This year Fathers’ Day is Sunday 19th June and I have to admit that it is normally up to me to pick a gift I know Hubby will love and appreciate.
Tesco have Fathers’ Day Gifts for all types of Dad’s with ideas for the music lover, film buff, sports mad, green fingered, foodie and even the quirky difficult to buy for kind and they have challenged me to let the kids pick their ideal gift for Dad.
I am not sure if their idea of the perfect presents were more for them than him:
Kian (15) veered between letting Dad have a nice long sleep, or installing a long zip wire in the garden. Now our garden is not much bigger than a postage stamp so not quite sure how that would work, but we could always extend it into the park behind the house I guess.
Isaac (8) wants to buy Dad the Ghostbusters Ecto One car. Hubby hates driving but I think even he would quite enjoy turning up to work in this, with Isaac kitted up in full Ghostbusters gear and a proton pack attached to his back to defend him against ghouls and ghosts (or the customers at work).
I am not sure it is a practical vehicle for the long-term though.
Eliza (5) knows Daddy likes Star Wars and wants to get him the “little round robot“. I think she means the BB8 Droid and he would be quite handy to have around the home, getting all those DIY chores done so Hubby doesn’t have to do them and has more time to play.
Sebastian (almost 3) wants to get Daddy “Big Mater” from Disney Cars. I guess he would be quite handy if Ecto One breaks down.
So there you have it, looks like it is up to me to get the sensible presents again this year, although we might just be able to arrange a lie in for him on Fathers’ Day.
