Father’s Day gift ideas 2021

It’s Father’s Day this weekend, and if you’re not already sorted, we’ve being taking a look around to see what gifts and treats you can indulge your daddy with this Sunday.

Something to wrap…

Mega dad gift boxFromie Gifts have got a great range of gift boxes on offer – all containing a slightly different selection of local products, including Still Sisters’ gin, ale from the Frome Brewing Co and Upcy coffee.

Pop into Figgins for a great selection of cards and gifts, perfect for the difficult-to-buy-for dads. From keyrings and games, to socks and chocs, there’s sure to be something to suit all tastes and sense of humours!

Something to eat (or drink)…

Selection of meats and cheeseIf you don’t feel your culinary skills are up to scratch, but you’d like to indulge your Dad with a foodie treat, take a look at the Big Daddy Graze box, courtesy of Events Horizon and their friends at Still Sisters and the Frome Brewing Company.

Tuck into a selection of scotch egg, pork pie, cured meats, cheese, crackers, pickles, chutneys and salad with a choice of beer or gin and tonic to wash it down. Veggie option available.

Message @kerenscomfortkitchen or @eventshorizonofficial to book collection or delivery from Friday 18th to Sunday 20th.

If you’re up for cooking but need a helping hand, White Row Farm shop are offering a surf and turf deal, providing the key ingredients for this classic dish. Or let their chefs do the hard work and sit back and relax in their lovely outdoor (or indoor) space.

Want to skip the food and stick to drink? Frome Brewing Company have a couple of Father’s Day specials on offer which include a mini keg of their Funky Money ale.  Their classic Ultimate Beer Lover’s Gift Box is also sure to be a winner for dads who like their ale.

Or you could throw some cheese into the mix and take a look at Palmer Street Bottle’s cheese and beer (or wine) subscriptions.

Something to do…

Man playing saxophoneIf you’re looking for things to do, the Merlin Theatre is welcoming Legends of Swing to the ECOS amphiteahtre on Sunday afternoon. So why not, pack up a picnic full of dad’s favourites (or get Events Horizon to do it for you) and sit back and enjoy live music and hopefully more sunshine.

Or for a more intimate gig, book a table at The Cornerhouse to see the return of regular jazz pianist Graham Dent, this time joined by Adrian Smith on double bass.

Motor enthusiasts could head to the Haynes Motor Museum where dad’s can enjoy free entry this Father’s Day. After exploring the Museum, challenge Dad to a go-kart race with their new, technical track layout and F1 style race control systems. Dads can drive for free (together with one full paying driver) as long as you’re up for racing against him. Dads race for free for 20 and 30 minute sessions after 12:30pm – pre-booking essential.

For those looking for something more ‘hands on’, Five Rivers are running a Blacksmithing workshop for Father’s Day, where they’ll get to spend the day learning blacksmithing in the forest with Simon the blacksmith and his travelling ‘Nowhere Forge’.

Lastly, why not head over to Brokerswood to treat your dad to a spot of archery or axe throwing with the Wiltshire Outdoor Learning team.
