Ah, good old papah. With his shabby slippers and his adorkable Bad Dad Jokes. Soon, it will be time again to give him that extra hearty hug and some goodies, just to say “yer olroit, dah”. Yep, Father’s Day is coming.
But what goodies to bring? What would cause a twinkle of delight to the eyes of a man that already has a lovely family? Besides some chocolate and a bag of chips?
Well, let us help you out there. We’re pretty sure you can’t go wrong with a beautiful bird box camera kit or handcrafted hedgehouse. Whilst munching on his chips, your dad could be watching all the happenings of the feathered family he is ‘fostering’ in the garden. Or he could proudly show his grandchildren or tell his friends and neighbours all about the hedgehogs pottering about in that sturdy hog feeding station out back. It’s about the simple things in life. Observing and being involved with what’s real and heartwarming. Directly connecting with nature, learning more about animals’ hidden habits, can be a daily joy to look forward to. Whether it’s with or without camera, from the sofa in front of the telly, on the PC or a mobile device, seated by the window feeder, or outside on a lazy lounge chair, simply hearing the bird babas cheep.
No matter the garden visitor he’s watching over, with one of these homely pressies, he’ll feel like the King of the Hill. And a nice one at that, as it’s not only interesting, cool stuff to watch, but it really helps the wee critters as well. Wildlife sure can do with our support these days, and who better to help out than dear old dad?
That being said, they’re not just for typical Papa Bears! Mums will love these gifts too, and anyone else that may be filling the role of a real hero in your life. Whoever you’re thinking of this Father’s Day, give them something true, wild and full of life!
