Those of you organised enough to forward plan these things, will be aware that Father’s Day is coming up on Sunday 17th June.
As a father myself, with limited space in my sock draw, I am running a one-man crusade for everyone to think more creatively when it comes to buying presents for males.
(I made the fatal mistake of mentioning that I quite like Toblerones to one of my in-laws, which means that every birthday and Christmas, I am presented with even more of the triangle shaped, Swiss chocolates. I’m sick of them now!)
So, on behalf of males everywhere, who are too polite to say anything, I am urging you, the Sheffield public, to think outside the box.
Typically on Father’s Day, us males are presented with whatever is on offer at Tesco or a bottle of spirits chosen hurriedly from the local Co-Op. Coupled with the fact that men are historically much harder to buy for, this has resulted in an abundance of unread autobiographies, unworn pairs of novelty pants and furry slippers which are worn once and then lost under the bed.
To combat this, and to give the man in your life the opportunity to choose a gift that he really loves, why not buy him a Sheffield Gift Card? These can be purchased in any amount from £5 and can be redeemed at over 80 venues across Sheffield city centre. From popular department stores, including John Lewis and Argos, to independent venues such as Showroom and The Forum, he’ll be spoilt for choice. . . Who knows’ he might even use it to treat you to a meal or a night out.
Purchase your Sheffield Gift Card here and have it delivered in time for Father’s Day on 17th June. He’ll thank you for it.
