Why hampers make the ideal gift for dad this Father’s Day

April 01, 2021

Let’s face it, dads are notoriously hard to buy for! No matter the occasion, whether you’re looking for a present for their birthday or searching for the perfect Christmas gift, they always seem to be one of the hardest to buy for. And if you ask them what they would like, nine times out of ten you get an answer along the lines of ‘I don’t know’ or ‘I don’t need anything’. So, with Father’s Day fast approaching if you’re currently scratching your head and lost for ideas, the team at the Awesome Hamper Company are here to make life a little easier for you.

Historically, Father’s Day was inspired by Mother’s Day back in the 20th century - after all, if there is a day specifically celebrating mums, it's only fair that dads get in on the action too, right? Originally, Father’s Day emerged in the USA, but it was quickly picked up here in the UK and soon became an annual celebration of appreciation for the men in our lives.

Today, you could easily get inundated with the abundance of gifts which appear for dads around Father’s Day. As a result, it's no wonder that many people feel overwhelmed when it comes to picking the perfect Father’s Day gift.

In this blog we’ll give you the low down on some of our favourite ideas for Father’s Day, including some of our very own creations from the Awesome Hamper Company!
