If you’re stumped on what to get your father or the father of your child for Father’s Day, you usually can’t go wrong with spending some time with them and buying some food. Let’s face it, everyone loves something yummy and opening up a food package, exploring it and treating yourself with things you wouldn’t usually get to have is a real luxury. This is especially true for men like my husband, who don’t really want or need any physical items. An edible gift is something that will be used, so it’s ideal for minimalists, people with limited space, or the dad that simply has everything already.
I was recently asked to try out a small hamper from Prestige Hampers who have put together a Father’s Day range for gifts. These have a good range starting at under £20 and then going upwards, so it’s possible to find something for any budget. Since I was asked to share my thoughts, we opened it early and we decided to open it together which was a lot of fun. It came well packaged, in a nice box (recyclable, but also quite a handy size for reusing for storage) and the items were nestled inside invitingly – very safe and secure!
The hamper that I’d been gifted included a bottle of Camden Hells Lager and Camden Pale Ale, a cheese truckle, oatcakes and chutney and some Mexican chilli nuts. These all complimented each other very well and I’m pleased to say he was willing to share it with me. We drank a bottle of beer, enjoyed cheese, crackers and chutney and chomped on some (rather spicy!) nuts. It was a relatively small and simple gift – but a very nice treat, and presented in a nice way that I’d be happy to give as a gift.
On the whole I think that a food hamper is a lovely idea for Father’s Day, and far better than buying my husband clutter that he doesn’t really need. Pair it with spending some time together as a family and perhaps something small, sentimental and personalised and you have the perfect Father’s Day. Don’t forget to give him a lie in too!
