With Father’s Day fast approaching, it’s time to start thinking about what to get him as a gift. If every year you feel like you are buying him the same old stuff- stuff for his car, tools for the garden, or a shirt, maybe it’s time to start thinking outside the box. Experience gifts are a great gift idea for Father’s Day as you are giving him something to look forward to and it might be something he has never done before. Below are a few ideas to help you.
Murder Mystery Experience
Is your dad the one who is always solving mysteries such as who ate the last piece of cake? Then a murder mystery break could be right up his street. Ukbreakaways offer a three course dinner, bed and breakfast accommodation and all have a murder mystery theme, which has been carefully chosen for ultimate entertainment. Some even request for you to dress up in costume related to the theme. Check out some of their dates and locations here.
Is your dad car obsessed? Is he forever talking about cars? Then he will definitely love this gift. There are so many supercar experiences on the internet at different prices depending on your budget and how long your dad will be in the car for. They are also offered at many different locations so be sure to find one that isn’t too far to travel to.
If you are looking for a gift out of the ordinary then a Helicopter lesson or flight could be the ultimate gift for your dad this Father’s Day. You can choose from a variety of locations across the UK for a practical flying session, or just go on a helicopter flight and enjoy the experience along with the stunning views.
If your dad is a busy business man, he might prefer to take a break and take the chance to unwind. Therefore a spa experience might be the ideal gift for him this Father’s Day. There are a range of different spa experiences you can get depending on your budget. With some you can only use the facilities such as the swimming pool, sauna and steam room etc. However some packages include 2 or 3 treatments and lunch. You can also book overnight stays at spas, it depends how much you wish to spoil him.
For dads who love the adrenaline rush, a skydiving experience doesn’t get much better. Whether that is indoor skydiving or if he is the ultimate daredevil and would prefer to take on tandem skydiving. There are also other options such as parachute jumps and bungee jumping experiences available, so decide what would be more appropriate for your dad.
