This year Father’s Day falls on Sunday June 19th, so be sure to get that date in your diary to celebrate your superhero! Besides breakfast in bed and lots of cuddles… what do give him for his big day?
Counting on that the Scandinavian Dad will not read this… But we will be treating him to breakfast in bed; Newspaper, a double espresso in his favourite cup, Miss A will probably be making her classic Lemon Drizzle… Then he entirely chooses how we will spend the day.
But it is always nice to surprise him with a gift as well. In case he actually reads this, I’m not going to share what we’ll be getting for him this year. But to help out, we’ve included some ideas below…
1. Butchery Class
Picture is of the fruit and veg hamper rather than lots of raw meat as the hamper looked more appealing…
Men like to be manly and what better way to let him show off his masculine side than treating him to an evening with chopping some meat? A hands-on butchery class will give him a good grounding in traditional butchery skills, give advice on how to buy meat and get the most from each cut. Expect lots of bbq this Summer!
For the Serious Meat Lover: Father’s Day Steak Butchery Class 19/6 12-13:30 £150 at The Quality Chop House
As soon as a man is entering the kitchen there will soon to follow be new kitchen gadgets, sharpened knives, new cook books and – his apron. And only the best will do for your very own Masterchef. The Organic Company is a Danish design company which creates meaningful and tasteful home accessories from 100% GOTS certified organic cotton, including this professional apron, apparently used by chefs working in Gordon Ramsey’s restaurants. The Long Apron is made for heavy kitchen use. Made in cotton twill, which stands strong and yet still nice wash after wash. Made for industrial kitchens as well as you and me.

3. Grooming – Home SPA
No burning candles or rose water please… Give him a proper salt scrub directly sourced from nature! For centuries, sea salts and seaweed have been used in bathing and spa treatments to provide your skin with much needed nutrients, while also softening and revitalising. Not only does L:A Bruket spa and bathing products look masculine but the whole product range has been inspired by Scandinavian authentic well-being rituals, created for skin that have endured the harsh Nordic coastal living conditions.
