Tue 24 Oct 2023

We’re pretty sure most dads don’t want socks again…or a book token…or more slippers.


After a few years of buying him presents for Father’s Day, his birthday and Christmas, you can be forgiven for running out of ideas. But you want to get him something special, something that’ll show him just how much you appreciate him.


So, what's a good present for Father’s Day? Let’s explore a few ideas and hopefully you can find something that he’ll really want.


Father's Day experience gift ideas


What can you get someone for Father's Day? Well, if you get them an experience, it certainly won’t sit unused and just gather dust. He’ll remember it for years.


An experience gift lets your dad try something new and exciting, or pursue a long-held passion. And there are now so many incredible experiences to choose from, there’s sure to be one that’s just right for the father figure in your life.


A driving day


Looking for memorable Father's Day gift experiences ideas? Well what about a thrilling day of racing a supercar around a track? Or perhaps he’d prefer a stylish classic car? Or maybe a high-powered motorbike?


Some packages include the chance to drive multiple vehicles, giving him the opportunity to sample some of his favourite makes and models. While other deals get him a front-row passenger seat for a high-speed professional ride.


If you’re buying for someone who likes an adrenaline hit every now and again, this is definitely the Father’s Day gift for him.

A cookery class


Does your dad like to conjure up magic in the kitchen? If you have a foodie father figure, he’ll definitely love the chance to learn from the professionals.


From pasta to pastry, and Chinese food to chocolate, there are so many types of cookery classes available. Some even take place in stylish restaurants, known for their celebrity chefs, where your culinary dad will feel right at home.


He’ll pick up impressive new skills from his expert-led workshop, so he can wow his next dinner guests. If you’re lucky, he might even make you dinner as a thank you.


Wine tasting experience


It doesn’t matter if your dad’s a connoisseur or simply likes the odd glass of white, red or rose. A wine tasting tour or tasting experience will always go down well.


These experiences are often accompanied by cheese tasting, but sometimes they come with desserts or even a tasty meal. There are also hotel stays, if you’re feeling extra generous this Father’s Day.


He could tour a vineyard, enjoying some fresh country air as he learns all about the processes and grapes that go into delicious wines. Or he could visit the wine cellar of a stylish restaurant. Either way, he’ll learn a lot from the experts on hand and probably discover some favourite new vintages along the way.


A glamping experience


Did your father figure take you camping when you were a kid? Well here’s your chance to return the favour, without the hassle and discomfort you might remember from childhood camping trips.


This is camping with a difference.


There are yurts, treehouses, camping pods, caravans and log cabins to choose from, but they all offer plenty of home comforts. Glamping is cosy, rather than cramped.


And, of course, glamping will give him a chance to soak up some nature, getting away from it all in our beautiful countryside.


Flying lesson


Father's Day experience gift ideas don’t get any more exciting than this.


Whether it’s a plane or a helicopter, a flying lesson will see him soaring over the countryside. Flying lessons are now available all over the UK. An expert pilot will get them up in the air, before handing over the controls so your dad can feel the exhilaration of flying for himself.


Flying a plane or helicopter might be something he only ever dreamed of doing. But you can make it a reality for him.


A matchday hospitality experience at an Arsenal game


Give him a day to remember with a matchday hospitality experience at Emirates Stadium. He’ll enjoy top-class football and VIP treatment – at one of the Premier League's most iconic stadiums, where the hospitality is just as good as the football. Seat him in the thick of the action in the stands, or in a luxurious VIP box.


All hospitality packages come with complimentary drinks and delicious food. Some packages even include the chance to meet Arsenal legends from past years.


There aren’t many Father's Day gift experience ideas that can beat the thrill of a match at Emirates Stadium. It’s a guaranteed crowd-pleaser.



Feeling a bit more confident you can find the perfect Father’s Day gift? Experience days are gifts that are never forgotten. They’re truly special occasions, where he can try something completely new or spend valuable time doing the things he loves. Pick the right one and your special someone will have an incredible Father’s Day.
