Father’s Day is the perfect opportunity to spend quality time with dad and make him feel like number one! There are SO many fun and thoughtful ways to mark the celebration, from treating him to Father’s Day gifts he’ll love to enjoying some wholesome Father’s Day activities.
Whether you’re shopping for your dad or buying bits from the kids, our guide is jam-packed with unique gift ideas and inspo on things to do on Father’s Day.
How Can I Make Father’s Day Special?
The best way to make this Father’s Day one to remember is by embracing all his favourite things and spending quality time together.
Fill the day with all his beloved past-times and fun Father’s Day activities like treating him to a lie-in or prepping his fave meal (grown-up supervision, please!). And last but by no means least, surprise him with a thoughtful Father’s Day gift.
There’s no better way to put a smile on dad’s face than by gifting him his favourite aftershave. Whether he prefers a light and refreshing scent or a deep musky fragrance, we’ve got THE most dapper collection of men’s aftershave for you to check out.
The added bonus of buying dad a new perfume? When you swap hugs, you’ll be greeted with a wonderful aroma and he’ll be reminded of you every time he sprays – how lovely!
Name a more iconic duo than dad and his BBQ? We’ll wait! With Father’s Day falling right in the midst of summer (woohoo!), it would be rude not to host a BBQ – right?
You can start the celebrations off by treating him to shiny new BBQ tools – just grab yummy BBQ food and get grilling!
Once you’ve delighted your tastebuds with burgers, ice-creams and more, keep him grinning from ear to ear by playing some fun outdoor games or sports.
Add a personal touch to a thoughtful present and create a homemade Father’s Day gift hamper. Find a large gift box or simply upcycle an old shoebox with wrapping paper and fill it with all of dad’s fave goodies.
If it’s their first Father’s Day, look back on magical moments by including a photo frame with family pictures or drawings inside their hamper…aww.

Dress In Father And Son Matching Outfits
Get matchy-matchy this Father’s Day and kit up in father and son matching outfits. Remember, matching doesn’t have to mean identical. They can echo their superheroes vibe by coordinating colours and outfit styles or simply rocking a few of their fave accessories.
Little ones will love dressing like a grown-up for the day, and there will be plenty of photo opportunities – don’t forget to tag us @GeorgeAtAsda on Insta or TikTok for a chance to be featured on our grid. We’ll be waiting!
Soaking up the sunshine and getting out and about is a fantastic family activity. An instant mood booster, quality bonding experience and a fab way to keep fit!
Incorporate all of dad’s much-loved sports and hobbies and set sail for a day full of excitement.
Start the day off with a morning hike, stop for a midday picnic and finish with an adventure sport he’s always wanted to try.
Experiences always make brilliant gifts, and a session of rock climbing, white water rafting or winding down a zip lane will make this Father’s Day one to remember!
Grow Your Garden
For dads who can’t get enough of gardening, support their favourite pastime and upgrade their kit with some swanky new gardening tools.
Looking after plants and flowers is a fun job for all the family and a Father’s Day activity that will bring you all together. Find a special spot, sew a seed and plant a tree which will grow as your family does.
If you’re working with little green fingers, choose seeds for easy-to-grow veggies instead.
Unwind In PJs
And just like that, it’s nearly bedtime! After a day filled with fun and magical memories, it’s time to catch some well-needed Zzz’s. Treat them to a gift that keeps on giving with a fresh set of men’s PJs from our men’s nightwear shop.
We’ve got a style for every Marvel fan and avid gamer with cosy pyjamas featuring PlayStation and character prints. Treat tired feet to a pair of plush men’s slippers – we apologise in advance for any snoring!
