before that.

It is traditional to send a card to your father, and all of the greetings card retailers design special ones for the event. Some people also send cards to grandfathers, or to father figures. Our London escort have already posted theirs, as they remembered that the post man does not deliver on Sundays!

Men are notoriously difficult to buy presents for. If you’re a man and a father, you’l probably have a much better idea than anyone else, but we thought we’d suggest a few ideas in case you want to spoil your old man and are stuck!

First of all, think of his hobby. What does he enjoy doing in his spare time? There are usually some gadgets that can make him even more of an expert! Take barbecues for example. Every man likes to take charge when he’s grilling, proving his mastery of meat. If he already has a nice barbecue, think how you could add to the experience for him. Maybe a swish pair of tongs, or a belt designed for holding his cooking tools. As a last resort, there’s always the novelty apron!

Golfing is a popular past time for dads; a chance to get away for a while and enjoy the peace and quiet. Buy him some new clubs to make his day; it’s like giving your blessing to escape the family for a short time! For the fishermen out there, why not upgrade his equipment? You don’t have to buy him live bait if you’re squeamish, but a new rod or a comfy stool would go down well.

Whatever you decide, make sure that it’s a special day for your old dad, one to remember.
