At Headline Printers, we want to help you to celebrate Father’s Day by giving your Dad something truly unique that makes him feel special. As Father’s Day approaches, many of us will mark the day by buying our father gifts to show how much we appreciate them. But where did this tradition come from and why do we celebrate it?
The history of Father’s Day
This year we will celebrate Father’s Day in the UK on Sunday the 19th June. Whether it’s a pub lunch or a visit to your Dad, it’s a tradition started over 100 years ago in the USA and it’s thought to have inspired us to mark the day here. Dads are important, we look to them throughout our lives for love, boundaries, and often someone who teaches us. They can be a massive influence on their child and an important part of their development
What to buy him?
Let’s be honest Father’s Day is just not as simple as Mother’s Day. You know you’re onto a winner with Mother’s Day with a lovely card, flowers, smellies or chocolates. Your Dad is a somewhat more difficult proposition. We’ve all been there in the shop despairingly looking at socks for inspiration. The best gifts are those that have been thought about and perhaps something that they will use every single day so this year why not make the effort to get your Dad a personalised mug and create the perfect photo gift. Order from just 1 on either a plain white or colour accented mug. Our accent mugs are available in a choice of 7 vibrant colours and have a matching inside and handle. Or make the image impactful and personal with a canvas print.
Send a more meaningful message with greetings cards from Headline Printers’ comprehensive special occasions collection. Printed greetings cards are the perfect way to add a personal touch to any occasion. Our cards are printed on a selection of premium papers and available in a variety of sizes, choose from finishing options including foiling and laser cutting to craft truly unforgettable personalised greetings cards. As greeting card printers, we include peel & seal envelopes as standard.
Make your Dad feel special with gift wrap
It is surprising how effective the way you wrap your gifts can be. Even the slightest touch such as a unique gift tag can make all the difference. If you’re looking to personalise gift tags and add something unique to your price tags, Swing Tag printing is a cost-effective solution for adding some simple messaging. Nothing adds a personal touch like custom Gift Tag printing. Available with square, or rounded corners. You can choose from sizes 85 x 55mm or 55 x 55mm and we’ll print your personalised Gift Tags on Recycled Uncoated, Textured, Mowhawk Eggshell, Kraft or Silk paper so you can pop your own handwritten message on the back!
These little personalised touches with some thoughtful words about how much your Dad means to you can make all the difference. There is something special about a hug from your Dad, and nothing beats that feeling of emotional security they give you so let them know how loved they are this Father’s Day.
