This year it sits the day after Robert’s 6th birthday party, the week before we’re heading off on a camping holiday and 2 weeks before Freddie’s birthday.
All of which is basically to say: I have made absolutely no use out of father’s day this year, as a blogger.
Which is quite annoying really – I had planned to write a gift guide like I usually do, and I even had a few people contact me with suggestions of gifts. Unfortunately, I left it far too late and now I’ve written myself into a corner, so to speak.
Luckily, the one person who actually offered to send me some gifts to try out – Virgin Experience Days – would make an IDEAL last-minute Father’s Day gift if you’re as badly prepared as me!
I’ve actually been to a few Virgin days before, and I’m due to take a trip up ‘The Shard’ in the very near future too – I’m sure I’ll bore you all with the photos when I do! But my point is: I can actually attest to these being a GREAT gift idea for dad, as I’ve been on lots and they’ve all been pretty awesome.
Whether you want to go Go-Karting (I do!), go out for a nice meal (yes please!), go sight-seeing in London (wave if you pass my office!) or simply learn a new skill, Virgin have got an experience to suit you – and they’ve got a wide range of prices too, so you don’t need to shell-out a tonne of money.
Anyway, when I’ve taken my trip up The Shard I’ll tell you how it goes – and if it is anything less than amazing, I promise I’ll come back here and eat my words! :)
