The Sporty Dad

With Summer basically here and beautiful, long, warm evenings stretching ahead of us it is the perfect opportunity for Dad to touch up the tennis skills and refresh the summer sports kit. For the Dad's out there who love their summer games then a gift from Priory Sports could be the perfect option. With kit and equipment for a variety of different activities, Priory Sports could easily hold the perfect Father's Day gift.



The Outdoor Dad

Summer is also the ideal time to plan camping trips, long walks out in the country and a few sailing adventures out on the Christchurch bay. Head over to our fantastic Millets store here at Saxon Square and you will find everything you need to make these trips as brilliant as your Dad would want them to be. Would he like a new camping stove, a pair of brand new walking shoes, a lighter jacket for wearing out at sea? Millets will have all the answers in a fabulous variety of styles and colours to suit every father.



The Health and Fitness Fanatic Dad

If health and fitness is important to your dad then a trip to Holland and Barrett will give you plenty of brilliant options. Sports nutrition is often a popular choice and their range of proteins and pre-workout supplements is extensive with flavours and benefits a plenty. You can also find a range of energy bars and gels which are brilliant for any runners our there. Alternatively, if your Dad enjoys a bit of healthy cooking then there are some fantastic products for both baking and cooking that will be right up his street. Don't forget to also pop into The Bay Tree and The Grape Tree as there is also a huge range of similar products here too. 



The 'Bad-Dad-Jokes' Dad

Is your Dad the master of 'Bad-Dad-Jokes'? Does he think he is funnier than any stand up comedian and that he would easily out-wit Russell Howard with his humour? There are plenty of jokey gifts from Flaming Noras that will be right up his street. Pop in and see if anything tickles your fancy! It could even be time to to get your own back and play a practical joke on him.... just be sure that you think he will find it funny :)



The Sentimental Dad

If you fancy showing your Dad some appreciation with a slightly more sentimental product then perhaps you need to visit Atelier, the gorgeous new art and design store here at Saxon Square. They have a beautiful range of bespoke Father's Day gifts, perfect for if you are wanting to give him something a little more personal and from the heart. 



The DIY Dad

If Dad likes his DIY gadgets and fancies himself a bit of a fix-it man around the house the a bright and shiny new tool could suit him perfectly. This Guild 1.5AH Li-on Hammer Drill from Argos is top of the range and the gorgeous green colour makes it oh so trendy too. This is the perfect new tool for putting together some new outdoor seating this summer and Dad will get plenty of use out of it!




The Hungry Dad

Everyone knows that the way to a man's heart is through his stomach so why not play on this well known fact this Father's Day. You don't need to spend a lot of money to make your Dad smile. Simply treat him to his favorite pastry and sweet bun from Greggs and he will be content for the rest of the week! Oh and don't forget to treat yourself whilst you are there too...



All that is left for us to say is that we wish you all a wonderful Father's Day and happy shopping here at Saxon Square in lead up to it :)
