Fathers Day is just around the corner (Sunday June 16th, FYI – you’re welcome!) and we know you want to show your old man how much you appreciate him by making sure he gets something special on the big day.

If your dad doesn’t live in the same country as you though (maybe he moved across the pond to make the most of the sunnier climes – we can’t say we blame him if that’s the case!) you’re going to have to get organised and make sure you post your gift early to make sure he gets it on time.

Whether you’re sending an expensive gift or a novelty item that he will find utterly hilarious, you want peace of mind when it comes to posting it. Parcelforce is a great option when it comes to shipping gifts; post your items with confidence knowing they will get there as quickly, safely, and easily as possible.


So that’s the easy part out the way, now it’s the hard part… what are you going to get him? If you’re stuck for ideas, here are 5 Brit-inspired suggestions to help get the ball rolling:

Personalised wooden heart

Keep Britain in his heart with this made-to-order piece. Personalise the text to say whatever you want – it can be as sentimental and soppy as you like; the choice is yours!

Union Jack leather wallet

We love this faded Union Jack wallet – perfect if your dad loves a bit of retro and vintage. Lots of space for cards and cash – putting a cheeky £20 in there for him to find is completely optional!

Union Jack iPad sleeve

If your dad’s a bit of a gadget geek with his own iPad, this is definitely the right gift for him as he’ll want to protect his toy when he’s not using it. And there’s no better accessory than a patriotic one!

Union Jack montage print

For the father who doesn’t do subtlety – this Union Jack montage print will do him nicely. Nobody will dispute where he hails from with this badboy in his house!

Personalised Union Jack print

This gift is the best of all worlds – it’s big, it’s loud, it’s fun, it’s patriotic – and will certainly earn you some ‘good son’ brownie points.
