Father’s Day 2023 is just around the corner, which means it’s almost time to indulge that special father – or father figure – in your life! Father’s Day is a longstanding tradition in the UK and many parts of the world, yet the annual event has some very surprising origins as Heart explains:
“This may come as a surprise to some, but Father’s Day was actually created by a woman in 1909. Sonora Smart Dodd sought to establish an official equivalent to Mother’s Day, celebrating male parents. After garnering support from local businesses in Washington, the state celebrated the first ever Father’s Day a year later, on June 19, 1910.”
Whether you’re celebrating Dad this Father’s Day, treating your stepdad or grandpa, buying for your partner on behalf of your own children, or paying homage to Mum, our rundown of top gifts will certainly provide all the inspiration you need as well as the gift they deserve.
